Boycott the National Felons' League

Post by Nightshade » Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:37 am

Because highly paid goons that play the game have no clue about what the country stands for. Nor do they know how lucky they are to have the privilege of being citizens.
The NFL announced Saturday there has been “no change” in its national-anthem policy despite a Veterans Day campaign to boycott Sunday’s games over the take-a-knee protests.

Boycott the NFL, a Facebook page with more than 227,000 followers, has called on supporters to tune out Sunday’s games “in solidarity with veterans around the country,” while the conservative watchdog group 2ndVote asked fans to “stiff-arm the NFL.”

“We’re sending the National Football League, its corporate sponsors, and the television networks a message this Veterans Day weekend!” said 2ndVote. “Americans are sick of the disrespectful National Anthem protests that the NFL has not only allowed to continue, but has institutionalized in pregame ceremonies.”

You know NS, the more you patriot-types whine about it, the more they're going to do it just to tick you off. It becomes entertainment after a while. The lesson here is that ignoring a bunch of protesters is probably the quickest way to stop said protesting. :wink:

I'm basically on perma-boycott anyway. I stopped watching spectator sports as soon as I matured past the age of 15. :P

It's all garbage anyway.

I only watch my local college team myself, but this year it's hard to stomach. They pretty much suck at football playing right now. :roll:
