Lavar Ball On Anthem Policy

Basketball dad LaVar Ball believes that NFL National Anthem protesters should quit the league if they have a problem with the new policy requiring players to stand for the anthem.

“It’s their league. If you don’t want to do it, get out [of] their league,” stated Ball. “That’s why I got my own league. Do what I want.”

Ball is currently trying to build his own junior basketball league which would be an alternative to College basketball.

“I got some youngsters, man. They going to do the anthem. They not going to be kneeling and doing all that. Yeah, we’ll have the anthem,” he said. “If you want to protest … do what you gotta do.”

    Or move to Mexico, Iran, North Korea, China or Russia and start your own league. Not sure how these American hating nations will respond to your hatred of their government should you dislike their policies.

    guess he is still trying to make himself relevant, especially seeing that even with Lakers giving son 2 a look see, seems nobody will be drafting this young man,

    And with youngest son, what will he do for that son, keep him in Lithuania.

    Those deranged loons want to protest? How about the whole country then do our own protest by tuning out EVERYTHING having to do with the NFL? If the sponsors see that the league is no longer profitable for them they will stop throwing money at them. Also, just look at the mockery that the useless hole, Beyoncé made of the halftime show. The NFL is the new Black Panthers, pure and simple.

    No one is asking these athletes to give up their Civil rights, their political views or their personal characteristics. All they are asked to do is to stand quietly for about 2 and a half minutes and pay respect to a song representing all that this nation is and has been for over 200 years. Instead of kneeling in disrespect of this nation, these athletes should stand quietly, reflecting on the success they have achieved living in this nation and the fact that because they live here, they have become the privileged elitists they protest against.

      What if our nations’ poor, unprivileged, unemployed (gainfully) white people decide to turn on these elitist athletes and demand they get what these supremacist athletes seem to take for granted?

    Kaepernick, the left’s new favorite crusader who quit his job with the 49ers, said:


    That’s an asinine statement for a multi-millionaire black athlete to say. There isn’t a country on the planet where black people have it better than in America. In fact, Blacks in America would comprise the 18th wealthiest country in the world.

    As for police brutality and Blacks being shot by police, look at the facts. (A) Blacks are 13% of the population but commit 68% of the crimes. (B) If Blacks didn’t commit so much crime, there would be fewer confrontations with the police. (C) Black criminals are usually armed and actually shoot more police than Blacks shot by police. (D) Too many Blacks hate police, but when they need help they don’t call other Blacks … they call the police!

    Blacks continue to vote Democrat, despite the fact that every hell-hole in America (like Milwaukee, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Atlanta, Cleveland, Houston, etc.) are run by Democrats. And why the hell do they continue to support “Planned Parenthood,” which aborts over 300,000 Black babies each year? I thought Black Lives Matter?! Is this ignorance or simply stupidity?

    The “War On Cops” was instigated by the great divider, Barack Obama, a radically racist Black Muslim who, with help from Erik Holder and Al Sharpton, set race relations back 50 years. And by the way, Trump has done more for Blacks in 505 days than Obama did in 8 years!

    Asking the players to not take a knee during the Anthem is kinda like not farting at the dinner table. If you can’t understand common respect and where your at there is no place for you.
