This shocking move proves the NFL thinks you’re stupid

NFL fans were outraged when players across the league protested during the national anthem.

When fans started burning gear, season tickets, and booing their home teams, you’d think players would get the message and go back to playing football.

That’s what makes this announcement from the Green Bay Packers players about tonight’s game so shocking.

In their home game against the Chicago Bears tonight, Green Bay players plan to continue their protests during the national anthem.

In a statement issued ahead of the game, they’ve announced their intention for players, coaches, and staff to lock arms during the national anthem.



While this isn’t kneeling, the statement shows Green Bay’s true intentions to continue the very same anti-American protests started by Colin Kaepernick in 2016.

They’ve asked fans to do the same, “for those who have been unjustly treated, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly.”

The Packers – and the NFL at large – must think their fans are stupid.

Anyone watching can clearly see these players are locking arms against the majority of their fans – American patriots who are upset with their protests during the national anthem.

Their public statement is little more than the Black Lives Matter propaganda that’s angered so many.

Despite TV networks refusing to show images of angry fans, the NFL can’t hide the fact its ratings are dropping. So long as football teams like the Packers want to smack their fans in the face with anti-Americanism, it will continue.

The fundamental problem is the continued act of protesting our country during the national anthem, showing disrespect for our flag and our men and women in uniform.

The Green Bay Press Gazette highlights the feelings of some loyal Packers:

“I am so ashamed of and appalled by the ignorance of any NFL player who would dare disgrace our Stars and Stripes or the memory of hundreds of thousands of fallen U.S. heroes who paid with their lives so that we may live free,” said Steven Tiefenthaler, a native of Brookfield who now lives in San Antonio. Tiefenthaler is a Packers shareholder and 20-year U.S. Air Force veteran.

Tiefenthaler said he was humbled by once flying the remains of American servicemen to the states, an experience that stays with him.

“My allegiance to our American flag and to our national anthem will always stand far above any loyalty to the NFL or to the Green Bay Packers organization,” he said.

Laura Hapke, a La Crosse native now living in Orange, Calif., said the Packers were the last team she expected to do what they did Sunday.
….
“If they come out and say they are more into politics than patriotism, I’ll have to rethink it,” she said. “It will break my heart, but I’ll have to rethink it.”
….
“I watch football to watch football. This [is] an entertainment business. Bringing in the drama and political rhetoric to the job is not entertaining,” said Herb Jabs of Mt. Horeb. “I think the league underestimates the tolerance of normal fans who seek out football to get a break from the daily barrage of rhetoric of political division.”



Many football fans just want the players to leave politics out of the game.

If players want to protest outside of the stadium, there likely wouldn’t be such an outburst.

Instead, what the anthem protests are really about is about disrespecting our flag and our country.

And for those who would say otherwise, just look at this quote from Colin Kaepernick in August 2016:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Pretty much ends the debate over what these anti-American protests are about, doesn’t it?

So will you be watching the game tonight?

  1. I stopped watching NFL games last year for the most part. Live in Wisconsin and was a big Packer fan. Not anymore. Thought Aaron Rogers was smart enough to leave politics out of football, but that thought was obviously wrong. I too am an 11 year Navy vet and have 25 years in public safety service. The heck with the NFL. Protest all you want but not with the flag or anthem!

  2. I WAS a packers fan, did not watch the game. I heard it rained there pretty hard and was LIGHTNING, hmmmmm, a sign maybe GOD is not pleased?

  3. A lot of comments point out that the protesting is angering and turning off a lot of NFL and sports fans. While this just might be true, it should be noted that it is also alienating and angering a whole lot of people not in the least bit interested in the NFL or any sports for that matter. It seems the protesting is universally seen to be way out of line and will have repercussions way beyond only sports enthusiasts.

  4. Amen, John Martinez. Sad to see so many don’t want to know the Truth and be saved. They’re kind of freedom is not being free! No longer a football watcher.

  5. I have washed my hands of the NFL…The fact that the NFL powers that be saw no reason to penalize Beckem’s TD celebration in the end zone, going down on all fours with leg lifted imitating ad dog urinating to disrespect the opposing team, tells me all I need to know about the credibility of the NFL and their phony outrage….for what?…to support phony grievances of millionaire crybabies who’ve been coddled and pampered since high school just because they play a silly game better than their peers. They trample on our anthem, our flag, our country, “like sheep led to slaughter” biting the hand that feeds them—the very country that gave them every opportunity to succeed and prosper using their “skills” at playing a game, their dream job, for a living. I challenge each and every one of those players to go try and find the same opportunities anywhere else on the planet. They’d soon be taking a knee in short order to thank God that they live, work and prosper in the United States of America. As for me, I’ll be tuning in to the PGA Tour President’s Cup Tournament this weekend. Now, that’s a sports organization that really showcases talent AND is a class act, who’s players seem grateful for the opportunity to live and prosper in the USA, and understand the importance of respecting and honoring our anthem, our flag, our country, and the men and women who put everything on the line to protect the same. NFL—Stupid is as Stupid does.

  6. These IDIOT Childish stupid kids, they must be taught a lesson, this is America, you have the right to protest and say as you want but to disrespect the flag and our nation is another matter its stupid and they will fall like all the other Lib-A-Tick IDIOTS>

    • Jason-More than anything, they have to be “taught actions have consequences”; that said, they will then accuse US of being “racist” for proving it to them. They’re like 5th graders -they learned and new word (racist) and they can’t let it go.

  7. Charlie Manson would be so happy, Barry Soterro, aka Barrack Hussain Osama, pulled it off. A race war black vrs White, Never seen so much hate, but thats what Manson wanted, Barry pulled it off. Your blind and ignorant if you can’t see it….Seek salvation while you still can. Time is not on ur side…

    • Tim’s right! They’ll still be kneeling against everything America stands for. Wonder is the police will guard these jerks. Most of them are criminals anyway.

  8. I am One of many men and women who were willing to die to protect this country so spoil brats can have there on way and do and say what is on there minds But I draw the line when it comes to burning the flag waling on the flag and disrespect for or counry and those that don’t like america can leave.

    • Thank you for your service. I stand corrected in my reply to Brian Williams that “we have no heroes any more”. We DO have heroes and they are you, he, and all our brave men and women who put everything on the line to protect us and our beloved Country! God Bless America!

      • Katherine, we do still have many, many heroes, but we hardly ever know they are there, because they remain quiet and unobtrusive; may God bless them all and may we continue to honor all of them. When you have a chance, go to youtube and type in “Angel Flight” – -it will give you new perspective and break your heart at the same time. Also do some research on “Honor Flight”, it will kindle something in your heart you may never have felt before, or it will increase your pride, in our honored military veterans.. I have witnessed one of those flight, departing a major airport, in my old home state of NH- -it is generally hosted and assisted by the local American Legion; they provide the marching band, flags and military escort and assist elderly and disabled veterans in boarding and departure to DC, where they are able to visit war memorials and Arlington National Cemetery, to honor their fallen comrades. For some of them, it is the first time they have been able to make this journey and for many, it is their last chance, to “honor them and say farewell”. Sorry, I didn’t mean to ramble!

  9. I’m a 77 yr. Old veteran of the 82nd & 101st Airborne Divisions.
    I’ve was a Green Bay Packers fan since Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr, Paul Horning & etc.
    No more, I’m finished forever more…& the NFL.

    • I agree…I venture to guess that Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr would never participate . They, and many of their contemporaries in football, were a class act. Sorry to say, we have no heroes any more. Thank you for your service.

    • I’m a 87 year old veteran. USMC Korea ’52. My oldest brother was killed in the battle for Iwo Jima WW2 in 1945. ( He was 20 years old).I was a Pittsburgh Steelers fan / Pirates fan since 1945. If those pampered millionaires can express their civil “rights”,and not think about their corresponding “responsibilities”to their fans, and their country, it is my “right” to stop supporting the NFL and probably baseball also.

    • While I am not a sports fan myself (football is boring to watch and baseball is even boring to play), I think you statement, “Most people that pay close attention to sports, rarely know anything else that’s going on in the world around them.”, is unfair. While I have known many avid sports fans who are generally uninformed, I have know others who were extremely current and engaged in the world in general.

      • I am an avid college football fan, the NFL, not. I’m also a member of Mensa USA and a Princinct chairman for my county Republican Party. My family has had a member in the military from the Revolutionary War to Me in the Navy during Vietnam Nam. Maybe I’m the exception that proves your rule though, I think, there are more of us than you realize. Of course, I’m from Texas, where football is very popular.

    • You r right a bunch kid over pay for little work if u could call it work I do not support any pro. Sport waste of time. I stand for god and kneel to pray

  10. I’m done with football this year, if they get back to honoring the flag and setting a role model for people to be proud of I might start watching and supporting them next year. USAF SMSGT RET

    • I’m with you. Thank you for your service. The PGA Tour President’s Cup Tournament is on this weekend,and they DO respect the flag, the anthem, the Country and the men and women who put everything on the line to protect us. And THESE guys ARE good! It’s an exciting competition—check it out

      • Maybe they don’t show respect for the flag and our country because there are many countries represented but, they don’t disrespect the Country.

  11. I HAVE A TEE-SHIRT THAT STATES,” I STAND FOR THE FLAG AND KNEEL AT THE CROSS”
    I MEAN THOSE WORDS I FOUGHT FOR THE FLAG, AND THE FREEDOM OF AMERICA. I DO NOT AND WILL NOT TOLERATE THE CRAP THAT IS GOING ON IN THE NON AMERICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE!

  12. It was nice pod them to release this statement ahead of time. It will save all the people the trouble of going to the stadium or tuning in on tv to see what they do – before changing channels. These players mistakenly forgot who pays for the NFL – ALL of the money come from the fans – so go ahead and piss them off you idiots – it’s your money flying away.I wonder how players will feel if their salaries are only cut in half – let alone how much more it could turn out to be.
    I have been reading these message boards all week and if people posting mean what they say and stick to it – the NFL has an awful lot to worry about.

  13. Most NFL players have went from heroes to zeros to most NFL Fans. They won’t get anymore of my money, nor will their sponsors. I think I might just go fishing Sunday afternoon.

    • The very thing there making fools of them selves ,when you think about it the MEN AND WOMEN FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM DESERVES THE SALARY THEY GET AND THEY SHOULD GET A MILITARILY SALARY.
      THINK ABOUT WITCH ONE IS THE MOST REWARDING AND CARING. THERE GIVING THERE LIVES EVERY DAY SO THESES ASS HOLS CAN THROW A PIG SKIN ACROSS A FIELD AND GET BIG PAY CHECKS.
      NEEDS TO BE TURNED AROUND ,DON’T YOU THINK. MOST OF THE FOOT BALL PLAYERS ARE MENTALITY INCOMPETENT, AND IN (MOST) CASES THAT IS ALL THERE CABLE OF DOING.
      I THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE TO BE CALLED INTO THE SERVICE FOR ACTIVE DUTY.FOR NOT LESS THAN 4 YEARS. THEN LET THEM SEE WHY WERE SO ANGRY OF THERE CHILD LIKE OVER PLAYED ACTION.
      ANGRY AS A PIT BULL THAT HASN’T EATEN IN 3 DAYS.

  14. While I am a Bears fan, I am NOT-repeat, NOT-an NFL fan! With all the issues they’re facing-not to mention a commissioner who don’t care who wins the Stooper Bowl as long as it’s the Giants-I hope the league doesn’t make it to 2019-year 100.

    • You would think a team sport like football and the NFL would understand what it means to be a part of a team. How to encourage a team mate, how to bring the best out of Them. However Roger Goodell thinks his protest will unite the people. I don’t know about you but I would say he gets an F in psychology and social skills. If you ask me I’m not quit sure how he got the job as the commissioner. I know 3rd graders smarter than him. 7 out of 10 third graders that were asked said they would have made a rule to make the NFL players stand.
