Trump Takes His Wrecking Ball To The NFL—WHY?
Baltimore Ravens players kneel down during the playing of the U.S. national anthem before an NFL

Here these guys are: game-playing millionaires, who experience more annual arrests per capita than rap singers, complaining about … … …WHAT ? ! ? !
Then they demonstrate their extraordinary ignorance in glowing color by disrespecting the American flag and nation and people by using their prime-time platform to stick it in our faces.
These guys must be crazy. Or, maybe — just maybe — the concussions are really getting to them.
After all, in one study, 87% were found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the serious brain condition caused by repeated concussions sustained during professional football games. NFL Concussions Much More Serious Than Previously Known — Study
This particular medical aspect of NFL culture must be seriously considered and is respectfully offered as to why these folks are so easily stampeded in their current misguided direction.
Crash & Burn
It’s inconceivable that the whole National Football league would go into a total “crash and burn” mode. It’s as though all the owners and the players and the league officials are competing in a race to the bottom. And, they’re all winning!
All President Trump did was to advise the NFL Commissioner to tell the football players to stand during the anthem. Is that too much to ask of multimillion-dollar earning crybabies? Trump Sports Feud Escalates: Demands NFL Chief “Tells Them To Stand”
If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!

Never has a POTUS run into so much stormy weather for simply suggesting that the highest paid athletes in the world show some basic respect and dignity.
Think about this wild and crazy predicament for just a moment.
These guys are really going out of their way to disrespect the paying public … … … especially in those red states where football fever is by far the strongest.
It’s obvious that the South and the Midwest are where football mania reigns supreme each and every fall season, and has practically forever. While Southerners are the most conservative of the bunch, Midwesterners are a quite patriotic lot.
And, yet, these overpaid and over-armored spoiled brats (NFL ball players) have the audacity to disrespect their fan base every Sunday in the big stadium!
We know that these guys — football players in general — are not the brightest bulbs in the room, but why go out of your way to turn off your primary source of income?
We know that the NFL owners and league officials and coaches are also not the sharpest pencils in the drawer, but why shut down all of your major revenue streams?
This has got to be the craziest situation ever seen in professional sport. Honestly, there is nothing even close to this self-destructive madness in league history. Any league in any sport! Which begs the question: Who’s really running this game on the American people?
