Trump Slams NFL For Refusing to Make Players Stand for Anthem

425

In an early morning tweet on Wednesday, President Trump criticized the NFL for announcing that they would not introduce a rule requiring players to stand for the national anthem.

“The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem,” Trump wrote. “Total disrespect for our great country!”

The day before, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with owners at their annual conference in New York City. In a subsequent statement, the NFL and the Players Association released a statement saying that they would “work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities.”

But while the NFL considered a rule that would require players to stand for the anthem, the general consensus after the meeting was that such a rule would not be forthcoming.

“Everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military,” the statement said. “In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change.”

Goodell clearly understands what this controversy is doing to the health of the league; in a letter to executives last week, he encouraged teams to move beyond this particular method of protest.

“The current dispute over the national anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country,” Goodell wrote. “Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us.”

The executives and owners know they will have chaos on their hands if they “force” players to stand for the national anthem, but they also know that these protests are costing them enormously in the areas of fan loyalty, TV ratings, ticket sales, and merchandising. Unfortunately for the league, the liberals who support the players and their protests are not, by and large, the kind of people who fill the stadium stands on Sunday afternoon. And ultimately, the fans will have the final say. The players may continue to kneel for the national anthem…but they may eventually do so in a stadium that looks more like a ghost town.

The REAL question is whether they were BORN rednecks, peckerwoods and crackers, or were they IMPROPERLY SOCIALIZED into rednecks, peckerwoods and crackers? In which case, they’re PRODUCTS OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT, and NOT RESPONSIBLE for being rednecks, peckerwoods and crackers.

            While I do not approve of their action,
            I will give my life to insure they can protest in that manner.
            If you are a veteran, you also swore that oath.
            As a Commissioned Officer, my oath is lifetime.

          5. Roger says

            Fans pay to see a football game not protests and first amendment rights do not apply to the workplace! The football field is their workplace, playing football is their job and the owner of their team is their boss and the boss better figure out that all the money paid to the players is provided by the fans! No fans, no money, no football!

          just common decency says that they should stand there is no government rule that says they must stand but when you spit on your fan base it does not bode well for the sport

          1. Annie says

            Maybe the players would get the message when fans no longer purchase tickets, merchandise, and trinkets. It appears they (players) do not understand these are the sources of income to pay the ridiculous salaries for these fools to disrespect the flag and national anthem. When all this hits the pocket books, maybe they will understand. This is not a government rule, but the MONEY will make the RULE!! Lets see how the players learn to live on a smaller salary, not sport cars, no high rise apartment, no fancy restaurants, no designer clothes. They will have to learn to live like 90% of the fans that are paying their salaries. WAIT and SEE how long it will take for these idiots to realize who controls the pocket books.

        4. river says

          Well, if we had our way, someone would choke the living shit outa you so you couldn’s lie, (with your 1st amendment rights, compulsively)…. You give nutcase liberals a bad public image.

          3. Roger says

            When do you think you will be smart enough or have enough money to be president degenerate? You probably aren’t tall enough to shine President Trumps shoes!

            Donald Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!
            Donald Trump has all the solutions! Hillary Clinton never had a clue!
            Donald Trump, the man that didn’t need to be President!
            Donald Trump, the man that America needed to be President!
            Trump-Pence, the dream team of and for the American people!
            Making America safer, stronger and greater than ever before!
            Sixteen Republican challengers couldn’t stop Donald Trump, the Democrats couldn’t stop him, adversaries in his own party couldn’t stop him, the lying liberal media couldn’t stop him, the thug protesters hired by the Democrats to disrupt his rallies couldn’t stop him, crooked Hillary, despite her underhanded cheating and attempt to rig the election couldn’t stop him, so why are so many wasting their time? Donald Trump overcame adversity never before seen in the history of an American Presidential election and no one is going to stop him! I truly believe that Donald Trump will be the GREATEST President that America has ever had! A safer, stronger more prosperous and greater than ever before AMERICA!

            Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS!
            President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! MAGA, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

        At least they did not escalate the situation. As for the middle east, you might want to recall on which president’s watch Bin Laden was eliminated. That is, unless your Alzheimer’s has already kicked in.

        1. Retired says

          You forget who created the middle east problem and it wasn’t the Bushes !!!

        2. river says

          Obama didn’t want to eliminate Bin Laden. In fact, he was located 10 months before the raid while OblabberMouth acquiesced about his political ratings. If it wasn’t for Panetta, who threatened to go public about Bin Laden’s whereabouts, he would still be breathing.
          .
          Claiming that OblabberMouth didn’t escalate the middle east is like saying when the chicken crossed the road and got hit by a truck… at least the truck didn’t pluck the chicken too.
          .
          Obama’s acquiescence clearly fueled the fire… only dummies don’t know it.

          After UBL on the president’s watch he went on to create ISIS, a Jihadi group that Trump is currently decimating.

            You didn’t want the truth about you to get out, did you?

          4. river says

            Clever, Bildo, was that one of those 2nd grade “same to you, but more of it responses”?

      2. Deb says

        The days of shaming this country and us patriots are over. We have a leader that says not acceptable to do this here and abroad. Please do use race like they have done.

    3. Fred Dimmick says

      You rather get nuked by one?

      1. river says

        yes, we would rather that Bildo got nuked. There’s a downside here?

    4. river says

      The commercial welfare of the US economy is precisely Trump’s business… or are you too damned dumb to know it?

    5. mac12sam12 says

      The NFL gets tax dollars making it Trump’s business, Cletus.

    6. river says

      Hay Bildo, ever get the impression the whole world is like a black tuxedo and you are just a brown shoe?

  4. Jim says

    Just think: This person could have become president, and just think about how many more insane ideas she would have going forward. What a dimwit.

    1. chucky001 says

      Don’t be so hard on Bachmann.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      Never had a chance, Jimbo.

  5. chucky001 says

    Quote: “the liberals who support the players and their protests are not, by and
    large, the kind of people who fill the stadium stands on Sunday
    afternoon.” True, because we would rather watch the games in the comfort of our home theatres, instead of spending $$$$ to be crammed into uncomfortable seats and having cheap domestic beer spilt on us by neanderthals that remind us of the attendees at Trump rallies.

    1. river says

      No, you would rather stay home because you would be socially unacceptable wearing your white hot pants, go go boots, pink tube top, and rainbow colored wig at an NFL game.
      .
      (muses).. .The extreme vanity of some of these liberal slobs is staggering.

    2. Joseph Carrilho says

      You must have Alzheimer’s……..

  6. Jere Crouse says

    I have quit watching the NFL because of this issue.

  7. Bill says

    Total disrespect for our country by not standing. NFL games will not be watched at my house. What is this inequality stuff, these people make millions playing football while most people, black and white, work 40-50 hours a week just to make ends meet,,,

    1. Mathew Molk says

      It’s a fact that these dunderheads do NOT represent the majority of the working Americans that pay taxes and happen to be of the negro race. – Let’s not loose sight that American patriots come in all colors.

  8. Barbara Johnson says

    It is very perplexing to see that the NFL has doubled down on letting their players kneel during the national anthem. Protesting in this manner does not change the fact that it is more likely that a black will be killed by another black then a police officer. It has been proven that more whites then blacks have been killed by the police. It really does not matter about race because in the end these people have committed crimes that they have been caught doing and with out the police to apprehend them them our society as a whole would be thrown into chaos. If a police officer is charged with an unlawful shooting they should be punished no matter what color the culprit is.But do not throw the baby out with the bath water because of a few policemen. If the NFL players had to do this job they might respect the fact that it is literally the most dangerous jobs in America.

    1. Donald Johnston says

      Don’t forget. In the last 10 years NFL players have committed over 600 felonies. That’s 60 a year. No wonder they don’t like the police. Oppressed my ass. They’re spoiled with childish behavior. All because they can play a game. Heroes? NOT!

      1. Mathew Molk says

        That’s the ones they got caught for. Put a factor of 5 to 10 to see how many they actually committed. Remember their DWI spokesmen did 24 days for running over and killing a guy trying to get home after work. If it was the other way around the white guy would have been put UNDER the jail. White privilege yurass.

      2. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

        There are no heroes in the sports world. HEROES place their life on the line for others. Military, police, firemen & first responders. No athelete places themselves in harms way. The word HERO is to loosely applied.

  9. R Monty says

    THE PLAYERS THAT ARE DOING THIS, ARE LISTENING TO THE ANARCHISTS THAT WANT NOTHING MORE THAN TEARING OUR COUNTRY APART!! UNTIL OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT GETS RID OF THAT FACTION IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND NATION, WE WILL GET NOTHING BUT CIAOS ON & OFF THE FIELDS!! WE AS FANS HAVE TO SHOW THEM THAT THERE ARE BETTER THINGS TO DO ON SUNDAY THAN PLANT OUR BUTTS IN FRONT OF A TV FOOTBALL GAME

  10. Robert Uda says

    NFL Existential Solution

    Attention all NFL fans, advertisers, team owners, coaches, and players:

    I will tell you why the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, is an ineffective dolt. It is because the NFL team owners hires him and pays his exorbitant salary! He is responsive to their beck-and-call. To retain his job, all he needs to keep happy is over 50% of the team owners. What a political crock!

    On the other hand, President Trump caters to nobody–except the people. That is where he earns his power to get things done–i.e., through We the People.

    Now, the NFL should change the hiring process of the NFL Commissioner to the football fans (just like “We the People”!). An appropriate percentage from each game’s ticket revenues and from the TV commercial income should go into a special fund that pays the NFL Commissioner’s salary.

    That way, if he is responsive to the fans (i.e., We the People), more fans will show up to games, more will watch games on TV, and he would make more money. If he dissatisfies the fans (i.e., We the People), they will stop buying tickets and stop watching football games on TV. The fund goes down, and so does his salary because his salary should only be a certain percentage of the special fund.

    Therefore, his salary goes up and down depending on how he responds to the fans, not the owners, not the coaches, and certainly not the stupid players. That is why POTUS Donald Trump is so very successful in getting things done. President Ronald Reagan did the same thing by working through “We the People.”

    Now, can you see why Roger Goodell is feckless as the NFL Commissioner? He has absolutely no power that comes from the fans. That is where the solution to this existential problem lies with the NFL. So it is written; so let it be done!

    NFL Dead Keep Kicking

    One idiot foolsball player threatened President Trump. That thug should be in prison. Another idiot threatened that he would get out of foolsball if they forced him to stand and show respect for the flag, anthem, nation, vets, wounded warriors, and those killed in action (KIA) heroes. I say good riddance to that idiot and do not let the NFL (No Fans Left) door hit your big butt on your way out the door. Nothing but dolts exists in the NFL, and it starts from the commissioner all the way down to the rich slaves playing a stupid sport—sort of like the gladiators in the coliseums in Julius Caesar’s day.

    1. river says

      Kina like the Gladiators, only they didn’t race bait like petty gang banging players.

    2. elmcqueen3 says

      To those of us football fans who haven’t already boycotted the NFL games…do so on SUNDAY – NOVEMBER 12TH…this is the official BOYCOTT THE NFL day…for the NFL disrespecting everything that once was good for this country…to include our US military service members…our flag…and our national anthem…and to those of us fans that loved to watch football…we football fans loathe politics being played out on the end field…Such antics by a bunch of thugs is not becoming of American sports…This is not what our sports should be about…Political views on any sport field are not wanted…These NFL players claims of inequality in America is completely off the field…These NFL players make more money in one football season than most of us will ever make in a life time…NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell make 44 million dollars a year (that’s $44,000,000.00 a year)…count the digits…what hypocrisy….BOYCOTT THE NFL on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 12TH…Turn off your TV…take your family out to lunch instead…visit friends and or relatives…spend quality time with your family and or loved ones…What ever you do on the 12th do not watch the NFL game…”Let Freedom Ring” throughout the land…GOD BLESS THE USA….Also BOYCOTT FORD MOTOR COMPANY for taking the knee in support of the NFL thugs that Roger Goodell seemingly can’t seem to live without (his multi million dollar pay check)…PS: My Ford F150 is a piece of $hit.

      1. Raymond Kenick says

        agree

      2. Mathew Molk says

        Apple pie, USA, and Chevrolet.

    3. Raymond Kenick says

      i agree

    4. Roger says

      All pro athletes get their pay from the fans regardless of who writes the check! No fans no check! We must boycott the NFL and any pro team that allows their players to kneel in disrespect of the flag, America, the American people and those that fought, bled and died to keep America and all Americans free! We must also boycott advertisers that represent these disrespectful teams!

      I am a life long Pepsi drinker but I will not buy another Pepsi product as long as I live or any other advertisers product that represents any disrespectful team!

      Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS!
      President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! MAGA, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

  11. Donald Johnston says

    They may be kneeling in food lines since they have no other talents and their “education” is suspect at best. The National Felons League is going down. The fans have the last word.

    1. Michael Dennewitz says

      Shiiiittt, 95% of them don’t even know how many red stripes and how many white stripes are on the flag, nor what it represents. All they know how to do, and do well, is make more velcro heads to go on public assistance!!😣

      1. Roger says

        7/6 – red/white!

        Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS!
        President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! MAGA, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          He may become the most brilliant – Thomas Jefferson was…….

        2. Jo Melcher says

          Amen to this 100% correct!

      2. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

        Yep- I will add most Americans don’t know. Also, bho thought there was 57 states. He said he had campaigned in 57 states.

        1. Sickofit says

          😂😂

        2. jaybird says

          I think there are 57 Muslim Countries, Obama forgot who he was talking to.

      3. Richard S. says

        Plus they don’t know what the colors on our flag represent, besides blood and purity. I’ll bet they don’t know what the stars represent on the field of blue. I’ll bet they don’t even know how to use the flag to signal distress. The history of our flag is quite a story in of itself and I always feel so proud when ever I view it. I’m so proud to be an American.

    2. NovelDog says

      Great point Donald.

    3. William Von Huben says

      The sponsors are hurting with fan viewing down, it is only a matter of time when they say enough is enough and they will give the NFL a warning correct the mess or we will walk. Then the NFL will sit the players and take their money away for the games missed. When it hits the pocket books the players will cave or go on welfare. They should go play in Cuba and make if lucky hundred dollars a game.

      1. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

        I am amazed at the number of fans that have no moral standards.

        1. Retired says

          They know more about sport figures than the people on election day .

    4. Sickofit says

      I agree.
      They should not be allowed to do any protesting while on the “clock”. Nobody else can protest while at work!! You want to protest, do it on your own time. Fans need to boycott!!

  12. Ralph Schall says

    i served 26 years in the military not once in my 26 years did i not stand for the national anthem.these nfl players get more money in one year then any military man or woman gets in his whole career.most of the players are forners.

    1. NovelDog says

      And all they do is play ball, something most all of us did as a kid, only they never grew up and now make a living out of it. So they now think they are smarter than all of us. But mocking our law enforcement folks is absolutely stupid. We can live without them (athletes), but not our law enforcement folks. They are our true heroes, not these fake heroes who play games.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      I actually got in a fight in a bar 25 years ago when I stood for the anthem at the start of a televised Indians game and a snotnose punk tried to make fun of me. – He got a hospital day and the police gave me a slap on the back. – The were also Vietnam Veterans. (We tend to stick together)

  13. JC says

    don’t watch or buy NFL things anymore—the stupid players have ruined what was once a good entertainment

  14. Tired... says

    Bye-bye NFL. I once enjoyed the entertainment that you provided but now you have, through poor leadership, become irrelevant. Hello college football and World Cup Soccer!

  15. SouthernPatriot says

    My family since our arrival shortly before the War of 1812, fought in every war (and “conflict”) since, many serving with great distinction and awards, some returning without limbs, and others in boxes, up to and including the present generation. I will always stand for the “presenting of the colors” and the National Anthem.

    Goodell needs a testicular implant. Jerry Jones said if his players knelt during the National Anthem, they would not play. If players have something to protest, with their average $2 million in yearly salary, they can do it on their own time–Tuesday, when they have off, not during my time I tune in to enjoy entertainment. I am not tuning in any longer. I am not purchasing tickets, concessions, or merchandise. I am exercising my God-given rights as guaranteed by our U.S. Constitution not to support the NFL in any way.

  16. C Johns says

    I am done with NFL. As friends and family gathered sundays’ to watch football games, I am absent. May have a change of heart when /if the NFL inflicts deep financial penalties to those “overpaid” players who refuse to stand and respect flag/national anthem.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Change of heart? – These assholes have committed an unforgivable offense and are continuing to do so. If Heinrich Himmler told the SS to stop killing Jews

      and they did so would you have a change of heart about him.

      They made their bed. Let them die in it.

      BTW,,,,I’m a Catholic Slovenian, so don’t try to read and race bullshit into my example.

  17. Joseph R. Davis says

    I see LeeRoy and Daisy Mae are pi**ing and moaning about the NFL, again. What is it with you people, that you don’t (or won’t, or can’t) understand that the rights guaranteed by the Constitution trump the singing and flag-waving? I may not like the protest, but by G-d, I swore for years to uphold the Constitution, and I won’t play the Brown Shirt for some orange-haired, big-mouthed, M-F in the White House, who doesn’t understand the meaning of the Constitution.

    1. river says

      I think 2nd graders understand it better than you…

    2. Mathew Molk says

      I have the constitutional right to condemn the pukes for insulting my country and my flag too,,,,or dose your copy of the constitution say it only applies to ant-American enemies of the USA?

      And folks, We have another bullfighter here that claims to be a veteran.

      1. Joseph R. Davis says

        Well…Sieg Heil, LeeRoy.

  18. James Beckham says

    We will not watch games on TV nor go to games, nor will we support any advertiser of the games. Let them play in empty stadiums. See how long it takes them to decide to honor the flag and all the people who have fought and died. Many of our fathers and grandfathers fought in wars to defend our country and this flag stands for them and our freedom. God bless our America!!

    1. Mathew Molk says

      I don’t care if they ever pretend to honor our flag and our country, Jim. They have shown their true colors and I don’t care how much phony patriotism they come up with. What they did is forever and is a terminal condition.

      And also,,,,,,not just fathers and grandfathers. Our brothers and children too, to say nothing of yours truly.

  19. Michael Dennewitz says

    N F L – NO FRIGGIN LOSS ! 😊

  20. tbrec63387 says

    Personally, I don’t want them to be forced to stand. That’s like forcing your kid to apologize for something but the apology is meaningless because the kid is forced to do it. The damage is done. I’m done with the NFL and there is no going back. Let the crybaby players do what they want. “there are none so blind as those who will not see” If the players, the NFL and the so called “owners” can’t see what’s happen and why it’s happened, then so be it. It’s their loss.

    1. Morton99 says

      You sound confused. They had guts to do what they did – but you walk away. Brave man 🙁

      1. Joseph Carrilho says

        Do you get paid to be stupid? TROLL.

        1. Morton99 says

          Welcome to another conversation. Hang out and you too will learn a little humility.

  21. NovelDog says

    In other words the NFL and other athletes have all condemned our law enforcement, our constitution, and have categorized them as buffoons, creeps, racist, hate mongers, pigs, and cold bloodied murderers. The BLM and the Democratic Party has backed this protest as has our enemies abroad. If our law enforcement folks lose the respect and support of the nation….all is lost. We will crumble and become a lawless society where the strongest most violently oppressive gangs will rule the land. Law officers are already being targeted, and attacked, and deliberately killed for just being a law officer. Now the football players are refusing to stand for our national anthem. They have joined Colin Kaepernick in mocking our law officers, and yet expect us to go to their games, and spend our money supporting those who hate us, and disrespect us. Let the NFL, and all other idiots, be put on notice. If you are in trouble who are you going to call? The men in blue answers tens of thousands of calls every day, and never know when they will turn violent, and yet only a few times have they been in the wrong. This is a stupid movement, and will do more harm than good….and that is a solid cold hard fact!

    1. Raymond Kenick says

      i agree,

    2. Mathew Molk says

      Enemies forign and domestic ???? Enemies are to be destroyed, don’t you know. The only good enemy is a dead enemy.

      Hate a cop? Spit on the flag. – Liberal logic at it’s best,,,,or worst.

    3. Roger says

      The NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and all major sports teams represent a very small percentage of America! We the 90% of people that do not play or even watch sports on TV represent America!

      Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS!
      President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! MAGA, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

      1. Morton99 says

        Really ? I think your utopia of incompetence and pussy grabbing is in for a nasty fall. But dream on; it does not look as if Trump is interested in expanding his base – more that he is accidentally destroying the Republican party.

        1. Roger says

          Look again fool!

          Donald Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!
          Donald Trump has all the solutions! Hillary Clinton never had a clue!
          Donald Trump, the man that didn’t need to be President!
          Donald Trump, the man that America needed to be President!
          Trump-Pence, the dream team of and for the American people!
          Making America safer, stronger and greater than ever before!
          Sixteen Republican challengers couldn’t stop Donald Trump, the Democrats couldn’t stop him, adversaries in his own party couldn’t stop him, the lying liberal media couldn’t stop him, the thug protesters hired by the Democrats to disrupt his rallies couldn’t stop him, crooked Hillary, despite her underhanded cheating and attempt to rig the election couldn’t stop him, so why are so many wasting their time? Donald Trump overcame adversity never before seen in the history of an American Presidential election and no one is going to stop him! I truly believe that Donald Trump will be the GREATEST President that America has ever had! A safer, stronger more prosperous and greater than ever before AMERICA!

          Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS!
          President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! MAGA, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

          1. Morton99 says

            I am glad for you that you adulate him so much – but you haven’t listed a single thing that he could take credit for …. For my part I can see absolutely nothing of value in this vulgar, lying, grandiose pussy grabbing piece of shit – but I stand to be corrected if you know something that is as yet unknown about him ?

            You’re blind…….

          12. Morton99 says

            Nah. You probably need a braille refresher course – you right wingers live in an imaginary bubble. Trump has ruined for good any dreams you had of regressing this nation back to slave days. But I am willing to offer you minimal wages like most of the Republican entrepreneurs.

          13. Nihle65 says

            He is not blind, she99 is a democRAT, uneducated fkn idiot from california.
            MAGA…

          14. Roger says

            He is preventing the idiot in North Korea from doing anything but running his mouth like you do! He turned his commanders loose and they have got Isis on the run 1,000 recently surrendered! The creation of millions of jobs, millions off food stamps and welfare because he cut much of the job killing red tape, illegal border crossings are down, the stock market is breaking records daily and enjoying an increase of five trillion dollar increase and so much, much more, now crawl back under your rock, you have been corrected!

            Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS!
            President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world! MAGA, greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!

          15. Morton99 says

            He is doing nothing of the sort with Kim Un Yong – but making them get angry and nervous that they will be attacked. Re Isis – the campaign that finished this week was running for 2 years before Trump was elected. He had absolutely nothing to do with it. The current employment rate was achieved before his first day in office by Obama.- as is the stock market buoyancy.
            Finally you are a real simpleton for actually believing that BS – yes I know Trump claims he made the sun orbit the earth but you should really know better.

          16. Jo Melcher says

            Roger: You are so correct. Too bad the Democratic party cannot see what a great President he is, they have been brain-washed. Just read the book “The Big Lie”, and they might get their eyes opened, as to what the Democratic party has done in past years to this Country and still doing today. It’s sad, they really do need a new understanding of the Democratic party.

            Your sexual delusion is what defines you. Get out of the closet and behave like a man – not a silly little poof trying to blame others for your preferences.

          16. Nihle65 says

            I’ve figured out what’s wrong with you moron99, I bet your from california??? Land of the faggots, home of the homo. I bet you got you ass beat everyday in school huh? And i bet you still get your ass beat on a daily basis? Sorry for your luck girl. But, i want you to go to you tube and look up (if you know how) and watch some video’s of mark dice and see just how fkn stupid you cali morons really are. you cali snowflakes are a MAJOR embarrassment to the rest Of AMERICA. PRICELESS!!!!!!

          17. Morton99 says

            wrong again, scumbag. 25 years on Wall St and I live in Manhattan next to Central Park. A 10 minute bicycle ride from the home of your beloved accidental president.

          18. Morton99 says

            I wouldn’t hear of it – you can keep her.

          19. Joseph Carrilho says

            Ever heard of the “Dunstall Norton”?
            Dunstall (spelled?) was to Norton what Shelby was to Mustang.

        3. William Love says

          Should be MORON99

            Oh what a witty cretin!

          1. Morton99 says

            Go for it Rudy. We don’t need your vote or the vote of 34 percent of the population. We just need 51 percent and leave you azzholes out in the cold.

          2. AZRocks CP (2012) AZ says

            hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha now that was a funny slam won’t happen but funny

          3. Morton99 says

            It is funny now I think about it – here you are arithmetically challenged and I suppose all you can do is laugh – that hollow laugh when you learn to count properly you may not laugh very loudly.

          4. AZRocks CP (2012) AZ says

            and you came up with arithmetically challenged? that was funny too you are on a role now.

          5. Morton99 says

            You are an easy mark. But enjoy preaching to your choir – none of them can count either – or your faces would be very long.

          6. AZRocks CP (2012) AZ says

            you are too cute and I bet English is not your first language… it would be “preaching to the choir” which means telling someone what they already know. see how that did not work correctly? Just trying to help.

          7. Retired says

            You mean destroying the Country like your Muslim ex, Obozo ????

  22. ray2hill says

    This is a phony issue. I am wheelchair bound after losing a leg in Vietnam so if I do not stand when the national anthem is played I am in the same position as NFL players Trump wraps his lard ass in the flag and wipes it with the Constitution and the suckers that follow him smell his acrid farts and love it.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      I too am a Vietnam COMBAT veteran and sorry pal, but you sure don’t sound a bit like the rest of my brothers. I was a 12A10 Pioneer Combat Engineer in ’67- ’68.

      Not calling you a liar (yet) but just when were you in country and what was YOUR MOS?

      1. Joseph Carrilho says

        I think you busted ray2hill, Brother. I think he is as phoney as they come.

        Ground-pounder, 69-70 – Alpha Co. 2/5 Cav. 1st. Cav. Div. (Airmobile).

  23. Morton99 says

    Evidently the NFL (not surprisingly) respect the Constitution more than the President.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Bullshit. – Nothing in the constitution that says you can’t go into a crowded movie theater and yell “FIRE!” but I wouldn’t recommend you try it,,,,,asshole.

      1. Morton99 says

        That is an incorrect analogy. Yelling fire for fun – in a crowded theater can cause death due to the panic that would ensue. That is the ONLY kind of reason the restricts the First Amendment.

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          One of the many benefits of free speech is,
          it allows dummies like you to show your stupidity.

          1. Morton99 says

            Yup, not fond of right wing fantasies – its such a waste of time – and also some of my buddies are people you think of as uppity niggas.

          2. Joseph Carrilho says

            Watch your mouth, ASSHOLE.

          3. Morton99 says

            I can repeat it if you didn’t quite get it ?

    2. Joseph Carrilho says

      Obummer is no longer the president, idiot.

      1. Morton99 says

        Like you need to remind yourself of that ?

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          Remind your heathen bitch Hitlery………

  24. My country says

    Just like KMart the NFL will eventually be gone .The owners of KMart once said there were not enough Christians to put them out of business .Well the same will happen here .Real Americans will not support these morons who are insulting the very people who pay for them to play . Oh , there will be the young and dumb who will still attend and buy their junk while they are being laughed at by these UN American players . In this case they are supporting criminals . The NFL players are made up of 90% gang members and yes they are black . We should send them all to Cuba ! They would get their justice right then on the field . In Cuba they would put a bullet in the head right there or you would not be heard from again . Russia and China and Cuba will not allow this behavior toward their country . Granted they are socialists but that’s what these morons think they want here .And Bernie is trying to convince millions this is a good thing !

    1. Kurt Hanssen says

      Socialisem is just a nice name for Comunisem, I’ know, I’ came from one of those countrys.

      1. My country says

        I agree ! Just like progressive is a fancy word for socialism and then like you say it’s a nice sounding word for communism in disquise ! And the idiots of America who know no history are so willing to dismiss those like you who can tell them first hand of the horror that brings . My dad was in Germany and served and many of my family members died keeping Hitler from his world domination .And our universities are filled with communist professors who have brainwashed our sons and daughters into believing Hitler was a fine man . And you throw Bernie Sanders a man who has never lived under socialism yet he preaches it to young minds and they believe him . Mainly because they are too lazy and want to be taken care of . As you know they will be taken care of alright .Only what the government allows you to have . I sincerely hope you have found peace in your new home . Best wishes to you on your new life away from socialism.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          Wait a minute….is not everyone equal to the NWO Marxists…..With the exception of the elite like Sanders and Shumer that are more equal then the proletariat, anyway.

          1. My country says

            Well you wait a minute ! We are not all equal .And we would not want to be as a matter of fact. If we were all equal we would be the same from our color to our size and wealth and would all die the same way . What we all have is a choice to be what we are or not . And they made their choice to live on the worst side of communism .As for those who love our freedom we have a choice to fight for it instead of allowing those to inflict their choice upon our innocents . Namely our younger generations who are paying a price because we didn’t fight to keep communism out of their existence.

          2. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

            If we were all equal, we would be drones.

          3. My country says

            Since we are human it would be called living under communism.All the humans will have to die to have drones replace living beings .

        2. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

          Those in power, the rich, & connected will never be affected by socialism, communism, & progressivism. Only the people. Look at Cuba, venenusula, china, & russia. Take note, obumercare does not apply to the legislators. Bho gave them a carve out through EO. Only, the party hacks will benefit. Every one else will be working to support the elite and standing in bread lines for their daily sustenance.

          Wake up America.

          1. My country says

            That’s what slavery under Globalism is .And it is going to be ushered in by those whose ignorance of communism are going to wake up too .If the real patriots fail in our fight for our freedom every tinkerbell and snowflake will suffer by the hands of those they think are great

          2. Morton99 says

            You always have a choice. You can choose to be a right wing complaining corporate slave – or you can rise up off your butt, get an education and be proud of yourself when you get a good job. Globalism is here to stay – not because most of us like it particularly, but because the world is run on capitalism – and capitalism always chooses efficiency as the first consideration for profits, and market expansion as the second..

        3. Kurt Hanssen says

          Thank’s, I’ moved to Florida, was tired of all that snow and cool wether.

  26. tony says

    STOP GOING TO THERE GAMES, STOP WATCHING THERE GAMES ON TV, LET THEM PLAY TO EMPTY STADIUMS, DONT BUY ANY THING THERE SELLING, NO REVENUE NO PAY, IF THEY CANT RESPECT OUR BELOVED AMERICA AND OUR FLAG, TELL THEM TO GO TO HELL !!!!!! US ARMY VETERAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Kurt Hanssen says

    This is just the beginning, American Footbal is dead as we know it, but we still got soccer. Thanks to their fans that they are making $.multy millions, but when they don’t like our country, why shud wee like them. Let’s boycott everything that is assosiated with NFL Sponsors adwertisers, don;t watch them on TV, don’t by Tickets. let them have emthy stadiums and see how much money you save, Lets Cut the Multy Billion $ industree NFL down to their (Knees) No Money No Salary and their players will soon be down on both knees.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Love ya Kurt, but it will never get cold enough down there to have me watching soccer.

      I’m with ya on the Boycott though my friend. ANd I mean a PERMANENT boycott. Shut them down for good.

      1. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

        I agree. Watching soccer is like watching the original pong game.

        Boycott the advertisers and anything nfl.

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          I tried watching some soccer recently……. I lasted about 5 minutes.
          You are absolutely correct – Pong is a very good description.

      2. Kurt Hanssen says

        I’m European, so I’ like soccer, but when it comes to futball, I’m not a fanatic. With you all the way, no more NFL. newer ewer. They made an as of them-self, let them live with their stupidity.

        You sound like Goodell.

          The above is MINE, fuuk Goodell.

  29. Raymond Kenick says

    Standing is already a rule get any NFL rule book teams have to be on field (Pittsburgh) and stand during Anthem, and all the young minds looking up to players, now these same kids will be kneeling, unreal

  30. roberttdunn says

    Gosh, they fear chaos from the players if they make them stand, maybe they should think of the chaos from the fans!

    1. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

      I am waiting for the fans to treat the games like the european soccer fans do. Throwing trash on the field.

  31. Allen says

    I just wish that local funding would stop for this garbage can league. And, I wish that the police would stop providing security for these events. That is what the NFL players want isn’t it. I mean if they hate police why would they want them to be anywhere around. Sorry a$$es. Christmas is coming soon. Figured I would get in my wish list to Santa early.

    1. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

      The military & the Scouts need to quit presenting the Flag. When you pi$$ on the presentation, you pi$$ on the Honor Guard.

  32. rtwoods3 says

    We have all criticized the NFL and rightly so. It is the culture of most of the black race. Three percent of the black race commits 50 percent of the murder and violent crime in this country. It would seem to logical human beings that more of them would be shot by police???? This country has been very very good to the blacks. Literally Billions of tax payer dollars have gone into programs to uplift the “oppressed” blacks they keep talking about. EEO, AA, housing programs, educational programs, health programs, etc.,etc. call your local news and ask why they don’t talk about that. The black race in the US has received more money than any other per capita in this country. Fact check me, I was a grant writer for thirty years. Back to the NFL. We need to do more than belly ache on these posts. We need to make the November 12, Veterans Day weekend football boycott a Huge success. We need to contact our local news media and get it out there. We need to have signs made or even make homemade ones and put them out all over the place. We need to put it on our cars. We need to get on Facebook, Twitter, email everyone we know. If that day is successful, sponsors will drop the NFL like a hot potato. The NFL will lose an enormous amount of money, the players would be play ball to half empty (or more) stadiums. I do not think anyone in the NFL would ever disrespect this country again. We have to change the black culture before they destroy our wonderful country. There has not been a slave in this country for over a century and a half. They need to get over that one. There is not a player’s grandparents grandparent that was a slave. That the blacks are oppressed, as I said literally billions of dollars have been given to the blacks. They are just pushing for more. It is easier than getting up every morning and going to work for forty or fifty years of your life. I had a second job as an adjunct professor at a state university. Every symester I would get a letter telling me I could not give a black less than a C. That is probably why those college educated black football players can not speak correct English when interviewed on TV. We need to get all of the information about the November 12 boycott out, information about how much money the blacks have received in entitlements and all the programs I previously mentioned. We need to shut the door on those crybabies. Black lives do matter, but so do white lives. Political correctness needs to come to an end. When the blacks cry they are oppressed, we need to tell them about ALL the money and programs that have been given to them. Please do not just write a blip to the chior,take action to let the ones that are uninvolved know. That boycott on nov. 12 must be a success or the NFL wins. The people that disrespected our country, our National Anthem, ultimately the men who have fought and given their lives for our freedom. The jackasses that play a freaking game for millions will win. That can not happen!!

    1. Mathew Molk says

      My part time job has been as a professional musician all my life (Not a hobby, but an actual paying job) – I am playing out on the 11th and you can bet I will push the shit out of the boycott on the 12th.

  33. Mathew Molk says

    Trump -2 NFL -0

    Liberal logic – If you are pissed off at the cops in the ghetto. Spit on the flag. and if you do something that doesn’t work and plays right into the hands of your adversary,,,,Pull a “New Coke” stunt that greatly reinforces your opponent’s position.

    The NFL is D-O-N-E. Put a fork in them.

  34. Mt Native says

    Unfortunately they will still get their millions every year so they don’t care. All they care about is making a spectacle of themselves and being in the news more than on just game day. Now where this money is going to come from to continue to pay them I don’t know. All I know is won’t be coming from me or my husband. The nfl and all the players are dead to us. We don’t use most of the products of the sponsors. The only thing I will miss will be the budweiser super bowl commercial although the one last year was not a good one. I guess it is the horses that I will miss seeing as I love horses.

    1. Joseph Carrilho says

      Glad you mentioned the horses, fuuk the commercials……

      1. Mt Native says

        Yup I only watched them to see the horses. Don’t drink and if I did it wouldn’t be budweiser and I don’t drink pepsi products either.

  35. James Langham says

    Show me a law on the books that demands one stand for the anthem or salute the flag.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      I keep it the toe of my #12 Red Wing boots….And yes I have kicked a guy’s ass for not standing.

      Want to meet me for a demonstration of the law, there cupcake?

      1. James Langham says

        So , you think you have a legal right to assault another person, pudding cup?

    2. Joseph Carrilho says

      Common sense, decency, honor, and respect do NOT require laws, numbskull.

      1. Morton99 says

        It is the duty of a patriotic American to stand up for principle and Constitutional values – not the rights of a racist or bigot. Since standing up is conformist (if you would have your way) it is also constitutional to kneel – a right guaranteed by the First Amendment.

        1. Joseph Carrilho says

          Fine, stay on your knees.

          1. Morton99 says

            If its good enough for God, its good enough for the flag. But then it sounds like you are probably an atheist.

      2. James Langham says

        So, what do you say to the millions of Jehovah”s Witnesses who neither stand for the anthem, salute the flag nor pledge allegiance to ANY country?

  36. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

    The military & Police Depts. Need to quit participating in this disgusting events. I would not stand in full dress uniform just to be pi$$ed on by the ingrates. Now the msm has stopped covering the ceremony to insure people don’t see the truth. “Out of sight out of mind” theory. They are also not panning the fans for fear of showing empty seats.

  37. cal3301 says

    They have a rule on record….Here are the NFL’s rules governing the National Anthem, found on pages A62-63 of the NFL Game Operations Manual:

    “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

    During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

  38. Ron says

    Dear Commissioner. Goodell,
    After much deliberation I have developed a solution to the current difficulties facing the National Football League that I believe will placate your employees (players) and that I hope you will implement at your earliest opportunity.
    As we all know, your league is no longer interested in serving as an entertainment source but instead now views itself as a vehicle for social justice activism and political correctness. In keeping with this change in strategic messaging, the following changes should be adopted:
    The NFL draft should be eliminated. The “selection” of players by team owners is akin to the slave markets of the antebellum era, and at any rate should be rejected as part of the “plantation mentality” that must be stamped out if the league is to attain its paramount goal of social justice for its oppressed players. Since the concepts of merit-based promotion and advancement through hard work are now considered racist propaganda, I propose that the annual draft be replaced with a lottery selection system. Since the stated criticism of your league is that the NFL does not reflect the “true face of our nation,” entrance into the lottery will be according to membership in a specific demographic group based on that group’s percentage of the nation’s population in the most recent census (For example, U.S. Census data as of 1 July 2016 places our country’s racial makeup as 61.3% White, 13.3% African-American, 17.6% Hispanic, 5.7% Asian, and 1.3% Native American. The same census described the population as 49.2% male, 50.8% female. In addition, a recent Gallup poll stated that the percentage of the population that listed itself as LGBT is 3.8%). Every team’s active player roster must adhere to these percentages. If a player is injured, traded, or retires, that player MUST be replaced by a player from the identical background category. NFL active rosters will be expanded to 1,000 players each so that more participants will be given the opportunity to play. Also, since competition leads to hurt feelings, participation in the selection lottery should be open to all those who desire inclusion. Since there are numerous other population sub-categories (i.e: religious affiliation, disabilities, left-handed/right-handed/ ambidextrous), I further propose the establishment of a new NFL Office of Statistical Analysis and Demographics (SAD) to insure that every team is in compliance with these directives. The SAD objective will be to leave no stone unturned in creating as fair and equitable a workplace as possible for the oppressed workers (players). The National Football League must also take immediate steps to bring the coaching staffs, front office personnel, and ownership into compliance with this new doctrine as well. Furthermore, in keeping with equal pay doctrine, every player will receive the same wage and benefits package, obviating the need for individual player agents and contract negotiations.
    Mr. Goodell, I look forward to hearing from you regarding my suggested solution to your league’s difficulties. I am sure that my suggestions will go a long way towards satisfying your players’ demands for immediate action. I am confident that any disappointment felt by current players displaced under the new rules as well as for any decline in the athletic ability of the players and overall quality of play in the NFL will be more than assuaged by the deep sense of satisfaction you and your personnel will derive from being on the cutting edge of the great leap forward towards the achievement of social justice and true equality in the United States of America. I know that you will undoubtedly offer me a very generous consulting fee for my services, however, since I am independently wealthy, I ask that you divide my fee equally between the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Vietnam Veterans of America, Disabled American Veterans, Blinded Veterans of America, Paralyzed Veterans of America, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and the Wounded Warrior Project. I believe that this disbursement will be in keeping with your league’s oft demonstrated high level of respect for our country’s uniformed personnel.
    You’re welcome, Mr. Goodell.

  39. Ron says

    A TOTAL nationwide boycott of the NFL will take place during Veterans Day Weekend (9-13 November). Spread the word…EMPTY stadiums, 0% TV ratings. If we grab them by their (wallets), their hearts and minds will surely follow!

  40. daveveselenak says

    Where do I start: firstly, all of this faux, signifying protesting would have never happened in the old , God fearing United States; secondly, the God fearing would do the right thing and follow through on the following idea that is mentioned in the following article but I don’t expect that to happen. The sheeple have been too dumbed-down, drugged-up, PC bullied, brain-washed and soft and hedonistic to do the righteous thing and BOYCOTT these un-American, crybaby, multi-millionaire, tattooed, drug taking, women beating, unthankful thugs on Veterans Day weekend – they must have their crack even as it breaks the country’s back!

    Most of the sheeple don’t or won’t understand that our enemies, the former democ-rats and now the Communist Party USA and their cheerleader and pied piper, the former “Dick-taker-N-Thief” and Muslim-Marxist jihadist Obaa-baa-maa and his sugar-daddy G. Soros and other NWO-elitist Godless, Satan worshipping, power-mad ghouls are orchestrating the total destruction of what little is left of this once great God fearing ( now God smearing ) Republic!

    These clever, diabolical reprobates have the Devil incarnate, Bath-house Barry, his commie minions; his brethren Muslim terrorists; the “Re-PUNK-lican” leader(less)ship and treacherous Manchurian candidate and Uncle Fester twin “McShame”, Ly’n Ryan and “Bitch McGobbler”; suicidal, fascist leftists ( far from the tolerating liberals of past ) ; the Marxist-Jesuit False Prophet “Dope Francis”, the first and only pope that the Godless Left loves; a compliant nation of sheeple and last but not least, the Devil himself all aligning and thus defining what this nation and the world will become: a Godless, totalitarian world – we are just a breath away from their achieving goal!

    I can only pray that the following protest for Light rather than Darkness will happen come the weekend of November 12th – it’s your asses that you’ll be saving so I urge all of you rather than sitting on them find something else to do and move them!

    An open letter to the NFL players,

    *You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle.
    You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks.. Your mother was the leader
    of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food
    on your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were
    mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225
    lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your
    best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of
    going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for
    minimum wage. You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every
    weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and
    boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the
    red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s
    College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State
    University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You
    went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.*

    *You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the
    training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on
    by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You
    attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted
    weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top
    football players in the country. Your best friend was assigned to the
    101st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq
    once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19
    year old soldiers who grew up just like he did.. He shed his blood in
    Afghanistan and watched young American’s give their lives, limbs, and
    innocence for the USA.*

    *You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. You hired an agent
    and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your
    agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money
    possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single
    down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army
    for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000
    per year.*

    *You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in
    the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers.
    You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to
    sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as
    the
    temperature reaches 120 degrees.*

    *On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer
    and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference
    between **Sunday** and any other day of the week. There are no adoring
    fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now
    and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the
    rear” to
    rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the
    National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and
    salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the
    United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of
    defending his great country.*

    *To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch
    you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can
    cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you
    play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the
    absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to
    boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic
    violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth.. We should be ashamed for
    putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally
    right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our
    country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are
    living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I am done
    with NFL football and encourage all like minded Americans to boycott the
    NFL as well.*

    *National boycott of the NFL for **Sunday November 12th**, Veterans Day
    Weekend. Boycott all football telecast, all fans, all ticket holders, stay
    away from attending any games, let them play to empty stadiums. Pass this
    post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom
    come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.. *

  41. John J. Mulhall says

    I happen to like the new bumper sticker: “NFL = No Fans Left”. They lost me last year when the forty-whiner started disrespecting this great nation and the people who make it safe for them to play football.
    871 felons playing on the teams, averaging $2.44 M a year. Find a better country and move there guys.

    1. Morton99 says

      In fact the controversy has actually boosted ticket sales.

      1. John J. Mulhall says

        I find that difficult to believe since the statistics are saying the viewership is down double digits (if memory serves, Thursday Night game was down 16.4% from previous week… which was down from previous week & year)

  42. Larry Brule says

    GOODELL HAS TO GO. MOST COMMIE LIB LEADER THE NFL HAS EVER HAD!

  43. Jim Colon says

    Why in the world would the owners have chaos on their hands if they forced the players to stand? As the owners, they are the ones who make the rules and the players, who are the EMPLOYEES, do as they are told. If the players don’t like the rules they can leave the team and find another line of work where they can do as they choose and, by the way, good luck with that.

    I’ve employed thousands of people in the public sector and if any of them chose to take a political stand with our customers they would have found themselves in the unemployment line. Those thankless players who are paid millions of dollars to play a stupid game and the spineless owners, who don’t have the courage to keep them in line, deserve the backlash and loss of revenue that will surely follow. After all, without the fans these teams are absolutely NOTHING and they are about to find that out the hard way.

    1. hangem'high says

      It’s about more than money here; if the NFL pedophilia tenancies were exposed all the billionaires owners would be going to jail that’s why they walk Soros tight rope! Football is about disciplined doesn’t look like they’re much disciplined, but slaves to the N.O.W!

  44. Wayne Thorson says

    I can’t believe all the people on this blog don’t know what the flag stands for. It stands for freedom of expression. Those players are asking us to take a look at police brutality taking the life of innocent people. I would bet if they were kneeling to bring attention to cutting funds to family planning they would not object.

    1. hangem'high says

      You need to go back to school, or move to a different country that’s all I can say??
      Colon KapNoDick himself said it, she, he, whatever the tweed is??? Said it was about the flag while BLM and ANTIFA put out a cry to execute policemen! Antifa and BLM declared war to start on the USA November 4th. I believe they have already started their offensive with the LV shooting and the cali -firers!

      1. Wayne Thorson says

        Mr. Hange’mhigh, You can’t give me a name of one football player that took the knee that will say he did it to disgrace the flag. That is just an opinion of a weak minded far far right person like your self.

    I have deleted the NFL from my menu. I’ve gone to NASCAR at the same time. A band playing the national anthem, everyone standing, most singing, Flyover by the air force jets, great way to spend an afternoon. And, the ladies also participate in this, not just watching.

  46. Sapperboy says

    The NFL is pandering to the rich, mental midgets and shamelessly kisses their asses. I’m finished with any NFL team who continues to let their players kneel. To think this was started by a simpleton out of hate for the police.

    1. Morton99 says

      Really ? Their players are the most valuable asset they have.

      1. Sapperboy says

        Really. Character and love of country used to come before money. Their assets are going to be their undoing. lol.

        1. Morton99 says

          Really ? If Its good enough to kneel before God, and good enough for the First Amendment, then its good enough for the flag.

          1. Sapperboy says

            LOL, comprehension isn’t one of your strong points.

          2. Morton99 says

  51. MIKE6080 says

    dont go to the games and dont listen or watch them . keep a current list of their sponsors the nfl can go to hell

  52. Ole ball coach says

    Agree with retired. Spent 10 years working in the NFL and many of the players would still be in the ghetto had it not been for football. A way out of the “hood” and wealthy–not oppressed. I don’t see many of these players putting their money where their knee is and helping to rectify the problems. They should honor those that have fought and allowed for our freedoms and liberty.

  53. JC says

    You think the stands are empty now—just wait a few weeks and you will be shocked at the revenue this sport will lose and they have done it to themselves

  54. TAM44 says

    Owner are saying to us all, screw you American citizens, we will kneel with our employees to show them our devotion. Please buy our stuff and our tickets and watch on TV and just shut up and obey us. BOYCOTT THE NFL. Send them a message that says, remember we once fans don’t needs your disrespectful crap, but you’ll find out you need us you ungrateful scumbags.

  55. Joe Veteran says

    Give him the pink slip. There are plenty of younger, and better America Loving Players waiting for a chance to play in the NFL.

  56. whoda guy says

    Total disrespect to our nation and spirit. Shame on these overpaid egotistic spoilers. They further divide the spirit of our nation with more racist accusations. They act like muslim extremists, inciting anger and hostility.

    The big advertisers should pull back on their NFL ad budgets. Auto makers, beer brewers, Insurance Co’s, etc. . .could put an end to this nonsense post haste.

    This behavior is not acceptable. If they wanted to make a real impact they could protest by not playing. Sit the game out, take a pay loss and show us how wrong profiling is. Even better, stand for the anthem and encourage young people to become productive citizens.

    A policeman in Chicago said, “Let us do our job and we could halve the violence here overnight.”

    Why wait till the super bowl? Do something now. I have not watched a game in two-weeks now. If they don’t stand, I don’t watch and go out instead.

  57. Henry Gregg Nash says

    The Commissioner and the NFL are only themselves. The Fans are turning their backs on them It won’t be long before the stadiums will be like ghost towns. What a thought!

    People fought and died for the right to protest, that’s fine. Just don’t burn the flag that let’s you protest. That pisses me off.

  59. Dave Fischer says

    President Trump slams the NFL……he is RIGHT to do so, that’s his right to complain….they are ungrateful, unpatriotic, and disrespectful to all americans….so the hell with the NFL and their team owners who obviously have their heads up their ass………do not support them, do not attend their games, do not watch their games, do not support their advertisers, and in the end, we should all, disrespect them in return, do not buy their team merchandise…send them a message……..take your team, your players, and SHOVE IT…..

    1. just me says

      I’m not wreaking my Sundays cause Trump don’t like the right to protest. I work hard all week and I’m going to relax and watch the game.

  61. Randy Nolen says

    Sorry, but the Oresident is wrong. The flag stands for the right of the players to protest. It also stands for the right of the fans not to tune in or attend, and the right of the owners not to keep players on the field or on the team if they are hurting the bottom line. And it stands for the right of our President to speak his mind, even if you don’t agree with him.

  62. Time says

    Real Americans with a ounce of Patriotism , are done with the NFL . They could shut it down tomorrow and let all those idiots hit the unemployment line ( while going bankrupt ) and it would be great day for America . Fact is if they closed up the doors on the stadiums ( SAVING AMERICAN’S THEIR TAX DOLLARS IN NFL SUBSIDIES ) it would be just another step toward MAGA

  63. Intelligal says

    TRUMP is always RIGHT! Period! Americans stand United on this issue of DISRESPECT OF AMERICA-BOYCOTT NFL continues and will continue-NFL THUG S need to learn RESPECT-This is not about their cause-this is about DISRESPECTING AMERICA AND RACISM AND EVIL! Period!

  64. niknar says

    Isn’t playing the national anthem a sign by the NFL & other major league sports of their reverence for their country? I don’t really understand all this fuss, but Trump is sure milking it for all that it’s worth. It helps divert attention away from the many crises we face.

    1. Retired says

      The CRISES we face today were created by the last 3 Presidents and Trump is trying to clean up the mess which will take decades .

      1. niknar says

        It took a long time for Clinton to clean up the financial mess that Reagan/Bush left him, but he got the budget to surpluses for his successor, Bush/Cheney who immediately turned that surplus into record deficits, gave us 2 recessions, including a near depression, which Obama had to spend a good deal of his time energy getting us out of, leaving his successor, Trump, a robust economy, which is still humming along. However, our other crises: environmental, constitutional, divisional, educational, keep getting neglected by all, & the current one is intent on leading us to oblivion.

        1. Retired says

          You are lost on Bill Clinton , he slept for 8 years instead of heading off the middle east just like Obama did .You forget all 3 were UN Puppets and Bill with GW were at the Bilderberg secret meeting the year before they got elected . Hillary did not go because of conflict with another important meeting .It was either Campaign or the market boys meting .

          1. niknar says

            Oh, internationally Clinton was asleep, no argument there. A lot of things were brewing in the Muslim world during Clinton’s administration & Clinton basically ignored it.

            On the other hand, Obama was given 2 long, serious wars, one which should’ve been over with in short order (& yet we’re still mired in it), & the other we should never have started in the first place. He tried to get us out of both, but that’s easier said than done, & many of the generals wanted him to stay. Neither war has had a positive result, but it’s very possible nothing good could’ve come of them by the time Obama took charge. The bulk of the fault lies with Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld who dropped the ball on Afghanistan, & went into Iraq on false pretenses & unprepared for the aftermath/fallout. I will say that Obama badly handled Syria in any case, & the conclusion of the invasion of Libya (which started out on the right foot) was deplorable.

            It can be said conclusively that getting involved in wars where we have no business being in the first place, or for which we’re not prepared for the aftermath (no exit strategy) is sheer folly & a huge reason for our sharp decline in international standing.over the past several decades.

          2. Retired says

            You have to remember the 2 main reasons for our involvement in the Middle East = Israel and Oil . Remember the 70s and the gas lines . Oil is connected to the world Stock market . Probably should not have been in Korea and Nam either . One other big problem is Congress telling the Military how to run a military action .

          3. niknar says

            I was talking about Clinton in regards to the economy & federal deficits, where he did a good job. As I mentioned, other matters were largely neglected, & though I didn’t specify it (& I should have, because it’s important), international affairs were among the neglected areas, especially for Clinton (Bush didn’t neglect them; he just took the wrong, reckless course of action)

          4. Retired says

            I don’t know that Clinton was that great , as in my area many thousands lost jobs and benefits . Funny you mention Bush , no one had a problem with him getting along wit Blair and Putin . I think Cheney ran the country more than Bush . Hey it is alright to disagree as in the end we are not that far apart .

  65. bob says

    NFL (national felons league) damn those anti American bastards. Leave American now!!!! Please. They show total disrespect to our flag, anthem, and fallen heros. Boycott anything NFL, we’ve got to hit the arrogant bastards where it hurts. Money is the only thing that they understand, they don’t give a damn about America. As far as social injustice, when 13% of the population committs 67% of all crimes Kaepernick needs to protest criminal activity among people of his race!!!!!

  67. Bob Mallon says

    Let us all stay home on Veterans Day and turn off the TV and not watch one NFL football game. If they don’t stop kneeling we should do it once a month until they do honor the flag and country

  68. Dave Fischer says

    You have every right to watch the game and do whatever you want…..just remember, you are watching a bunch of unpatriotic fucken scumbags, but, if you want to watch these fuckers, its your choice…..

    Goodell stated in his message as a result of their meeting, “Everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military,” the statement said. “In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit tothe hard work required for positive change.” Who the hell does he think he’s fooling? Apparently he thinks us patriots are a bunch of dummies and will swallow his lie, hook line and sinker. Kneeling during our National Anthem is not how you display tremendous respect goofball Goodell, you show respect by standing and placing your right hand over your heart. You,the NFL and those ungrateful players are going down and us patriots will see to it. Adios MF.

  71. Greg Hernandez says

    Gee how come the darned biased press did not come to my house and interview me when I took a knee and removed the NFL from my TV ? How come they don’t ask me about the NFL sponsors I will not Buy from ? Or the team jersey’s I no longer wear ? How come they haven’t spoken to so many of my friends who now watch College football instead of the National Felons League ?
    The press is crying about the right to protest . All well and good. How about the right to not pay attention to their protest by not allowing them into my home ? Last Sunday spent the day with a bunch of friends and no TV. It was great !

    I, along with Millions more, have pledged our lives to our country, Constitution and this flag so people today can debate with the freedoms we were, and are, still willing to die for. Watch this clip https://www.facebook.com/raiderfit/videos/1699621613390306/
    . When the protestor disparages what we pledge and honor as a symbol of our devoted lives, I really do not care what their cause or protest is about.
    . If you must protest, (And many of us may wish to join you), find a time or forum that does not besmirch what we remain willing to die for in defense for our country freedom.
    . Until then I only see these protestors as over paid, disrespectful cry-babies who only care about their own wealth, power, fame, luxury and instant gratification of every lust and desire. I do not see any making an individual effort or sacrifice to stand and debate as a man with a true cause. They whimper and hide behind mouthpieces that other’s pay for. I suggest they take their sport and move to another country that endorses their feelings and let them be their benefactors.
    . As a taxpayer, I feel abused that we paid for these stadiums we thought were to honor our nations with individuals we could have our citizens respect and emulate. Nothing is now further from that dream and goal until they apologize and prove your worth of our respect.
    . Owners must decide … better pray and decide wisely.

    You said that the NFL and Players Assoc. like and respect the Flag, Anthem, and Military; and yet many neel to show disrespect. It appears that way too many rich owners do not have the guts or balls to force standing or not playing. Jerry Jones has both, but only one of 32 is not near enough. You have til the end of this season, then we will not respect you by turning off your games, not attending, and not buying merchandise. We will also demand that you sponsers stop funding or loose millions also.

  86. susmart3 says

    Trump hates the NFL because he was denied ownership of a club. And Americans do not need to be told how to act- we need a President to actual *do* things and not just go off on tangents.

    The fans need to take more serious action. The NATIONAL FOLLOWERS LEAGUE should be driven out of business, it is a dumping ground for overpaid criminals, dog murders and woman beating pussies. Step one should be to revoke their tax exempt status!

  93. ReaperHD says

    Another weekend and it’s getting easier to say f%^k the nfl and their Anti-American niggro knuckle draggers.

  94. ernldo says

    NFL? Yes, now I remember, I used to watch the Numb Felon League….NEVER again. Let the leftist dullards support you poor oppressed millionaires…..

    I think all this taking jabs at each other and the NFL will get the cause nowhere. We need to make sure the NFL boycott does well on Veterans Day weekend, November 12, no one should watch NFL football on TV or go to a game at a stadium. Do you realize what that would do to the NFL? It would completely take away all of their power to be big shots ever again. Even if we can get a third of the people not to watch or go to a game. First when NFL players looked up and saw half empty stadiums even their dumb asses can understand that. Then when the TV ratings come in the owners Goodell AND the sponsors can understand that!

  97. Eric Pearson says

    You Trump supporters don’t get it. You don’t get America and you don’t get the Constitution. The greatest disrespect for our country, the worst possible scenario I can imagine, is currently sitting in the Oval Office. If that germ is what you envisioned as a president, you are guilty of treason.

  98. Darren Rusty says

    NFL is boycotted. And we’re done.

  99. Deplorable Lanie says

    NoFansLeft The NFL is no longer welcome at my house! That includes jerseys and hats and memorabilia and anything else having to do with the NFL! Sponsors be warned that continued affiliation with the NFL is no longer tolerated and could be dangerous to your bottom line. Do the smart thing and drop the NFL before it is too late.

    NFL & PATRIOTISM, what’s it all about?

    Before a preseason game in 2016, NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down, as opposed to the tradition of standing, during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

    During a post-game interview, he explained his position stating, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

    In the 49ers’ final 2016 preseason game on September 1, 2016, Kaepernick opted to kneel during the U.S. national anthem rather than sit as he did in their previous games.

    The above represents the provenance of our current situation which appears to be the cause as to why some appear to reflect disrespect for our flag and the singing of our national anthem.

    Anyone who believes this or any nation is an example of perfection is incredibly confused.

    Mr. Kaepernick was not and is not the real cause of our current situation.

    The problem appears to be due to the irresponsibility of the general manager of the San Francisco 49ers.

    A football stadium is a place of work for football players and staff. As such, management establishes rules and protocols.

    When Mr. Kaepernick first sat, the general manager should have established that all will show respect for the flag and the national anthem.

    The 1st Amendment does not apply to the workplace.

    The blame, for this ridiculousness, stupidity, and divisiveness, must be shared by the ownership of the 49ers and by Mr. Roger Goodell, the Commissioner of the NFL,

    The media, especially CNN, with MSNBC a close second, has exacerbated this insanity by promoting racism as the major factor. Don Lemon of CNN said that “taking a knee is constitutionally protected”.

    The producers and the legal department should have known that is an incorrect statement and apparently meant to inflame this phenomenon.

    An extremely serious question should be asked; why did CNN’s legal department allow that statement?

    The media is demonstrating that yellow journalism is an ugly tool that they will not hesitate to use.

    Fair minded people of all ilks must be demonstrably outraged.

    A rational solution to mitigate the damage done would be that Mr. Goodell and the ownership of the 49ers issue a joint statement apologizing to the nation for massively mishandling this matter.

    This mishandling by the 49ers and the NFL leadership appears to be caused by a combination of ignorance and stupidity which can be reversed by a sincere mea culpa, whereas certain media cannot utilize that path due to their apparent agenda, bias, and vicious premeditated intentions.

    Next time, I will offer greater clarity, i.e., what I really think.

    The FCC should be admonished to review this matter with great urgency, diligence, and sincerity.

    Trump is a big twit. Hopefully that rodent on his head will show its disapproval by standing up when it urinates.

    You know, I am tired of these NFL Cry Babies! I hope the Fans turn away from the sport and spend more time with their families. Maybe, just maybe, the cry babies will see the error of their ways! I, for one, will not tune my TV to watch FOOTBALL!

    Anyone with common sense knows what’s happening with the NFL is being corregrafed by
    The Democrats/Black lives matter to further divide our nation. No American should tolerate or
    Support these activities ( Sorros Driven). The fact that over 70% of the NFL is now black speaks loudly about These players true allegiance. Respecting our Flag and supporting our national Anthem is a main stay in keeping our Nation United. Last time the Democrats were dividing our nation, Lincoln had to declare martial law, arrest thousands of Democratic politicians, and shut down over 300+ Democratic newspapers. It’s time for Trump and Sessions to shut these actions down before it gets out of hand—Enough! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/401fbad249efb5fefe5420430034cbe9f58048702d699771f3e45daff8388e77.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/44f84322bc126eb94e9aac7be8c0cf5c6240402c93596c03da8066ab6e5c3922.jpg

    Goodell and the owners are not the leaders of the NFL it is the protesters who are the leaders. What a joke and a rotten one at that.

  106. donna says

    It is their right to free speech not to stand but is is our right to fire them and let them see how the other half lives on $20 to $30 thousand a year instead of $1 million — I have a feeling they would starve to death. Let them serve out country on foreign soil getting shot at daily and having to watch every step to avoid being blown to particles and sent home on ice. It seems odd to me that I have never had any one except a blackor brown skinned person talk about being disrespected, maybe they should do something to be respected for.

  107. ReaperHD says

    Screw the nfl and didn’t miss watching games this past weekend. Haven’t watch nor bought anything Cowboys since the first week.

  108. John McClain says

    We once were a “nation of principled citizens, proud to be the ‘sovereigns’, the selectors of our government, the last word over ‘the rule of law’, as passed by congress. In 1973, when I was making fifty cents over minimum wage, the NFL went on strike, fifty, sixty grand a year wasn’t enough for the best, and you can see how a measly forty or fifty grand would be insulting.
    I watched my last NFL game that year, right before the decision, drawn out, and finalized, with the strike. I’ve worked for wages since I was about six, I’m dyslexic, and failed all the way through graduating high school, but knew from before entering school, I would have to find my own way to ever have a good job, having took till third or fourth grade to have a functional written alphabet, even though I sang ‘the alphabet song” from before two, on.
    I watched a couple games in my Father in Law’s last months of life, as he was dying from the effects of agent orange, Vietnam, and thirty years of oozing shrapnel out of infected whole back side of skin, from a mortar ambush, which provided his third purple heart, but didn’t put him out of the Corps.
    I watched those with no concern of teams, players, just enjoying Bob’s company, and providing him with a Jarhead to confide in, in his last weeks of life. I’m sixty now, the NFL has been meaningless my whole adult life, but I used to go to Soldier Field in Chicago, to watch the Bears play, before they ruined the game by greed.
    Perhaps if Kapernick knew just how unvalued he was by a whole generation of former fans, fans who didn’t know his name before his shenanigans, he might understand who he once tried to work for, while insulting them.
    Semper Fidelis,

    Memo to Mr. Roger Goodell, Commissioner, National Football League

    Dear Commissioner Goodell,
    After much deliberation I have developed a solution to the current difficulties facing the National Football League that I believe will placate your employees (players) and that I hope you will implement at your earliest opportunity.
    As we all know, your league is no longer interested in serving as an entertainment source but instead now views itself as a vehicle for social justice activism and political correctness. In keeping with this change in strategic messaging, the following changes should be adopted:
    The NFL draft should be eliminated. The “selection” of players by team owners is akin to the slave markets of the antebellum era, and at any rate should be rejected as part of the “plantation mentality” that must be stamped out if the league is to attain its paramount goal of social justice for its oppressed players. Since the concepts of merit-based promotion and advancement through hard work are now considered racist propaganda, I propose that the annual draft be replaced with a lottery selection system. Since the stated criticism of your league is that the NFL does not reflect the “true face of our nation,” entrance into the lottery will be according to membership in a specific demographic group based on that group’s percentage of the nation’s population in the most recent census (For example, U.S. Census data as of 1 July 2016 places our country’s racial makeup as 61.3% White, 13.3% African-American, 17.6% Hispanic, 5.7% Asian, and 1.3% Native American. The same census described the population as 49.2% male, 50.8% female. In addition, a recent Gallup poll stated that the percentage of the population that identified itself as LGBT is 3.8%). Every team’s active player roster must adhere to these percentages. If a player is injured, traded, or retires, that player MUST be replaced by a player from the identical background category. NFL active rosters will be expanded to 1,000 players each so that more participants will be given the opportunity to play. Also, since competition leads to hurt feelings, participation in the selection lottery should be open to all those who desire inclusion. Since there are numerous other population sub-categories (i.e: religious affiliation, disabilities, left-handed/right-handed/ ambidextrous), I further propose the establishment of a new NFL Office of Statistical Analysis and Demographics (SAD) to insure that every team is in compliance with these directives. The SAD objective will be to leave no stone unturned in creating as fair and equitable a workplace as possible for the oppressed workers (players). The National Football League must also take immediate steps to bring the coaching staffs, front office personnel, and ownership into compliance with this new doctrine as well. Furthermore, in keeping with equal pay doctrine, every player will receive the same wage and benefits package, obviating the need for individual player agents and contract negotiations.
    Mr. Goodell, I look forward to hearing from you regarding my suggested solution to your league’s difficulties. I am sure that my suggestions will go a long way towards satisfying your players’ demands for immediate action. I am confident that any disappointment felt by current players displaced under the new rules as well as for any decline in the athletic ability of the players and overall quality of play in the NFL will be more than assuaged by the deep sense of satisfaction you and your personnel will derive from being on the cutting edge of the great leap forward towards the achievement of social justice and true equality in the United States of America. I know that you will undoubtedly offer me a very generous consulting fee for my services, however, since I am independently wealthy, I ask that you divide my fee equally between the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Vietnam Veterans of America, Disabled American Veterans, Blinded Veterans of America, Paralyzed Veterans of America, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and the Wounded Warrior Project. I believe that this disbursement will be in keeping with your league’s oft demonstrated high level of respect for our country’s uniformed personnel.
    You’re welcome, Mr. Goodell.

  110. Ron says

    A TOTAL nationwide boycott of the NFL will take place during Veterans Day Weekend (9-13 November). Spread the word…EMPTY stadiums, 0% TV ratings. If we grab them by their (wallets), their hearts and minds will surely follow!

  111. Ralph Schall says

    i guess forners do not knowhow to treat the flag..

  112. Jim Hays says

    Did the NFL have games Sunday?. I was enthralled all afternoon by NASCAR. Beautiful, pregame ceremony, National anthem, all standing, singing. Showed lots of love for our country. Everything, positive. So much more exciting than watching a bunch of overweight. Muscle bound players, kneeling and sitting for the national anthem. NFL!……..ADIOS.!

  113. lv4921391 says

    NFL = not for long, if the owners do not act like owners….it’s their name on the pay check
    and once a person “clocks in” they are on the clock…
    so they need to fire the sob’s that do not stand at attention…

  114. Richard S. says

    Goodell says NFL community has tremendous respect for our country and flag. If that is correct, you show that respect by standing and placing your right hand over your heart, face the flag and or music and stand still until it is finished. Nothing complicated especially for supposedly college educated individuals. Even first graders in school know how it’s done, now re-educate the owners and players.

  115. Anaprim says

    Much better spending my time now then watching NFL football games. Can’t watch effeminate players anymore. They should work more to train brains, not only muscles.

  116. Patron 26 says

    I have a couple of questions. Is it accurate that the NFL organization is given a LARGE amount of money from our tax payments for what ever they want? The next question is this, Do they pay any Taxes to our Government, or is it normal citizens paying all taxes and the NFL keeps all their money? The NFL can afford to pay the so called players a million dollars, but normal working people have to pay their TAXS!! I bought season tickets for my family, but after watching the so called “PLAYERS” backstab the citizens, I WILL NEVER PURCHASE TICKETS AGAIN!
