One Disgusting Player Knelt On Thanksgiving While Military Hero Sang – Now The Ratings Are In

Now this is some Karma right here!

Published

on

On Thanksgiving evening, the New York Giants played against the Washington Redskins. And although the yearly NFL Thanksgiving day game has turned into an American tradition after the famed Thanksgiving feast, not many fans were thankful this year. In fact, fans were so upset that the Thanksgiving Day game ratings fell another 10% on the spot.

The national anthem protests continued even on Thanksgiving in spite of the severe drop in ratings since they escalated earlier in the season. The national anthem protests have hit the NFL so hard that it has led the league to become one of the most divisive brands in the entire nation. But even though the stats don’t lie, apparently New York Giants defensive end, Olivier Vernon, didn’t get the memo because he was the only player to take a knee during the national anthem in Washington. But what was even more offensive about his actions was that the man singing the national anthem was a Master Sergeant in the United States Army.

Fox News Reports:

Hey, NFL owners, tired of half-empty stadiums? This isn’t hard. Tell your players to stand up for America

NJ bar boycotts NFL, holds fundraiser for veterans instead

Co-owners of Woody’s Roadside Tavern speak out on the success of their Sunday event on ‘Fox & Friends.’

I’m from Green Bay; my high school colors were green & gold and I am part owner of the Green Bay Packers from when they sold stock after the 1997 Super Bowl victory. So, it took quite a bit to get me to boycott the NFL, but they managed it. Until the owners require their players to stand for the national anthem, or sit for the game, I won’t watch a minute, and I’m not alone.

Since Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem in a misguided protest against police violence, the NFL has been hemorrhaging fans. Both TV viewership and attendance at stadiums are well down and once people find other ways to spend their Sundays, they may not come back.

Let there be no doubt, the NFL is a business and the owners of those billion dollar plus franchises have a problem. A bunch of their players want to play social justice games, but their core audience, the folks who pay the bills, just want them to play football. And we really don’t like the disrespect shown to the anthem, the flag and those who fought for our country including those who came home in coffins with that flag draped over them.

This Veterans Day weekend there was quite a duality. The NFL went whole hog saluting the military and trying to mend fences. Historically the league, and most of the players, have been very supportive of the military. Part of that was the tens of millions of tax dollars the military paid them to put on displays with the flag and flyovers for the recruiting value, but there was also a genuine bond for the most part.

But at the same time there was a push to boycott the NFL. I did my part on social media:

Like many others, seeing a bunch of pampered millionaires stealing the moment when we should all come together in thanks for the freedoms we enjoy, and yes for those who safeguard them, well that just flat pisses me off.

They say the protests are not against the anthem or the flag or the military for that matter. But that is garbage because the effect is to disrespect all of those things so they can virtue signal their solidarity with the radical left. They could do their social justice pandering whenever they want, and they made a conscious choice. By choosing to put the spotlight on themselves instead of the symbols of what makes this country great.

That just doesn’t sit well with those of us who served, or have family who did or who just want to enjoy a football game without politics. We get plenty of bitter arguments and displays of partisanship all day every day. Football was a time to forget all that and just remember how much the Bears still suck. They took that and even worse did so with divisive anti-police grievance mongering to a crowd with a heavy component of Blue Lives Matters sentiment.

We will see if the NFL charm offensive worked, although the pictures of half empty stadiums should sure give the owners cause to worry. It’s pretty simple to fix, tell the players to stand up for America or the rest of us may sit out…permanently.

President Trump chimed in:

The bottom line here is that no matter what narrative the left wing media tries to spin to explain the NFL’s sagging ratings, people as a whole side with President Donald Trump on this issue. ESPN has gone as far as calling this “NFL fatigue,” but if that was the case then NFL stadiums wouldn’t be half, or more, empty while college football stadiums are practically full and have not suffered any decline in viewership or attendance whatsoever, in fact, most game ratings have actually skyrocketed during this season.

Americans still love football and they always will, it’s the NFL and its Anti-American players that they refuse to watch or give their hard earned money to!

Please share if you are boycotting the NFL and it’s rich spoiled ball tossing brats….

NFL Legend John Elway Just ENDED ALL The Racist Player Protests Just Before Super Bowl

Published

on

As the current executive vice president of football operations and general manager of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League, John Elway knows a thing or two about football, sportsmanship, and respect.

He’s watched the sport he retired from in 1998 devolve into a national mockery, thanks to the sideline antics of ignorant athletes who intentionally disrespect the country before each game. This isn’t the league that Elway once played for and didn’t become the winningest quarterback in National Football League history, after 16 seasons and two Super Bowl championships because he was focused on protesting.

Protesting wasn’t popular in football when Elway was on the field. Players played the game, respected the country, the sport, franchise, and fans and went out to win for their team every game.

Now, working with the NFL in an executive capacity with the Denver Broncos, Elway has seen enough in this preseason and is putting an end to it. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell picked his side and told fans to be the tolerant ones, not the protesting athletes, but Elway has a different approach to the problem.

It’s been about a week since the debauchery began with players kneeling or sitting out the National Anthem. A Denver Bronco player wasn’t among those who disrespected our country, but the Colorado team’s linebacker, Brandon Marshall, did kneel last year for several games.

Elway has finally broken his silence on the matter and pointed out the one big problem with these protests which nobody has before.

247 Sports reports:

Asked Thursday about sitting or kneeling during the National Anthem — a trend started by Colin Kaepernick in 2016 and continuing this preseason — the Broncos’ general manager gave a strong, well-thought-out response.

The gist? He respects players’ beliefs and supports their rights, with the caveat being that it doesn’t hurt the team.

“We have not had a conversation with them and I think that my stance—I think everybody has the right to do what they wish to do and their beliefs are their beliefs. That’s why we live in this country and they have the right to display whatever they wish to display,” Elway said.

“I think one thing that where we stand and I can stand with the Broncos is that you know what, that’s OK, we’ll respect that and whatever you want to do is fine with us. But the bottom line is, that can’t get in the way of our main goal and that is to compete for World Championships. I just don’t want that pulling away from our team. Sometimes that can pull away because obviously it gets a lot of attention.”

Players’ protests are selfish since they hurt the team, franchise, and NFL which is something they should recognize considering that football is more than a game, it’s a business. However, this is a team sport and they are part something bigger than themselves and their cause.

The entire team wants to win what they were hired to play the sport to do, and one bad apple can derail everyone from what should be the common goal of a championship – not a political cause.

“The only thing I would say to our players is make sure it’s not hurting your teammates, right? Because if the questions and everything the tenor changes of what’s going on in these interviews and now you’re not talking about our next opponent but talking about what’s going on out in the world,” Elway explained in his interview.

“That’s not the best thing for our football team. My only advice—we tell our players, I respect where you stand, just when you’re doing anything just understand what it’s doing to the football team because I want all of these guys to understand that we’re football first and we want to win football games.”

Elway reiterated the fact that he completely respects people’s differences of opinions — we all do. All fans of the sport don’t care what a player’s personal politics are, or if they agree with them on 100% of the same issues. Fans just want to watch and enjoy the sport without it being politicized.

There’s a time, place, and respectable way to express your opinions and it’s often not on the job or in an arena like this. These players are part of a team first and if they protest and compromise the goal of the group in doing so, they should be punished for that.

BREAKING! After The NFL Trashed Veterans 2 Executives were Just FIRED For SICKENING Thing!!!

ROT IN PRISON!

Published

on

The National Football League is on a crash course for disaster that began at the start of the season. They’ve done everything they can disrespect America and our heroes and made it clear that they don’t plan to change that anytime soon. They were even given the chance to make it right and chose to trash veterans instead. Now, two top executives have just been fired for the absolutely sickening thing they did that they tried to hide.

It costs a lot of money to get a coveted advertisement spot for the most watched event of the year – the Super Bowl. Although rates are probably a little better for commercial spots this year, they still come at quite a price. The American Veterans group was willing and want to put up the cash for a short Super Bowl ad to send a message that is very important to them that would certainly be appreciated by every red-blooded American, even if they weren’t watching. It’s the remaining fans that needed to see what they had to say the most, but won’t for one disgusting reason.

Fox News reports:

The National Football League has rejected a Super Bowl advertisement from American Veterans urging people to stand for the national anthem.

The nation’s largest veterans service organization had been invited by the NFL to place an ad in the Super Bowl LII program. AMVET’s advertisement included a two-word message – “#PleaseStand.”

“It’s a simple, polite request that represents the sentiment of our membership, particularly those whose missing or paralyzed limbs preclude standing,” wrote National Commander Marion Polk in a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

American Veterans accused the NFL of outright censorship by rejecting the advertisement.

The NFL had their chance to prove they aren’t divisive and anti-American by allowing this simple yet profound commercial run. They even would have been paid to put it up but instead, it was more important for them to stick it to veterans and purposely disrespect our flag. While this is expected since they did that all season long and never tried to stop players from kneeling despite losing droves of fans, they should have made it right the best they could in the end.

“NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy defended the league’s decision to ban the American Veterans’ advertisement noting that the game day program ‘is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,'” Fox News added.

“It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement,” McCarthy told Army Times.

Basically, the NFL is saying that to simply and kindly ask people to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner is the same as making a divisive political statement.

Hours after this came out it was learned what else the NFL was hiding, specifically two top execs at the NFL Network.

According to Breitbart:

Executive Producer of Original Content Michael Mandt and Coordinating Producer of Features Dan Dieffenbach have been ousted at the NFL Network, both having been allegedly caught up in sexual harassment investigations, according to reports.
NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller reportedly informed Deadspin that the network had severed ties with the pair but did not offer further comment.

Deadspin also reported that the two had been on administrative leave since December. Both were let go as of January 19.

Mandt previously worked at ESPN and SyFy Channel, as well as AOL. Dieffenbach previously worked with Mandt in his Original Content Group.

The separations are part of a growing list of accusations of sexual harassment lodged against other network employees.

Awful Announcing reports:

This adds to the turnover at NFL Network. David Eaton, the VP of NFL Media, resigned last month after Deadspin pointed out his history of interacting with porn actresses and escorts on Twitter, while Heath Evans, Marshall Faulk, and Ike Taylor are all still suspended pending that sexual harassment investigation. The lawsuit from former NFLN stylist Jami Cantor that led to those analysts’ suspensions also implicated Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis, who had since moved on to ESPN (that network parted ways with them earlier this month), and former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger, an executive producer at the network who oversaw their studio programming before he left to run the Bill Simmons Media Group and The Ringer in November 2015 (he’s since been suspended from his role there).

Just when you thought the NFL couldn’t get any worse, they outdo themselves. The need to get rid of a lot more executives than just these two, if there’s ever a chance of the league regaining fans – starting with the commissioner Roger Goodell who allowed these problems to persist unchecked all season long which destroyed the industry.

BREAKING! NFL Just Enraged Every Veteran In America With Super Bowl Ad – How Could They Do This?!

THEY WON’T RECOVER FROM THIS HUGE ‘F YOU’

Published

on

The worst season that the National Football League has ever seen is finally coming to an end. Rather than slipping into obscurity after having lost the majority of their fan base, they decided to stick it veterans, having saved their most disrespectful anti-American action to the bitter end. Their fate for the future of professional football had already been determined, but this just officially seals the deal that the league is done.

The National Football League has become a national disgrace starting at the top with who calls the shots and has perpetually refused to stop players from disrespecting our flag and country. The league got what they had coming to them when they didn’t get ahead of the issue and got behind it instead. The National Anthem protest that started last season with former 49ers player, Colin Kaepernick that many hoped would just fade away, did not. In fact, it spread like a virus, infecting every single team in the NFL. That “cancer” has now killed America’s former favorite sport and now they just doubled down on their disrespect with what the league just told a massive veterans’ group.

It costs a lot of money to get a coveted advertisement spot for the most watched event of the year – the Super Bowl. Although rates are probably a little better for commercial spots this year, they still come at quite a price. The American Veterans group was willing and want to put up the cash for a short Super Bowl ad to send a message that is very important to them that would certainly be appreciated by every red-blooded American, even if they weren’t watching.

Basically, the NFL is saying that to simply and kindly ask people to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner is the same as making a divisive political statement.

According to Army Times:

AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk said the issue is one of fairness and respect.

“Freedom of speech works both ways,” he said. “We respect the rights of those who choose to protest, as these rights are precisely what our members have fought — and in many cases died — for.

“But imposing corporate censorship to deny that same right to those veterans who have secured it for us all is reprehensible and totally beyond the pale.”

In a statement, NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy said the Super Bowl game program “is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl. It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”

They noted that the program will include a similar ad from the Veterans of Foreign Wars that states simply “We Stand for Veterans.” McCarthy said AMVETS was asked to consider changing their ad to read “Please Stand for Our Veterans” but did not reply in time for production deadlines.

Although it wasn’t likely that too many freedom-loving Americans were going to watch the Super Bowl anyway, this pretty much seals the deal that those who may have, probably won’t now or ever again. The league can’t say that they are politically neutral and then decline an ad that simply asks people to stand, while there’s a really good chance there will be some anti-Trump undertones in their commercials and at their halftime show.
