I tried to start this conversation a year or two ago in the sports section. Jasmin was the only participant and she only wanted to blabber something about title 9 when I suggested that the nlf, like college, should be open to any team willing to play by NFL rules. You know - free markets and all that, as opposed to a socialized country club for the super rich.

The government assisted aspects of the NFL, and professional sports in general, are atrocious.

But having a private organization that limits membership is in no way whatsoever contrary to free market principles.

Exactly.

Congress, after historic lobbying pressure, granted the NFL an exemption from the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Such waivers should only be granted when it's a national security matter. How is professional football a national security issue?

The Kremlin couldn't have done it more thoroughly.

Are you arguing that the Soviet Union would have eagerly granted a private business an exemption from anti-trust laws?

Anyone is free to start his own professional football league at any time. Vince McMahon is doing it. The NFL is a singular business that competes with other forms of entertainment, sports or otherwise.

There are plenty of other ways to spend your entertainment dollars. Even football.

It all depends if the Anti American kneelers are allowed to keep disrespecting the flag then I will continue not watching the NFL or any other sport that allows these overpaid hate America athletes to act like the fools they are.

Still will watch the Cowboys as the owner has made it clear there will be no kneeling.  I can support his stand.  They kneeled once last game and it was after the anthem, if I recall correctly.

Organizations like the NFL and the lib media get away with what they do because they are government-allowed monopolies or near-monopolies - that has to change.

The fist raising and kneeling has already begun.... I think I'm probably just going to stop watching.

I may take a peek at the freaks show when the teams that have hired male cheerleaders this year debut them, but idk if I'll actually watch any games or make my LNF picks yet.
