What a great way for a team to lose even more fans and followers. Just disrespect our country and flag for Veterans day weekend!!
Everybody knows that Colin Kaepernick’s polarizing decision to protest the national anthem was a stupid thing to do! Honoring and respect the flag of our nation is also paying respect for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep of nation safe and free.
We finally have a President that the world respects! But, it is so sad when you are more appreciated in a foreign country than in your own. And it is a sad day when foreign dignitaries and their citizens show more respect for our flag and anthem than America citizens.
Last night, the Philadelphia Eagles won a stunning 41-33 victory in Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots – and their players decided to get political in their post-game remarks.
Eagles players quickly made it clear that they had no intention of traveling to the White House for the customary ceremonial visit.
Safety Malcolm Jenkins told CNN’s New Day that “I permanently do not anticipate attending that.”
Wide receiver Torrey Smith spoke about the subject on Wednesday, saying that “we read the news just like everyone else. You see Donald Trump tweet something … We have those conversations in the locker room, just like everyone else does in the workplace. We’re very informed about what goes on, and we’re trying to continue to educate ourselves.”
Defensive end Chris Long already declared he wasn’t going to go long before the game was actually played. “No, I’m not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?” he told a podcast last week.
Running back LeGarrette Blount, who did not visit the White House when he won the Super Bowl with the Patriots last year, also made it clear he was not going to humor our president. “I just don’t feel welcome into that house. I’m just gonna leave it at that.”
The American majority is sick and tired of NFL players using the field as a platform to spew their political views. Disrespecting our flag and our anthem is not the way to protest nor the place to protest! We The People are pissed at the disrespect to our military and our country!
Some of NFL’s biggest sponsors are now regretting their decision to stand by NFL because they now suffer a huge loss because of the anthem protests!
