Considering the NFL’s excuse for the national anthem protests is “unity” it sure is not what we have been seeing. In fact, it is doing much more bad than good. It is simply sickening to see these people disrespect not only the flag, but the country and those who served it as well. And they are not going to stop. Sadly, this will continue on for the entire season.
There are more than just some players, including the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell himself, who are not very interested in respecting the values that Americans have. These people hold the flag and our national anthem very dear. This is not even talking about the respect of the people who have served.
Goodell even had the audacity to come our with a statement explaining their protests.
“The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture.”
“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”
Now, Titan’s player Delanie Walker has come our rubbing salt in the already sore subject.
“First off, I’m going to say this: We’re not disrespecting the military, the men and women that serve in the Army. That’s not what it’s all about,” Walker said. ”…I’ve been in the USO. I support the troops. This is not about that. It’s about equal rights, and that’s all everyone is trying to show, is that we all care about each other.”
He went on:
“And the fans that don’t want to come to the game? I mean, OK. Bye. I mean, if you feel that’s something, we’re disrespecting you, don’t come to the game. You don’t have to.”
Well, there you have it. If you don’t want to come to the game, “bye.”
