Patriots fans burn team jerseys after players take a knee during National Anthem

This is more than simply expressing an opinion...what they're doing is a deliberate action, if they worked for the company I do and performed deliberate actions against the company they will be fired, but we have strict guidelines and rules, obviously the NFL does not...

I was referring to the Google/Damore situation when I referenced being fired for stating an opinion.

The Google/Damore situation is much worse. The Damore post was an anonymous opinion piece and they had to do an internal search to track him down. He wrote it after being forced to attend a diversity seminar.

The Google situation looks pretty bad for Google and they are going to have to cough up bucks.

Kaepernick quit, and demanded to be rehired by a competitor. That is a whole different situation. There are a number of judgments involved (including the fact it would have a negative effect on the fan base).

Like RG III, once teams had a couple of years of tape on Kaepernick he was a lot less effective and he apparently hasn't been working on his craft being much more interested in social issues. He is said to not be able to read defenses well.

Blaine Gabbert a non-playing backup for Arizona this year was 1-4 for the the start of the 2016 and got benched.
Kaepernick was 1-10 for the remaining games he started. In the Bears game Kaepernick was 1:5 for 4 yards and got sacked 5/25 (he lost 21 yards) before he was pulled (Gabbert was only sacked once). Both victories were against LA and Gabbert won more convincingly (28-0). The meltdown of Kaepernick in the Bears game is difficult to understand.

Now there was nothing particularly heinous in Damore's memo and if anyone wants to claim men and women are the same, or attack the memo, open a thread on the subject and we will have at it. Google's diversity seminars push leftist pseudo-science. If there was a law prohibiting lying to your employees their seminars would be actionable.

Just to note 55 year old Bobby Riggs beat Margret Court (6-2, 6-1) and lost a close tennis match to a 29 year old Billy Jean King. Bobby Riggs would have been beer canned by a top male competitor.

The fact that Facebook and Google try to influence elections by censoring the right end (actually everything but the left end) of the political spectrum is reason enough to bring anti-trust actions against these de-facto monopolies.

NFL ratings continue to slide, ignorance will ruin a sport...

NFL's first four playoff games ALL see double-digit ratings drop compared to last season's wildcard round


The NFL's ratings continued to decline this week as the figures from last weekend's wildcard round of the playoffs fell 13 percent compared to last season.

Fox's late game on Sunday between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints was hit particularly hard, down a whopping 18 percent from the same time slot a year ago.

Jacksonville's defeat of Buffalo was down 13 percent for CBS, while Tennessee-Kansas City and Atlanta-Los Angeles were down 10 and 14 percent, respectively, from the same time slots at the end of the 2016 NFL season.

His guru fake doctor and making the team trade his backup replacement isn't fake news...

Yes it is fake news. Patriots had no intentions to resign Jimmy G because he wanted a franchise tag. Obviously the pats weren't going to franchise him when they have Brady. It's FAKE NEWS.

It's just ESPN trying to create a story about nothing about the patriots. Per fucking usual. Now the Patriots are going to have some anger about this and play some fuck you football thrughout the playoffs.

The Pats needed a QB with a shorter name.

Gee-whatever does seem to be cranking 300+ yard games out. That is 20-30% more yardage than his predecessor.

Tom Brady is old and should be pushed out, that guy was his replacement and Tom Brady got him off the team...I didn't read that from ESPN...

Funny you didn't mention that guru of his, the funny fellow who claims to be a doctor but really isn't and got booted from the sidelines...

Tom Brady is old and and should be pushed out? You high? He's still winning divisinal titles and super bowls. Hes still the best QB in the league. Why in the Sam blue fucking hell would you push him out?

Tom Brady didn't push him out of the team. It's a business decision. Jimmy G wanted a franchise tag. The GOAT still has at least 3 years. Why the hell would you get rid of the GOAT? He isn't slowing down any.

Because who the hell cares. Only patriot haters and people looking for a non existent story.
