The NFL players who chose to hijack the league’s platform during the 2017-18 season by taking a knee (or raising a black power fist) for the national anthem have been nothing short of a public relations nightmare for the once-thriving sports league.
On top of that, the league’s commissioner, Roger Goodell, along with a majority of team owners, are too intimated by the millionaire players they employ to enforce the rule that players should be standing for the anthem.
The Lt. Gov. of Louisiana just let his home team — the New Orleans Saints — know that he is NOT happy with the all the kneeling and thinks it’s highly disrespectful to our military (and he’s right). What he just vowed to do makes me want to buy the man a drink…
The second round of the NFL playoffs is upon us, and perhaps the best match-up of the four games features the New Orleans Saints traveling to Minnesota to play the Vikings.
This a great match-up featuring an outstanding defense (Minnesota) against one of the NFL’s most high-powered offenses (New Orleans).
But one guy who won’t be attending this big game is Louisiana Lt. Gov. Bill Nungesser, who is boycotting the NFL over players protesting the National Anthem.
“I have not been to a game since the protesting,” Nungesser told NOLA.com. “I wish [the Saints] well, but I’m not going to the games.”
Nungesser believes the protests are unpatriotic and disrespectful to the military.
“I’m very close to a lot of people that lost loved ones in the war,” Nungesser said. “I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose a son.”
SHARE this all over social media to remind America that there are some good politicians out there who stick to their word and do the right thing, even if it means they’re unpopular.
