    but it was something that was pretty stupid to say and was wrong to say. Not that it matters. Nobody was really talking about why they were kneeling. Folks were offended and went off the rockers without ever thinking about that.


the hypocrisy of his constant talk of racism...punctuated by his blatant sexism should hurt his credibility. Just wondering if this was adding to the overall negative public opinion is all.

At this point people made up their minds about it. Most in the first few seconds of hearing it. I doubt it hurts the cause much one way or another. Women are generally not treated too great in sports media or by athletes. Not all, but there are many reports of it.

It is an important but separate issue to what is being discussed now. Just like I pointed out before. There are many people that are cool with free speech of some nasty groups that may have wanted to tare down the flag but are now super patriots about it. There are hypocrites abound. That does diminish their ability to express what they chose to express.

IMO, the only person to blame here is Trump. Other guys should be hit at times, but this is an issue the president should stay out of. The first amendment as a whole is to give people speech outside of the government saying no. Given Trump is part of the government, he could be looked at as violating the rights to freely express of some citizens.

The NFL could suspend players or whatever just fine, but that does not have a good look either.

I am not a fan of Cam or his comments here, but at the same time I think that this is a bit different issue here. It would also be a harder case for Trump to make about not treating women well.
