Maybe I just don't know enough of the back story, but that just seems like a rambling rant to me.
Interesting. I would have said impassioned rather than rambling, and for a live to camera piece, I think he makes his points well.
Maybe it's just how it reads in the transcript then. It all seems a bit staccato with sentences not being finished properly. Having read it again, I think I get the point - that he's disappointed that the NFL players didn't protest until Trump said something about the ones who did.
I think he was more dissapointed that the owners didn't join the protest until Trump waded in with his 'you should fire them' nonsense. That it was less about supporting issues facing American blacks, and more about Trump interfering in their business.

It's worth noting that it's from Fox Sports UNDISPUTED show which is 'a daily two-and-a-half hour sports debate show', so I imagine it's a prepared piece from autocue, which makes it slightly less impressive. :lol:

Good result for the packers last night (jordy nelson... :hyper:)... shame they lost Montgomery, Adams though... would be the season if they don't come back.

:D ... when I used to do call centre work, if there was a name I wasn't sure about I would just google image search and go with the majority.

Atlanta and New Orleans both on bye weeks... :(

Don't really fancy having to replace Elliot as well. Is there an penalty for lots of waiver changes?

Nope - do as many as you want. You'll notice I'm streaming defences each week based on matchup.

No confirmation on Zeke yet though - I've definately lost Dalvin Cook to an ACL tear.

So - I'm going to forget about the fact that dropping Ertz has cost me a certain win, and start crossing my fingers that the Vikings defence has a monster game. Pretty glad I didn't bring in Eli Manning and the Detroit Defence as I intended to... :oops:

Dallas / Packers was a pretty great game. Given that both teams were a bit banged up - should be there or there abouts in the playoffs.
