NFL BOYCOTT IN FULL FORCE: Empty Seats During Week 6 Show Just How Powerful It Is

The NFL players' protests are still in full force against the national anthem and President Donald Trump, however, fans have fired back at the league for not taking proper action, and as a result ticket sales have been declining fast.

The NFL used to be the most popular sports league in the country, but things are quickly changing thanks to the behavior of these professional athletes.

By kneeling during the national anthem, these players are trying to make themselves look like heroes. But NFL fans are outraged and have made it clear that they agree with President Trump.

We stand with the true Heroes, not a bunch of rich, arrogant, ungrateful, anti-American brats.

According to ijr:

As more and more football players have protested during the national anthem and President Donald Trump has spoken out against them, fans have fired back at the National Football League for not taking action by boycotting, which has resulted in ticket sales plummeting.

Pictures of empty stadiums are the best way to see just how powerful the boycott truly is.

Denver Broncos Announce End of Anthem Demonstrations And It Will Make Americans PROUD

The Denver Broncos have had enough with the national anthem protests and want to take the politics out of football.

The NFL Broncos announced that they will, together as a team, stand on Sunday for the national anthem, instead of dismantling the flag and our historical icon that brings us together as a nation.

They believe in showing respect together, and understand how the anthem brings great honor the country and its veterans deserve.

The 52-players on the team were extremely passionate about their thoughts and created a joint statement about their actions last week.

Explaining that their actions were  “in no way a protest of the military, the flag or those who keep us safe.”

The statement from the NFL players came a few days after Broncos executive John Elway – who led the team to a Superbowl victory as its quarterback in 1997 – said he believes in standing for the anthem.

“Take the politics out of football,” Elway said.

The statement created by the team also had some explanation about their demonstrations from the previous week:

“Last week, members of our team joined their brothers around the NFL in a powerful display of unity. As controversial as it appeared, we needed to show our collective strength and resolve,” the Broncos said.

Reported by insiderfoxnews:

The team said its locker room is very diverse, but that being members of the same squad unite them as a team.

“No matter how divisive some comments and issues can be, nothing should get in the way of that,” the team said, appearing to reference President Trump's comments in Alabama last week.


Outside linebacker Von Miller, who helped lead the team's demonstrations last week, said after that game that Trump “assaulted” their freedom of speech, and that “we had to do something.”

Football Coach Fired for Kneeling in Prayer SLAMS the NFL

Every movement liberals deign to support maintains hypocrisy which is evident seeing as NFL players can kneel in protest while Christians are fired for doing the same in prayer.

Joe Kennedy

Before the NFL controversy stole the American airwaves one coach for a High School football team was fired for practicing the same American ‘rights' these entitled NFL players are privileged enough to portray while claiming oppression.

Joe Kennedy is a devote Christian who openly displayed his love and guidance from Jesus by praying before football events to which he received walking papers from the school board. Now in light of NFL protesters being supported by the liberal media, Joe Kennedy wants answers to why it's ok for them and not for him?

Via Breitbart:

The Washington state high school football coach who was suspended and later fired for kneeling in prayer after each game is demanding the same rights as NFL players who kneel in protest before games.

“I can’t wrap my brain around it,” Kennedy said on Fox News Channel’s “The Story.” “I’m a Marine. I just want the same rights as everybody else.”

Host Martha MacCallum noted how former NFL player Tim Tebow was mocked for praying on the field, and Kennedy added that he admired Tebow because “stood up for what he believed in.”

“Everyone has difference of opinion. Being a Marine, we fought to defend [these] rights,” he said.

This is the response Americans have for over privileged NFL players who believe that somehow their actions put them above not only the law, but above other Americans who didn't receive the same acceptance because they aren't famous football players.

For Anyone Who Argued Colin Kaepernick’s Protest Was NOT Against the Flag and Country, See His Latest Statement

Since the very first time ex-San Francisco 49er’s quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, decided to take a knee for the national anthem, he has insisted he was “in no way” disrespecting the American flag or his country…

Are you sure about that Mr. Kaepernick?

I know there are more than a few people and fans out there who will argue otherwise.

Caption this…..

His reply to his initial protest display was that he knelt in response to the “systemic oppression against people of color [and] police brutality.”

President Trump’s response on the other hand is on a whole other ball field…

Former NFL player, Colin Kaepernick is sticking strong to his beliefs that he is not bashing the flag by kneeling. He honestly didn’t even get much media attention when it first happened he confirmed himself during an interview with the NFL.com:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Adding:

“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Kaepernick bluntly stated, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag” in August 2016, after he knelt during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

According to IJR:

Kaepernick's kneeling has sparked a national divide amongst fans all around the US.

Even getting President Trump involved when he stated team owners should fire those “sons of b*****s” who kneel.

The president also commented on a Monday night football game in which players knelt before the national anthem. When the Dallas Cowboys knelt before the national anthem, Trump said, they provoked “great anger” and the “loudest” booing he's “ever heard”:

“I think that it's always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem, and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Green Bay Packers Stadium Errupsts during NFL Protest ‘USA USA’

Watch the badass moment where Fans at Lambeau Field chant “USA! USA!” as unpatriotic players and coaches lock arms in protest during the national anthem.

Delusional Mainstream Media Outlets Claim Standing for the National Anthem Promotes White Supremacy. Seriously?

Hysteria surrounding NFL players and the national anthem reaches all time high as standing is now likened to white supremacy.

Every liberal celebrity and journalist in America has decided that the NFL controversy is their platform to express what ever misconception happens to be rolling around the empty space designed to contain knowledge and understanding. MSNBC host Joy Reid explained the relationship between Christians and NFL kneeling by suggesting any offended Christian is a hypocrite, and now Huff Post columnist Jesse Benn has added ‘White Privilege' to the mix.

Jesse Benn is an extreme left columnist who pens insanity that the Huffington Post apparently decides to publish despite any factual reporting being present. Clearly quailty and journalistic integrity don't fall in the list of must haves when employing liberal reporters.

Previously Jesse Benn expressed sentiments of  Republican executions being acceptable when a political baseball practice turned nearly fatal after a Republican lawmaker was shot.

Jesse Benn

Benn tweeted “What’s more harmful : Putting millions already on the margins more at-risk via draconian policies, or shooting a racist lawmaker in the hip?”

Jesse Benn

Benn went on to actually provide intellectual guidance for any such future attempts.

Jesse Benn

Clearly Jesse Benn has radical political beliefs and condones open violence and brutality against those who have a differing view, therefore it comes as no shock that Benn's recent blog regarding the NFL has standing for the national anthem being equivalent to the support of white supremacy.

Via Breitbart:

On September 25, extreme leftist Jesse Benn fired up another controversial column, this time insisting that the number of white athletes who remained standing for the national anthem was “particularly illustrative moment in white privilege.”

Benn was shocked that white people do (his emphasis) think the American flag represents “freedom, liberty and whatever other amorphous American values one might ascribe these symbols.” Making it shocking and non-nonsensical, in Benn’s view, do think that standing for the anthem “would be disrespectful to the privileges a white supremacist nation affords them.”

The HuffPo extremist went on to knock the “fairytale we Americans tell ourselves” that our soldiers fight for freedom. He then slammed American soldiers as tools of “imperial conquest” and ridiculed Americans for wallowing in their “blah blah blah patriotism” as well as for assuming that America is a “promise fulfilled.”

In comparison, does that mean that standing for any other countries anthem is in support of their cultural supremacy? Or does this fallacy only equate to white people as per usual?

Charles Barkley’s Heated Take on NFL and National Anthem Protesters

Introducing another former professional athlete who has something to say about President Trump’s actions towards the NFL protests: Mr. Charles Barkley.

Former NBA player Charles Barkley has decided to weigh in on the current drama surrounding the NFL.

With the considerable amount of athletes involved in the national anthem protests after President Trump’s comments on their “disrespect towards the flag,” the NBA Legend could not hold back any longer.

During “The Dan Patric Show” on Monday, Charles Barkley gave his thoughts on the national anthem protests and actions of athlete Steph Curry during his response to President Trump and the elimination of being invited to the White House.

Barkley stated that “he would stand for the national anthem when it came to him personally.”

But he made sure to shut down the stereotypical responses expected from fans that disagreed with what he had to say.

“You know, Dan, you said something earlier and it always annoys me when people say it — you know I've never voted Republican a day in my life. I'm a Democrat and just for the record, Democrats aren't doing anything for black people either.

My mother asked me if we're Republican or Democrat and she said only rich people are Republican. I said, ‘you do know we're rich, right?' People assume — I do want to make that clear. I've always voted Democratic, but they're not doing anything for us either. I want to make that clear.”

Reported by ijr:

Barkley then went on to state that he doesn't understand why the players aren't going into the communities themselves:

“The media has totally hijacked this conversation about who's kneeling, who's not kneeling, who's holding their fist up. I forgot why these guys are doing it. We got a lot of power. We got to use that power in a position way. We can go into some of these communities and do a lot of positive stuff. Don't worry about what the president says.

[…]

The players, they got so much money now and got so much influence. We need to take a progressive approach and go into these communities ourselves and try to make a difference.

[…]

The players got to say, ‘what can we do collectively?' Let's don't worry about the president, let's don't worry about the media. What can we do individually?

[…]

They can go to the owners and say, ‘hey let's go into these communities,' instead of wasting time about kneeling and who's protesting.”

Barkley also was asked about Steph Curry's comments towards the president, which led the Trump taking back his invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after winning the NBA Finals:

“Well I think anytime you get an opportunity to go to the White House, it's an honor and a privilege. Don't care who the president is — I think you should go. How many times are you going to get an opportunity to sit down with the president and discuss some issues with him? Not going is over with. It's just giving these guys on TV and radio something to talk about.”

Barkley, who made it clear he was a Democrat and always voted Democrat, didn't hold anything back and made a brilliant point that maybe the players should go make a difference themselves in the communities instead of “wasting their time kneeling.”

Despite being a Democrat, Charles Barkley does bring up a good point.. Professional athletes should go make a difference in the communities in need, instead of “wasting their time kneeling!”
