That's some crazy news. I'll be curious to see how the investigation of Hernandez's death turns out as there questions if he really did commit suicide. It just seems unlikely having just been acquitted from double murder.

He was still in jail for life for the other murder he was found guilty of though.

Just checked my fantasy league.

Hernandez is out indefinitely on a neck injury.

Goddamn it.

Broncos are weeding out season ticket holders who after-market sell their tickets, for any reason

The NFL shows it will never sink to Trump's level

I've pretty much turned a deaf ear to anything Trump says. He's pretty much like an internet troll in the comments section or message boards.

I am sick of hearing about it from Trump AND these idiot NFL players. They are all attention seeking hypocrites.

The protests will not end well for the NFL. A lot of damage has been done, and the amount of it will increase.

Politics won't sell football any better than it sells comics. And probably worse. Most comics fans are liberal. That doesn't describe most football fans.

The protests by the players seem to be a classic example of not knowing who your customers are. But I think their behavior is more fundamentally incompetent than that. I think they didn't even recognize that they're the employees of a business.

The players thought they were something like the priests in a religion, with the power to scorn and excommunicate anyone who displeases them, and to face no penalties for doing so.

The protests initially were about unjust treatment by law enforcement to Blacks and minorities, but became a protest of the POTUS after he called anyone that doesn't stand "unpatriotic" and a "SOB that should be fired." All that did was fan the flames of outrage and probably caused even more people to kneel in protest.

I'm not a fan of Tomi Lahren, but she was right when she said that if you asked a hundred protesters what the protests were about, you'd get a hundred different answers.

I don't like the National Anthem being played before sporting events. It's a custom that should never have been started. But you have to understand who ultimately pays your salary. Enough fans hate the protests that the NFL is being badly hurt. Television ratings are down 18.7 percent since Kaepernick started kneeling, and I bet that drop will continue.

The players don't have a goal or an end game, so they'll just keep at it. And the fans will just keep leaving.

What should be frightening the NFL the most is how many people are saying that they watched football religiously their whole lives, but now that they've stopped, they don't miss it at all -- that it was just a mindless, time-wasting habit.

Once that idea starts spreading, what can the NFL do to stop it?

I am just tired of seeing amd hearing about it. I turn on football to watch football, not listen to people's politics. As far as I'm concerned, these guys are employed to work, and I dont get to make political statements at work. Football has nothing to do with some people's beef with law enforcement.
