Shame on the NFL

Packer Plus - - News -

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!
