    NFL great Jim Brown, known for his activism, says he would never kneel for anthem

    Jim Brown: “I’ll never kneel”

    Brown, known as one of the most prominent activist/athletes of his era (and probably all eras), said he would never kneel for the national anthem according to Tom WIthers of the Associated Press.

    “I’ll never kneel and I will always respect the flag,” Brown told Withers before the HBO premiere of “Hard Knocks” that features the Browns.

    Brown, who is 82, said he supported the players’ rights to kneel. But he didn’t agree with what they’re doing.

    “Well, if you take the bottom line, what are we talking about? We’re talking about freedom to express one’s self, and if you don’t break any rules then you have that particular right,” Brown told the Associated Press.

    “I am not going to denigrate my flag and I’m going to stand for the national anthem. I’m fighting with all of my strength to make it a better country, but I don’t think that’s the issue. Because what is the top side? Are you not going to stand up? This is our country, man.

    “We work hard to make it better and that’s my attitude, so I don’t relate to this issue because it’s newsworthy because where are your superstars? And where are they at? Aren’t they making comments?”

    The guy is a very well known abuser of women, not sure I'd look to him on advice on questions of principle.

    The large majority of players in the NFL don't kneel for the anthem either.

    Did he beat his women? That's a shame if he did.. Wouldn't be the first for a Pro football player to do that.. It's a violent sport after all and the front lobe of the brain takes a beating with helmet to helmet hits day after day even in practice....

    I guess it happens.. Agro and short tempered...

    15 players still kneeled or held up a fist during our National Anthems yesterday.. NFL does nothing.. Trump tweets on it...

    NFL is still a joke and afraid to discipline their rouge employees.. Inmates are still running the prison I see...

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/08/09...al-anthem.html

    These are 2 of your kneelers yesterday... They probably don't even know why they are kneeling..

    LOL at the racist prick idiot JLABIA, all good with woman beater Jim Brown but kneel during a song and you are a rouge employee. Now he also claims to be a mind reader lol. So sad and quite frankly sickening that bigoted impotent ass holes like you still exist.

    Gives Brown a pass for being a woman beater because of damage to the front lobe but peacefully protest a important issue in our society and get called an inmate. You disgust me.

    If black people have been screwed as much as they say they've been they all would have struck oil by now. These players can scream about how much black lives matter but they'll find out how much white money matters when the white money is gone

    If these libtards and "protesting" blacks had any sense they would get a clue when a lifelong activist like Jim Brown disagrees with what's happening. Of course they don't have any sense, and will now turn on Jim Brown and attack him for betraying their flock of ignorance.

    What I find funny is all these players that kneel and say what they r protesting for. Yet during the offseasons or even during th he season they take no time or money to gather and set up a protest or march to get involved and make a statement. They choose to do it when it convenient for them and never take another stance when they can. How can anybody take them serious

    What have those other people done but used their race inorder to make money,we have plenty of those sorts of shills in the white community,Alex Jones good example.

    Im not including Jim Brown in that statement,never considered Jim a fraud.

    This is such a non story.

    Just more proof that the anthem protest was a terrible idea.

    Another year and another public forgetting what the protest is about because everyone is focused on the anthem

    Way to go Cap, way to start something then totally fuk it up because you are not a leader.

    Find a leader, or continue to discuss the anthem instead of any issues at play.

    It's bad enough they chose the anthem to send their message

    They have no message. Their message changed constantly and it was always based on false narratives and lies. If they were protesting Hollywood glorifying uneducated criminal lifestyles in the black community, or the Democrat party enslaving them for generations with entitlements, then maybe it would be more understandable. Still misguided to do it during the anthem, but more understandable.

    The protesters might as well protest during a soldier's funeral because it's the exact same thing. Rights are not necessarily the same thing as what IS right.

    Yup it's a rude interruption for fans and Americans to see during our American sport pass time, may as well burn the flag during the anthem on the side lines if you really wanna protest and draw attention to yourself.. No difference there either..

    Owners need to discipline their children, this should have never happened in the first place.. You don't see it happening in other sports leagues..

    League punishes players for over celebrating in the end zone but they say nothing about this... NFL is run by a bunch of idiots.. Sad..
