What 4 yrs. of College does for NFL players

In a recent polling of 585 NFL players, nearly all of them were unsure of exactly what they are protesting.

Here's a sampling of responses to the question: "What are you protesting by kneeling during the National Anthem?"

"Pretty sure it's against Nazis - especially the white ones."

"We're protesting America becoming capitalistic instead of equal."

"I'm protesting against Trump saying black lives don't matter."

"We're against global warming and the police."

"We're showing the world that we care about, ah, things such as.... such as... ah, freedom from suppression?"

"Me and my fellow players are protesting the Constitution of Independence, because of what it does to people of color."

"We are displaying our right to stand up by kneeling for our beliefs."

"We are protesting Trump, because he, you know, keeping the black man down."

"Myself is kneeling to show that just because I'm American don't mean I got to act like one."

All above comments are from National Football League players with 4 years of an American College “Education”.

Average player salary $1,900,000

Yea and these guys choose a profession where concussions are a risk. Safe to say they probably shouldn't risk any more brain damage

These young men should use their God given talent for its intended use. Period. Like LeBron James; I think it is okay to express an opinion but man you are way out of your league trying to argue on an intellectual level. Right up there with the congressman who declared we needed to be careful how many people we put on Guam for fear it would capsize.

Big college sports is a racket. Free "education" based on physical prowess. Colleges with big football programs are mostly free ride four year NFL training camps. Guess who's paying? (Hint: it isn't the NFL.)

And people say public education is bad. What about this. This is what you become when you rely on others to think for you.
