What about when you bought that fancy new house?

I just know deep down inside it will just be another place for me to feel shame and anger towards MN sporting organizations.

Fair enough. That's everywhere you've lived though, right?

What a world we live in:

A judge just ruled that Donald Trump can't block people on Social media....its unconstitutional and violates free speech but....NFL players can't kneel before a football game

In defense of the NFL, it is a private organization though. They are allowed to set their own rules just like any employer/business/etc. This whole thing is so stupid and their rule is asinine but it's not unconstitutional or anything.

The NFL is gonna have a delightful mess on their hands this year when the national anthem plays and a bunch of players STILL choose to kneel in defiance of the rule and take the fine. Maybe a shitload of them in unison. Then see what the NFL does with all the egg on their face. Act draconian? Like some lame 3rd world dictator opening gunfire on a crowd of protestors? What a bunch of dumb fucks. There are still going to be tons of kneelers. Then once they get fined, maybe they can form a class and sue the NFL together. And it doesn't matter if they lose bc the NFL will still have a PR mess on their hands.

They won't just get fined, they will get blackballed. Players aren't going to risk a spot in the league to kneel.

Yes there will be, because some of these guys just DGAF. And already have millions of dollars.

And god forbid there be a team where a crew of of them get together decide to kneel together at the same time and put out a well-thought out PR statement afterward about how freedom of speech/assembly is a constitutional right and the NFL can go sit on a traffic cone

this is going to make this so much worse for the NFL

they are just ripe for an AssBlasting

Nobody wants to be Eric Reid and the really rich established guys are too smart to risk it. Same reason LeBron decided not to do it in the NBA.

I don't think anybody will care if some fringe special teams player kneels.

Instead of a league-wide rule, it will be up to each team to decide whether there would be discipline for a player protesting during the National Anthem.
Should a player protest on the sideline, the NFL can fine a team, but not the player.
Previously, there had been no rule that prevented players from protesting.

:shake:

The teams set the policy, but the league can fine the teams? wtf?

This last year's news cycle. It's not going to be an issue. Even if it continues to happen people will shrug and move on.

From what I understand, this is them getting around the collective bargaining agreement. Players cannot appeal a fine if it's not coming directly from the league.

I have to assume this is all Roger Goodell's idea. He has never been right about anything in his entire life.

I'm surprised Dolphins' logo wasn't ranked near the bottom. What is RM's beehive mind's collective feeling on the accuracy of this poll?

Hate the Panthers and Bucs logos. Overly "modern" and generic.

I've always loved the Seahawks logo and it's hard to go wrong with the classics like Packers, Steelers and Bears.

I'm a Cards fan, but I think the name/logo should be changed to represent the city/state.
