  1. Overpaid cry babies,not worth watching.

  2. The NFL is betting that this is a one season event and that they will ride out the storm.
    They couldn’t be more wrong…

  3. Can someone please confirm something so that I am in line with my liberal friends? These are friends who, despite being lefty, would normally be patriotic, but they all seem to be in total support of these kneeling athletes because it’s some kind of anti-Trump thing. Same deal with North Korea. They are all having this kind of pro Lil Kim thing going on. Am I right? I don’t want to get all de-friended and all that other unpleasantness. Thanks.

  4. We doesn’t matter if it belongs in a sport event or not they are being paid extremely big money to play a game they should stand sing dance you do what ever you have to do . and you shut your mouth. Then have working at NASA. What a fucking shame

  5. 6.31 . Unfortunately liberal and friends don’t go together. Liberals are like communists. One day they’re your friend , the next they can turn you in to police if they find you’re not in line with the marxist programe. I know this because I lived under such regime for a big chunk of my life. Unfortunately Trump with his endless idiocies makes these “friends” even more hardcore and in return the gap btw you and your “friends” becomes harder to manage. It seems like nowadays your choices will be between an idiot and a crook. I find an idiot to be less dangerous than a crook but time will tell. Both choices are terrible.
