Calls for speculation.....So speculate

Post by DallasDimeBags » Sat May 26, 2018 11:06 pm

What if,instead of taking the tact that the NFL has on players kneeling during the National Anthem,they instead said-Go ahead. Kneel to your heart's content. But we are not going to be giving you media exposure when you do so. And additionally,since these actions have caused a significant loss of revenue you should expect that the large increase in player salaries that have been occurring will be jeopardized. Perhaps even resulting in lower salaries.

What would happen?

The players might respond that the networks, not the league, controls what gets broadcast.

They might. They also might respond that the principle is far more important than their paychecks. It could happen given how deeply principled they are don't you think?

Maybe they would respond that the NBA's method of handling the national anthem is the way to go.

Maybe if they did not receive any attention or as much attention for their "principled actions" (which is essentially what the locker room policy would likely do) against police brutality" and misconduct against noble black men the whole thing would fizzle out?
