Team USA hockey coach says he'll bench any player who sits for national anthem.

That's what I am talking about.  :)

Tort is the man.  Loved him when he coached the Rangers

So he's getting a little smarter about this protest.

Its all a game on his part, hence growing out the afro.

The conservatives sound like liberals in this case. He can do what he wants but he shouldn't because they get offended or because it hurts the feelings of vets or makes the flag sad.  Sounds like a reversal of roles in this case.

It's not just veterans...... it's all Americans he is offending.

Dig through the tweets with that hashtag for the last 2 days. There are dozens of vets tweeting their support. 

And that's my point. You're correct that nobody is arguing about the right. My point is that whether it's an act that is insulting to the veterans isn't black and white. Many veterans are saying that this is what they fought for.  And intend to agree with that. The kishke reaction is that he's being insulting.  But if you think about it, what makes us free is not popular speech. Unpopular, offensive speech is exactly the freedom that they've defended.

There is also no lack of veterans who disagree and are offended. I respect them as well and think Kasperwhateverhisnameis should find some way to reach out to them and do a better job explaining what he's doing and why.



There are also vets that killed cops...Remember who killed the 5 cops in Dallas 2 months ago?? That's right an ex army vet

I don't think it's right for him to do on it military appreciation night unless he's protesting the military.
The other times I considered it fine.

I don't think its ever OK to disrespect the flag. From where I come from that's a major no-no.

Can't wait for tonight's game as he will get booed profusely in San Diego, when the 49ers visit the Chargers for their final preseason game. Could you imagine that tonight is “Salute to the Military” night at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium. Going to be EPIC.

So in the same vein those BLM burning the flags are OK with what they are doing because its bringing the issue to the news? this guy is a failure and wanted to change the topic.

Would love to see a guy bring a confederate flag into an event so he could bring his issue (whatever it maybe) to the forefront.

He has more to gain now actually. He can kvetch about being benched for political reasons rather than being washed up.

He lost his starting job and probably was going to get released, now he can blame his release on something other than his on field performance.

How about we keep this crap out of sporting events. We tune in for the game not this BS. Go on TV, radio, internet, rallys or a thousand other ways to get your message across.

Did anyone watch the Olympics? The pride these athletes from all walks of life showed for their country was amazing.

I agree, and if wasn't a has-been and delegated to holding a clipboard he wouldn't be making this stand. He is only doing it now because he has nothing to lose.

No I am not wrong. Yelling by itself at someone is not illegal. It better go farther than that.

Verbal abuse (such as threats of physical harm, intimidating language, or degrading language)

But desecrating the flag will stop police brutality?

Would being accused of raping women stop police brutality?

Kaepernick is worth approximately $126 million. I suggest that if he doesn’t like America, he take his BLM Muslim bride and head to the Middle East.   

It’s scary how BLM and Muslim/Anti Israel events go hand and hand…….  It’s their deep seated resentment for all things American that they can’t stand.

Just got this email.

We are making changes to the Chase Ultimate Rewards® Amazon Shop with Points1 program.
•   Beginning September 1, the Amazon.com redemption value for $1 is changing from 100 points to 125 points. This change does not impact the Amazon.com Rewards Visa card.
•   Your points will no longer be deducted when your purchase ships; they will be debited at the time your order is placed.
These changes do not impact your other Chase Ultimate Rewards redemption options including cash back, gift cards, travel and more.
Visit Ultimate Rewards today to learn more.


Thank you for choosing Chase.

Maybe I should put it in beginners  thread bec who redeems UR for Amazon?

I agree even at $1 for 100 points (a penny a point) is not a good use of chase points. Recent redemption netted 3 cents a point.
