    Trump says Pence's trip to Indianapolis football game 'was long planned' after VP walks out after National Anthem protest and is slammed for 'PR stunt'
    • Vice President Mike Pence left Sunday's Indianapolis Colts game after several members of the San Francisco 49ers, kneeled during the National Anthem
    • A member of the press pool revealed that Pence's early departure was pre-planned, and reporters were told to stay in their vans
    • Pence was quickly slammed by politicians and protest-friendly NFL players for the stunt – with many calling it a waste of taxpayer dollars
    • Air Force Two is a modified Boeing 757 that costs nearly $43,000 per hour to operate, and Pence flew a combined five hours to go to the game
    • 49ers safety Eric Reid called Pence's arrival and quick exit an act of 'systematic oppression' that demeaned his protest
    • 'I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,' Pence tweeted
    • President Trump tweeted Monday morning: 'The trip by @VP Pence was long planned. He is receiving great praise for leaving game after the players showed such disrespect for country!'

    Goodell sure has come a long way

    From "we can't let Trump win" to sneakily changing the rules and publicly saying "everyone must stand"

    Too disingenuous and too late for me

    Not without changing it won't. National Anthem aside, the whole CTE thing will end up either killing it or turning it into something one or two steps above touch football.

    On some level, it comes down to cheering for people to injure themselves to the point of cutting their life short for the purpose of entertaining people.





    111 N.F.L. Brains. All But One Had C.T.E.
    The brains here are from players who died as young as 23 and as old as 89. And they are from every position on the field — quarterbacks, running backs and linebackers, and even a place-kicker and a punter.

    They are from players you have never heard of and players, like Ken Stabler, who are enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Some of the brains cannot be publicly identified, per the families’ wishes.


    About 1,300 former players have died since the....group began examining brains. So even if every one of the other 1,200 players had tested negative — which even the heartiest skeptics would agree could not possibly be the case — the minimum C.T.E. prevalence would be close to 9 percent, vastly higher than in the general population.

    The N.F.L.’s top health and safety official has acknowledged a link between football and C.T.E., and the league has begun to steer children away from playing the sport in its regular form, encouraging safer tackling methods and promoting flag football.

    Why don't they just give back the money and do away with the whole thing? The whole game should be played in 2, 2 minute half's, with 4 time outs. That's all that is worth watching anyway.

    The players are only out there for the anthem because the teams are being paid to have out there, why don't we just stop paying them and end this farce? Does anyone else remember Mike Ditka on rollerskates?
