  1. Problem is that the NFL IS NOT "Football first" or they wouldn't pull off such pandering.

    Pandering such as 'cause/group/identity of the month', feminism (having MALE PLAYERS tell us that evil men beat women and it's NOT cool/pressing breast cancer awareness in an industry where MEN are the reason it exists -where's testicular/colon cancer awareness?), black power/pop music half-time shows, banning firearm commercials while accepting alcohol commercials…

    Basically, they're trying desperately to appeal to the very people that DON'T CARE about Football. More people watch the commercials in replay than actually CARE about the game – I guess they got the market they wanted. Hm.

  2. For the amount of money these players make to play the game they Love , it's not right that they take a knee during the National Anthem. That's a sign of disrespect for the flag, our country, the men and women who pay the ultimate price to defend our freedom and the Veterans who served our Country and the NFL should do something about it!! Fines, game suspensions and even a loss of income that's my opinion anyway.

  3. Everyone supporting this crap and Kapernick have missed the forest fire burning the trees down….KAPERNKCK IS A MUSLIM….DESTROY EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH, because that's the intended goal. He and his girlfriend are friends with Linda Sar-sow-er, so it's a high probability he was tapped and paid for this because of his NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL STAGE ACCESS…..and how many viewers is that?
    And what has happened is exactly what his/their intention is…destruction and the ignorant sheeple. bought the BS front story of cops oppressing blacks hook line sinker.
    Linda Sar-sow-er is affiliated with the Muslim brotherhood!

  4. The players made their choice. They chose to disrespect the people who buy their shit. I am replacing football with self improvement. Reading and working out on Sunday instead of having spoiled overgrown children preach there bullshit to me

  5. The truth of the matter is anything the NFL and players do after this to make up for it is fake. There IQs must be so low that they couldn't forsee how it can cost them. Now that they do I bet they will do some charity for veterans, or some charity work. but it's too late. It's obvious they have bought into that bullshit narrative that everyone who disagrees with them is a racist or a fascist. I am neither. But I am insulted by them saying that I am. Bye Broncos. The funny thing is that the Castro worshiping fanatics they are catering too will never watch there games or buy there merchandise lol

  6. Don't Buy Bud… The owners will enforce their ethics position to respect the anthem same as they do with their uniform, player's actions and speech on the field. Jocks can protest all they want but not during our anthem on the playing field. When bottles & cans of Bud sits on the shelf for a week, this insanity will end!

  7. The NFL and players are corrupt evil sadistic and racist, fuck your black power bullshit and shove it up your ass, do your kneeling in the locker room while you suck each other off, fuck you John Elway, I stand with Trump and the American flag

  8. Nah…as a life long Broncos and Elway fan and season ticket holder since I was a kid, after last weeks clownshow, I'm never watching or attending another Broncos game again.

  9. Phil Long and Jay Cimino made a nice decision, no more Van Jones endorsement, now if The Strong Arm and many other sponsors follow suit it will be a good start.

  10. remember BUDWEISER ,  PepsiCo, PAPA JOHNS, PIZZA HUT, TACO BELL, KFC, AND PEPSI, DORITOS, DANNON AND MORE ARE ALL SPONORS OF THE NFL

  11. No Elway football is not what the NFL is about anymore .The NFL is one of the biggest crime organizations .They have nothing but thugs and gang members becoming rich while they commit crimes and the NFL gets them out .They are now the National Felon League . And Americans are unaware that billions of tax dollars go to these criminals . Go to Wookies World on You Tube and you will be surprised at what you see and here .The stats are in on these criminals and you people need to quit paying for their criminal activity.

  12. Look, when the President of the United States of America only makes something like $1.5 million a year, and this jackass Nfl commissioner makes $50million a year!!!! There's something bad, bad wrong !!!

  13. Its the NFL Corporation doing this protest , it has ramped up every year lately .The NFL has finally been exposed to most of America, and their revenues will plummet. The NFL Allowed the "hands up don't shoot" lie on the field 2 yrs ago. With the STL Rams The NFL made SURE there was full network coverage of it! The liberal left NFL would Not allow a tiny Blue lives matter helmet sticker in Houston after 12 cops where shot in Houston 1yr ago by black man sworn to ISIS. Now the liberal left NFL ALLOW the USA national anthem disrespect. We are done with the POLITICAL LEFT NFL. FOREVER

  14. The few that desire to rip this country apart seem to be grabbing at anything they can get their hands on. Now its out of control when all we desire is to watch our favorite teams play. But, maybe the gladiator bouts are just about over as in the days of Roman power.

  15. Kaep is getting more and more pathetic, he should quit before even the assholes on the left start admitting what a fucking joke he is. I won't be watching any NLF

  16. Fuck ya John it's about fucking time. If it's hard for you simple minded fucks that are hurt by this, when you are at work are you just aloud to go protest on the company's time? No you get fired for that dumb shit. That's what football is to these guys there job…
