.......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.
