    You know better and even if you don't, the NFL knows. It will start to hit thier pocket book, too.

I find it interesting that so many who have no clue about law enforcement can talk about cops being "squeamish" and the like. And I think it is terribly offensive to make an underhanded comment about "flashbacks from Fallujah." Until you understand the training that LE goes through and have been in an active shooter situation (even a drill or exercise), you have no clue. This rush to blame LE for everything is just sickening. I guess it is a rush to judgement based on the 8 years of the previous administration being wrong on just about every case and labeling LE as the bad guys. Cops don't become cops because they have nothing better to do, for many it is a calling much like serving in the military. I do think idhawkman has a point in that many good people that would become cops aren't because of the trashing they have gotten over the past year. God forbid that we actually talk about the suspects and what they did...let's remove personal responsibility and blame the cops for being squeamish instead of pointing out that some people are actually doing things that lead to the cops taking action.

    With Bennett, maybe he did nothing wrong, but his actions were suspicious and, given the circumstances, the cops did nothing wrong either. They see a runner in a reported active shooter situation...don't know if he is armed, and give chase. He is detained while they sort it out and released. What I find appalling is the cry of racism from Bennett claiming he was singled out for being black when there were other black people in the videos I have seen and, yet, there wasn't a round up of all minorities there...He was just the only one running from the police, jumping barriers, and hiding. Given the circumstances, for him to claim racism and not to realize that maybe his actions created suspicion, which is why he was detained, is disingenuous. But, here is the "jump on cops are bad and racist" narrative perpetuated by the media, BLM and Bennett. So sorry his feelings were hurt because a cop talked mean to him and he was detained for a whole ten minutes while things were sorted out.

    Since the SB win....a lot of ego and drama surround this team...moreso than seemingly the Pats or Falcs as example.

    Can the players just stfu and PLAY? yep. 100%

    Let them run for political positions AFTERwards....like Largent did.

    When the announcers talk more about Bennett hating cops than about any big play (cuz there weren't any)...maybe Pete should grab tighter control.
    Yes ! I agree !

    We're 1 week in, and there have been historic storms hitting major parts of the country...pretty sure those might have something to do with week 1 and probably 2 and 3 week ratings being down.

    Yeah, and they said last year was because of the presidential race that ended in early november. Its not like we haven't had major storms before.
