Do you read what you write before posting?

"the consumer will always effect revenue" but "the public doesn't decide"?

When did the consumer of NFL games become not the public.

And equating the MLB strike where nearly half the season was lost to a handful of players kneeling? Really? Get a grip.

I was making fun of you Scott. Being sarcastic.

You said the public NOT watching will NOT effect current contracts. Then you turned around and said, "The public have very short attention spans." Shouldn't matter then in your mind, right? Either the public has control or not, make up your damn mind.

Either way, I've spelled it out. If you don't comprehend this conversation is over. Contracts or no contracts the consumer actions ALWAYS trickle down.

Good grief, man! Do you not read either?

I said that the down ratings (now) might effect the NEXT contract. In 2022.

I never said the public (in the form of ratings) have no impact. In fact, YOU said it.

I said that it is not immediate. The fact that the public has a short attention span relates to the impact of this "controversy." And, as I pointed out, the decline in ratings has a lot of factors; low on the list is taking a knee.

It's kind of hard to comprehend YOU when you put words in my mouth that you actual said, change positions, or just plain make shit up.

Not sure what the point of your link was. Kapernick hasn't played in 2017, so he hasn't had a chance to stand, sit, do hand stands during the national anthem wearing an NFL uniform.

And it repeated the point of the snoops link (from your link):

After meeting with former Green Beret and NFL long snapper Nate Boyer, Kaepernick?s protest shifted from sitting to taking a knee during the playing of the anthem.

Not to mention the military is not a "good" thing, per se.

It's existence is only a necessity because humans can't help themselves from being greedy, headstrong shitheads.

I think thats satire

when the national anthem plays, gamers can choose to have their player react in myriad ways beyond just standing or kneeling, to include raising a fist, taking off all their clothes, or to drink a tall, overpriced Budweiser out of a red cup like fans in the stadium.

The Dakota Myer is meeting Dan B at the monkey bars after school was pretty spot on (Byline - Homeroom).

“Dude, I’m a certified and sworn substitute teacher,” Bilzerian explained in the video. However, records show he actually failed out of substitute teacher certification twice.

You guys see this- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMoccJ98wuQ&t=14s

Crazy how the media still won't show the whole video... should be criminal. Everyone who threw blows should be in jail, including this asshole. He should be charged with fraud too.

My favorite one was a post after the MOAB was dropped in Afghanistan recently. It was something to the effect of "MOAB Dropped in Afghanistan, Americans Surprised to Learn US Military Still in Afghanistan."
