    Do the cops lives not matter?

    Threads like this irritate me. It strikes me like the 13 year old whining because Mom and Dad aren't being fair. You did it for Bobby, why not for me?

    Well maybe the NFL should issue an apology for being stupid the 1st time.

    They bowed to pressure from BLM and don't want to make BLM mad that they allowed Dallas to honor the dead cops from a BLM protest.

    Maybe, I don't give them that much credit. Supporting the Police isn't that popular with a lot of this country...no one will be upset with a team supporting Vegas.

    Never mind not worth it, I had a long response typed but it's not worth it.

    Yeah you haven't watched more than a second of MSNBC in your life. Neither have I, but just saying.

    Backdate an apology from two years ago? Yeah the NFL screwed up. This hardly registers on the Richter scale of NFL mistakes.

    Oh believe me I have watched it, I watch to see how insane they are and out of touch with reality. I can only stomach about 10min though.
    But yeah I do watch and then wish I hadn't wasted 10min of my life doing it.

    Goodell does suck, but, its much deeper than that. Curt Schilling gets fired for expressing a conservative political view, but Jemele Hill faces no action after calling POTUS a white supremacist. The NFL tolerates and implicitly supports players disrespecting the anthem, but, disallows decals supporting fallen police officers.

    These are clearly business decisions. Given a choice, the NFL/ESPN would sacrifice its conservative audience to protect its liberal audience.

    The armed forces themselves do plenty of business with the NFL for recruiting purposes as well as supplying honor/color guards for games. How can they support such disrespect for the flag that covers our fallen?

    Or .... conservatives can find a way to go into attack dog mode any time something happens that doesn't match their view of the world. And it doesn't have to be a big issue. In fact, small issues are great because it keeps the woe is me, the world is against us, they are picking on us again totally sharp. Every day, find one. No matter how trivial find one and make it the facebook/social media whine of the day. Never has a group in power been so picked on.

    And you can replace the word conservative with LIBERAL and just repeat.
