Default 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.

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.

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

Ya, I stand for the national anthem and think that it is disrespectful for those idiots who don't.
That being said.... Why people make such a stink over what is happening in the NFL is beyond me.
Let them do it and let the cards fall where they will.
Boycott that day of NFL football??? Ya right... If you're a fan, it just ain't happening, and if you're not and you're saying that you will? WGAFF about them?
Advertisers??? LOL!!!
Money talks and Bullsh!t walks....
At this point it's not about disrespecting the country. It's just the new forum du jour to get a peaceful protest off. It's a fad that will go by the wayside with the quickness.

Kaepernick Gives Money To Cop Killer Fund | The Daily Caller

The "hero" who started it all donates money to a charity honoring a cop killer.

Quote:

Colin Kaepernick donated $25,000 to a foundation honoring a convicted cop killer.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback donated the money to the foundation Assata’s Daughter’s, according to The Daily Mail.

They reported in part:

Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been revealed.

Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughter’s, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge.

Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.

There is next to no chance an NFL team will ever sign Kaepernick after this revelation. He was already radioactive among the fanbase because of his national anthem protests, and donating to the foundation that honors a convicted cop killer is not going to help his reputation.

This will likely be the final nail to close Kaepernick’s hopes of returning to the NFL.

I don't see you jumping on a plane headed for Rica to help out! Instead your punching keys on a keyboard as well! Voicing your negative opinion as well.



Look EVERYONE
We all have freedom of speech. We have the right to protest at an NFL game.
We also have the right to not watch NFL games where people are protesting.

And once again I have a move a thread to P&R because of peeps being negative to each other! And that pisses me off!

I guess you forgot to move a few then, because this ain't the only one.
So much for free speech !
