Veterans Day Weekend - Boycott NFL
 
For those of you who were insulted by the NFL players actions in regards to the National Anthem; here is something you can do to voice your opinion. It is totally contradictory to complain about the players kneeling, sitting or not being present for the National Anthem and continue to support the NFL. After all, the fans do support the players salaries! Veterans are asking for a National boycott of the NFL on Sunday November 12th, Veterans Day Weekend. Boycott all NFL football telecasts, ticket holders should not attend any games; let the teams play in empty stadiums. Pass this post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin. Continue with the weekly boycott of televised games.

I hope not, but I already started my boycott this season. I hope 90% of the vets feel the same.

Worry not. The NFL boycott is in full force. This has nothing to do with the military actually. This is all about the very fabric of our nation. You do not shit on the anthem, or the flag. Well, you can if you're a communist piece of shit, like this guy.

And here's Dave with the timely "Is snot". Good job Dave for the comedic relief. :Jeff '79:

As a life long "Packer Backer" and owner of a few shares in the Packer's organization I will boycott my team's games until ALL of the players stand for the playing of the National Anthem. And, if I boycott my team's games I must also boycott all the other NFL games.

I did not watch last night's game against the Bears which is the longest running rivalry in the entire NFL. The minute that I saw that Kevin King, Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks sitting on their overpaid, fat fundaments I switched to an old NCIS replay.

I agree that the players have the right to protest what they view as "oppression of people of color" (whatever that means) on their own time - just not while they are supposed to be preparing for or playing football for which the team (me) pays them. Let them protest on their own time and I will have no problem with this.

Damn, talk about career suicide. He's got a long life of fry cooking ahead of him.

I have given up on the NFL until they start respecting our flag and country.

You need to get out more.
