When the NFL refused to require players to stand for the national anthem, many fans were dismayed.
Then when it was announced the NFL struck a deal with protesting players to fund so-called “social justice” organizations, fans were furious.
And the NFL’s latest move will leave many questioning just where their ticket and merchandise money is going.
NFL owners are set to finalize the $89 million package to appease the coddled millionaire athletes who disrespected the flag and America’s men and women in uniform.
The Washington Times reports:
The package’s $25 million for former Obama administration figure Van Jones and his left-wing Dream Corps isn’t likely to sit well with conservatives already fed up with the league’s politics.
According to the NFL, the unprecedented $89 million package — the biggest topic on the agenda for the annual owners meetings that begin Sunday in Orlando, Florida, — includes no stipulation that players must stand before games for the national anthem.
“There will be discussion on social responsibility matters. As has been reported, the league already set aside funds for these issues,” said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. “It’s anticipated that there would be a vote next week for the clubs to provide funds from the team level.”
He added, “Separately, no vote is expected concerning game-day anthem protocols.”
In addition to the $25 million going to Van Jones, much of the other money is expected to go to “resistance” organizations with ties to George Soros.
Roger Goodell’s refusal to nip the anthem protests in the bud is costing the league dearly.
Many football fans have given up on the NFL altogether.
A number of Renewed Right’s readers have mentioned they prefer watching college football these days, given that players are in it for the love of the game, rather than just playing for a paycheck.
