This same NFL has no problem fining players thousands of dollars for, say, honoring the slain Dallas police officers or writing other things on their uniforms.
But the NFL seems incapable of understanding that at least part of their ever-dropping TV ratings and ever dwindling fans-in-the-stands, like this one:
I, personally, have dumped my franchise-history long allegiance to the Seahawks starting last year with the idiocy of that moronic defensive back, Jeremy Lane, who felt he had to be Kaeperpick's bitch and disrespect the Flag and the Anthem just like he did.
This year, it's that thug Michael Bennett and others.
You see, these scum believe... And the frightened NFL has so far gone along with... the idea that they have a "right" do engage in this middle-school bullshit. A bunch of pampered, spoiled, multimillionaire jocks, disrespecting the flag on a field the grateful taxpayers for the State of Washington bought these low-lifes because obviously, Paul Allen couldn't afford it.
The President said, effectively, what every NFL owner AND the Commissioner SHOULD have said and SHOULD BE SAYING:
Well, that kind of hypocrisy cannot be overlooked.
And clearly, they have no problem disrespecting the Country that has enabled them to become prima-donna millionaires because they can play a game.
If these punks are looking for sympathy, one of my old platoon sergeants used to tell us "it's in the dictionary between 'shit' and 'syphilis.'"
I appreciate the President delivering the message to these light weights. Screw them AND the National Football League.
