      I don't think he will. Anyone know how he is politically? Regardless he might give in because he'll lose his job. I feel bad for the players that feel pressured it's like high school all over again and drugs

      Of course he'll kneel. All white coaches can't supplicate enough to BLM to forgive them for being white. Their careers depend upon it. It's either go all in or find another job. Simple as that.

        Divits is right, any whitey who chose not to kneel would be run out of the league as a racist. We are actually at the point in this country that standing for our National Anthem will get you fired. It's beyond belief.

          You think he knew what he was signing up for? A lot has changed since he entered the league? All these old school nfl coaches aren't political correct for the league anymore.

            I dont care if he went to FSU....props to Magic C Jonathan Isaac for standing and not wearing a BLM shirt....he is too good of a person to be in that league....Billy I would guess based on how he conducts himself and his beliefs leans to the right but....like others have said, once you are an employee, you are essentially put in an ethical dilemma.....he has made his money.....I say screw it and stand...he might get fired but he wouldnt be unemployed long.....the only thing the Dems have left at this point is control through fear.....whether it's free speech consequences, Covid, destroying cities, etc....

            And how bout the awesome NFL now? You can kneel for the anthem, verbally go after police officers, wear pig socks, quote anti Semitism, beat your wife/gf, do drugs, beat a QB with your helmet (Myles Garrett) but yet.....YOU ARE BANNED FROM GOING TO CHURCH?! Hahahaha.....

                  He will kneel.

                  Im thinking he can’t afford the abuse.
                  Not only would he be completely ostracized by his players and administration, so would his entire family.

                  There is no free speech for Anyone that’s not 100% committed to BLM.

                  Ugly, upside down world we’re living in.

                    The NBA will kneel for the American but stand for the Chinese anthem.

                      I don't have any idea nor do I care.....because I will not be watching ANY pro sports likely ever again. Most certainly not the NBA for sure--they are right at the top of my "don't give a rat's turd" sports, along with NFL, MLB, and any other team sport at the pro level anymore. Haven't really in a very long time.

                      I'll watch golf, tennis, marble racing, car rusting exhibitions, and grass growing tournaments long before another team pro sport is in my view.

                        Unfortunately, he will most likely kneel for all the reasons already stated. However, in my opinion he should tell them to kiss his lily white ass. Then tell Christine he is done with these sorry ass black athletes and retire. Black Lives matter no more than any other life!

                          The same way the NFL players stood for the British National Anthem while kneeling during the American National Anthem. F*Ck all of you in the NFL, NBA and MLB.

                            He will kneel just like any white person hoping to keep his job.

                              When a person stands for the National Anthem and then later has to justify their reason for standing, that is when I take my BALLS and go home. I don;t give a flying fvkk if the NBA disappears forever!

                                  Starving for anything remotely close to competition, I tuned into the Golf tournament yesterday.

                                  Every commercial break included some sort of “social justice” or “we are in this together” bs message.

                                  Not one single Message for “ Blue Lives” or “all lives” or anything close to the “other side “.

                                  Just can’t escape the madness, or the “mob”.

                                    Election day could end this constant garbage. More people who don't care about politics and hate Trump will actually vote for him because they just want normalcy

                                      Like Loyal I couldn’t find a picture of Donovan kneeling with his team. Maybe there isn’t one because he was standing off to the side while the team knelt.

                                          The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
