It honestly was one of the most disgusting things I've ever witnessed. Just come out and say you never cared about the flag or the soldiers. You just don't want racial equality.
Funny thing is, I think the folks who were booing might assume the exact same thing about the players. It all depends on your definitions.

Chiefs were out on the field for the anthem.
Texans came out after the anthem.
Then both teams stood together at midfield to observe a moment of silence.

Audible boos.
Once the silence was over, there were cheers too.

The cheers were much louder, but the boo birds were very vocal and obviously easy to pick out given the silence.
What was the moment of silence for?

People just want to watch football. That’s why the boo’d. Pretty evident
That's a bull jive excuse. Anybody who's been to an NFL game knows that there's countless amounts of activities, presentations, ceremonies, and acknowledgments throughout and NFL game. The people who are saying they just want to watch football are full of shit because you actually see more football by watching on TV than being at the actual game. At home the only thing you have to deal with is commercials and you're not at liberty to watch them. Hell you can change the channel and watch another game. The RedZone channel is made specifically so that you don't even have to change the channel and can watch games non stop all day.

While you are at an NFL game in person there's a new distraction between every single play that takes you away from the game.

Here's a list of shit that happens at every Browns game

Helmet shuffles
Fan giveaways
Dogg pound game captains
We honor the military every fucking game
The police
The fire department
Doctors
Nurses
School age kids
Adopting pets
Cancer awarness
BUD LIGHT!!!!!!!!!
Jackpot fan raffles
That corny ass drumline
Military flyover (waste of taxpayer dollars)
The Browns just refurbished a local schools football field
Swagger randomly licking his you know what
Fans getting their seats upgraded
There's a whole mini camp outside of the stadium with a bounce house
In the corner by the dogg pound there's a BBQ grill that looks like a civil war LARP with all of the smoke
Every game The Browns honor a former player by inviting him to the game and playing his highlights
Random celebrity guest. Usually a local guy who's also an athlete like a golfer or wrestler or even actors.
Pee wee football at halftime


So for all of the people who say they just want to watch football I'm here to tell you that anybody who goes to a live game and says that is a liar. Flat out. NFL games are some of the best entertainment experiences out there. Especially Browns games. The most die hard fan who's there to just watch football will tell you to your face that it's hard to not observe all of the other shit that's happening. Even the guys that I sit next to who still come to the games with their headphones in and listen to the call on the radio will still peak up at the helmet shuffle and jump out of their seats like they were the ones who just won an autographed Dwayne Rudd helmet.

That would be great if they got rid of the filler during games if that means they actually played football instead of watching players stand around for 5 minutes every 10 minutes staring at the ground waiting for the commercials to end.

btw the military flyovers are used as training.

And I didn't even mention the anthem in my post but I'll address it now.

As a veteran who's seen my fare share of action or whatever you want to call it, I do not like hearing the national anthem before sporting events. It never feels right to me. We aren't preparing for a battle. We aren't even opposing another nation. We're talking about sports teams within this country going head to head in a competition. It's not life or death or the last stand. I don't need to honor America before I see a triple double. To me, there's no place for the anthem before sporting events within country. If we were playing abroad I could understand it somewhat but I do not see any logical reason for it to be played and worshiped before sporting events.

If all sports leagues decided to do away with playing the anthem before games people would instantly move on. They'd just find something else to replace it with like another hot dog race or babies crawling at half court racing to the free throw line.

Thread locked for the day. Take it to the political forum, this is an embarrassing thread.

I saw your complaint elsewhere that this thread was paused due to switching to a political debate.

That's exactly what your post here suggested people wanted. A break to just think about football.

I can't give you both. Pick one thing to complain about and stick with it. Sheesh.

Tomorrow, let's try to talk football.
