    there were a lot of people that felt offended against the kneeling during the anthem that they felt was disrespectful.

    whether they now changed their mind doesn't change what they thought then.
    What they thought then was that they were never going to watch the NFL again. They lied.

    It does if they said they would "never" watch football again. Guess what? They're watching again. You talk about hypocrisy but seem to have a very loose grasp on what it actually is.

    Cry some more, gramps.

    changing their mind is not lying unless they knew at the time they would watch again.

    still would not change how they felt at the time either.

    "When I said 'never,' I really just meant until I changed my mind. It's totally consistent, don't worry!"

    True. But we all knew they were going to change their minds. That just means they are fickle and untrustworthy.

    I thought liberals were the only ones who have fits of fake outrage though. Wonder how many of these hypocrites feel when they see all these NFL commercials about ending racism and racial inequality.

    It really grinds their gears. It spits right in the face of their "everything is already equal" mindset.

    doesn't change how they felt at the time. that was the point, the kneeling that was supposed to be about racism was seen as being divisive and disrespectful, it did not work for the intended goal.

    I thought that facts don't care about people's feelings (whether in the past, present, or future)?

    That's fine. Replacing one time of racism with another kind of racism is not progress to me. In fact, it is worse. All of the hatred that is being sown by the BLM, Nation of Islam, Southern Poverty Law Center, et al is just revenge for real and perceived injustices committed 50-200+ years ago by people of all different races, creeds, and colors. Martin Luther King wouldn't want this kind of society methinks.

    Who is the "they" you are talking about? Taking patriotism away for a sporting event did offend people and still does. But even more so was the reason why they did it. That also hasn't gone away. To a lot of people, it feels good to sing the national anthem and to stand with you fellow Americans. Now, you may not like that and that is fine also. But that is not the issue. The issue is that the league decided to favor one subset of the population to another and to take away what they like to do and replace it with something that someone else likes to do.

    And, people can vote with their pocketbook and not support a company or in this case a league which has marketing arms everywhere that is biased towards one group of people.

    Oh there it is. MLK reference to defend doing nothing on racism. I bet you are going to pull out that one MLK quote that all conservatives have memorized by heart.
