What wrong with a double standard? Hypocrisy!
Whats wrong with that
What that priest did to you was wrong, wrong, wrong! You don’t need to justify that behavior. Abuse is abuse and it is wrong.

That was a reasonable troll.

Wow. GOOD FOR THAT COACH! Sets a good example for those players. You can't appreciate what you've been given and show some respect for the other country's team that you're playing? Then you don't deserve to be on the ice.

It's one thing for the GOVERNMENT to control free speech, it's another completely for a coach to set a respectable example for his players.
Yeah, a great example by using that kind of language. What a jerk.

Plus, where were you when Lou Whitaker and Chet Lemon of the Detroit Tigers refused to stand for the anthem? Oh, double-standard table for one.
Language? You don't think those guys have heard (and have used) that language before?? How old do you think those guys are? Grade school kids???

Don't really recall the Lou and Chet thing, but looking it up they were doing that based on their religious beliefs, not because they hated America and everything it stood for.
Do you believe coaches and other authorities should set a good example? Obviously not. Who cares if the players have heard and/or used that language before? A coach cursing at his players is communicating it’s okay to curse at him. If he gets offended, then he has nobody to blame but himself. No player should be disciplined for cursing out the coach if the coach is cursing at them with no consequences.

Oh, and black people are kneeling to respect the flag and protest police brutality aimed at black people, not because they hate America. You don’t get to decide motive.
1) Setting a good example goes much farther than just the words you use. It's a matter of priorities. Listen to the message first, then you can worry about the words.

2) No, the coach cursing does not give the players the "right" to curse back at him. They get that "right" when they are good enough be be coaches on their own.

3) We all know what his motive was. Anyone with a brain can read between those lines.

1. Words matter and actions matter. You can’t separate them.

2. A leader leads by example and isn’t afraid of those under him doing what he does.

3. His motive was to act like a big man. #fail

Well, #3 was about Kappernick, so I agree with you!!

Some people are eloquent speakers but have no message, or the wrong message and can talk people into doing bad things just because they speak eloquently (we saw that for 8 years). Some do not speak eloquently but have important messages and the right direction. Nice to have both, but you need to get your priorities straight.

It was a staged video aimed at rallying the Trump echo-chamber and ticking off the anti-Trumpers.

I saw it as an ignorant comment aimed at restricting free speech regardless of the political topic at hand.
