This Sunday, NFL players made a point to unite together against our President and our country. Players on nearly every team showed some form of protest and disrespect for our military men and women.
Three teams, the Seahawks Titans and Steelers, made the ultimate cowardly move and stayed in the locker room during the national anthem. Only one player on the Pittsburgh Steelers, Alejandro Villanueva, had the courage to go against orders from the coach and stand on the field for the anthem.
Villanueva is a former Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan and deserves to be commended for his actions.
These entitled NFL millionaires seemed pretty proud of themselves for their disgraceful behavior, but after their performances ended Sunday, they got hit with a harsh dose of reality.
“Not only did ratings drop, stock shares of every single company that broadcast NFL games PLUMMETED!
Comcast, Walt Disney, Fox, CBS–are all down between 1% to 8%.”
An article in The Hollywood Reporter reckons the drop in NFL ratings could trim the broadcaster’s earnings by $200 million! Disney’s ESPN, meanwhile, also continues to get hammered by cord-cutting.
Our President is standing with the majority of Americans on this issue, a Reuters poll found that 72% of Americans find kneeling during the anthem unpatriotic.
Lets be honest, this isn’t about race, inequality or police brutality. It’s about selfish entitled egomaniacs just finding another way to play the victim.
Sure it’s their right to choose not to participate in our national anthem, but where would they be if our military members chose not to participate in fighting for their freedom?
Maybe they need to think about that.
