Default Vin Scully: 'I will never watch another NFL game'

I have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed, Scully said, according to multiple videos of the moment posted on social media. I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday. And its not that Im some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year. Didnt go anywhere. Didnt do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.

So if Vin interviewed all these kneeling players, how many would say they have no respect for the men and women of the armed forces? I think the motivation behind the act is being lost on both sides.

That only a country of true justice and equal rights for all is worthy of having our flag fly over it and an anthem sung in its honor with our hands on our hearts. Clearly, all of us still have work to do to make this so, and although I personally am grateful to our military and law enforcement for their sacrifices already made to this ideal, I think the message that we (including some members of the military and police) collectively still have some ways to go is resonating. These things take time, though, and we must remember, the American Experiment can never truly reach an end, but only ever be in progress.

Jackie wouldn't have kneeled. He wasn't a racist.

I don't think it's about racism as much as he was prideful of being an American even if we aren't perfect . Nothing bothers me more than a fellow American spouting off how fat we are, how stupid we are or how the world views us when I myself am in the top 2-5% health wise, admit when I am talking out my azz, and know we live in a great country with TONS of opportunity.. we are so lucky to be Americans and we are good people as a whole.

The kneeling is a misguided thing now bc of the multiple agendas. I wouldn't do it but I can understand why some people do. That's their right. Said before I'm a younger good looking white guy .. I have never experienced racial injustice so I won't sit here and bs that i know what it's like to be of color . I do know that EVERYONE is a racist to some degree... and we ALL profile people .. it's apart of our sociterybut it's also our responsibility to admit it and try harder to think to ourselves hey try not to do that.. that's all I know man

Vin's opinion is irrelevant and he's foolish for voicing an opinion where he once was adored by the masses, now makes comments that can only alienate a segment of his now former fans seeing his lame gesture of protesting the NFL as being narrow-minded, using the term "never watch another NFL game" - - he needs proper publicity managers to help him communicate. He should have said "until the drama impacting my enjoyment of the game and distractions becoming the foreground of discussions, I'll find other things to to rather than watch the games" or something to that effect that keeps him on the higher road.

I'll admit I have since a young age always been so optimistic about People in general believing everyone has something to give to society... BUT unfortunately that the older I've gotten, my cyanosism has negatively eaten at me ... which is basically self controlled ...


But yes sir or ma'am I def agree with whatever quotes you pulled my statements from ... sometimes you should get off the I'm a self righteous positive person soap box when you're ridiculing others with negativity ., def guilty and need to do a better job for my own sake ...

How many of them would tell the truth?

None of them Care about that. They only care about money, drugs and raping woman.
