The NFL Is Happy to Insult America, Until It Impacts Their Bank Accounts — Reality Check
Over the past two seasons, the NFL, and its players, have disrespected the National Anthem, the Flag, the military and the citizens of the USA, (and have not apologized for doing so), by kneeling during the Anthem, or using other gestures inappropriate to respecting the Anthem. Roger Goodell, the Commissioner of the NFL, recently stated that ALL players should stand while the Anthem is being played. He did not say they must. Nor did he apologize to the nation for the lack of respect of the Anthem by the players, coaches and, in at least one case, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, who knelt in solidarity with his players.
Now, the NFL is reeling from the boycott against them. Their bottom line is suffering, and they feel the monetary effects of their actions, yet no apology has been forthcoming. In my humble opinion, the NFL and its players should suffer the effects of the boycott until ALL the players, coaches, owners and the Commissioner apologize to the American people.
