A disturbing trend has swept the NFL in which players disrespect our country by kneeling during the national anthem to protest against racial inequality in the U.S. Last weekend, over 130 players joined this protest after President Donald Trump called on his supporters to boycott the NFL until players stop disrespecting our anthem.
Now, one NFL owner has had enough after seeing his own players kneel during the national anthem, and he’s taking action.
The owner, who is a shareholder of the Green Bay Packers and did not want to be identified by name, told The Daily Caller on Monday that he has issued a huge ultimatum to his protesting players.
“I am f*****g livid right now. I see this s**t and I lose my mind. It needs to end immediately,” the owner said. “I’ll give up football completely and find something else to do with my time if this continues. This horse s**t must end. These players are so out of touch. They disrespect our flag and then wonder why Trump won. It’s a no-brainer. This is so disrespectful.”
“People will run to college football over the NFL in droves if these protests continue,” the owner concluded.
President Trump himself agrees that this kind of behavior should not be tolerated.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired!’,” Trump said. “You know, some owner is gonna do that. He’s gonna say, ‘That guy disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in this country.”
“When the NFL ratings are down massively, massively. The NFL ratings are down massively,” he added. “Now the number one reason happens to be they like watching what’s happening .. .with yours truly. They like what’s happening. Because you know today if you hit too hard: 15 yards! Throw him out of the game! They had that last week.”
