Packers flag for sale
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.
