I decided to post this here rather than the football board because it would end up here anyway.

One day people will learn to keep their opinions off social media.

one day people will learn to be decent human beings that don't need to hide their opinions

He knew what he was doing so I really have no sympathy for him. I don’t think one picks June out of the blue to voice your opinion about gay pride.

Yup & the team had the right to react to that opinion in the manner of their choosing.
correct and teams have a right to not pick colin k if they want to not pick him. and when i say that i am not trying to pick a fight. i support colin k.'s right to kneel as well as c. j.'s right to his opinion and i am not trying to say the two are equal. i hope both make squads when football starts back up.

If I run an NFL franchise and Patrick Mahomes makes these comments then I publicly chastise hI'm and tell everyone that a players views do not necessarily reflect the whole team's views. If however my 3rd string running back makes these comments then I am cutting him. He is not worth the struggle. I believe people should be able to sleep with whoever they want but cutting a player is a business decision l, not a personal one.

Twitter and Booze are a deadly combination.

Why do people have the audacity to believe that they are entitled to a different opinion?

We all know what we are allowed to say and think and what we aren’t. He should have known better.

Its 2020 CJ, you know you aren’t allowed to believe something different, much less say it out loud.
Silly man.

No, he is free to be as bigoted as he wishes. But those decisions have consequences.

Jimmy Johnson was asked after cutting a guy for sleeping during a film room study if he would do it to Troy Aikman. He said “ No but I would make sure he doesn’t do it again”
