The NFL continues to disrespect the American flag and the members of our military both past and present by taking a knee during the national anthem when it is played before games.
Although the number of players who protest has decreased over the past few weeks, the NFL’s BS continues to continue and the American people are not happy about it. Although, I would be remiss not to mention there appears to be less resistance from fans than there has been in the past.
For example, DML News reported Friday that the ratings for the most recent Thursday Night Football game increased when compared to the last time the NFL aired on a Thursday evening. Even so, for the year, overall, the drop off in TV viewership haunts the embattled league and their sponsors.
That said, on Sunday, November 11, I urge you not to tune in. Trust me, you will not stand alone in your boycott. Veterans Day weekend has sparked a new boycott against the NFL.
A Facebook page called “Boycott the NFL,” boasting more than 227,000 followers, is asking football fans to skip watching Sunday’s games “in solidarity with veterans around the country.”
Make no doubt about what I’ve been telling you for months — the NFL believes you will return. They believe you will give in and give up. To support my claim, consider this: Despite the calls for a Veterans Day weekend boycott, the league’s rogue leadership and its money-hungry players union announced on Veterans Day that there would be “no change” in league policy regarding the on-field protests.
The NFL players union said its members planned to observe a moment of silence for veterans at Sunday’s games, while various teams planned other Veterans Day tributes. Gee, aren’t we lucky. Thanks.
You have a choice Sunday. Either you tune in or you tune out. While you consider this choice, remember that the men and women of our military, both past and present, were once faced with a choice: ‘Do I stay home and watch football, or do I enlist to defend my country and the freedom of my fellow Americans?’ We know how they answered. I urge you do the same for them today.
