You've disagreed with something, but it's still not even clear to whom or what you're responding. My question to you was "How?" Because you seem to be saying there is a inherent connection between sporting events and patriotic events ... ?

The connection is the National Anthem itself. If you cannot see how so...

This addresses nothing of what I said.
Don't blame it on the teacher. You like to use that ATTACK.
Number one, I don't teach history or politics.
Number two, you attempt to absolve yourself of any responsibility as a "student".

I asked you to clarify which you posted a photo of 1984 with the statement "whipping into a frenzy". Isn't that known as incitement?

(Like we didn't see you type the Brit word for excrement with the i changed to y and then chastise me for my words.)

You now the rules just as well as me. For further clarification, question those in power.

If I could I wouldn't change the letters mentioned.

+1

As Ozzfan stated, everyone has the right of self expression & to protest as those rights were earned the hard way.

To see one person's opinion lambasted as b***s*** & by a teacher no less, speaks volumes.

Nice one BBC.

There's always 2 sides of any issue.

Some interesting points in the following report.

Too strong, too black

""It was just playing on my mind, I was like, '[Kaepernick's] worth $60m and he took a knee to risk it all for people like me, for people like the students that I see every single day,'" says Brown."

Ah but will he ever take a risk like yours coach Brown, or is he like many others regardless of colour - be a shyte & take the money & run!

Sarge, they don't understand. They will never understand. But they are both subjects of the Queen! That makes their brains think different.

But of course we're different. We're foreigners in a foreign land. The difference is that foreigners here do not have to take an oath of allegiance.

That wally woofer raising his fist only continues to incite racial hatred.

Don't worry Glenn, Yanks are wired up totally different to the rest of the world.

The latter, which has nothing to do with the Nation. They're whipped into a frenzy. Just like Winston and Julia were against whomever Big Brother said they were currently at war against.

So using a sports arena to incite war & political statements is okay then.

Gordon Bennett, what are you teaching your students?

You're stiiillllll not reeeading!

So clarify, after all you are a teacher & your pupil does not understand.

how much do you want to bet few to one no one's thinking of the country or the military when they stand and sing the anthem.

So what are they thinking of? Some wally woofer going to make a political statement or their team ready to kick some ass?

Seeing the pictures of the fallen and connecting it to sports is an absolute and complete disgrace to their memories.

Incorrect.

They fell to preserve freedom. That athlete & your statement dishonours that!

Yes, that athlete had the freedom to do what he did, but he did it in the wrong manner & the wrong place.

Those fallen also fell to give me that same freedom & I'm saying you're wrong.


B***s***. Read the article I linked, for one.
Two, how much do you want to bet few to one no one's thinking of the country or the military when they stand and sing the anthem. Just like not thinking about God when reciting/singing liturgy/hymns (particularly if in Latin, not understood).

So they fell to give you the freedom of speech while at the same time to quell the freedom of others - Is that what Yanks really think? Are they really full of bovine excrement?

BTW I've often attended sports stadiums & want to watch the game - not some greedy overpaid wally woofer making politic statements.

Yeah, tobacco is the source of all hospital problems - KMA!

"Binge drinking isn’t some fringe issue, it accounts for half of all alcohol consumed in this country. The crime and violence it causes drains resources in our hospitals, generates mayhem on our streets and spreads fear in our communities."

What are the stats for America?

Or Australia for that matter as you highlighted your tobacco issues.

"Australia's world of high finance and at least a dozen global banks have recently been thrust into the spotlight because of two separate lawsuits."

Are you suggesting that Australia's banking system is populated by Yankee "drones"?

There's a time & place for everything.

Sports Arenas & Movie theatres are there to provide entertainment for the crowds/audience.

If they want to spout political bovine excrement, then they should use the Jeremy Kyle Show, Opfrah Show, social media or political conventions.
