    SO WHAT?!?!

    THE COACH SAID NOTHING ABOUT WHAT THE PLAYERS SHOULD DO. HE SAID HE DIDNT CARE IF THEY STOOD, KNEELED, OR ANYTHING.

    HE JUST DIDN'T WANT THE TEAM SPLIT UP, BECAUSE HE FELT BEING TOGETHER AND A TEAM WAS MORE IMPORTANT.

    THE ENTIRE TEAM DECIDED TO STAY IN THE LOCKER ROOM.

    VILLANUEVA DIDN'T.

    TOMLIN, HIS TEAMMATES... EVERYONE SAID THEY LOVE THE GUY, RESPECT THE GUY.

    TOMLIN JUST SAID HE WISHED THE WHOLE TEAM HAD DONE THE SAME THING SO IT WOULDNT BE A GIANT DISTRACTION FROM FOOTBALL, WHICH IT CLEARLY WAS.

    VILLANUEVA APOLOGIZED TO HIS TEAMMATES AND COACH, AND EXPLAINED IT WAS LARGELY A MISTAKE... HE GOT CAUGHT BEHIND SOMEONE GOING THROUGH THE TUNNEL.

    THAT'S IT.

    WTF hosting a dinner for Hillary Clinton has to do with a coach wanting his team to stay united and not distracted is beyond me.

    People are SO INSANELY desperate to make this something that it isn't. It is baffling to me.

    I genuinely believe that most of the people in this conversation haven't read Tomlin's or Villanueva's actual own words... and certainly not Villanueva's comments on Kaepernick or Trump.

    Christ almighty.

    I don't mind at all but then again I'm not one of the people whining about respecting the flag which is really just an excuse to obfuscate the issue being protested...

    Carry on young lady

    This has gone full circle on facebook. Kinda funny. Now the anti-protest people are protesting, and the pro-protesters are anti-protesters.

    Whining over someone kneeling quietly, peacefully, and nonviolently but calling other people triggered?

    Does not compute

    You spelled disagreeing wrong. But I know some of you folk on the left don't do so well with people who disagree with you.

    Yeah, thats the one thing I cant get over. Easily offended people calling others snowflakes.

    Its almost that time of the year that said people also declare that theres a war on Christmas and that Starbucks and their cups must be stopped.

    Were they disagreeing? Because from those responses, it looks like it was likely just name calling... someone crying about triggers or snowflakes? Because some of the folk on the right don't do so well with civil discussion ;)

    Can you address or/and refute a single thing he said?

    Yes, I can refute lots of what he said. But you gotta ask yourself, what's it actually going to accomplish? Answer? Nothing. Not a damn thing. So why would I do something that won't make a bit of difference?

    Sounds like you think it's good fodder for trolling someone on the Internet, though.

    When you put something on the internet, it's always on the internet. Doesn't matter if it was 5 years ago or yesterday. Any dumbass knows that.

    I saw this posted on another forum and thought it might be thought provoking here. JFTR, I haven't read this thread since Sunday morning - I can only read the same shit from the same people so many times before I get numb to it and I lose interest - so I have no idea if anthem kneeling is still being discussed. I just wasn't aware this interaction ever took place and thought the story itself was interesting..



    "Aug 14, 2016- Colin Kaepernick sits for the national anthem.....and no one noticed
    Aug 20th, 2016- Colin again sits, and again, no one noticed.
    Aug 26th, 2016- Colin sits and this time he is met with a level of vitriol unseen against an athlete. Even the future President of the United States took shots at him while on the campaign trail. Colin went on to explain his protest had NOTHING to with the military, but he felt it hard to stand for a flag that didn't treat people of color fairly.
    Then on on Aug 30th, 2016 Nate Boyer, a former Army Green Beret turned NFL long snapper, penned an open letter to Colin in the Army Times. In it he expressed how Colin's sitting affected him.
    Then a strange thing happened. Colin was able to do what most Americans to date have not...
    He listened.
    In his letter Mr. Boyer writes:
    "I’m not judging you for standing up for what you believe in. It’s your inalienable right. What you are doing takes a lot of courage, and I’d be lying if I said I knew what it was like to walk around in your shoes. I’ve never had to deal with prejudice because of the color of my skin, and for me to say I can relate to what you’ve gone through is as ignorant as someone who’s never been in a combat zone telling me they understand what it’s like to go to war. Even though my initial reaction to your protest was one of anger, I’m trying to listen to what you’re saying and why you’re doing it." Mr. Boyer goes on to write "There are already plenty people fighting fire with fire, and it’s just not helping anyone or anything. So I’m just going to keep listening, with an open mind. I look forward to the day you're inspired to once again stand during our national anthem. I'll be standing right there next to you."
    Empathy and understanding was shown by Mr. Boyer.........and Mr. Kaepernick reciprocated. Colin invited Nate to San Diego where the two had a 90 minute discussion and Nate proposed Colin kneel instead of sit.
    But why kneel? In a military funeral, after the flag is taken off the casket of the fallen military member, it is smartly folded 13 times and then presented to the parents, spouse or child of the fallen member by a fellow service member while KNEELING.
    The two decided that kneeling for the flag would symbolize his reverence for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice while still allowing Colin to peacefully protest the injustices he saw.
    Empathy, not zealotry under the guise of patriotism, is the only way meaningful discussion can be had. Mr. Kaepernick listened to all of you that say he disrespects the military and extended an olive branch to find a peace.
    When will America listen to him?"

    That's why you don't put personal shit on the internet to begin with. Especially if you are going to be confrontational. Any dumbass knows that.
