MSNBC Report

according to an MSNBC article I read this morning the New Orleans Saints had a taste of their own medicine this past week.
After the game they chartered a flight home.
The players all boarded and the plane sat there for a long time, in fact all the other flights had already left the airport ahead of them...
The pilot and co-pilot, both veterans, stepped out of the cockpit where all the players could see them, took a knee, and walked off the plane.
The team had to stay overnight until pilots who would fly them home could be brought in. An interesting protest to protest.

If true, I know of two pilots Iíd like to buy a beer!

Would of been a better story if they increased the heat in the cabin while waiting. Ha

And on the other hand, a high school referee took exception to a number of ppl in the stands not standing for the anthem and a hs girl taking a knee.

He decided not to referee the game and when the officials pointed out he was under contract, he gave back what they paid him... 20.00.

End result.... school suspended him from being a referree for 18 months. Penalty for the girl.... nothing.

sounds like everyone got what they wanted.
I have no problem with people protesting....and in the situation you described, the protesters would not bother me...
The whole NFL situation I see as a cluster of hypocrites...both on the part of the players and the NFL itself...I do not go to a ball game, a concert or the theater to see protests...I pay for the entertainment value...what people do on their own time is fine with me...if any of the players wanted to protest on the town square, so be it...but at the game, one the side lines in uniform...is not the place for it..
in fact 40 some years ago I did the same thing... for a time there, I would not stand for the national anthem... I was too angry about the end of the vietnam war... it took me a while to realize it was my government I was angry at, not my country... to me, there is a difference.

Not only do I not believe that, but it's a false equivalency and it's generally in opposition to most veterans that I've spoken to in this issue. First off, the players protest did not affect their ability to do their job, while the pilots outright refused to do theirs altogether. Second, many veterans seem to be of the mindset that they fought for the freedom to protest, even if the protest is retarded. Which I believe the NFL protests are, and I'd fire every one of them.

I'm sick of hearing about this . It's very simple. If the NFL thinks the players are hurting their brand, they have the right to stop them. If they don't think the players are hurting their brand, then the players have every right to protest however the they want. Don't like it? Vote with your wallet. Case closed.

Funny how we all pick and choose the differnt we are sick of hearing about.

Others are tired of hearing about transgender , but here it isó-just a few threads below this one.

Kind of hypocritical ó ainít it....

Actually this is in off topic and that other thread is in the circus. I'm not making a statement that this issue should not have been posted on this website -- I clicked on this topic, after all. Rather, my statement is that I'm tired of hearing about this issue ad nauseum in the news.

And hey, believe it or not, I am both tired of hearing about this as well as tolerant that other people are tired of hearing about transgender issues. It's not hypocritical because they're both totally valid opinions. Crazy!

You really love to jerk yourself off when you think you've made a good post. It's kinda like laughing at your own jokes. If you feel like you have to, it's probably cause the joke wasn't funny.

I agree to a point with most of what you say...I am a veteran with 3 combat tours behind me... a long time behind me...I believe that when I took my oath I did not take an oath to support the government of the states united, i took an oath to support and defend the constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic...
I believe the constitution does not establish rights, but protects rights...
I believe the right to protest is a natural right, supported and defended by the constitution...I believe in the right of any person to protest things they do not approve of or agree with...I also believe that when one does so, one is not free of the consequences of their actions, only free of government interference or prohibition of it...if it off your neighbors and they treat you like , that is their right to do so too...and I believe in the right of anyone to talk about this as long as they want to, if I don't want to hear about it...in this case, I simply do not read the thread...conversation tend not to last too long if they have no participants.
as to whether this reported incident occurred or not, I do not know... and do not care enough to bother confirming the MSNBC sources... I found it humorous and so, passed it on.

You've captured how I feel exactly. We are in total agreement. Cheers

Trying to sow the seeds of doubt still, are we?

Man if someone sent you a picture of me in a dress just do me a favor and please don't to it anymore. That's just weird.

The Shakespeare quote he posted in the other thread is a reference to my Facebook profile. It's actually just really weird that he still feels the need to follow me around like a lost puppy dog. It's not even flattering anymore.
