I don't know if anyone listened or is aware of what has been going on, but THAT conversation was deep. Both sides made some very good points.

Seriously, super discript thread you've made here, Carlos. Any chance you could fill us in on details or are you just going to keep being coy?

If you aren't aware of what's been going on, here's his post that started the huge s**t storm:

Maybe it's me not giving a shit about the whole ordeal of people taking a knee and having an understanding in why they're doing it, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to say something about it if I ran a shop that a lot of my clients are said athletes.

And that is why it is so controversial. I applaud him for having the balls to do it. You can't expect to make that sort of statement and not get any ramifications from it. Great free marketing. Ok, not really, but you get the point.

It's also controversial because of the military twist people keep putting on it (like the post referenced here) that isn't what it is about.

At the end of the day, a lot of people are getting entirely too worked up about a protest that has done exactly what it was meant to do, peacefully create conversation and bring light to the issue they were trying to highlight.

People can and should be able to choose who they give their respect to for any number of reasons.

However, I also feel that anyone that says athletes shouldn't be allowed to engage in peaceful protest however they choose to do so are FAR more un-American than those that are protesting.

Anyone who knows anything about our country knows that it was built on the foundation of the freedom to do exactly what they're choosing to do. As far as the military is concerned, the men and women of our military are there to protect these individuals right to protest whether or not they all agree with it.

I don't know if the radio station he was on made a recording of the conversation like some others do, but I'll do some digging later on. In the meantime, here's a video post he made last night on the topic:

Maybe I’d give more of a fuck of what these fans think of players protesting if they didn’t chant over the anthem with “home of the chiefs.” It’s almost like these retards don’t see how they’ve been “disrespecting” the anthem for years.

As for the post, he’s a fucking tool. Hilarious to hear it’s getting blowback.

Whatever you think, these are American citizens exercising their right to protest. Period. You don't have to agree with it, but they have every right to do so, as much as you do to speak out against them for doing it. That's it.

This whole thing is just stupid. The athletes have the right to protest how they want. Their target demographic will judge their protests with their wallets. If you don't like what that athlete (or any public figure) is doing, then don't spend your money/time on them. Then that athlete will be forced to evaluate their actions and the affects of those actions. The same can be said for what Chad's doing here. He's making a stand for something that is important to him regardless of the impact on his business. His clientele will judge him with their wallets. He has that right. Look, I thought that the initial protests were misguided, and poorly executed, but that is the players right. As an American you have the right to do whatever stupid thing you want, as long as it doesn't harm another person. I personally thought the anthem protest was disrespectful, and in poor taste. I stopped watching the NFL. I'm not giving them any more money or time. That's MY right.

People have the right to protest the flag. They also have to accept the consequences that come with it.

Supposedly Kaepernick started by sitting during the anthem, then met with a Green Beret who didn't like that he did it, they had a respectful conversation, then the Green Beret suggested he take a knee because it was more respectful to the flag to do so... which taking a knee became a thing over just sitting.

This whole statement is basically my only problem with their protests. They drug their employer into it, and I am sure that nobody asked first. The athletes are guaranteed money if they show up to play. They aren't gambling with their own revenue near as much as they are their employers. I get why they would want to use that as a stage, but I don't think that it is their stage to use.

At this point, I think both sides are ridiculous. I don't think that anyone is nearly as offended as they act. I also don't think that this protest is causing any conversation or action, that it was intended to start. Sit or stand, I don't give a shit. I want a beer and want to watch football.

I don't think it's actually impacting the employer, and it's their choice to punish the players for the protest.

Honestly, I think it's a great stage because it IS getting so much attention without any negative impacts. It does make a lot of people uncomfortable when they want to 'just drink a beer and watch football', and that's the point. it's ruffling feathers. It's accomplishing what it sought out to do.

It's never going to make racists think 'oh ya, you're right. maybe I shouldn't be racist'. That ship has long sailed. There isn't going to be some productive dialogue. The point is to keep this issue at attention so that, culturally, we don't become complacent like we have in recent years and let race relations slide backwards. With some luck, maybe we can actually progress forward.

I don't believe for a second that it hasn't made an impact financially. I don't know how big or small, but if a person buys one less t-shirt, or 10,000 people don't buy shirts, apparel, trinkets, etc., that normally would, it has an impact. If more tickets go unsold, there is less people there, fewer people paying to park, fewer concessions sold, etc. My point is, that they are creating a situation where there is unneeded risk, primarily shouldered by their employer, when there doesn't have to be. I think that is a shitty thing to do, no matter if you work at McDonalds or are a pro ball player.

It is a great stage, I just don't think that it is their stage to make their statement.

Hell, we are talking about a league that fined a guy for wearing a different color ribbon to support a different type of cancer, other than breast cancer. If it isn't his stage to do something as simple as that,to which there should be no controversy, then why is it these players stage to bring up an issue that can be seen as controversial?

I personally don't think it is productive, especially with what it has turned into, but to each their own. There are going to have to be active steps on both sides to heal the wounds that they want to heal.

Did you see the Gigaplex picture from Monday Night? That stadium was sold the hell out. I honestly don't think there is even a small hit happening to the bottom line of any of these franchises. I have heard so many fucking people talk about boycotting the NFL and every sunday their FB is lit up with them talking about football and shit about the games. It's all talk.

Something has to be done. A widely viewed, public protest done in a very civil way is about as good as it gets. Sorry if you have to roll your eyes before the game and it impacts you for 60 seconds one day a week. We're talking about it, aren't we? It is staying on your mind and in the news, isn't it? How is it not productive?

If these people can be offended by statues and flags I'm pretty sure the other side can safely be offended by these protests.


Deal with it

Wrong.

You are assuming why I'm offended.

I support racial equality. I don't support disrespecting our flag.
