gzt: It seems the NFL thing is heating up. The previously supportive owner of the cowboys who kneeled with players has changed his tune, or maybe he saw it as a one day promo, but it appears he will now suspend players, and the NFL may do the same. The pressure applied by Trump and Pence is having an effect. Remains to be seen what the players aka employees will do, or not do.
Apparently 70% of the players are black. So if they all stood together in solidarity, it would be interesting to see what would happen.
I suspect that the NFL would dig their heels in, suspend or fire all that participate, and offer a second rate product. All so they can mute the uncomfortable race inequality discussion that this protest is attempting to initiate.
