How Patriotic Are NFL Fans, Anyway?
The Counter on the lower right hand Corner of The Whistleblower Web Page says it’s just about time for this weekend’s VETERANS DAY NFL BOYCOTT when all Patriotic Americans are supposed to be showing solidarity with veterans around the country by staying away from or viewing any NFL games during Veterans Day Weekend (Sunday, November 12, and Monday November 13).
More than a quarter million people have joined a Facebook group vowing to boycott the NFL this weekend over the ongoing national anthem protests among the players. Boycott the NFL, has more than 250,000 follows from people who have vowed to boycott the NFL. Those who support the page have promised to protest the NFL today.
“We will be not be watching or listening to NFL games on November 12th in solidarity with veterans around the country, as football players have continued to disrespect the national anthem, the American flag, and everything our nation stands for,” the page says, according to Fox News.
Thousands vow to boycott the NFL on Veterans Day weekend
Despite the backlash, there will be no change in the anthem policy which says players “should” stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” but doesn’t require them to do so.
According to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell: “There has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem. The agenda will be a continuation of how to make progress on the important social issues that players have vocalized. Everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military, and we are coming together to deal with these issues in a civil and constructive way.”
In addition, Goodell and NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith pointed to an upcoming meeting to be held this week in which NFL officials and players will discuss “important social issues.”
The Blower says those poor oppressed tattooed millionaire NFL players whining about President Trump have a right to complain if they want to, but during the National Anthem is NOT the time or place! They show an utter lack of patriotism and total disrespect for our Veterans – living and dead – and everything for which they put their lives on the line!
