The NFL will pay a price for disrespecting the country that made them rich.
Disrespecting our flag and our anthem is not the way to protest nor the place to protest! We The People are pissed at the disrespect to our military and our country! If the NFL or owners had a backbone they could stop this insanity in its tracks by just a few rules.
Whether NFL players decide to kneel or stand for the national anthem, telling patriotic fans who disagree with the protests not to come to the games seems like a bad idea.
According to The Daily Caller:
The Tennessee Titans were one of three NFL teams that remained in the locker room when the national anthem was played ahead of their game on Sunday. After receiving backlash from their fans about the Titans decision to stay in the locker room on Sunday, several players are telling fans to stop coming to games.
“First off, I’m going to say this: We’re not disrespecting the military, the men, and women that serve in the Army. That’s not what it’s all about,” Titans tight end Delanie Walker told The Tennessean. “I support the troops. This is not about that. It’s about equal rights, and that’s all everyone is trying to show, is that we all care about each other.”
“And the fans that don’t want to come to the game? I mean, OK. Bye. I mean, if you feel that’s something, we’re disrespecting you, don’t come to the game. You don’t have to. No one’s telling you to come to the game. It’s your freedom of choice to do that.”
Titans cornerback Logan Ryan also told patriotic Titans fans to stop watching if they don’t want to see players disrespecting their country every Sunday.
“That’s their choice. That’s the beauty of this country,” Ryan said. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and everyone’s opinion is equal. So right, wrong or indifferent, that’s the beauty of this country,” he explained. “If they don’t want to watch, that’s their choice. That’s perfect.”
“Well, bye”…? That’s your response to the taxpayers who paid to build that stadium and will have to pay some more in taxes to maintain it? To your fans who pay your salaries, whether we go to the games or not? I think you are confused as to who you work for. And you are on the job and, no, you don’t have the “right”, though your Player’s Union and NFL will defend you.
Furthermore, the entire narrative is FALSE… it started out as false and continues. Most of you cannot even articulate what you are protesting. And I daresay most of you have not even asked any of our military and law enforcement how THEY feel about what you are doing. Bye? Really?
