    A recent survey showed that 62% of fans plan to watch less football in response to the anthem controversy.
    That translates to billions of dollars lost in ticket sales, advertisements, merchandise etc
    Most NFL players are black while most fans are white. What happens to the million dollar contracts? Whites feel that boycotting these NFL players will screw them financially. In other words, blacks can’t protest discrimination without suffering painful financial setbacks.
    Damn! I’m sure akina Kaepernick never saw this coming. This controversy has spilled over into everything. I kinda wish those black players didn’t bring politics into the NFL or NBA. It used to be fun watching games, not anymore. :(

    Hii ni propaganda ya league & owners. If u like the game U'll still watch it. NFL was slow to react to the protests from kapernick n the rest. And now they have a monster in their hands which they don't know how to control. Trump is not helping the situation by stirring the pot either.

    Other leagues such as NBA are attempting to get ahead of the situation by saying they expect their players to stand up. Soon utasikia it's part of the code of conduct.

    Trump is not helping the situation. Because his poll numbers are tanking, he’s trying to create a siege mentality in whites that this NFL controversy is about whites vs blacks and how minorities want to take over America. He has also emboldened racists to come out of the woodwork.
    Le Bron of all people is under vicious attack because he called Trump a “bum.” Shida iko wapi?

    Don't care about that sport and usa internal civil war. The more they are infighting the more peaceful is the rest of the world.

    Hehe I also wouldn’t care but I live in redneck Trump country. These racist politics affect me and thousands of other Kenyans. Imagine I’ve never walked around my neighborhood because I’m a big coward. It’s so beautiful to look at from my window but I’ve never walked in it. I go house-> basement parking-> work, that’s it. You just never know what a crazy psycho would do seeing a black hanging out in their neighborhood. The average family here has 11 guns per household. My car has dark, tinted windows. Anyway, so far most people have been kind.

    I tried and I couldn't, at least cricket nili understand on one of my sojourns in Púne. NFL is big business and if they could suppress the fact that the game causes CTE, sioni hao players waki succeed.

    Always remember you can't serve two masters at a time. You chose to play sport and earn or Be an activist and be a darling to lobbyists. you can't be both. These players are being disrespectful and should be sacked.

    Kwani how long does the national anthem last? If you’ve been to a game you know that’s the time to get comfy, get your hotdogs and snacks, chit chat etc. Since when did Americans care so much about the flag or anthems? You remember Tim Tebow used to take a knee, to show his commitment to the Christian faith. Wasn’t that offensive to the atheist fans and why wasn’t he fired??
