If Monday was filled with images of players and vets taking the knee, Tuesday brought numerous examples of the backlash to what has gone from an expression of protest to a divisive issue. Fans burned jerseys; clubs disinvited athletes and some government agencies also made headlines for their reaction.

While I completely support their right to kneel if they choose to (which on its own is probably the most respectful alternative to standing), I can't help but wonder why everybody is letting themselves get caught up in such an intentional distraction from bigger issues.

Because something so trivial is a distraxtion from the impending nuclear war, and serves to distract from Trump's people being total f**king hypocrites.

What about the emails, Donald?

Because people are stupid.

I'm sure the NFL is really upset about those burning jerseys those people spent $100 a pop on

Is it just me or is the alt-right / trump supporters full of precious little snowflakes who can't handle their sensibilities being challenged?

The snowflakes are offended.

I don't have an issue with these people protesting or boycotting or whatever it is they are doing

I think they have a fundamental misunderstanding of the issues, but by all means do what makes you happy

What is the endgame? What exactly are they protesting? Is there a point where they will say, ok, now I'm happy with my country, I will stand for the anthem?

The endgame is typically the 4th quarter. But sometimes they go into overtime.

But the Monday night football ratings went up 68%.

If it were me and I were taking a knee to bring notice to an issue, I would continue until a more appropriate forum was provided that allowed the issues to be substantively addressed.

But people would really hate me because if that forum never opened or the situation didn’t approve I would go from respectful kneelingand just ratchet poo up from there.

You don’t like me kneeling? We’ll your really not going to like me when I take the field wearing the flag as a diaper and playing the anthem on kazoo.

I heard that Colin Kaepernick decided to take the knee instead of sitting, because he thought it would be more respectful to kneel, instead of sitting. And I agree with him. He wanted his protest to be respectful. I just really don't understand the hate. They are not sitting there with a 'F*ck you' expression on their faces, they are kneeling, in a reverant manner. Even Nationalists can accept that, right?

No?

They have a right to do their kneeling.

The rest of us have the right to express our criticism, if we don't agree with the way they're protesting.

Which is fair, this is America.

But the HATE. The sheer HATE. Its unnecessary.

It's been interesting seeing how the team owners have joined in/not joined in and such. Even if it seems small their decisions on how to act all probably came after long conversations with the team boards, NFL, so forth. Maybe gives a bit more of an indication on how the NFL feels in general.

But with all the criticism, I can't help but ask HOW they're supposed to be protesting, if not this way. What would be the superior method?

I believe that those criticizing them think that they should protest, if at all, privately, on their own time, in their own homes, where no one else will notice.

It's the mother of all non issues.

You Americans must be so god damn bored if this is what is considered a big deal.
