NFL players’ protests weren’t widespread in Sunday’s first games, but the demonstrations had not died out in Week 1.

Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson became the first players of the 2018 regular season to kneel in protest during the national anthem when they did so before Sunday’s contest against the Tennessee Titans. Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn also raised a fist during the song.

Stills and Wilson both kneeled in the preseason and said they planned to continue to do so in the regular season. Stills said he would consider stopping if former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began kneeling in 2016 as a means to protest racial inequality and police brutality, and former 49ers safety Eric Reid were signed by an NFL team.

I predict that now with the protests receiving national support from Nike and Ford Motors among others, that it will start to become more commonplace and soon there may well be several players kneeling on multiple teams. 

If that happens you will see Trump lose his everloving mind on Twitter and everyday Americans having to really think about the issue being presented by the protests.

I am not saying that this will end police shootings overnight, but it could conceivably push it into the consciousness of the country just like those civil rights marchers did back in the sixties. 

That is the only way that we can hope to see real change.

    The summary execution of black men at random shows no signs of ending anytime soon, either. It’s a malignancy.

    If game attendees are still allowed to buy beer and food; wait in line at restrooms; talk, eat and drink during the National Anthem then the quiet kneeling protest should considered far more respectful. The furor over players kneeling during the anthem is based on racism and ignorance. If football fans paid any attention to news stories, they might just find the reason why the players kneel. Too bad they’re more concerned about watching a GAME, not what is really happening in the world.

      NFL is retarded in the first place. Stand, kneel, sit, roll over, bend over – don’t care.

      If only they would pay attention to the facts that more than twice as many white people are shot and killed by the police every year than black people they would….. oh wait, that goes against their false narrative. Scratch that right cs?

    5 comments..your bottom feeders don’t give a shit about NFL and Colin Cancer

    There are 1696 NFL players and 00.5 percent of them protested. They only need 6 more protesters to
    get to 1%. Four of them took the chicken shit way out and stayed in the locker room.

    You’ll lose interest soon

      Colin Garland

      “Garland headed a travel company in Massachusetts and took students on guided trips abroad, exposing them to nature and teaching them about wildlife conservation. He also fashioned himself as a kind of New Age shaman, and for years, Laura convinced herself he’d been a trusted spiritual mentor.

      Though more than a decade had passed since she traveled to Costa Rica with Garland’s company, The Global Classroom, her memories of him were still vivid. Garland, who called himself “Medicine Owl,””
      “On the day he singled her out, she was 18, hammering nails into a new structure they were building as part of a trip project.”
      “As of the publication of this article, Laura has counted more than three dozen women who shared their own stories with her; HuffPost has spoken with 18.” “Multiple women claim he used his power as a trip leader ― and a self-proclaimed mystic — to gain their trust, and later pursued sex once they reached the age of consent under the guise of spiritual mentorship.”
      “in online chat messages after the trip, Garland encouraged Caitlin to send him naked photos, telling her it would help her come into her power.

      “When you take those pictures, spread yourself open to show your pink,” he wrote, claiming that the practice was part of Aboriginal teachings. “How I would love to see that image to know where you sit on the medicine wheel.” She declined to send him photos. ” ““He is misappropriating indigenous cultural traditions in order to lure young women to have sex with him,” said a former girlfriend of Garland’s who asked to remain anonymous. “I’m concerned about the impact of the ‘sexual ceremonies,’ if you want to call them that, on the women, and I feel horrible about not speaking up about it earlier.”

    Colin from Russia? Wow. G. You can’t get rid of Russians. We are swamped with them. Just WOW.

    This is not about the kneeling during the anthem; it is about WHAT their cause is. Do you think Trump would be throwing fits if a group of players started kneeling to protest loss of so called religious freedoms? To protest abortions?
    I think not.

      Is the cause for all the white people killed by police every year, like twice as many as black people?

      Is their cause about the astronomical black on black and black on white violent crime and murder rates?

    Didn’t Tim Tebow knee during the anthem to protest the flag that allowed abortions? Funny, I just found out about that.
