It's Sunday: What NFL Games Are You Watching?


I'll be watching the Vikings play today, and during commercial breaks I'll flip over to see what the Packers are doing.

What games are you watching today?

I don't begrudge you the entertainment. I just can't watch a bunch of millionaires tell me how tough they have it and how shitty America is for putting them in such a difficult situation of a luxurious life. I'm done until they stand the hell up and take their protest elsewhere. I eagerly await their protests against black on black violence in inner cities across America. I'm sure that's coming right up.

That's the thing Terran; it is entertainment to me. I don't read or watch sports news, and I don't watch pregame coverage. Hell I don't even know who's playing and who is on the IR list until game time.

That said, I understand where you're coming from and I have noting against those who boycott the NFL. For me the game is virtually free of charge to watch on TV and so I do, but you won't see me running out to buy tickets or merchandise. I often watch the game via DVR so, I'm not really watching the ads either.

For me it's a time to spend with the family, having a few social drinks, eating north mid-western comfort foods, and relaxing after a long week.

I know you're a family man, and I'm sure (or at least hope) you're having some fun quality time with them today

Hmmm .... Interesting. I'm just really frustrated at the way the NFL is acting. I didn't burn my Panthers gear, I just packed it away and won't buy anymore of their merchandise. To be honest, I will more than likely cave on Thanksgiving, though. Football was a big part of my family's life growing up, so it's really hard not to flip on the tv. College football is keeping me at bay, but soon it will be over and the NFL is left. That's when I'm going to be really tested, lol. I do like you're approach, though.

Well, unless Brett Hundley shows me something next game he's not the guy going forward. Most of his passes weren't even in the same zip code as his receivers.

I'm not asking for Rodgers-type accuracy, but it'd be nice if the wide outs had a chance at making a play.

Good luck finding enough of you progtards to prop up a majority-conservative sport that leftists were trying to destroy prior to its own leftist employees helping them do so. I hear the teams in California are doing just great on attendance, lol.

It ain't over yet, but it seems as if the NFL has lost on this issue.

Millionaires protesting how the American flag is racist to them gives you a reason to watch the NFL eh? Not shocking.

I'm sure this crowd will welcome you with open arms. Honkey.


IB4 hipsters try to gentrify football like they do inner city slums.

Watching the broncos lose gives some hope for the Raiders to make a run. Chiefs are showing weaknesses.

Is that the first match you see when you Google for the Raiders? If so, dang that was a close match.

Did you guys know that these protests affected NFL viewership outside the US?

Even in Brazil it was considered pretty rude (not by ESPN) to disrespect the flag and anthem.

Know a few people who stopped watching.

Do you guys have your own ESPN or is it a US feed?
