#ColinKapernaek and his band of knee kneeling brothers should take the knee against domestic violence by fellow gridiron ballers. #KareemHunt #KansasCityChief #NFL
The NFL comes off as so sanctimonious and self-righteous not to mention social justice police but need to clean out its own house.
And this incident took place last February and it's nearly a year later. Well, #KeithEllison got away with smacking his girlfriend. Typical men on the left. Yet they are supposed to be big supporters of women rights. Whatever!

Not a fan of #CondoleezzaRice, an actual Bush war criminal.But her skill set would be better used as #NFL commish, where she could make some changes.

This is just an obvious attempt to skirt the Rooney rule. There are many female coaches who never authorized torture.Choose one.
So we rehabbed Bush2 with a mint at McCain's funeral and Uncle Joe awarding him a medal at the Constitution Center.

Now we're going to rehab #CondoleezzaRice by giving her a job she has zero qualifications for? I mean I love the #Eagles but I'm never going to be their coach.
I just feel compelled, as someone who wrote a bazillion words about the Bush administration over eight years, to remind people that it was Rice as NSA who ignored the outgoing Clinton memo warning about possible attacks. And 9mos later, 9/11. Then, two wars.

Just saying.

Right, rugby (and other contact sport) friends, gather round and let me try to share with you some slides & ideas I presented at the @NFLResearch Conference on Collision sport in London last week. This set was on nudging safer behavior, it’s a thread. But it’ll have pictures…1/
2/ First, a philosophical issue that *SHOULD* influence actions (subtly). Change is hard. It’s resisted. That’s as true in the #NFL as it is in #rugby, and in any other sport. These quotes are basically interchangeable - players, coaches, media etc - push back against change.
3/ However, we also can’t allow the tail to wag the dog - if risk is too high, change IS necessary. But how much? The key question, for me, is how you achieve “change without change?”, as this slide asks? Change X but not Y (the sport) (too much). That’s key to getting buy-in.

We all get older. It’s an unavoidable fact. Sports fans are no exception. We grow up and we grow old. Unfortunately, so do our heroes. The life of a sports fan, measured by their heroes, has a few major milestones that mark our cycle. #mlb #nba #nfl #nhl #wnba #usmnt #uswnt 1/17
#1 - Establishing a Hero
Think back: Once you were the starry-eyed child. You watched on the television or, hopefully, someone took you to a game. There you were amazed by what that one guy or girl did. How can he run so fast? Did you see that pass? 2/17
Someone did something that made you take notice. You were amazed, in awe. Maybe it was Sandy Koufax's control, Mike Schmidt's power, Walter Payton's finesse, or Sue Bird's control of the court. Something made you become a sports fan and you wouldn't want that to change. 3/17

Ahem...he sacrificed absolutely nothing. He isn't playing ball because no team wants him. Heck, no one is keeping the NFL from hiring him. He simply isn't good. If was, he would be on a with the kneelers. He isn't kneeling for black lives. #BoycottNike #NFL #ColinKaepernick
#Nike and #ColinKaepernick both setting a bad example for losers. Typical liberal, when they can't win they blame the system. They can never accept defeat gracefully.
Why hasn't he taken the knee for the black lives extinguished in Chicago, Baltimore, Detriot, LA or abortion clinics? #ColinKaepernick only wants to take the knee when it involves playing the race card and he can't win and can't accept defeat. #BoycottNike

20+ year businessman here: The NFL's actions over the past 2+ years has been astonishing, and this move will make it worse. This is mass career suicide & the league will cease to exist if someone with a spine does not take charge soon. thenationalsentinel.com/2018/07/20/cow…
Every business has 'Standards and Practices' guidance for employee behavior. NFL made this bed by allowing 1 person to bring a political statement onto the field and not stopping it immediately. At this point, no matter what they do- it will be wrong. Players vs. Fans= Bankrupt
NFL players, executives and owners HAVE to realize that they are engaged in a battle that they CANNOT win. A VERY large portion of their audience is being isolated by the protests & less fans means less $$$. #NFL

Matt Waldman's RSP NFL Lens #LaquonTreadwell Thread

Fit in the #Vikings offense and where there's opportunity for growth in 2018.

#skol #NFL
#LaquonTreadwell isn't a speedster, but he's quick enough and he will work with his quarterback. Here's where his tape is a little more refined that a big guy like #KennyGolladay.
Unlike a receiver like #KennyGolladay, #LaquonTreadwell's game is suited to moving the chains.

He could benefit from clear-outs by his teammates but isn't used that way.

They have him work flats where his length is an asset as a substitute to the ground game.

#TakeAKnee is
Against brutality directed toward minorities
Against divisiveness (for a show of unity)
Supports Amendment 1 of U.S. Constitution
Supports solidarity (power/credibility to make changes)
It's not done against flag or anthem
It's not done against our military/veterans
#TakeAKnee is
For liberty & justice for all
For basic human rights
For civility & civil rights
Against "ugliness" that exists in our society

Whoever doesn't understand this, just doesn't want to.

#IStandWithKaepernick
#IStandWithEugeneGu
#TakeAKnee

And, I wonder…

How many people partake in the flag/anthem ritual while watching at home/bar?
How many people partake in it while grabbing food and/or drinks at the stadiums?

(1) #TakeAKnee, #NFL. The NFL submits to the Social Justice Warriors among them, giving them $89M to stop being spoiled brats. #AnthemProtests

(2) This reminds me the 1960's on college campuses. The professors "laid down" in the face of radical protestor demands, rather than being responsible adults. We all saw (and see) how that went.
(3) Just over one generation later, the academy has become completely leftist, and the students run the asylum. Or perhaps as accurately, the academy has become the asylum.
