    It's probably time to just accept that a few bad apples spoiled it for everyone else and ditch the anthem. It's an unwinnable situation for the NFL because their choices are to either make the players happy and piss off their fans or make the fans happy and get tied up in lawsuits.

    Players come and go, fans are lifers unless the league is so stupid that it caves to its temporary players.

    Might be time to keep the players in the back like they used too and have the anthem just for the fans. If any player wants to join the fans of course that'll be fine as well.

    If those are my options...I'd rather piss off the players. Pissed off fans will eventually come back as MLB has proven, but it could be and probably will be painful.

    On the players...reopen the policy, negotiate a resolution with the players and move on...what the NFL can't have imo is another season with players kneeling and no action taken by the team or the league.

    LMAO You think they care about public opinion here?

    I think the NFLPA needs to make a stand on this, the league was wrong for this, period.

    Haha...at the end of the day...fans foot the bill.

    I don't disagree that the league was wrong for force feeding this, but still it's a penny wise, dollar foolish move by the NFLPA imo.

    problem fixed:suds:

    Breaking News: The NFL announced today that because of lost revenue due to kneeling, an NFL Team had to be cut. Tampa Bay and the Green Bay Packers will be combining forming the Tampacks. They will be good for only one period and will have no second string...
