NFL tells players to STAND

60 posts in this topic

Nope, Goodell hasn't grown a pair.  NFL players should stand - but no punishment if you don't.  I would compare this to Gov Abott saying, you shouldn't go over the speed limit, but if you do, we won't do anything.  Good luck with that.  

But Governor, it's my constitutional right to go as fast as I want to.

Which simply quantifies his "commitment" to standing up for the "victims".  Probably not nearly as heartfelt sentiments as once suggested.

That is not a constitutional right, but peacefully protesting is.

I am thinking that peaceful protest is just fine.  But I am also thinking that if you are at work and want to take a knee when you are dealing with a customer/patient, your employer may have something to say about it.

Can you point to precisely where the Constitution grants this "right"?

And will you please answer my questions: Can your boss fire you if you refuse to wear clothing at work? Can your boss ban you from bringing a gun to his workplace?

You have a second amendment right to bear arms. Does your boss have the right to fire you if you bring a gun to work? Does a company have a right to ban your 2nd amendment right at their facility?

Walking naked isn't a constitutional right. The Supreme Court ruled in 1946 that it is unconstitutional to try and make a person stand for the pledge. 

The Supreme Court made this clear in 1943 when it decided the landmark case of West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette. In that case, school children who were Jehovah's Witnesses refused to salute the flag because it was against their religion to do so, and as a result they were expelled or threatened with expulsion.

The Supreme Court forcefully ruled that punishing students for not participating in the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional. 

Federal Courts have stated that guns can't be bought into certain buildings, so that is not considered something that violates a person's constitutional rights.

If you have a problem with that sue and go to court

The Oakland running back last was thrown out of the game last night.  Was this violating his rights?  NO.  Because the NFL makes rules ALL THE TIME controlling player's behavior AND actions.  So -- YES -- they can tell them to stand for the Pledge Of Allegiance!

Wow, a lot of big font words...but you still didn't answer the question. Can you be fired for refusing to wear clothes at work? Can you be fired for bringing a gun to work? Can you be fired for cursing your boss? Can you be fired for making disparaging remarks about the company you work for? I think even you should be able to understand this simple point. Can your boss fire you for breaking company rules? Let's see how many unrelated topics you can list instead of answering the question.

    • Port Neches-Groves @ Beaumont Central
      Well here you go then. Alot are picking this to be a blowout. I will assure you it want.  From the start I picked PNG to win the District and I said a couple of weeks ago that they would beat PAM. They will struggle against central.  The strength of central defense is there secondary. Png wrs will see more man coverage then they have seen all year. And press coverage will bother them.and PAM showed wat not to do wen u get a lead.conserverative on both side of the ball.lets not bring up refs lol. But if png is able to run the ball on them.long nite jags. 28-21 either way. And it want surprise me if central won.
