Following Thanksgiving, some NFL players still wouldn’t quit the idea of protesting the national anthem, so they took the knee again, thus provoking a massive outrage in fans.

The entire matter escalated to the point where football stadiums were left half-empty, while ratings continued dropping.

Just take a look at the San Fransisco 49ers game against the Seattle Seahawks. The stadium is downright…well, said:

The same thing happened during the Indiana Colts -Tennessee Titans game.

Then, the same issue occurred at the MetLife stadium in New Jersey, Paul Brown Stadium in Cincy, Ohio, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

This poses a serious threat to NFL’s future and booming business. Americans made the call not to tolerate any more of the nonsense prior to NFL games, torching fan sports equipment and boycotting the league in general. This also seems to be an issue that isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

ESPN reported that on Thanksgiving day, Los Angeles Chargers tackle Russell Okung raised his fist during the national anthem.

NFL players don’t seem to mind this development and continued to protests, with New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon kneeling to the anthem prior to their game.

One of NFL’s bright solutions for the issue was to keep players inside their locker rooms during the anthem, but the move has led them to a wall.

They also vowed to sanction all protesters- a decision that has yet to be enforced.

One of the most vocal ‘protesters’ of the protests is, naturally, President Donald Trump:

Trump has a point- the entire thing is not only hurting the country but puts its credibility into question.
