    NFL to play Black national anthem before game...

    I am so done with a game I loved from childhood...

    NFL to play Black national anthem before 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at Week 1 games

    Same here. I grew up watching the NFL and now I don't care anymore.

    But I was more put off by the disloyalty of owners moving teams all over the place. Why invest any attachment to a team that will uproot and leave at the first chance an owner can make a couple extra $million somewhere else?

    What specifically is so upsetting about this to you?

    I gave it up when they wussified it with all the "no quarterback contact" "no targeting" "no hitting a defenseless receiver" ambiguous rule changes they made. So no skin off my nose.

    I've made no secret of the fact that I am morally conflicted about football after what happened to Junior Seau and Jevon Belcher. But this controversy is silly. The "black national anthem" is not a divisive black power song at all. My kindergartener learned it in school and came home singing it and I had no idea it was even tied to race.

    There is no Black Nation here, so there is no NATIONAL anthem. So that is a lie, there is only one national anthem in and for the United States...

    The song wasn't directly written to be a "national anthem"; some people just call it that. It's more of an inspirational song... sort of like how it's traditional for God Bless America to be sung in the seventh inning on Sundays of baseball games.

    It's the camel under the nose thing. If we give way to them changing tradition and culture based on lies, it won't stop.

    If singing this particular song is offensive to you, I'm sorry, you're a snowflake.

    Strawman. I didn't say the song itself was offensive. I said: "If we give way to them changing culture based on lies, it won't stop." That's the issue.
