Will deplorables make the NFL great again?

The NFL took a major hit after players began their anti-American anthem protests.

The Liberal media was all on one side, while fans were on the other.

But the league just realized they forgot one key thing . . .

Football is an integral part of life for many Americans.

But while many Americans love football, there are two things they care more about: God and Country.

And when NFL players protested during the anthem, they were asking football fans to choose between the NFL, and their country.



For most patriotic fans, it was an easy choice.

These fans overlap strongly with Trump’s base, which the NFL clearly forgot.

To make things worse for the NFL, Hillary’s announcement that she supports the protests likely sounded the death-knell for their anti-American display.

Having someone so truly divisive and despised as Hillary voice her support for your efforts is enough to take the wind out of any movement’s sails.

Not only that, but NFL coaching legend Mike Ditka strongly condemned the anthem protestors by saying:

“If you don’t respect our country, then you shouldn’t be in this country playing football. Go to another country and play football. If you had to go somewhere else and try to play the sport, you wouldn’t have a job. … If you don’t respect this flag and this country, then you don’t know what this is all about. I would say, adios.”

And then finally, after Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones and Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross announced they would bench players who protest during the anthem, it appears change is coming.

Roger Goodell just sent a letter to all 32 NFL teams signaling the end is near.



In it he states:

“The current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.
….
“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us.”

At an owners meeting on October 17-18, reports indicate the NFL is expected to implement a policy that would require players to stand during the national anthem.

The current manual states that players “should” stand, rather than “must,” and therefore was interpreted as a suggestion by players, rather than a requirement.

What are your thoughts about all this?

If the NFL does put an end to the anthem protests, would you go back to watching?

  1. How many Black atheletes have you seen helping in the Black areas
    of the cities. they make millions and don’t spend a dime on poor
    black childern. when the NFL dies and the millions disapier,
    then they will be sorry.

  2. I see it starting up again, and I remember Toby Keith’s song Courtesy of the Red White and Blue…

    So as far as I am concerned they can just fold up shop, take their itty bitty balls and just go home.
    Because Americans won’t stand for another shucker punch from the back.

    Plitical Correcness has run amok too long.. time to rein it in and back The Country not just the whiny snowflakes of the Black Movements because there are more then just two colors.. and TEAN is American. Kneel before the Cross but Stand for the Flag, Anthem and Pledge. that’s if the racist players can remember them..

  3. Agree 100%…. and I don’t give a damn if somebody call me a racist… because is not a question of race, is about like you said integration and participation… What we have now in the sports looks to me like Black Supremacism…. Why?…
    Must finish, and must finish now…

  4. I think we need more “diversity” on ALL teams to reflect the racial make up
    of the country! Integration is what we need. Maybe a lot LESS black faces on these teams and more
    Asian, Latino, and Caucasian faces. You know that would be “fair”, since everything has to be fair. Before you balk at the suggestion, what if all the black faces were white faces, THAT would be racist
    wouldn’t it?

  5. The athletes of the NFL must stand properly and salute the flag and the national anthem (NO LINKING OF ARMS as this creates linkage to their political views that caused the decline of the NFL and NOT TO INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE with anything else). It will take a long while to earn the NFL Fan’s respect back. Kaepernick with his cops-as-pigs socks and other un-American symbols is a very poor example to emulate.

  6. They (the Athletes) should stand and salute the flag properly (NO LINKING OF HANDS as to still try to create linkage to their protest issues) and do it right. Linking of arms doesn’t fool us. It is going to take a while to earn that trust back of the fans they betrayed.

  7. Blacks used to only make up 30% of the lineup in the NFL. They now make up 70%. That was very serious error on the part of the NFL teams. Unless they replace their sullen, anti-American, anti-White players with patriotic white players, they’ll be screwed forever because the tolerance of Americans for BS is ZERO, and blacks can’t seem to control their inclinations to create trouble!

  8. I have been a Steeler fan for years. I am now nearing 81. I will not watch another Professional Game. I am a Veteran, and most men in my family have served our Country with PRIDE, starting with one of my GreatFather that served in the Revolutionary War.

  9. I feel that there are several things that need to be worked out, like all of the government money that they get. The fact that they contribute to liberal campaigns, that should be done personally [thru the players org.]. One thing these guys need to realize is that we all have to follow laws our whole lives, and they do too. Once they become rich they think they are above the law, so they go out and do stupid things that get them in trouble. The law is the LAW.
