Yahoo Sports reporter Charles Robinson, who is in New York for Tuesday’s meetings, wrote on Twitter, “Sounds like nothing definitive accomplished in meeting between players, NFL, NFLPA. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross sounded measured at best.”

I was more upset that Colin didn't show his behind at the meeting when invited. AGAIN, he defeats his own cause.

that's all...   :brickwall:

???.......forgive me, YOGI, but what purpose might have been served had Colin showed up? He likely didn't show upon the advice of counsel. You DO know that Colin, through counsel, has filed a grievance with the NFL, don't you?

The meeting really didn't accomplish much anyway. And at the end of the day, my suspicion is that these negro ballers will extract the equivalent of "crumbs" from these owners. They will throw a few bucks at some programs which ostensibly help troubled/disadvantaged/under-served negro youths. In exchange for which, the negro ballers will go through this grotesque, PHONEY motion of fraudulent "patriotism," standing at attention while the racist NA is played, hand over heart, and the Stars and Stripes- under whose banner so much horror has been visited on the negro - will be waved.

Naaah, boss, we already KNOW how this story will end. It will end as it ALWAYS does, total and complete compliance/acquiescence with the white billionaire owners' demands.

But, hey, those who must just continue to enjoy the "entertainment" provided by these bruthas running and catching a football.  :shrug:

With him filing that grievance, it probably could've been used against Kaep.

What was that going to solve? 🤔 You have to remember, who raised him growing up. When you act rachet and foul-mouthed. It want get you anywhere in life.

 Again, if you decided to protest on your job; what would happen?  I'm pretty sure, you would get reprimanded or worse.

Correction: It was reported that Kaep wasn't invited.  :shrug:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
