Bob Costas on the future of football: 'This game destroys people's brains'
Tom Schad, USA TODAY Sports

Nov. 8, 2017

“The cracks in the foundation are there,” Costas said. “The day-to-day issues, as serious as they may be, they may come and go. But you cannot change the nature of the game. I certainly would not let, if I had an athletically gifted 12- or 13-year-old son, I would not let him play football.”

I think stories like this have more to do with declining NFL attendance than players taking a knee for the national anthem.

Yes you're correct. Teams with consistently losing records have the tendency to lose support while winners possess season sell out. Can you imagine those sold out seats at the Cleveland games? wink

Please inform us as to how a flag helps out the poor and disenfranchised? The very premise, which you've highlighted, you have nothing to do with or for that matter, really care about the struggles of the poor White, Blacks or people of color. Tell us how the flag entitles people to decent healthcare? I'm here because I have a broken femur......besides saluting the flag, what do you do with your busy schedule? BTW, I sat in a wheelchair and rang a Salvation Army bell yesterday and what did your flag compel you to do beside show your blatant ignorance and racism? laugh

LOL. who told you that I was debating with you in the first place, I'm just responding. In order to "play" one must have an opponent, from a logical standpoint, your raging and venting isn't remotely what I deem a worthy opponent........and you playing with yourself is another deviated and nasty habit. laugh

You don't even know what you're talking about ...Fool!

How about you explain who the disenfranchised are, and who's suppressing their vote?

If it happened in February 15', you're telling us another one of your story.

You should have asked your Father what the flag means, he defended it, and he was an honorable man.

OK, let's start with aggressively gerrymandered Republican voting districts (recently ruled by multiple supreme courts to be inherently illegal/unconstitional), Republican voter ID laws (ditto), intense efforts to deny absentee ballots, slash polling locations in poor (read: minority) communities and dramatically cut voting hours.

Next ridiculous question...
