Ever since the NFL refused to deal with rogue players insulting the country, things have gotten bad. Very bad. Stadiums are half-empty and ratings continue to plummet. Now word is spreading via Facebook and a website calling on true patriots to take a stand this Veterans Day.
Millions of Americans are outraged that highly-paid, entitled athletes refuse to stand during the National Anthem. These players claim the U.S. is a racist nation–ignoring the fact that they are paid huge salaries to play a game.
The fact that the NFL has sided with these spoiled players has not gone over well with fans. You know, the people that actually give them money! This weekend a movement is spreading among fans to switch off the sport, as a sign of support for our veterans.
A massive Facebook group with hundreds of thousands of followers called for a nationwide boycott of the National Football League on Veterans Day Weekend, urging fans around the country to change the channel “in solidarity” with Americans who respect the national anthem.
“We will be not be watching or listening to NFL games on November 12th in solidarity with veterans around the country, as football players have continued to disrespect the national anthem, the American flag, and everything our nation stands for,” says the group’s official website.
“Until millionaire football players stop protesting the National Anthem of the United States, we’ll be here,” it adds…
The troubled National Football League continued to see its ratings completely collapse this week, with the NFL posting television viewership figures that sent officials and team owners scrambling to stop fans from abandoning the disastrous 2017 season in droves.
Few of us can understand how the heads of the NFL have refused to confront the players refusing to stand. It’s clearly costing the league, TV stations, and numerous sponsors lots of money. Millions of dollars have already been lost. When everything is said and done, the league might lose billions.
The coaches and heads of the league that do nothing are protecting players who are disrespecting the country. They may be entitled to do that, but that doesn’t mean we the people should spend our time and money on a sport that insults our National Anthem.
I won’t be surprised if this weekend’s a bloodbath for the NFL. They need to learn that they cannot tick off millions of Americans and get away with you.
How about you? Will you watch the NFL this Veterans Day? Or will you join many Americans and switch off, in honor of our Armed Forces?
