Shame on the NFL
I am a huge Green Bay Packer fan!
I am an even bigger Patriot!!
Backstory: I am 66 years old. I grew up watching Lombardi's Packers. I bleed green and gold. I am a retired soldier. I did not vote for Trump.
Roger Goodell and Mark Murphy have forced me to choose between the Packers and my country. I choose my country.
NFL players who refuse to stand for the national anthem are spitting on the grave of those service men and women who died to give them the right to do so.
Until Roger Goodell and Mark Murphy released their statements, I looked at those players who failed to show proper respect to the flag as individual knuckleheads. Now It appears that it is the official NFL position to support the knuckleheads at the expense of the fallen service members. Shame on you NFL.
I have not missed watching more than a handful of Packer games in the last 55 years. Today I chose not to watch even one minute of the
Packer game or any other NFL game.
While I support the cause of social injustice, I strongly object to the means by which they protest. I expect Roger Goodell and Mark Murphy to apologize for disrespecting the military or otherwise are OK getting fired for what they believe!
