NFL Fan Outrage So Severe The League May Never Recover…

While the long-term impact will take time to be quantified, early indicators are the NFL has entirely destroyed itself by allowing the politicization of the sport.

A significant number of NFL fans are so upset with players refusing to stand for the national anthem they have decided to respond with demonstrations of their own. WATCH:

Additionally, a recent survey of fan sentiment shows just how severe the backlash is.  According to Remington Research the vast majority of Americans agree with President Donald Trump:

(via Breitbart) The survey addresses the Trump factor directly:

Q7: Last week, Donald Trump said NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem. Do you think NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem?

Yes: 64%
No: 25%
Unsure: 11%

Q8: On Sunday, a number of NFL players knelt during the national anthem in protest of Donald Trump’s statements, including players from your favorite team. Does this make you more likely or less likely to watch your favorite team’s games in the future?

More likely: 30%
Less likely: 50%
No difference: 20%

That two-question sequence is devastating for the NFL. Within the space of those questions, the poll establishes that a significant majority of the American people agree with what Trump said in Alabama on Friday night. Moreover, it also shows that the NFL’s response to President Trump was a complete failure.

    I’m not a fan of Maya Angelou (Obama’s favorite poet) but I think these words sum up how many people feel when they saw football players take the knee during the National Anthem. It was a gut punch that doesn’t come undone.

          The reason we won WW 2 is that all Americans stood together whether it was on the Front Lines or on the Home Front. No matter what their race, color or creed. They all wanted to do their best to keep our soldiers safe. Now we have North Korea threatening us with Nukes and our nation is divided.

          Football teams who should honor the greatness of America in these dangerous times seem to feel it necessary to show the world they could care less about The USA and appear to have no respect for its people. Whether these overpaid young fools care or not The USA is the Greatest Nation on Earth. These young athletes could learn so much from those who sacrificed their lives for the rest of us.

      Also, remember the owners’ first reaction, to Kaepernick and the kneelers this year. The owners supported them. We know this also because Goodell didn’t complain about them, and Goodell says what the owners want him to say. And the owners just gave Goodell a new 10 year contract so he’s doing what they want him to do.

      Now the owners are trying to bring their players into line, but it’s the first reaction that’s revealing. As Hillary Clinton liked to quote Maya Angelou, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.” We know who the owners are. Don’t forget it as now they try to fuzz it up.

Abdul-Rauf also said standing for the anthem would conflict with his Muslim faith. “You can’t be for God and for OPPRESSION. It’s clear in the Quran, ISLAM is the only way,” he said at the time. “I don’t criticize those who stand, so don’t criticize me for sitting.””

    Excerpt:

    “In less than a week, the left has gone from defending athletes disrespecting the flag to shaming those who choose not to—to bullying those honoring their own conscience.

    There are countless ways to protest something without spitting on America, especially if you are an NFL player. But Subban is under attack for not participating, for not violating his conscience, and all because a white man believes black people should never stray from the Thought Plantation.”

    Kaepernick, currently, is not a very good player. When he first came in to the league, he was pretty good. But, what normally happens, for a mobile quarterback, he learned that he could run from trouble instead of thinking and passing his way out. This led to him making bigger and bigger mistakes on the field. He relied so much on his physical abilities. In doing so, there was no way he could run forever and teams would soon figure out how to stop him. (Teams still haven’t figured out how to stop Tom Brady, and I could easily beat that guy in a race. There’s more to being a QB than just raw talent.)

    So, he took a team to the Super Bowl, and it seemed like he was going to be a future super star. Things changed. Shortly after his mass success, he decided to go full vegan and lost upwards of 40 pounds. For a quarterback that is hit and tackled constantly, because of his playing style, this isn’t good. There were also rumors that he converted to islam, which could also account for his attention being elsewhere.

    The last year he played was one of the worst performances from a quarterback…. ever. It was horrendous. Very few passing yard, very few touchdowns, lots of interceptions, and darn near lost every game. It was embarrassing. He was benched – permanently.

    Anytime you hear an announcer exclaim with surprise that he has no idea why Kaepernick isn’t in the league because he is good enough, well, they are thinking of the younger Kaepernick. All the other quarterbacks they compare him to have an upside and have the ability to grow. Kaepernick is a one trick pony (run run run), and based on his actions, he refused to learn and grow in order to become a true quarterback in the NFL.

    Also, anyone who claims “oppression” based on lies, and then disrespects this country and flag should not be in the league. Don’t forget, Kaepernick’s reason for sitting was to purposely disrespect the flag and country. It was in his original statement. He got a reaction. A fiery reaction from patriots throughout the country.

    I love football. I have not watched an NFL game this year. I’m recovering from back surgery, and staying away from the NFL has been difficult. As such, I have committed myself to watching NCAA Football… until the SJW’s ruin that too.

      To the NFL players who take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.

      So, you want to take a knee?

      Take a trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle. Wait your turn while listening to the screams of pain from the wounded.
      Then take a knee.

      Go to Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, dodging dead bodies and withering machine gun fire,…the very sea stained with American blood. Imagine that your fellow players are your dead brothers in arms.
      Then take a knee.

      Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. Over 60,000 Americans died in those jungles.There was no playbook or million dollar contracts for doing your job, but they understood what our flag represented. When they came home, they were protested by their fellow Americans.
      Then take a knee while they spit on you.

      Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat..Trade in your pads for a Kevlar helmet and battle dress…You’ll have to stay hydrated, but there won’t be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. And watch out for those IEDs when you take a knee.

      There’s a lot of places to take a knee. Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your protest, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That’s what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled it defending your liberty.

      So while you’re on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on manicured fields striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of game yardage…but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains…every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.

      No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans…just American men and women on the land, air, and sea, delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us..so you would have the opportunity to dishonor their service by “taking a knee.”

      You have no clue what it took to get you where you are…your millions of dollars, mansions, cars etc…your “protest” is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation, it points to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your stats and game jersey are completely forgotten…

      Topped off by AG Sessions: Free Speech Under Attack on College Campuses….
      “Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday the Justice Department will support students who sue universities claiming their free speech rights were violated…
      …the Justice Department announced it would lend its support to a student who sued Georgia Gwinnett College, arguing his rights were violated when administrators limited where he could preach Christianity on campus.”
      — Chicago Tribune

      https://www.justice.gov/opa/speech/attorney-general-sessions-gives-address-importance-free-speech-college-campuses
      “… recruit others to their cause, they staked out some ground on a campus walkway popular with students and approached them as they passed.

      They said things like: “Do you like freedom? Do you like liberty?” and then they offered to these passersby a document they revered and believed stood for these ideals: the U.S. Constitution

      …. this incident happened right here in the United States, just last year, at a public college in Battle Creek, Michigan. A state official actually had students jailed for handing out copies of the United States Constitution….

      In 2017, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education surveyed 450 colleges and universities across the country and found that 40 percent maintain speech codes that substantially infringe on constitutionally protected speech. Of the public colleges surveyed, which are bound by the First Amendment, fully one-third had written policies banning disfavored speech….. “

      It is going to be a very interesting fall. Seems like AG Sessions has declared war on those like ANTIFA who want to stop free speech.

        This is TOO delicious…
        May 9, 2016 Washington Post: Yes, the feds could pull North Carolina’s education funding for violating transgender civil rights
        “North Carolina receives more than $4 billion in federal education funding each year. Now the federal government is considering withholding that money because, the Justice Department says, the state has passed a law that violates the civil rights of transgender individuals by forcing them to use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates instead of their gender identity…

        They’ve done it before.

        The federal government withheld funds in the 1960s from more than 100 school districts in the south that refused desegregation, according to Gary Orfield, an education scholar and co-director of the Civil Rights Project at the University of California-Los Angeles.

        “That was the first time in American history that there had been a massive cutoff of federal aid funds,” Orfield said. “And it worked dramatically.”[…]”

          As a woman, a real one who was actually identified as one at birth by a medical doctor, I don’t want mentally ill men entering the women’s restroom. Transgender is overwhelmingly a mental illness and many of the men claiming this trans nonsense are those who still are sexually attracted to women and are sexually arroused by dressing in women’s clothing. Hardly the type of man you want following your wife or daughter into a room which typically only has one door serving as both exit or entrance. Sorry, I know this seems off topic as it relates to the NFL, but in my mind it is all part of the Leftist assault on everything normal and decent. It makes me beyond angry. The Left is no longer making any attempt to hide that they are actively at war with us.

        Re: college basketball corruption, Rush said that this is real, huge and we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Also it will severely impact NCAA football as well.

        I was at UCLA in the early 70s and a die-hard Bruins basketball fan. The corruption was probably mild then but we all heard it was driving Coach Wooden, a very honest and straight-laced man, crazy. It was mostly the alums, boosters, etc. – paying for the basketball players’ apartments, their girlfriends’ abortions, etc. What’s going on now is 100 times bigger, involving coaches (U of Louisville already canned theirs), scouts, recruiters, agents, etc., etc. I’d be shocked if school presidents – and in the UC system’s case, Regents – and possibly politicians aren’t involved.

        The NFL boycott will meet the college sports corruption scandal and who knows what will be left at the end? Sports is a microcosm of D.C. and the Deep State, if you think about it.

      The indulgence of college administrators toward angry campus radicals has not turned out well for the University of Missouri. Their enrollment is down significantly and they have several dormitories which are now vacant. This example might cause other universities to be wary of letting this happen to them.

    Sports in America have reached the saturation stage, and they are losing fans by the truckloads. Fans are not going to games and not viewing, sports are too watered down and too expensive for the common fan today. The big money has moved in and ruined all of the four major leagues. This latest flap of the anthem protests is a turning point I believe. NFL for one doubled down and are on the wrong side of the issue here and they know it. They are hiring crises management teams can you believe that. What they really need is some common sense and to get their heads examined.

      i.e., the inmates are running the asylum. Kaepernick and his cronies r going to keep it up, pulling one stunt right after another until they r all gone next season. Just reward for all of them.

  20. Urgent Action Needed. I just got off the phone with USAA. Called to cancel a small account. Told the young man that I will eventually cancel all others, but it takes some time to find new insurance, brokerage businesses etc. He thought that USAA hadn’t made up their minds about what to do yet, but I assured him that they did. Had him find the email they sent me that basically said “Stuff it; we support the NFL.” He was appalled as he is former military. He told me that they were closely monitoring client feedback and could possibly change their minds.

    So I urge everyone who is a member of USAA to contact them and let your views be known. If you are not a member, contact them anyway and let the know you will NEVER be one and will counsel your military family members to cancel all dealings with them. If we can get them to pull advertising dollars it would be a small victory.

      “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”

      I suspect the same applies to an insurance company.

      They have willingly revealed what they are (not) made of. Changing their policy/procedures because of money does not change their heart.

      You know something about USAA that you didn’t know before.

      They revealed it to you willingly.

      Believe it.

        I agree, Sharon.

        If they “change” it does NOT mean they changed. It means they know they effed up financially. That’s all.

        They still hold the same values and are just lying about it to save their cash flow.

        So….who cares?

    From Packer land here. Seeker. Thanks for reading. Have a nice night.

    This is the big game(s) of the year – Bears-Packers.
    I have a US flag fall picture in my display case and not my Packer flag.

    But how will recent events change the big game following and will Packers follow through with the linking arms together tonight in a “Unified Protest”. They are doing a unified protest not a protest to unify. There is a major difference.

    Trying to read mood changes. Grocery shopping before game – only two packer wearing people in store. Liquor store still of course has their packer flag displaying just below US flag. It is business.
    Two sports bars near me. I may check them during game time.

    Bottom line:
    1) The NFL is now controlled by Black Lives Matter.
    2) The owners are now controlled by Black Lives Matter.
    3) The majority black players have taken charge of the NFL at this point.
    4) It is no longer America NFL football. It is now BLM football. And they will do whatever they want.
    5) NFL will lose a lot of white patriotic viewers pretty quickly and also some black patriots as well. But the white patriots will flee quickly and be gone for a long long time. I am gone for good and on to other things.

    NFL leaders and owners have maybe 2-3 weeks to get this fixed or they lost it all to BLM control.

    –Coming later – Officials and NFL rules committee will be controlled by BLM – meaning they can break rules and not get called on it. In particular I am referring to game day uniform rules as required by league rules. And officials calling things during the game.

    NFL was not racist years ago but now it is the Black racist football league. They will turn it into ghetto ball. Like NBA has become. And white owners will be afraid of the players using the race card against them.

    I say totally end NFL, NBA, MLB. I do not need them at all, They just add to my local sales taxes – stadium building taxes that never end.
    .
    And for sure totally end all local tax breaks the above three always get to build their stadiums.

      And I agree with your assessment. there’s no walking this back and it’ll just get worse so time to need the whole charade now.

      Something will replace all this and it will start out on a waaaay better footing than these trash organizations.

      There is no redeeming here.

    Let’s polish off our college transcripts for Psych 101 and take a hard look at Colin Kapernick.
    Hey, if Yale ‘professionals’ can evaluate our President from afar (breaking Goldwater Rule) then why can’t we evaluate Colin via armchair?
    Colin Kapernick was adopted and raised by white, upper-middle class, Christian parents. Colin played college ball for Montana and enjoyed great success. Gee, when I think about racial strife, inner-city, black America, Montana is not the first state to come to mind. Colin was then drafted by San Fran and became a wealthy young man, living in the land of the nuts…. California. Again, Colin was successful and led San Fran to a Super Bowl victory.
    But that was several years ago.

    Imagine Colin in a locker room. As a quarterback, it would be assumed Colin would take a leadership position on the team.
    How on earth could Colin ever relate to other black players from the south, or inner-city Philly?
    Culturally, Colin was white.
    Colin never stuggled.
    Colin was not raised by a single welfare mom, with enormous struggles to face.
    Were Colin or his parents ever falsely persecuted/targeted/harrassed by police? I doubt it.
    So, Colin had no greivance story to sell.
    Did Colin make up a grievance story or adopt the greivances of the black community to ‘identify’ and invoke more empathy, making himself more important, gain more attention, make himself more honorable, re-paint himself as a sympathetic figure?
    Does this sound like Obama to you???
    PLUS, my husband was adopted and sometimes struggles with the emotions of abandonment. Does Colin secretly feel jealous of other black players, who may have had single, struggling, moms, but they loved their kids enough to “keep them”?
    Could it be that simple?
    That Colin started all of this, simply because he felt like he did not belong…. and was welcomed with open arms by a black radical muslim female DJ.

    It has occurred to me that many NFL players don’t think much of their mothers. Last Friday President Trump called only the players who refused to stand for Our National Anthem S.O.B.’s. He didn’t call all NFL players S.O.B.’s, only the ones who refused to stand.
    Sunday, many more NFL players refused to stand during Our National Anthem. I guess they feel they too are S.O.B.’s.

    So they knew in July that viewership was way down last year because of a J D Powers survey, and that it was because of the protests. So they all double down on the protests in September, just as the season is getting out of the gate. Brilliant marketing strategy.

    AFL – “Antifa Football League”

    The NFL has been co-opted.. The NFL does not want to change course.. All they are using are smoke and mirrors.. Ain’t gonna work..

    Now that the NFL has outed themselves and are on the precipice.. Sir Trump played them just like he has played Congress.. He made the rats rat out themselves for all to see.. Another Leftist Front exposed.. And this is a big one in the Culture War..

    At this point it will now require a head on a pike for the fans to forgive the NFL.. It will also require a hand over heart or a salute to the Flag and Anthem.. just standing will not be good enough..

    Tonights game and the games this Sunday will be the “Point of No Return” for the NFL. Don’t get your hopes up though.. Leftists never give up their unicorn agenda – they would rather burn the whole thing down..

    This should be a wakeup call to sports and the entertainment industry. DO NOT put your cause above the cause that is the United States of America. There are many that support the real issue, whatever the issue is. When you put your cause above that of the overall goodness that is America, you’re going to lose significant support. As it should.

    The other issue is that of captive audiences. If the NFL players want to get together and hold a press conference or protest off the field, they’d have a lot of support. When they put this on full display at a football game, what are the fans supposed to do? Sit there and take it? Continue paying hundreds of dollars for tickets to a game to escape their daily grind only to be insulted, preached at and called deplorable? The people advising these sports figures, movie figures and music industry folks are giving them bad advice. The Average Americans voice is their wallet.
