NFL Boycott Intensifies On Veterans Day Weekend After NFL Announces No Change To Anthem Policy

JD Sun, 11/12/2017 - 17:33

The NFL announced Saturday that there isn’t going to be any change to its national anthem policy, despite an escalating boycott of games over Veterans Day weekend.

The Facebook page “Boycott the NFL” has asked all its followers to celebrate Veterans Day weekend by refusing to watch NFL games “in solidarity with veterans around the country,” given that players are still engaging in national anthem protests and NFL policy remains the same, The Washington Times reports.

Conservative watchdog group 2ndVote also weighed in, asking all of its supporters to #STANDwithVets and turn off NFL games to send a message to the NFL, advertisers and TV networks.

...IT WAS THE DIRTY NFL WHICH POLITICIZED FOOTBALL!!!

In 2009, the war-loving military (in an attempt to use pro football as a recruiting tool) offered the NFL MILLIONS of dollars to force players out of their locker rooms and stand at attention during the anthem.

So the NFL (greedy for more and more money) took the military up on their offer and made new rules forcing players to comply.

But no one should be FORCED to stand for something they may not believe in or that they have issues with.

I fully support Kaepernick and his decision.

I'm probably the only white guy in the country who does support him.

If the NFL wants this problem to go away then they should quit being a TOOL for the military which wants more recruits to go over to the Middle East and Africa to kill people who never did anything to this country.

I only wish one of the NFL players would kneel in protest of THAT to expose the NFL and military collusion.
