    So it is optional. Religion and politics are known to be hotly contested subjects; it makes no sense to me to include either one in a work place since it has nothing to do with the skills and the talents of the people that work there nor the mission of the employer. I can understand countries anthems in international sporting events like the Olympics when different countries compete. The inclusion in a local sporting event makes no sense to me. And so I would agree with the NFL employers that something like this should be optional. It will be interesting to see where this goes. imho the best outcome would be to completely separate sports from politics and save the anthem for political rallies and such.

    Wouldn't that depend on what their contract and rule book says? If their contract with the NFL only involves playing football and says nothing about participating in this patriotic bullshit, then that would mean their participation in the latter would be optional... as it should be.

    Unintended Consequences yet again. Govt. plastic bag ban contributes to hepatitis outbreak. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/watchdog/sd-me-hepatitis-how-20170923-story.html “The reason the outbreak has spread so rapidly is because homeless are living in more concentrated areas,” said Dr. Jeffrey Norris, the St. Vincent De Paul medical director who has been managing the charity’s response to the public health threat. “They often have to defecate in their tent, or next to their tent, and that exposes their neighbors on the street. Hygiene becomes incredibly difficulty.” San Diego banned plastic grocery bags last year, taking away a manageable alternative to defecating outside a bathroom. County health workers are now handing out thousands of “hygiene kits” that include plastic bags.

    Police state games for police state nation. Seek entertainment elsewhere. FTR: this is why I stopped watching the last pro sports product that I even loosely followed: NASCAR racing. "Restrictor plates" did it for me. This is RACING, the object is to go as fast as you can.

    +1 rep. Totally agree. My question is is standing for the National Anthem actually a condition of their employment? Is it written in their contracts? Thousands of posts all over the internet have angry people saying they can 'protest on their own time' but not on their employer's time. But where in their contracts is it explicitly written that they have to do anything more than play football?

    Cops Now Hiding Behind Kids on School Buses to Bust People Texting While Driving http://thefreethoughtproject.com/sly-cops-creep-near-kids-catch-texting-driving-offenders/ By Jack Burns - September 24, 2017 Indiana police officers have devised a somewhat devious plan to separate motorists from their money, all in the name of “keeping the public safe.” They are now hopping on school buses and using the elevated riding platform to look down into the cars of other motorists to see if they are texting while driving. According to reports, after the officers on the buses encounter a violator, they radio their colleague in patrol cars and tell them to pull the vehicle over and to issue either a warning or a citation. The move to put police officers on school buses is not without criticism, and while what is taking place in Indiana may seem like an isolated police tactic, the measure is happening all throughout the country. According to Wave3 News:

The new thing may be objectively superior and hard to fault by the numbers. But something’s been lost, just the same. And the thing will never be the same again.

    NASCAR owners side with Trump, take firm stance against anthem protests https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nascar/2017/09/24/nascar-owners-trump-protests-response-petty-ganassi-childress/698122001/ LOUDON, N.H. — NASCAR again proved to be an insular oddity in American sports culture on Sunday as Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series pre-race festivities at New Hampshire Motor Speedway were completely devoid of the type of national anthem protests that have permeated other professional sports. Demonstrations have increased in response to President Trump asserting that NFL owners should “get that son of a b---- off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired!" if one of their players protested. On the day Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan linked arms with players in a silent protest before an NFL game in London, if any NASCAR competitors shared the political opinion of athletes expressing themselves elsewhere, they fell completely in line anyway. In a state whose motto is “Live Free or Die,” crewman, including numerous African-Americans, stood in rows as usual for the national anthem, adhering to the prevailing opinion of the sport’s team owners.
