Pack­ers flag for sale

Packer Plus - - News -

As a now for­mer diehard Packer fan, I watched my last packer game along with all things NFL. As a 20 year vet­eran of the Armed Forces I watched in dis­gust as hun­dreds of rich priv­i­leged ath­letes (free col­lege tuition, mil­lion dol­lar con­tracts, com­mer­cial deals etc.) sat or knelt for the Na­tional An­them.

These ath­letes along with all in the sports me­dia say they sit or kneel be­cause of so­cial in­jus­tice. They wear socks that de­pict law en­force­ment per­son­nel as pigs. Where is the me­dia out­rage about that.

Try con­vinc­ing mil­lions of vet­er­ans and oth­ers who love our flag and coun­try those are the

rea­sons for their protest. I did not hear one sports me­dia per­son men­tion that maybe, just maybe they at least un­der­stand why some might feel how I and mil­lions other feel the way we do.

We can all agree this na­tion is not per­fect but the NFL should not al­low the weaponiz­ing of the Amer­i­can flag. I will now fo­cus on col­lege foot­ball un­til the same be­hav­ior hap­pens there.
