Some Folks Have Come to Despise the NFL...

For fans who follow the sport, most of this will be a simple reminder of things you already know. For the rest, it's a wake-up call:

In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling before each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take it off.
In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure "eye black for breast cancer awareness.

In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem..).

In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression. It seems quite clear based on these facts that the NFL has taken a position against any action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue:

For God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic violence, for cops killed arbitrarily, for being cops, or for the Memory of 9/11...

BUT they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our National Flag, our National Anthem, for America , and for the American People, if it will help mollify a particular Group and its supporters. That is who and what the NFL now has shown itself to be.

Pass this post along to all your friends and family, if you believe it worthy of sharing. Honor our military; too many of whom have come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.


  1. The NFL? How about the whole stinking lot of professional athletes and the owners and staff that go along with this shiit.
    The intent is not to promote BLM or anything of the sort. The intent is to destroy anything that people might feel or become unified by or in, regardless of individuals particular politics. Sports, religion and especially any mutual belief in the free exchange of ideas and the freedoms of free individuals in a free society are all targets for destruction.

    1. Amen! I just saw a disgusting PSA here in Michigulag with all the Pro sports coaches individually saying Mask Up, Michigan! These Basturds killed all the sports on purpose by supporting this Hoax. College athletics are screwed, and the Univ. Foundations are going to tank when rich people find other places to donate their $$$$.

  2. I've enjoyed NFL football since the mid 60's. But several years ago, I knew there was something wrong when they rejected this Super Bowl commercial:

    And now, supporting the Communist BLM, I'm done! --Ron W
