    What you’re saying is the equivalent to telling Rosa Parks to get to the back of the bus.

    Not a good look.

    The Woolworth lunch counter was private space.



    Those are the people you're trying to "reach" with your message.

    How about this, instead:

    No. They lose.

    Actually, the bus system in Montgomery, AL, was privately operated. The gov't dictated the rules of who sat where, but Rosa Parks was on private property.

    How do you feel about what Tommie Smith and John Carlos did in 1968?

    I hope the players keep kneeling.

    The Patriots and their fans should be ecstatic someone is still thinking about them and talking about them as they are about to slip into sports oblivion.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Ecstatic?? Granted,they've been on quite a run and all things eventually do come an end. Not sure of "about to slip into sports oblivion" though. Definitely be different walking up on game day and be able to get tickets.

    Who?

    Oh... some team that took advantage of a weak league to run off a few tainted titles, like the St. Louis Blues in the West Division in the 60s.

    The Houston Oilers were good for a while, too. Dust bin of history.

    Re: NFL 2018.1 The off season

    Roger Goodell may be commissioner of the NFL, but it is becoming increasingly clear that Jerry Jones runs the NFL.

    The Rams staking claim to Los Angeles two years ago with a mega stadium project? Jones made it happen, going against the wishes of the NFL’s relocation committee, which favored the Chargers-Raiders joint project. The Raiders landing in Las Vegas? Jones made it happen, becoming the guarantor for a massive loan from Bank of America.

    Jones personally stalled Goodell’s contract negotiations for several months last fall. He also is making money off four NFL teams other than his Cowboys, as Jones’s Legends Hospitality sells suites and naming rights for the 49ers, Rams, Chargers, and Raiders.

    And last week, even more proof emerged that the NFL caters to Jones’s demands. The Wall Street Journal obtained depositions from several owners in the Colin Kaepernick collusion lawsuit, and revealed that Jones spoke with Donald Trump last September, with the president advising Jones on how to proceed with the national anthem protest issue.

    The NFL league office wanted players to maintain their right to speak freely. Trump, Jones, and a handful of owners wanted the protests squashed.

    Guess which side won? The NFL’s new policy, revealed nearly two weeks ago, makes it clear that Jones and Trump got their way.

    The deposition also revealed that Jones was behind the ouster of Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s former VP of communications who verbally sparred with Trump over the kneeling issue last September. Lockhart was previously a White House spokesman under Bill Clinton, and he called Trump “out of touch” and said, “everyone should know, including the president, that this is what real locker-room talk is.”

    Lockhart is now a commentator with CNN. “I was proud to see him go,” Jones said in the deposition.

    Cowboys fans will be quick to note that Jones didn’t have the power to prevent Goodell from suspending Ezekiel Elliott for six games last fall. The big difference there — that was a management-union issue, and Goodell and the owners weren’t going to let Jones mess up the overwhelming power and control they have established over the NFL Players Association via Article 46.

    But when it comes to league matters and the business of the NFL, there is no question that Jones is now running the show.

    .
    I can’t believe that either of this are actually allowed. It just seems like there is all sorts of potential for shenanigans causing the integrity of the game to be questioned.
