The NFL just gave a big middle finger to Veterans with this action

The story of the NFL season has been the players’ national anthem protests.

This caused many patriotic Americans to turn off the NFL and TV ratings dropped nearly ten percent from last season.

But now the NFL just slapped our veterans in the face on the biggest possible stage.

AMVETS is a charity dedicated to improve the quality of life for America’s 20 million veterans.

They wanted to run an ad during the Super Bowl asking for charitable donations.



The patriotic ad featured veterans with the hashtag #PleaseStand, referencing the NFL players who knelt for the national anthem throughout the season.

But the NFL refused to let them run the ad.

Army Times reports:

AMVETS officials are decrying “corporate censorship” from the National Football League for their decision not to run an ad in their Super Bowl program which responds to league players’ decision to kneel for the national anthem in protest of national equality issues.

The ad, which would have cost the veterans organization $30,000, features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the congressionally-chartered organization.

Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why. In a statement, AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk said the issue is one of fairness and respect.




This comes on the heels of an announcement that Colin Kaepernick was named a finalist for the NFL Players’ Association’s Byron “Whizzer” White Community MVP award.

This award honors NFL players who perform community service in their team cities and hometowns.

Other nominees included Houston Texans’ defensive lineman J.J. Watt, who raised over $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts this year.

Is Kaepernick deserving of this recognition? Was the NFL right to ban AMVETS from running their patriotic ad?

    The NFL has finally attracted a great businessman who projects that he can build a new pro-football league. That man in Vince McMahon, the man who built pro-wrestling to a major success. McMahon has the money, also the access to other business financiers. The USA has approx. 325 million people in it. Surely, among all of these people are enough good athletes to fill new pro-football teams in the league McMahon proposes.
    The NFL players can blame it on themselves. They have opened a market for football players as the USFL once did. The USFL had some very good teams which exist today in an NFL-USFL unification some years ago. Everyone thought the NFL was too superior to the USFL, until the hottest NFL team was whipped by the USFL NY Jets, led by All-American Joe Namath. The kneelers of the NFL can thank themselves for following a QB who even before his political demonstrations was not a top QB in the NFL. Perhaps the money went to his head, I don’t know, but business builders see possibilities in a new pro league and it all started with disrespect for our flag and anthem.

    The NFL is a NWO puppet like virtually all the entertainment industry is and they worship a different God than most real Americans. Just look at their halftime shows with Madonna, Katy Perry etc They do not deserve a single penny of our money.

    The NFL is full of unAmerican scum without the guts to put on a different uniform and provide for others, the freedoms at great risk veterans and the active military provide for them. They are a living affront and an INSULT to the memory of former NFL player Pat Tillman, remember him, BECAUSE IT IS OBVIOUS AS HELL , THEY SURE DO NOT, though he made the ultimate sacrifice doing JUST THAT for a bunch of self-serving, unpatriotic professional INGRATES; many of whom are disciplined often for abusing their wives or girlfriends, even their children and a variety of other dubious behaviors protected by Roger Goodell for the sake of his millionaires day to day contentment! Well, I am a 73 year old disabled Vietnam Veteran made so by Agent Orange, not ENEMY action,. However, I would do it AGAIN if we would but parse such trash from our society as they along with the leftist oriented Government of the lunatic Left have turned the country I grew up in into a den of depravity, degeneracy, and hatred for all Traditional American Values and Fiath , Morality and Common Sense. I WILL LIKELY BE CENSORED FOR STATING SO BUT: F**K ‘EM ALL, AND THIS ONCE BUT NO LONGER PROUD VETERAN WILL NEVER WATCH OR SUPPORT THE NFL IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER AND NEITHER SHOULD ANYONE CALLING THEMSELVES AN AMERICAN CITIZEN! The NFLis a NATIONAL DISGRACE, every owner and every player or any personnel dsrepecting the flag, anthem, pledge of alllegiance and the VETERANS and active military whose sacrifices allow them to be rectal cavities.are UNFIT to call thenselves “American!” God, THEY ALL MAKE ME SICK!

  11. Jarhead says:

  12. to the football players about your middle finger STOP SHOWING US YOUR WISH LIST YOUR IQ AND SPERM COUNT ADDED TOGETHER WILL NEVER GET THAT HIGH

  13. Jack says:

    of coarse the nfl will not allow anything positive to do with our Vets or pride for our flag or Country to be Aired during the super bowl because they are the one’s who have allowed and encourage the take a knee protest as they could have ended this as soon as it started for these players work for them, and if my boss told me to quit doing something that effected the company’s bottom line and I refused they normally hit you in the ass on the way out the door. Owners and player think they are untouchable.

  14. Carl says:

    No more NFL for me.

  15. James says:

    BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT And that includes those who buy ads during super bowl. I will not watch another No Fans Left Game again. These overpaid players do not understand what they are doing. They have killed the NFL.

  16. Joe Kempski says:

  17. Susan Dix says:

    Why is the still an NFL?
    Seriously, why are there any people in this nation still attending and
    watching them?

    • Rod says:

      Good question. I do like some of the individual players…like Marcus Mariotta and Russel Wilson, but I won’t support the NFL or watch any more games. Clean up or get out of town.

    • Charlton Kaneff says:

      I’m with you, I don’t understand it either!!!
      Unfortunately, it appears that some TV network is actually going to Air a show where one guy goes to various NFL games, interacts with the players, just so he can pick his next Fantasy League team!!!!

      I’m gonna stop watching programming on that network as well, as soon as I see another commercial about that show so that I know just which channel it is that thinks We The People are clueless as to what their end goal is with producing that show!

  20. Hazard Hawk says:

    I wonder how these gridiron giants would do in any other country that did not elevate them to “hero” status?
    To me, they seem nothing more than spoiled children.
