NFL Slaps Americans In The Face Again!!!

In another slap to the face of Americans, the NFL will not force players to stand for the National Anthem.   In an October 17th, 2017 article by The New York Times after a meeting between NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, several team owners, and NFL Players Union and Reps, the NFL has decided not to punish players who kneel during the National Anthem at the start of football games for the time being.

At a press conference following the meeting, Stephen Ross who owns the Miami Dolphins, made the following comments when asked if players would continue to protest by kneeling.

“I can’t really tell you what people are going to do. The league has a policy. It hasn’t changed”

The league rules does state that players need to be on the sidelines for the anthem, and states that they “should” stand for the anthem.  So unfortunately with the rulebook stating that makes it difficult to impose fines or to suspend the players.  In my opinion the owners should follow the example of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and tell the players that they should stand for the anthem or have consequences for not standing.

It is time for all of us to do more to further the boycott of the National Football League and the sponsors of the National Football League.

  1. I will continue to Boycott all NFL games including sponsors until these overpayed, disrespecting players Start standing during the National anthem !!!
    If they want to protest by taking a knee… they should do it on their own time NOT while they are in uniform!
    It’s a disgrace that the commissioner hasn’t the balls to tell these ungrateful players that they are employees of the franchise & the FANS will Not support their behavior on the field…. we watch football for Football NOT for these players to play politics!!!
