    Doesn't matter to the left.
    Accusation is enough.

    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
    They already know monsters exist.

    "The Donald" has told us repeatedly about his high IQ and that he has attended all the best schools

    In addition, Trump is surrounded by a stable of advisors and speech writers in the White House, who are more than capable of crafting a speech that accurately reflects the President's sentiments!

    There is no excuse for this President not expressing himself clearly and there is nothing presenting him from revisiting prior comments to ensure that there are no misunderstandings.

    The fact that Trump has never attempted to articulate as to which group(s) that participated in the Charlotteville marches were composed of "fine people" strongly suggests that he had chosen to be deliberately vague, thereby sidestepping a direct condemnation of the white supremacists, KKK and neo-Nazis!

I'm generally supportive of Kapernick and the overall protests but giving him this award feels a bit gimicky without knowing more context and the history of it. Maybe their main focus was the general BLM movement but since there isn't a primary leader they used Kapernick as the focus.

    It came across that the statement was made about those who were chanting "Jews will not replace us". That was the other side of "both sides".

    I hope not. Although I read that Seth MacFarlane knew about Spacey over 10 years ago, enough to joke about him in "Family Guy."

    The NFL would not allow any support of the slain Dallas Police officers nor the FDNY in another instance. They announced a new campaign to allow custom cleats for at least one week. One player has a marvelous idea, Kaepernick Cleats. Give me a break.

    Players debating NFL's proposed donation to social justice organizations

    In an unprecedented move for a major professional sports league, the NFL has proposed partnering with its players to effect social justice change, though not all players are in agreement on the proposal.

    On Monday, the league submitted to players the final draft of a proposal that, according to documents reviewed by ESPN, would contribute nearly $100 million to causes considered important to African-American communities. The NFL hopes this effort will effectively end the peaceful-yet-controversial movement that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started when he refused to stand for the national anthem last season.

    They will only see that their disrespect got results. They will want more and more, meaning more disrespect.

    I guess half empty stadiums only represent their half empty brains...They cant get it, can they.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
    Proverbs 3:5-8

    I disagree with your post but I do wonder if some other players will be angry or jealous or bitter that the league is responding to the protests by giving a ton of money for black social justice issues and want the league to be as generous to their own causes.

    The fact that fewer and fewer tickets are being sold for lower and lower prices and i see even more of happening when people see what their money will be paying for, will say it all.
