Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

Please, NFL teams do not exist to give players an international stage for promoting their personal and political beliefs at absolutely no cost to them whatsoever.

Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

Once again Bob, have you ever pledged allegiance to the flag? PhilX 🇺🇸 I have never, nor will I ever, pledge allegiance to any flag, including the AEP! This makes you a hypocrite regarding kneeling to the US flag. PhilX 🇺🇸 Please, I'm talking about an adverse effect a player's actions can have on t...

Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

Do you have any studies to back you up? PhilX 🇺🇸 Please, are you actually suggesting some kind of study is needed to show that team ownership does not give players free advertising to promote their political viewpoints to the world? Yes, a study is needed to show how team performance is affected an...

Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

Oh traitorous Bob, while we're on this topic, do you kneel when pledging allegiance to the flag? Aren't you the one who keeps saying you want to see one of our states secede? PhilX 🇺🇸 People who pledge allegiance to flags are idiots. Once again Bob, have you ever pledged allegiance to the flag? Phi...

Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

I think the key here is the idea of a political comment. The president in this context was condemning the idea of not respecting the anthem and/or flag. While he said the players should be fired, it was from the perspective of one opposed to their statement and manner of demonstrating it, not the f...

Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

Again, it is inappropriate for the president to comment on what players do on the football field as a political comment. However, team ownership has every right to control the actions of its employees in carrying out their jobs. ¿Entiende, por favor? Is pledging allegiance in the job description? P...

Re: President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

What I'm saying is that any employee anywhere who causes problems for his employer shouldn't be surprised when he's shown the door. And if I were the owner of the team who hired the singer that made her own political statement by kneeling at the end of our national anthem, I'd hold up her check unt...

President Trump's Comments About On-Field Political Protests by NFL Players

First of all, it is absolutely inappropriate for the president to comment on private matters of any kind. On the other hand, it is absolutely appropriate for NFL owners to immediately fire players who negatively affect team profitability.

Re: How God could fail to convey His message?

If someone is skeptical about something within a religion, you probably shouldn't resort to an example only those within that religion would accept, to sway said skepticism. Please, the fact that the spokesman for the Spiritual Counterfeits Project would even read "The Ouzo Prophecy," much less rep...
