Roger that! From now on I will NOT move threads.

I will hand out free Barn VACATIONS for anyone that feels the need to be verbally abusive or to others or bullies anyone.

Look EVERYONE
We all have freedom of speech. We have the right to protest at an NFL game.
We also have the right to not watch NFL games where people are protesting.

And once again I have a move a thread to P&R because of peeps being negative to each other! And that pisses me off!
What negative opinion would that be ?
I fail to see why you just singled me out here. Unjustly so, I might add.

I haven't singled you out. Your not the only one that likes to talk down to others. I've made that clear in another thread.

Ok, but where am I talking down to others? I'm not swearing or taking open pot shots at people.
Take it PM if you prefer, keep it here if you like. but I just found it odd that you chose my comment to move the thread and make the comment that you did.
No skin off my teeth though.

edit: I thought that I deleted that . You a veddy sneaky squirrell !

I'd like to see the NFL's reaction to a few players waving the Confederate battle flag.

Watch how fast they stop them.

When you do you alienate co workers and customers. And you will get fired for that.

Unless you are NFL player.

I want to know why people that are upset want to wait till veterans day weekend to boycott. Why not boycott now? Why did they just boo and not walk out?

When you're a season ticket holder you have a lot of money invested in the home games. You have no recourse and can't get your money back, so you're going.
Like I said earlier, Money talks and BS walks.
This ridiculousness is happening very early in the season, and will be forgotten by the time it is time to renew season tix.
It's really easy for someone who has nothing invested in it to say that they're boycotting the NFL
That's why all of this heeman boycott talk is so entertaining. The people who are boycotting, and they prolly aren't, already don't care about the NFL.

I agree that the season ticket holders' money is already sunk, so nothing major will happening with ticketing, what we need to watch (pun intended) however, is the Nielson ratings for the games. You are right. Me choosing not to watch NFL here on my couch has absolutely no impact on the NFL, but if those Nielson families also sit on their couch and tune out the games, that will have a financial impact on the NFL.

It's done digitally through the satellite co's and cable co's.
There is no such thing as Neilson ratings anymore.

I'm as interested as you to see these numbers though.

I don't have cable tv.

I guess my vote doesn't count. Still not watching, though.

Correct. You spend nothing to watch TV.

It counts to us though...

Surely a sizeable portion of the country is like me, sans cord. How are ratings estimated for all sorts of broadcast programs assessed for people in this group?
