Omg, lol, just seen this now, cant believe I missed this.
You're posting a picture of Clevelands stadium to prove a point about kneeling
Yeah, its the kneeling that makes Cleveland struggle to get fans to come to games. Not the fact they're 0-7. Not the fact they're the worst team in the league for a very very long time now. Not the fact they have won 4 games in 3 years. Not the fact they have already used 3 QB's this year and 25 in the last 10. Not the fact theyve had 1 winning season in the last 14 years. Not the fact they haven't won a playoff in 19 years. Not the fact theyre the biggest laughing stock in world sport right now. its the kneeling
And then adding Chicago and Indi to the mix, 2 of the top 5 worst teams in the league who have always struggled to fill stadiums. Miami haven't been able to fill their stadium for a good 6/7 years now.
Next up you're going to show me a picture of the Chargers in LA this year and compare it to them in San Diego and claim its the kneeling
Why haven't you found me photos of New Englands ground? or Kansas? Or Pittsburgh? Or Philly? Or Oakland?
Or better yet, why not show me San Fran? Theyre as bad as Cleveland, and started the kneeling movement, and still have 3 players involved, yet they sell out every week
Or what about Seattle? 75% of the players that kneel come from the Seahawks, all the reform programs being created are from there players. Hocome they have a full crowd every week?
honestly Relly you tell me to go do some proper research? You may know a lot of about American politics but you have absolutely no idea about the NFL
"Another Trump victory"
Want to know the absolute best thing about this whole thing? That the movement was dying. No one spoke about it anymore, it was over. But Trump decided to attack a coloured man at an Alabama rally despite absolutely no correlation or relation between them. And this kickstarted the whole issue all over again. All he was doing was creating another distraction for him to continue to tweet about and avoid the real issues in America.
Do you want to know what the kneeling has actually achieved?
Education. Discussion. Reform. Community programs. Connection the police department to the community programs.
Charity work. Kaepernick has given 1 million dollars to charity while called a son of bitch for doing it.
Chris Long (hes white) has donated his entire 2017 salary to creating educational equality education programs
This is what we should be applauding.
Doug Baldwin, an educated Stanford graduate, has together with the league, penned an emotional appeal to congress to lesson minimum sentences to nonviolent crimes to help avoid increasing unemployment.
Creating community programs to help the police and community interact and promote equality together.
This has absolutely nothing to do with the military. It has nothing to do with the flag. Its a real real pity people cant see past that, see what these man are trying to achieve. Credit to the league and the owners (majority of which are Trump fans, who donated a lot of money to his campaign and inauguration "party") decide to listen to what these knowledgable and educated men have to say on the topic and ignore the outside white noise and criticism coming from twitter.
I honestly dont understand how you look at a guy like Doug Baldwin, and see a man trying to use his status in the community and see him taking the initiative to implement programs to help equality, and assist those who need employment and help, and instead pray to god that this guy himself loses his job. I honestly dont get it.
You tell me which one of those is un-American.
Im done with this subject
