Stop support of the NFL


It is my opinion that anyone who has any patriotism should NOT watch any NFL game.

How dare these spoiled college kids think they have the right to sit or kneel during the National Anthem. There are real men and women willing to put their lives on the line for their freedom to act so ignorant.

They had a college education given to them in most cases, were given the God given gift to play sports and now, because so many people are dumb enough, including me until now, watch them make millions of dollars while people that were not so fortunate enlist and defend this country.

What injustice do or did they endure that this country owes them anything? How many of them spent any time in a jungle or in the hot desert to take the fight to our enemies?

How many of them spent endless days away from their family on a ship for months at a time with no fanfare except by their peers and family?

This has got to stop. They have not sacrificed one thing to protect and defend this country and should be humble and thank everyone who are willing to protect their families.

The NFL says they have freedom of speech. They only have it because of the people who fought and died for it. Stop supporting them. I have.
