It took the first preseason game when he was in the SF gear.  In the prior two preseason games, he was in street clothes and the news story was that he was sulking.

so where is the PR stunt?

The August 28th entry was pretty telling.  A couple weeks later, he did a donation of $1M.  Not a small thing, but one wonders about the timing.  Nonetheless, this was an actual and meaningful sacrifice that didn't get nearly the coverage.  For whatever reason, Americans love their token gestures.

Directv gave me Sunday ticket free for this year when I canceled HBO after GOT was done.  I took it, but  I have yet to watch it.  Spent last sunday at the game, and the week before that, we went out after the Panthers/Buffalo game was done.  I doubt I will keep it though.  Just don't care enough about the other games to do much beyond read NFL.com about the results. 

Hell, I do not even do that.

If DirecTV offered the streaming package to everyone instead of discriminating against me for where I live, and if they offered a one team package the way the NBA does them my hard earned money.  My money is not good enough for them it seems.

In that same note, you dont bite the hand that feeds you either. Maybe all the players should just not play. That might cut in to their wallet though. So their own beliefs are not that important? That would be a better protest. Stand for the anthem then kneel during the game and refuse to play

I know that this is totally off topic, but I wish the Bucs and Dolphins would do this for their match-up on what should be their bye week.  NBA players have done it recently in nationally televised games to protest back-to-backs and whatnot and it led to a change in the schedule.

It would never happen in the NFL though.  That is what happens with non-guaranteed contracts.

So the NFL players are protesting legally and peacefully, and you are protesting them by breaking federal laws.
