With more than 200 NFL players kneeling during the national anthem on Sunday following President Donald Trump’s comments criticizing players who disrespect our flag, one NFL owner had enough.
The Green Bay Packers are the only community-owned NFL franchise, meaning that individual shareholders are, by definition, owners of the organization. That means ordinary Americans — not the multimillionaires and billionaires that make up the rest of the NFL ownership cartel — have a voice too. And that voice is crystal clear.
One Packers shareholder spoke to the Daily Caller on Monday to express his supreme frustration with players protesting the anthem.
“I am f****ing livid right now,” he said. “I see this s**t and I lose my mind. It needs to end immediately.”
The man made it very clear he was tired of having to see sports infused with politics, and that if players continue to disrespect the flag and anthem, he could be done with the sport altogether. And as unbelievable as it sounds, he was no doubt speaking for millions of Americans too.
“I’ll give up football completely and find something else to do with my time if this continues,” he said.
The irony of millionaire athletes protesting the same flag and country that gives them the opportunity to make such a handsome living is incredible.
The Packers shareholder told The Daily Caller that the liberal narrative of injecting identity politics and race into everything has disgusted huge parts of the electorate — and is exactly why Trump is president.
“This horse s**t must end. These players are so out of touch. They disrespect our flag and then wonder why Trump won. It’s a no-brainer. This is so disrespectful,” he said.
He said the NFL will continue to lose its fans and viewers if the protests continue, suggesting more and more Americans will simply stop watching players who display such un-American stances.
“People will run to college football over the NFL in droves if these protests continue,” the man said.
According to Reuters, 58 percent of the American electorate believe “professional athletes should be required to stand during the national anthem at sporting events.”
Players kneeling during national anthem is not only disrespectful to our nation’s flag but to all the brave men and women who died for all of our freedoms.
And as this Packers owner put it, “It needs to end immediately.”
