    I would be doing this regardless if the Giant's were 5-0 instead of 0-5, I promise

    I will just enjoy College Football on Saturdays
    I believe you. And you're not alone man, a LOT of people I know aren't watching games either. I just watch the highlights on NFL Network on Monday if I even remember to. Stomach turning is right, straight up revolting disrespect is what it is. Sunday isn't the time for politics or protests, it's a time for us ALL to unite and come together as a people and enjoy ourselves win or lose! These players have access to media and other platforms to protest on their OWN time AFTER their 16 weeks of work has ended, it isn't too much to ask them not to do it on NFL Sunday. They are paid millions of dollars to play a damn game for at the very least 16 weeks of the damn year, not to shove their politics in my face on one of my few days off. Hopefully the owners are getting the message and will fix this before they completely kill my interest. And the other thing that's killing me is losing my Giants fan buddy, even if the players weren't acting up I would still find it hard to take any joy in the Giants miserable season so far.

    I just wish I could get into college ball but I just can't. The crazy divisions with the crazy amounts of teams, the lack of real playoffs... just can't keep it all straight.

    • I wish the networks would keep the cameras off the players during the anthem. A lot of this crap would blow over

        I agree. The media is allowing this to spiral out of control by showing it. Prior to 2009 teams were still in their locker rooms during the Anthem which was played for the fans attending.. and you never saw it on TV. They'd cut away to a commercial during it or you'd hear it in background as they (Announcers) made their final remarks prior to kickoff

        The players claim that they are not Dishonoring the flag or the military but rather just taking advantage of their right to protest.. I am sorry but I have many friends and family that served and to me it's disrespect. Do your protesting on another platform with all the money and resources these millionaires players have. Not during a sports event that's meant for entertainment
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

        • I'm just say this once. It gets very uncomfortable for me being a black man reading what white people think we should do. If you have a problem with the protests, just don't watch. As a 20 year retired navy CPO, I feel that they are neither disrespecting me or that inanimate object that is a flag. I served for their rights to protest and this country was actually built on protest. Stop *****ing about their methods and think about their message and why they are protesting. Using fake patriotism IMO is just a lame tactic to deflect what the message is all about. I'm not asking any of you to agree with me. It is fine that you don't. However, please stop telling black folks how we should be getting our points across.
          We all that we got!

          • How bout they protest off the clock on their own time off which is usually 6 months outta the yr. The rest of us that have jobs would get fired for pulling that **** on company time and you know damn well you would get a BCD in the military if you started pulling that caca. They are paid employees of that team's owner, the owner has every right to tell em to stop that BS PC on his time. I just checked out the FBI 2016 statistics on crime& guess what race leads the nation in 3 very bad catagories:

            Murder/manslaughter
            Robberies
            Rape

            Despite being a much smaller % of the overall US population. I don't see Black NFL players taking a knee against that. Buncha hypocrites. Black on Black crime far surpasses any white on black, Hispanic on black crimes, I guess as long as the finger behind the trigger isn't white, it's all good in da hood. You go Chiraq!

            And before you try pulling the good ol race card on me, I'm a Puerto Rican man from Brooklyn NY who also served in the USMC and am a combat vet of Iraq/Afghanistan with multiple tours..

                • You guys got a good team and Wentz is the real deal.

                  My neighbor "Eagles Guy" was having pizzas delivered while he watched the game.

                  I keep an eye on him for safety.
