NFL Player Given HUGE Gift From US Military Turns Around And Gives Them Finger In Front of Millions

Published

on

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews shared on Twitter that he be “done playing football” in the NFL if he had to stop protesting the American Flag during the National Anthem. Matt Parker of WSMV Tweeted it out and people grabbed a screen capture of the Tweet before Matthews deleted it. This comes from a player whose brother, Christopher Ruiz, gave up his life serving in the military.

Matthews was given a huge gift from the military after his brother perished. Matthews was presented with an American Flag that was flown in Afghanistan where his brother lost his life serving in the military. It was an emotional moment that brought Matthews back to reality and hopefully made him realize what people give up to make this country better. His father also served in the military for many years, but it seems like the two men who should be closest in his life didn’t have a good influence on Rishard. Matthews throws up a hypothetical middle finger to the entire country and wants to protest during the playing of the National Anthem before NFL football games.

Could it get any more disrespectful to his brother and our country?

Matthews eventually deleted the Tweet, most likely after he realized how insane it would be to quit his easy million dollar job and come back to the real world where he’d likely be flipping burgers and asking if people want fries with that.

This is the Rishard Matthews people love.

This is the Rishard Matthews giving a middle finger to America.

Wide receiver Rishard Matthews said he would be done playing football when asked on Twitter if he would accept a fine or penalty if the NFL instituted a new rule for the national anthem, then later deleted the tweet.The starting receiver has stayed in the locker room during the national anthem through the last two games in protest of President Donald Trump’s comments on NFL players. Matthews was not available Thursday after practice before the locker room closed to reporters.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he could not comment because he learned of Matthews’ tweet after practice and had not talked to the player yet.

Even though Rishard Matthews deleted the Tweet, it still has people wondering what’s going on in his head.

Football fans don’t want politics in their sports. Professional sports, especially football, is a form of entertainment. It’s one big fancy show that football fans pay tons of money to see, getting ripped off at every stadium in the country for tons of cash, and fans are tired of seeing the nonsense. Fans want to see the show they’re paying for. Fans don’t want the politics in their game.

Will Rishard Matthews continue protesting or will he finally stop when he remembers what his father and brother did for America?

Matthews was chatting again on Twitter and essentially backtracked on his comment. He knows it was ridiculous because what guy will leave his million dollar job over a protest? We sure don’t see many people following Colin Kaepernick into the free agent market. It looks like his trend didn’t catch on very well.

Justin Beasley from WSMV caught up with Matthews on Twitter and here’s what Rishard had to say regarding his Tweet about quitting the NFL.

That means that Rishard Matthews really isn’t going to quit the NFL if he’s not allowed to protest anymore. People talk a big game then when it’s time to lose millions they go back on it. I say he should quit and live life as a normal everyday person for a year and see what it’s like. He should live paycheck to paycheck while sipping on cheap beer and living on Ramen Noodles and hot dogs. He should see what it’s like to have a bank account with only three numbers in it. He should save up three paychecks just to buy one NFL game ticket, parking, and food at a football stadium.

Whatever Rishard Matthews is thinking, he better get his mind right. This protest is nonsense and stands for absolutely nothing. Literally no one cares about whatever message it is they’re trying to send. Protesters are an annoying breed of people who continuously accomplish nothing. If Rishard Matthews wants to make a difference, then he should become a police officer or do something for his community that helps get people out of poverty.

I see a lot of NFL athletes talking big games but don’t see them putting their money where their mouth is. Instead we keep putting our money out and they’re taking it and giving us the finger.

Can you imagine what would happen to most NFL players if all fans boycotted the league? Those millionaires would be broke and working right next to us every day hard working blue collar folks and they wouldn’t know what to do.

Now get back to football and stop crying about social justice.

And if you see this, Rishard – remember this bro – you only have 20 catches for 284 yards and one touchdown. If you quit, no one would care. Remember how lucky you are to be the one in a million pro athlete and think about your brother and father whenever you see the American flag.

What This DISGUSTING Muslim Basketball Player Did During Anthem SHOCKED Entire Stadium

Trump is pissed & you will be too!

Published

on

An ungrateful Anti-American Muslim ball tossing student from Garden City Kansas has been swiftly removed from a junior college basketball team for actually shooting baskets during the playing of our nation’s national anthem.

But to add to the insult the 19-year-old student, Rasool Samir, is now claiming that his civil rights were violated when Garden City Community College, in Garden City Kansas, removed him from the team. School officials said that Samir was actually removed from the team because he didn’t follow a team rule that states that players must leave the court before the anthem plays.

Samir is no longer a student at the junior college but he, of course, has already filed a complaint with the ACLU claiming that the school violated his First Amendment rights on the basis that he has a “religious objection” to the anthem. Huh? Why are you here then? I bet our welfare system and free stuff don’t offend you.

Via The Garden City Telegram:

The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas has sent Garden City Community College a letter asking for clarification as to why former Broncbuster basketball player Rasool Samir is no longer on the team, following an incident between Samir and a Broncbuster booster after Samir shot baskets during the national anthem.

The incident occurred just prior to a Nov. 1 game against Sterling College, GCCC’s season opener. Samir was escorted out of the Conestoga Arena by a campus police officer, after Broncbuster Athletic Association member Jim Howard confronted him on the court. Howard, who said he confronted Samir because he felt his actions were disrespectful, was allowed to return to his seat, where he remained for the duration of the game.

Two days later, Samir was no longer enrolled at the college, and GCCC Director of Athletics John Green said it was Samir’s decision. However, Samir told The Telegram head men’s basketball coach Brady Trenkle told him he had to leave the college.

Now, Samir has filed a complaint with the ACLU, which then sent the letter, dated Nov. 9, to Green. The Telegram obtained a copy of the letter — which can be found here — and in it, the ACLU asks the college to address several allegations that the college may have violated Samir’s First Amendment rights.

“We believe any disciplinary action by GCCC against Mr. Samir for abstaining from the anthem is antithetical to our American values and a violation of his First Amendment rights,” the ACLU’s letter read.

The ACLU also asked for clarification of the college’s stance regarding why Samir was no longer at GCCC, citing The Telegram’s story in which Green claimed Samir left on his own accord, and then a KWCH-TV story in which Green said Samir had been dismissed for a violation of team rules.

“I think our objective with the letter is to discern the inconsistencies in statements to the media,” Lauren Bonds, ACLU’s legal director and author of the letter sent to GCCC, said Wednesday afternoon.

Bonds said that her office did receive a response from the college on Wednesday, but the ACLU had not reviewed it completely as of Wednesday afternoon. However, Bonds said that she believes the college’s response still contained inconsistencies.

When reached for comment Wednesday, Green directed questions regarding the incident and the ACLU letter to the college’s attorney, Randy Grisell of Doering and Grisell PA in Garden City. Following Wednesday night’s men’s home game with Barton, Trenkle also referred any questions regarding the incident to Grisell.

Grisell did not return a message left for him at his office Wednesday afternoon.

Samir, who is black and Muslim, previously said he wasn’t protesting, as many athletes across the country have done by kneeling or performing other actions during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality. He told The Telegram and reaffirmed in the ACLU’s letter that “he refrained from participating in the anthem because he is a Muslim and his faith prohibits acts of reverence to anything but God,” the letter said.

Prior to leaving the college, Samir apologized for shooting around during the anthem, saying he did not “mean any disrespect at all to the fans or the flag at last night’s game. I am truly sorry to anyone that felt disrespected, and I am also sorry to the school. I apologize for what happened.”

The ACLU contends, and cites in the letter at least a dozen judicial rulings, that any discipline that Samir possibly received because of his abstaining from the anthem is a violation of the First Amendment because GCCC is a public institution.

“It’s a kind of compelled patriotic salutes that we don’t think should be the basis on if a student-athlete is allowed to participate in athletics,” Bonds said.

Bonds said the ACLU has not decided on what step the organization would take next, if the college’s response was not satisfactory. However, Bonds said the ACLU has been able to resolve similar cases nationally using a demand letter, while the Nov. 9 letter was to gather information.

“Because we are concerned that Samir was kicked off the team for exercising his First Amendment rights, we ask that you please provide us with GCCC’s response to (Samir’s) allegations,” the letter read. “In particular, we request any documentation you have that establishes Samir: (1) was not chastised by Coach Trenkle for refusing to salute the flag; (2) was not ordered to leave Conestoga Arena for asserting his right to abstain from the anthem; (3) left the team voluntarily; and (4) was dismissed from the team due to a violation of team rules that carries the penalty of dismissal.”

Isn’t it great how these people come from third world cesspools, they take advantage of our generosity and our facilities and they are offended because of our national anthem? Isn’t it about damn time we start actually vetting the people who come into this nation? There are places in this world whose people have no positive influence to bring to our nation and our people. It’s not our obligation to be the place where the unwanted from other nations come to escape the slum they originated from. So that once they get here they can disrespect the greatest and most powerful nation ever known to man.

It’s really simple. If a person can’t even contain themselves long enough to at least show respect for our flag, and everything she stands for, we don’t need that person in this country.

Please share if you agree that people who are offended by our flag shouldn’t be living in our nation….

Budweiser’s New NFL Ad Leaves Every Military Fam In America In Complete SHOCK With What It Shows

Published

on

As one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors, Budweiser let it be known this week that they aren’t backing down to many Americans’ demands that they pull their support from the sport that allows protests to continue. Now, they have come out with a new commercial that is leaving every Military family in the country in complete shock.

The beer company offered a public statement that didn’t condone the National Anthem kneelers but also didn’t discredit them. They spoke of support for our military members who have and are defending our freedom but left a lot to be desired in making a real statement through assertive action.

Yahoo Finance compiled the responses of sponsors to the protest, most of which carried the disappointing theme that they considered the actions of players to be freedom of speech. The official report from Anheuser-Busch reads:

“On Monday night, a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch InBev sent Yahoo Finance this statement, which appears to fall into the play-it-safe, neutral category along with Under Armour and Ford:

“At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the institutions and values that have made America so strong.  That includes our armed forces and the national anthem as well as diversity, equality, and freedom of speech.  We proudly employ over 1,100 military veterans and we work every day to create an inclusive environment for all of our employees. Because only together can we achieve our dream of bringing people together for a better world.”

While their politically correct statement seems to be playing it really safe on the issue, their commercial sends a very clear message that not everyone is going to appreciate. Perhaps Anheuser-Busch realized the fine line they were walking with who their customers are. True Americans who bleed red, white, and blue and are boycotting the NFL are the ones who drink their beer, not those who support these anti-patriotic protests.

The company’s recent commercial represents this, bringing the attention back to where it belongs — on the sacrifice of those who fight to defend our flag that entitled sports stars are kneeling before.

When you reach into the cooler this weekend and pop open a cold one while spending time with those you love, Budweiser hopes you think of them and drink one of their beers while not watching football. With that plan in mind, they created a special commercial to commemorate our nation’s independence and many Americans were floored at what they saw.

It’s been a year of beer debacles a major brewing company like Heineken going down the misguided path behind liberal coffee giant Starbucks in mixing politics with their products. Budweiser also decided to mix the two but in a much different way that left their customer base in awe and ensured that they are the staple beverage for beer drinkers at cookouts across the country.

Right Wing News reports:

If this doesn’t make you bleed red, white, and blue for the rest of the year, I don’t  know what will. I mean, what’s more American than beer, Marines, Star Wars and helping veterans?

Star Wars star Adam Driver (better known as Kylo Ren) is a Marine veteran who has achieved his dream of becoming an actor. Now, he wants to give back, with the help of Budweiser’s “Folds Of Honor” program.

Budweiser created a docu-movie of sort in their moving ad that really tugs at the heartstrings of every country-loving patriot in the country. Driver is seen traveling across the country to meet up the real daughter of an actual wounded Army vet, John Williams, who had been severely injured during a training exercise. The hero’s daughter, Hayley Grace Williams, is currently studying to become a nurse and had written into the “Folds of Honor” program in hopes of getting a scholarship to help facilitate her dreams.

“Because of his injury, Williams was not able to go overseas and was medically discharged,” Right Wing News explains. “His daughter has been forced to work 40 hours a week to pay for her final year of school, which is going to cost $44,000. In her letter, Hayley explains that the weight she carries is so great that she may not be able to finish her final year of schooling.”

While Heineken preaches to red-blooded Americans about “open borders” on their bottles, Budweiser took the patriotic approach rather than using divisive political rhetoric to sell beer. The sales should speak for themselves in that Heineken lost a huge portion of their customer base and Budweiser reinstated they’re truly the “king of beers.”

Here is what the Heineken bottle reads:

Here’s To An Open World

To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.

Open Your World.

While Heineken thinks that what unites people is open borders, Budweiser understands that true red, white, and blue patriotism is what America really needs right now. That means doing more for those who fought and sacrificed for this country, than those who cross the border illegally. There are homeless, hurting veterans that need our attention and help before refugees and illegal immigrants. If liberals really cared about coming together and unifying people, their concern would be for those who defended their right to complain about “open borders.”

While we don’t get paid to promote any beer brand at Freedom Daily, you can bet that we’ll be buying a brew with real American values and not one with an agenda to push, like Heineken. We hope that everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day, drinks responsibly, and supports a brand that backs America and our heroes who fought for this country.

Massive Layoffs Just Hit NFL After Veterans Day Fiasco That Isn’t Over Yet And It’s Bad

Published

on

The NFL has not been doing too well since the media sensation surrounding players kneeling for the national anthem. Ratings and players notoriety and support have taken a hit because people are sick and tired of watching others disrespect the flag and the veterans and service members who fought for it. Now ESPN is taking a hit because of it.

After the Thanksgiving holidays, multiple sources have told reporters from Sports Illustrated that ESPN is expected to lay off more than 100 of their staffers. The positions that are being targeted for layoffs are front facing talent on the television end of the business, executives, producers, as well as technology and digital staffers. On-air talent is being considered for a cut because of how much ratings have plummeted as well as viewership. The on-air talent is being held responsible for not keeping people’s attention.

However, ESPN officials have refused to publicly comment to Sports Illustrated. Hiring has continued though, so it appears that layoffs will be considered for older employees who have been with the network longer. A sort of out with the old and in with the new type of deal.

Sports Illustrated reported,

“In Oct. 2015 the company laid off roughly 300 employees, about 4-5% of its workforce—a particularly brutal act of gutting given the long tenures of many of those who were cut. Many of those employees helped build the foundation of ESPN and had given their professional life to the company.

Last April, ESPN eliminated around 100 journalists and on-air personalities. At that time the company said: “A necessary component of managing change involves constantly evaluating how we best utilize all of our resources, and that sometimes involves difficult decisions.” ESPN continues to be impacted by the changing habits of consumers including cord-cutting and cord-nevers (those who have never purchased a cable subscription) as well as the rising costs of sports rights. The network has dropped in households from 100.13 million in 2011 to an estimated 87.5 million households today.

Part of the reason ESPN will conduct the moves in late November/early December, two sources said, is to get employees an additional year in the stock vesting program. Last month Michael McCarthy of Sporting News first noted a round of layoffs were coming to ESPN. If you have endured layoffs at your place of employment, you know how extraordinary awful they are. Multiple ESPN employees in speaking with SI said the atmosphere in Bristol is tense, especially in the SportsCenter division. Asked to characterize how employees are feeling, one longtime on-air anchor offered one word: “Queasy.””

The Free Beacon reported,

“The network has suffered from steep expenditures on broadcasting deals in tandem with a reduced subscriber base, even as it has made a series of public missteps.
One public relations challenge came when “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill called President Donald Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and then called for a boycott of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ advertisers. ESPN suspended her for twice violating company social media policy, and Trump publicly mockedthe network for its ratings.

Executive decisions have also harmed the network’s image. Examples include the rapid canceling of a partnership with Barstool Sports and the controversial removal of an Asian-American announcer from a University of Virginia football game over his name’s similarity to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Rumors of layoffs surfaced in October, when Sporting News reported that 40 to 60 positions would be eliminated. Even with that modest estimate, sources were saying at the time that the layoffs would affect popular people at all levels. “This time it won’t matter if you’re ‘liked’ or not. It’s not going to be pretty,” one source said.”

The irony of this report coming out a day after Veterans Day cannot be lost on, or forgotten by anyone. NFL ratings through ESPN have been decreasing rapidly and it is in no small part due to the fact that players have been kneeling during the national anthem. Football viewership has a stronghold in middle America and average citizens love America, work hard, and respect this country. They have chosen not to tune in because of it.

The MLB does not have this issue and the NFL would do well to look at the MLB as an example of what to do if they want to remain relevant and making money. Because if they continue on the path they are going their ratings will get worse and their business will flop.

Given that yesterday was Veterans Day this is very good news. People need to be held responsible. And the best part of it all is that these paid athletes and celebrity sports entertainers are being held responsible with their layoffs based purely on the fact that their actions have consequences and nobody wants to watch them anymore.

Share if you agree that there is a correlation between a failing ESPN and players in the NFL kneeling during the national anthem!
