    Its even worse if the league allowed this garbage to go on and they are taking DOD, our tax money, to honor the flag and anthem. It was 100% wrong to allow it at all.

    The players are as stupid as the commish.

    I've always wondered about that. The EPL has never played the British national anthem before a game. Anthems are only played when it's an international game between two countries.

    It appears some Cowboy players are speaking out “anonymously” JJ and the National Anthem.

    Scandrick waited for the press to enter the locker room before playing the song Fuck Donald Trump

    Idiot players need to wake up and face reality. They all look like fools and racists.

    Reportedly, Jerry talked to them and smoothed it over. Said he understood where they were coming from but still can't constitute dissing the flag and vets.
    1st -- Zeke Elliot, RB, OSU
    2nd -- Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech

    Serious question, the flag doesn't solely represent the military so why is the action of taking a knee during the anthem considered an insult to veterans?

    So Paea retired and Nolan Carroll was cut today.

    We signed some nobody LB to take one spot.

    Great times.
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    Maybe this will be what sets the team off and we will be lucky enough for Garrett to lose the locker room.

    That way it will actually be Jerry’s fault but he will have no one else to blame but Ginger. Because we all know Jerry wouldn’t take the blame for loosing the locker room. So his only recourse would be to fire Garrett

    Its all about country. And military guys put their lives on the line for the country. So its disrespecting the country and the guys that serve and protect the country.

    These "oppressed" multi-millionaires are basically saying "fuck you" to the United States. To be such ingrates is so unbelievable that I can only conclude those doing it have I.Q.s of sub 80 because it will destroy their ability to make a living if it keeps going.

    It is an insult to veterans who have fought, been injured, and died for that flag, and this country. And once again, they are only doing this during the anthem for attention because leftist know that people will ignore them otherwise. Most of us do not support leftists, their policies, and in fact, downright despise them because of shit exactly like this anthem protest. We WILL NOT listen to their constant bitching so they have to intrude upon our hobbies.

    I don't mean this to come off as terse towards you. Its just that this ridiculous bullshit chaps my ass. I'm tired of leftists ruining shit that was fun for me. I don't get any fun AT ALL from listening to leftists tell me what a sub-human piece of shit I am because I don't adhere to their religion of Marxism.

    I don't think a lot of people realize how popular communism has become among younger people. These kids weren't around to see the Soviet Union collapse and there aren't any big examples of it failing these days... other than Cuba, which of course is ignored or even glorified by our media.

    I don't know if it's our schools, or Hollywood, or just old terrible ideas promoted by social media, or a combination. But it's a real problem.

    So yes, for a lot of these young people -- which includes these athletes -- it is about hating this country.

    In any event, you've accomplished the near impossible......to have a thread closed/locked on DCU.

    I find it comical that millionaires want to be critical of a system and country where they had the opportunity to become millionaires with very little intellectual effort. They have a phenomenal athletic gift that is in high demand in the sports world. Good them, as I don't begrudge anyone who was able to enrich themselves legally.

    On the other hand, when you listen to Kap and he spews his bullshit wearing a Cuba/Castro t-shirt, any fool can see that he's completely out of touch with reality. It's absurd that this is the guy and philosophy some folks are defending.
