Folks, this is one of the most disturbing updates we’ve seen come out of this entire anthem protesting situation. The fact that the NFL is abandoning its core supporters and doing everything they can to appease the “social justice warrior” culture of the radical left is absolutely disgusting.
Look what the NFL announced Friday, which includes plans to use their platform as a platform to project a message that will only appeal to America’s ultra-leftists.
The National Football League announced on Friday that it wants to use its platform to raise awareness for social justice issues and that it does not plan to mandate that players stand for the U.S. national anthem.
Commissioner Roger Goodell and the head of the NFL Players Association are expected to meet with team owners this next week in New York where they will discuss possible solutions on how to end the national anthem protests, Reuters reported.
“(Goodell) has a plan that he is going to present to owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and make progress on issues of social justice and equality in this country,” NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call.
“What we don’t have is a proposal that changes our policy, we don’t have something that mandates anything,” Lockhart continued. “If that was the case I doubt the head of the NFLPA would have put a joint statement out with us.”
As NFL ratings continue to plummet — down nearly 10% from last year — news networks are increasingly choosing not to show the national anthem because of protests by players, which often elicit boos from fans.
Thursday’s matchup between the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles, despite being a strong matchup between two high-profile teams, was down 5% from the previous week’s Thursday night matchup.
SHARE this on Facebook and Twitter if you think this is one of the dumbest moves the NFL has made thus far.
Also, here’s the official “I Don’t Kneel” t-shirt (we have hoodie, long-sleeve and v-neck options, too!) that has part of the proceeds going to the National Coalition of Homeless Veterans!
