Yes they will lose money. How much remains to be seen. I know a few people that are not going to anymore games, buying merchandise, or supporting the league whatsoever until this is resolved. The NFL product was already on the decline, this is going to hurt them even more.
I hope so and I hope they SUCK. Take Harrison for the steelers. He said no player better be kneeling on his team yet he participates in this "stay in the locker room" they did? Then all these owners, who deep down you know are against it and the R word, do this stupid arm in arms thing? Yeah I bet only to please the fans that want to see it.
Look, this whole thing should never have become what it has. The original incident with Kap should never had gotten the attention it did but stupid media these days is the problem. THe flag and saluting it has no relation to the corrupt cops, the president or anything else they say is happening. Without what ti took for us to have the flag, be the U.S.A. and the freedoms we have there would be no football or freedom of speech. The rhetoric about standing to salute the flag, singing the national anthem and even the pledge is not about us being forced to it's a sign of respect to the country and living in with the freedoms we have in this country.
You wonder why as a nation we are becoming a laughing stock. It's because nobody cares about the country, has loyalty, respect or want to work for anything. Just want to have everything handed to them yet have no appreciation for anything. Hatred rusn deep and it's not just the president, the cops or anyone else the "disrespectful" types say has the hatred.
Washington DC can kiss my grits. I'll salute my state flag in accordance with the 10th Amendment. Enough of the trillions of wasted dollars and killings in foreign entanglements that Washington warned us about.
North Dakota is the very definition of a red state. It voted 58 percent to 39 percent for Romney over Obama, and its statehouse and senate have a total of 104 Republicans and only 47 Democrats. The Republican super-majority is so conservative it recently passed the nation's most severe anti-abortion resolution – a measure that declares a fertilized human egg has the same right to life as a fully formed person.
But North Dakota is also red in another sense: it fully supports its state-owned Bank of North Dakota (BND), a socialist relic that exists nowhere else in America. Why is financial socialism still alive in North Dakota? Why haven't the North Dakotan free-market crusaders slain it dead?
Because it works.
In 1919, the Non-Partisan League, a vibrant populist organization, won a majority in the legislature and voted the bank into existence. The goal was to free North Dakota farmers from impoverishing debt dependence on the big banks in the Twin Cities, Chicago and New York. More than 90 years later, this state-owned bank is thriving as it helps the state's community banks, businesses, consumers and students obtain loans at reasonable rates. It also delivers a handsome profit to its owners -- the 700,000 residents of North Dakota. In 2011, the BND provided more than $70 million to the state's coffers. Extrapolate that profit-per-person to a big state like California and you're looking at an extra $3.8 billion a year in state revenues that could be used to fund education and infrastructure.
NPL was absorbed by the Dem party in the 30's I believe.
Did anybody else catch Hannity last night? He had Bill O'Reilly on and they were talking about this. They went into the main objective of all of this. Chipping away at statues, flags etc and to ultimately change the Constitution. That is the end game.
