As Americans are paying their respect to our military on Veterans Day weekend many of us have called for a boycott of the National Football League in response to player protests during the national anthem and have urged others NOT to watch any NFL games-especially today.
One of our Facebook pages, Nation In Distress which has over 2.9 MILLION followers has been leading the charge to boycott the NFL and their sponsors.
Nation In Distress, commonly referred to as NID has been ruthlessly hammering the NFL ever since Colin Kaepernick sat on the bench during the National anthem.
Now, not only are the NFL’s ratings totally in the tank, with Sunday Night Football having one of the worst nights ever, but teams are having a difficult time filling the stands.
The controversy hit fever pitch after President Trump called out the anti-American players who decided to protest during the National Anthem, pitting the league against his army of supporters. Suffice it to say, it appears as if the league is losing, and the Deplorables are winning.
In New Jersey, a bar in Farmingdale called Woody’s Roadside Tavern plans to hold a fundraiser for veterans and their families, instead of showing NFL games on the bar’s 20 television screens, NJ.com reported.
Rob Johnson, a co-owner of the New Jersey bar, told NJ.com that their anti-NFL event was inspired by a regular customer who served in Vietnam and felt disrespected by NFL players taking a knee during the anthem, Fox News reported.
“While it’ll probably cost us some money, we thought it was more important to stand with our veterans,” Johnson told NJ.com.
In Colorado, a decorated local veteran recently turned down an invitation from the Denver Broncos to be honored during Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots, Fox 31 reported.
And a conservative watchdog group called 2ndVote is asking fans to “stiff-arm the NFL,” the Washington Times reported.
“We’re sending the National Football League, its corporate sponsors, and the television networks a message this Veterans Day weekend!” 2ndVote told the newspaper. “Americans are sick of the disrespectful National Anthem protests that the NFL has not only allowed to continue, but has institutionalized in pregame ceremonies.”
The league and its players union announced Saturday there would be “no change” in league policy regarding the on-field protests, which began last season with a one-man effort by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who said he wanted to draw attention to police mistreatment of African-Americans across the U.S.
So far, the San Francisco 49ers’ Eric Reid and Marquise Goodwin were the only members of the team seen kneeling before their game.
Those 2 bastards are filthy scumbags.
The NFL is in serious trouble, and it’s all because Commissioner Roger Goodell has allowed the league to take a hard turn to the left.
In fact, legendary sports pundit Jason Whitlock, a black man, called out Goodell for taking the league exactly where he wanted it to go in a blistering op-ed for the Wall Street Journal.
It makes sense to blame ineffective leadership. But what if the problem is effective leadership? Football is headed exactly where Mr. Goodell has steered it—to the left. The NFL has long been a combatant in America’s larger culture war. …
By contrast, a year ago Mr. Goodell hired a Democratic political strategist, Joe Lockhart, as the NFL’s executive vice president of communications. Mr. Lockhart, best known as President Clinton’s press secretary for two years, also worked for Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis and John Kerry. Last week the New York Times credited him with crafting the NFL’s message on the anthem controversy. …
Mr. Lockhart is an aggressive media manipulator. The Times reported that several NFL owners were bothered by a snide comment Mr. Lockhart made about Mr. Trump: “Lockhart told reporters that talking about police brutality is ‘what real locker room talk is.’”
And there you have it, folks. For those wondering why Goodell would ever allow his league to be destroyed like this, it all actually goes back to people tied to Obama and his Marxist ideals.
Knowing this, I personally hope the stands become completely empty and the league never recovers.
Talk about betraying your fan base.
Thankfully, Americans seem to be putting these anti-American rejects right in their places.
