Can they wear something for the 40+ million babies aborted in the womb?  19+ million were black babies.  That's far more murders than any amount of police brutality.

 

Or are only certain social causes allowed?  

 

 

and 3......2.....1.........

I wonder if it would be frowned upon if people wore a blue lives matter sticker?

Blue Lives Matter™ Thin Blue Line U.S. Flag Decal – policetees.com

I believe this is a violation of the flag code, if so, it would be inappropriate.

is “Keep America Great 2020” an option?

 

If you wear it in PPP only.

 

The NFL is unlikely to allow political stickers and if they did you would probably be unhappy/whining/pissing pants if they did.

I saw that nowhere in the article but, even if they were allowed to (LOL) do you think anyone actually would when Drew Brees was masssacred for his stance on the National Anthem?

Decals? Pah! If they really cared they'd get it tattooed on themselves

 

Yes and on the face since it would not be a uniform violation if they took their helmet off between plays like Marvel movie superheroes.

I guess the NFL going from fining Jake Plummer for wearing a message honoring Pat Tillman to letting all players wear messages of a certain opinion is progress. 
Or they’re just another company that pretends to care about social issues in 2020 because that’s the way the wind is blowing.

That's a way to get head hunted on the field.

Can players honor police who have rescued or saved minorities from violence? Or is that considered too racist?

Sorry, brother, it doesn’t work that way. If you don’t want to allow professional athletes to also be people and support their causes — in a way that doesn’t impact the game you’re watching AT ALL — you are free to change the channel.

How would that be considered racist?

Slight sarcasm because things have become so polarized...seems like no one is allowed to say anything positive about police...

Or the five Dallas officers that were murdered that the NFL wouldn't allow the Cowboys to wear a decal in honor of.

 

I would assume that's what "or fallen police officers on their helmets means" - it is now allowed

🤷‍♂️

this neighborhood we got "Thank you, Officers" and "Black Lives Matter" signs - sometimes on the same lawns.

Enough people will start to do that if this continues and it will affect the bottom line.  The virtue signaling will be over and the NFL will return to it's bread and butter as it should.  Politics should not be mixed with sports.  As many have said, it's a way to get away from the real world, nothing that you and your ilk say about "changing the channel" or any other write off, will change that.  Keep doing this NFL, it will not end well.
