Best reason I've read for why professional QB Colin Kaepernick is currently an unemployed NFL player after protesting before games last season by not standing for The National Anthem & 'taking a knee' during the pre-game ceremonies etc. [via Deadspin Comments Section ]
Welp, today is 1st wkend of college football. Haven't told anyone but am boycotting *all* NFL games this season. I know, you may think it silly or 'non-effectual stance' but it's something I gotta do for various reasons I won't bother listing. Haven't watched single pre-season play [game etc] tho may have caught glimpses while channel surfing & local news showing highlights but doesn't count blah blah blah. Anyways, today did watch NC take 3 point lead after intercepting Cal & score td coupla plays later so will watch some NCAA action this season though am purdy sure will continue NFL Boycott ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Ok. Over/Out
Very surprisingly, boycotting the NFL was much more difficult than I imagined. Though I didn't watch a single-play of today's action, stopped briefly on both Eagles/Skins & Cowboys game while channel-surfing & boy, did I really wanna watch em... but hey, I'm a guy with 'real moral standards' [umm so far] ;-P therefore boycott still in effect. Ok. Over/Out.
Unrelated: Why is unemployment so high in USA when stock prices & economy generally growing past 8 years? One reason, perhaps, cause if unemployment high, American Youth, irregardless of race but generally of 'middle or lower-classes', will enter Military Service for pay or college opportunities... ie United States has a 'Voluntary Military' not Draftees tho Military Service also an option for those 'Convicted of Crimes' etc. What is correlation between 'tough Drug Laws' & High Prison Population of Minorities & Poor Whites & those 'Serving' in Military vs 'Serving Time in Prison'?
