Villanueva: The Truly Brave NFL Player
In the midst of all the controversy about players in the National Football League (NFL) choosing to “take a knee” during the playing of the National Anthem to protest alleged systemic police mistreatment of African-Americans, one player stands out for courage, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva. It is easy to follow the multitude, but it takes courage to do what Villanueva did Sunday.

Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin told a CBS reporter that his team would not participate in the National Anthem before Sunday’s game, but would instead remain in the locker room until it was over. Tomlin explained his position: “You know, these are very divisive times for our country and for us as a football team, it’s about us remaining solid. We’re not going to be divided by anything said by anyone.” He added that he told his players “if you feel the need to do anything, I’m going to be supportive ...

NFL Player Arrested EVERY 7 Days(Friday Church News Notes, October 6, 2017, www.wayoflife.org) - The following is from “Who Needs Rules? NFL Players Arrested Every 7 Days on Average” by Joseph Curl, Daily Wire, Sep. 25, 2017: “The National Football League is in a golden age right now: It’s been 23 days since one of its players has been arrested. The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to NFLarrest.com, which ‘provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges,’ the site says. Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder. The NFL virtually embraces players who abuse women. Take this report in the Chicago Tribune: ‘In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. 6th,Etc..."

But as popular as Trump’s comments were among the crowd in Alabama, his comments have stoked controversy across the country. Hundreds of players, owners, and teams peacefully protested during the national anthem at last weekend’s games, far more than any other display to date.

Ryan, who counts himself as a co-owner of the Green Bay Packers, expressed his disapproval of players who have refused to stand during the anthem, many of whom are protesting police brutality and racial inequality.

“The national anthem, our flag and the people who defend it and represent it - that should be celebrated everywhere and always, and that's my opinion,” Ryan said Tuesday.

I gave up on the NFL and college football years ago. I learned how Christians in Roman times stood against gladiator sports and saw the same kinds of base attractions in football...organized violence. I also noted that there is a strong female sensual side piece, making football with it's organized violence and female sensuality crafted to provoke or feed primary the lusts of the flesh and the eyes. Finally, NFL games are played primarily on Sunday, our day of rest. It is not the example I want for our child. Many professing Christians we know enjoy football and follow it closely. We are taking a 1 Peter 4:1-6 approach.

It is little wonder, then, that modern day gladiators are standing against the government under which they live. Is there nothing new under the sun? Were there not gladiator revolts in Rome?

the elite are using the MSM to push false narratives to provoke a race war.

this is their cultural marxist agenda.

as they erase history and purge our cities of their statues.

it is on folks.

whatever it is they are attempting.

if the nfl crashes and burns they do not care.

take a look at any eastern bloc soviet country during their reign, or take a look at north korea today.

elite use commnsm to take down strong societies.

but ours is not strong.

the middle class ended at nafta.

there are few jobs left and they go to foreigners. the poverty is caused by lack of opportunity and freedom to freely trade and sell without giving incense to this system.

in chicago thousands of black americans are shot by fellow blacks.

they do not protest the plight of the black man or anyone else in these dreadful democratic failing violent cities.

but instead lift up the very ones that push the welfare/abortion state.

those who want their people set free from destruction are called h@ters.

the public is against this move they make.

but the elite hold our currency and the MSM.

and the pastors who have great opportunity remain silent.

“Unfortunately, I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally,” Villanueva said at a press conference on Monday. “Every single time I see that picture of me, standing by myself, I feel embarrassed.”

Villanueva appeared to stand firm on Sunday, holding his his hand over his heart as the song played, while his teammates remained in the tunnel behind him in protest of President Donald Trump’s recent criticism of players who "disrespect" the U.S.

I haven't figured out if all the players are going to stay in the tunnel or all from we're going to come out? The article was a little confusing. 🇺🇸

A solution to the controversy - temporarily suspend playing the national anthem at all sporting events nationwide. What can they do then?!
