Must be nice to guard a line or quarterback for millions of dollars. But, someone sons and daughters are guarding this country for virtually nothing and these multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect it. It is time these NFL players to quit acting like self-entitled diva’s and show some respect.
Retired U.S. Marine Col. Jeffrey Powers wrote an open letter to the NFL commissioner and totally destroyed him and all of the players that protest the national anthem!
“Many friends, Marines and special forces soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American flag draped over their coffins,” Powers wrote.
“Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for.”
Following massive league-wide anthem protests before Sunday’s NFL games, Powers’ letter is making the rounds again.
On “Fox & Friends” this morning, Powers said he’s “fed up” with players refusing the show respect to the country, flag, and anthem.
“It’s out of control, and they’re spitting on the graves of our fallen,” he said. (video below)
