This certainly has slipped under the radar of the mainstream media.
It’s a powerful photo of a female stadium security guard working the football game between Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals — and two multi-millionaire NFL athletes, Brandon Marshall and Demaryius Thomas, are squatting against the wall behind her in protest of the National Anthem.
It speaks a thousand words — and mostly says that this woman is strong. Despite photographers all around and influential NFL stars within earshot, she put her hand on her heart and looked upon Old Glory with pride.
This photo also exudes a high-level of immaturity from the pictured NFL players, who refuse to join their teammates and stand for the Anthem because of an emotional and political agenda.
And due to the number of similar protests to these, the NFL has taken a hit with viewership and popularity. President Trump tweeted the following on Sunday:
“Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison. Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade. If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!”

A few hours after this tweet, two Miami Dolphins players openly kneeled during the National Anthem during the first game of the regular season. It’s going to be a long year for the NFL.
Do you stand for the National Anthem? Prove it and help spread the word by going here for your official “I Stand For The Anthem” t-shirt or hoodie!
