I don't think theyre actually saying anything when they kneel. They are making a statement and then lacing up to play. I stand when I'm in a stadium during the anthem.

Certain players kneel in protest then Donald Trump blasts off at the mouth/fingers.

I just need a couple guys to play defense. Defense wins championships!

Well I disagree. When you kneel for the national anthem - you are kneeling for the national anthem. To me it's obvious. Without fans in the seats and no fans watching - your statement becomes irrelevant.

Yes- but the "shut up and play football" doesn't really apply because they aren't really saying anything. Their choice to protest police brutality, and now Donald Trump is his little spats with how folks exercise their 1st amendment,  isn't violent in anyway. You decision is to not tune it or pay the exorbitant amount to go to a live game is your free market counter protest.

But the NFL is a billion dollar business and the multi-million contracts aren't going to be phased in anyway.

And my fantasy team is going to continue to half-ass in my big money league until one of my friends wants to open up trade talks. And/or until the league starts playing defense!!!!!!

I tried watching some of the Skins- Cowboys game but I couldn't get interested. And that was a game I would never  miss. I don't think I'm protesting anymore - I think I've just walked away.

Redskins are too banged up to compete right now. They will easily lose their next two games until guys start getting healthy again. The upside is, they'll face the Cowboys again, highly likely without facing Zeke - who killed us as usual. Also, we will be heading into a softer part of the schedule.

They're my favorite national chain pizza.

Might help his sales (and my personal consumer-ship haha!) if he got his chains doing the "hot and ready" type deals that Little Caesar's and Domino's have now. While LC's doesn't have really good pizza the ability to drive through and grab a pizza with the quickness of being a burger has made their worth boom. So much that they have the new Detroit Red Wings NHL stadium named the "Little Caesar's Arena".

I like pizza and I can enjoy something from every chain. If I dine in - I prefer Pizza Hut. I would have say Elizabeth's has the best subs - at least with the meatball sub and the cheese steaks. Those are the only subs I get.

Don't mean to derail the thread, but pizza is one of my favorite subjects, lol! Especially right now, since I'm on a strict health plan. My friends and I used to hang out at Pizza Hut every weekend, Friday and Saturday night. For the early part of my 20's, I had a lot of Pizza Hut pizza! I can say, not all Pizza Huts are equal! There was one down here in G'boro we ate out a couple years ago that was so high in sodium that I felt myself blown up like a balloon after eating there. The one closer to my house in Stokesdale is much better though.

If you guys ever get down to G'boro, you have to check out Home Slice pizza, which is close to the Friendly Shopping Center. Sooooooo good! Kind of reminds you of Elizabeth's Pizza, but in my opinion, much better pizza! They also have a food truck that will be present at many outdoor events down here. Other places to consider - Mario's Pizza! Sooo good! Real New York Style pizza! In terms of a national chain, Pizza Hut is my first, followed by Papa Jones, and then Dominos. Little Caesars ONLY if I'm in a hurry and need something super quick to feed the family.

By far, the best place in Martinsville, in my opinion - Najar's Pizza, followed by Elizabeth's for other dishes (Lasagna , Spaghetti, Calzones, etc...) Papa's Pizza in Bassett is pretty good too.
