I guess I didn't make it clear enough that I don't give a damn about football.  You'll have to take it up with the NFL.


And Kapernick is not complaining about football either.  He's ****ed that blacks like him keep getting gunned down for having broken tail lights.


I DO see his point.





Can you provide statistics to prove your point.


 How does he feel about blacks killing blacks at alarming numbers? How about violence committed by NFL players? What about the poverty, poor schools , single parent families, drugs in these communities? Does that contribute to any of the problems there or is it just the minisclue amount of questionable shooting by law enforement, some by minority Officers. Is that his only issue.Seems to be. For that reason he is not worthy or all the attention he's getting.


I agree with Tony LaRussa.






SI Wire



Wednesday September 14th, 2016




Former MLB manager Tony La Russa weighed in on Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest in an interview with SI Now's Maggie Gray on Wednesday, calling it disrespectful and questioning whether Kaepernick is protesting just to draw attention to himself.


Gray asked La Russa how he would handle a player taking a knee during the anthem, as Kaepernick has done before games this year, if he were still a manager of an MLB team. Orioles outfielder Adam Jones recently expressed his disappointment in MLB's failure to join in the protest that is sweeping the NFL, calling baseball "a white man's sport."


"I know that there's a constitutional right to express yourself, but I think you have a right as an organization to have a certain philosophy about respecting, whether it's our Constitution, whether it's our country, whether its our soldiers...our flag," La Russa said. "I would not, to the best of my ability, I would not sanction somebody taking a knee.


"I think that's disrespectful, and I really question the sincerity of somebody like Kaepernick. I remember when he was on top. I never heard him talk about anything but himself. Now all of a sudden he's struggling for attention and he makes this big pitch. I don't buy it. And even if he was sincere, there are other ways to show your concern. Disrespecting our flag is not the way to do it."

Kaepernick lost his starting job to Blaine Gabbert last season after starting every game of the previous two seasons for the 49ers. Gabbert is listed as the 49ers starter this season as well, leading San Francisco to a 28–0 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Monday.


Kaepernick has said he is using the protest to take a stand against racial inequalities and oppression in the United States. He has pledged to donate the proceeds of his jersey sales this season to communities, in addition to donating the first $1 million he earns this year to organizations that help local communities.

I would love to see Kaepernick, sit in the back of a patrol car on the Midnight to 8am shift in the worst section of Chicago or Detroit, and get a real life look at what the police deal with.

Too bad he wasn't there when Terry Crutcher was shot with his hands up by a trigger-happy cop.  She's been indicted for manslaughter but that must be small solace to his family.  That would have been an ample example of what he is protesting!

I can't wait, Tony!


I'm apprehensive about the D. I'm hoping Girardi's knee has healed and is back to 100% but I'm not too confident in Staal. I'm pretty sure they're both playing tonight so we'll get to see them on the ice.

Good pace for the first pre-season game.  I found myself saying "who the hell is that guy?" quite a bit but the Fishies weren't exactly throwing out their starting line-up either.  I thought Kreider was a force and I imagine I will have to learn how to spell Zbanejad....   Brassard was easier.
