Because they are visitors in a different country. Anything else would be very rude to the hosts.

So, when they play in US stadiums that we fans payed for we are essentially the hosts and not standing is being very rude to us.

I had a very similar heated debate with a Catholic priest years back. He made a comment about it being his church. I corrected him, saying that priests (like coaches, players and sometimes owners) come and go but the parishioners (like fans) are constant. We fill the pews (seats) every Sunday and pay the bills.

Britain has a racist past as well; I guess only the American version is offensive!

So in another country black oppression doesn't exist? They didn't worry about being rude in their own country so I still don't get the point.

Whatever. All that drama is in the political forum.

We WON people. We're 2-2 with a bullet for the love of Pete's ghost.

Bring on the Lions!

Will either back break out today?

I sure hope we don't suck.
Still much to prove on the defense but yeah, we have clearly taken a step.

How 'bout Kamara!?!

Many other countries acknowledge their past. After all, it was a Spaniard who said. "Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it."

The same holds for those who choose to ignore or try to re-write history to their liking.

As I write this post early in the 4th Cam has 300+ yards passing and 3 TDs and they lead NE 29-16 in NE. Can't compare games, but our D is improving week to week.

Yeah we've kinda poisoned the forum with all the political talk. It's frustrating to many on both sides but we can't keep doing this all season.

I'm with you. Let's be happy we're 2-2 and going on a bye to get healthy.
