Thousands and thousands of American patriots have boycotted the NFL this year, and I’m proud to say that I’m one of them. Two years ago I was an NFL fanatic, spending all day every Sunday watching the NFL. Last year I was so involved with the election that I probably only watched a few hours every Sunday. This year I have not watched a single game, and you know what? I don’t miss it!
I’m sure there are many thousands of people out there, like me, who will never fully embrace the NFL again. I like like college football better now.
Just when you thought the NFL couldn’t do anymore to hurt themselves, news comes out this morning that the NFL is refusing to run a television ad for a veteran’s group, urging people to stand for the National Anthem.
This is so stupid that you couldn’t even make something this stupid up!
NFL rejects veterans group’s Super Bowl ad urging people to stand for the anthem
Fox News reports:
The National Football League has rejected a Super Bowl advertisement from American Veterans urging people to stand for the national anthem.
The nation’s largest veterans service organization had been invited by the NFL to place an ad in the Super Bowl LII program. AMVET’s advertisement included a two-word message – “#PleaseStand.” Click here to see the ad.
“It’s a simple, polite request that represents the sentiment of our membership, particularly those whose missing or paralyzed limbs preclude standing,” wrote National Commander Marion Polk in a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
American Veterans accused the NFL of outright censorship by rejecting the advertisement
The NFL is lost in their self inflated bubble. They have no idea what the majority of American's believe, nor do they care. NFL rejects veterans group's Super Bowl ad urging people to stand for the anthem https://t.co/GRDatDzEdh #FoxNews
