    Silence sometimes can be so loud.

    I wish this came out before Fangioís statements. While I think Fangioís statements were taken to an extreme, the timing was horrible, about as bad as you can get, so bad that I almost thought it was made prior to what happened. And now I fear Elwayís statement (and I donít doubt the sincerity of it at all), may get misconstrued as damage control by some of the letís just say louder media voices.

    We're going to leave this open for now. I will issue the reminder that we need to keep politics out of it. We need to stay civil towards each other (if you're getting upset talk a break and come back to it tomorrow).

    Agreed. Elway himself agrees.

    It takes character to admit you were wrong and wanting to grow a deeper understanding.

    Most employers demand that no politics, religion, or anything to do with race be discussed while at work.

    That should hold true for the NFL players, as well.

    I agree with BB. You are at work... at mine we cannot use the platform to express our thought on politics, religion etc...

    Why is it unreasonable for the NFL to demand the same? Players can use their celebrity off the field, ie not at work... to spread their message..

    I would love for all of that to be out of the game, so when I turn it on... I am entertained by the product, as it should be,,, two teams, there to play a game.

    Well I'm glad I dont work for neither one of your companies. As my job has open forum and stand by the cause. Glad Roger Godell is doing the right thing for the message to continue. Some things are just bigger than football and for some entertainment purposes.
