The NFL is putting anthem protesters over fans with this rule change

For two seasons the NFL has struggled over a fairly simple question of what to do with the disrespectful anthem protesters.

Goodell could’ve nipped it in the bud by fining or suspending Colin Kaepernick, and it may never have become a story outside of the sports pages.

But now rumors are the league is poised to “solve” the problem in the worst way possible.



It’s hard to believe the NFL could devise a solution that’s almost worse than the problem of players disrespecting the flag, the military, and our national anthem week-in, and week-out.

But here’s the latest.

According to ESPN’s Jim Trotter, the NFL may consider a rule change that requires players to stay in the locker room during the national anthem.





This just goes to show that the NFL would rather turn away fans than cross the anthem protesters

When the idea was first floated in the fall of 2017, Trump sounded off on Twitter saying, “That’s almost as bad as kneeling!”

Sadly, the disrespect shown by these athletes emboldening radical anti-American activists.

In Baltimore, The Star-Spangled Banner Centennial Monument, which commemorates the Battle of Baltimore and the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner, was vandalized with red paint and the words “racist anthem” were spray painted on the sidewalk.



What are your thoughts on the NFL’s potential “solution” to its anthem problem?

Do you think the disrespect shown by professional athletes is spreading, causing vandals to deface monuments related to the anthem?

    Record crowd at Phila.-Minn. game last night, 1/21.18 6:30 PM. I tuned to it a few minutes late, but a U.S. Navy sailor did sing the national anthem as I tuned in. A giant American flag, the size of the playing field, was unfurled by uniformed personnel. Whether the TV cameras avoided focusing on players, I can’t say, but the focus & sound were both on flag & anthem. Any players involved in protest had little to no chance of being noticed.
    The players, apart from performing as athletes, have been minimized. They receive notice for one issue and one only. That is playing the game for the fans of the game. They have presented themselves like the gladiators of Roman coliseums presented themselves. They were either criminals serving sentences to fight each other to the death, or paid to take gambles of their own mortality. Therefore, the presentation of national flag and anthem was done in all due respect to the attending patriots. flag, and anthem.

    The players should stay in the locker room during the game, all 60 minutes of it.

    • Gerald W. Kelly says:

      You got that right. I fought for that flag in Viet Nam and I will never turn my back on our flag. If the players refuse to respect our FLAG I will never watch their game.

    They are a pack of overpaid, anti American criminal woman beating, dog murdering pussies!

    • Stan L says:

      Concerning “overpay,” the game of pro-football is hazardous to human bodies by nature of the game. The Pats had to go without their Hall of Fame tight end, Gronkowsi last night, who was benched after a collision of helmets with defenders render Gronkowski a concussion injury.
      When the game is played, at least at pro-football level, the players “put it all on the line” and that’s darned difficult to quantify with money.

      • Charlton Kaneff says:

        Oh look, it’s a millionaire cry baby’s advocate!!!!

        Someone is still watching these overpaid pussies play a game!!!!

        National Felons & Liars league!!!!

      • towerlady says:

        Au contraire, the term “overpay” is correct. It is in fact our brave soldiers and veterans who have put “put it all on the line” in defense of our great country whose service is “darned difficult to quantify with money.” Those jerks who will not make the simple gesture of respect to our flag by standing during the national anthem don’t deserve to be paid at all. Therefore, by definition, they are overpaid!

  8. ReaperHD says:

    Haven’t watched a game since the first week and I don’t miss it any more and I will not buy any products from sponsors who back the nfl.

  9. William says:

    I hole hardidly agree with Robert, there should be term limits on politicians with out a doubt.

    who needs the NFL high school and collage is enough

  11. charlie salbashian says:

    Just give up the NFL and you will learn to live without it. If your doctor tells you to give up your lifelong favorite foods or you will die, you will give them up and it wont hurt a bit. You will save money in the long run , and the players will probably get smaller paychecks.

  12. Jack says:

    WE CAN solve the problem about the protesters QUIT watching football as I have done. I loved playing it for over six years and watching every chance I could, up till the last half of last year and all of this years season. I love my country more than I love football

  13. Nancy Tomaso says:

    It looks like they are going to solve the problem permanently when they stop making money and all these players end up without a job and deprive the people they are supposedly “supporting” with fewer opportunities. Good Job!

  14. John says:

    Ya right! Keep the spoiled overpaid ungrateful a**holes out of sight like some ugly warts, but that dosen’t make them go away.

  15. Donald Greene says:

    Either PC-ness or the player’s contract will prevent an owner from firing an offending player. But the owner can stop that player from playing, at the cost of continuing to pay him while he warms the bench each time he disrespects our flag or national anthem. And the owner can insist on an appropriate contractual clause that would allow firing for these types of offenses in each new contract. This is not a First Amendment or any other constitutional issue. The Amendment applies to governmental interference with an individual’s right to free speech (or anything constituting ‘speech,’ such as flag-burning, etc). The player would not be prevented from free speech by the government, where the owner of a private enterprise limits his speech.

    Very soon each player or prospective player would learn that he will have no job with a team that doesn’t allow his unpatriotic behavior. The requirement to remain contractually bound to pay an offending player whose contract doesn’t contain the “magic words” seems a small price to ultimately end the offending behavior and save the franchise and the game.

    Do not show up at the stupid bowl. If The players can stay in the locker room than I can stay home.

  17. Towerlady says:

    Perhaps a suitable response would be to export these spoiled ingrates to North Korea and let them dis Kim Jong-un’s flag and see how they like the response. They certainly don’t belong in the U.S.

    Quit the nfl. Dont mess with my countries flag. Will find something else to do on Sundays like matching the socks in my sock drawer.

  20. Mary Lou says:

    We are being disrespected by thugs. We no longer care about nfl. They are not men. I never cared much for football but I thought the players were red blooded American patriots who would always defend us and our country. NOT TRUE. We are done with the low life’s who don’t us. Yes, us! Our veterans, our people, our country means more to us then a few men playing with a ball. If we miss the game…..our own sexy men can play in the yard and get exercise and a tan!

    • Anne says:

      God , Country, Family, Every member of the Military, All members of the Police Forces State,and National, Firefighters and First Medical responders are what matters. Let the NFL peddle their butts to Foreign Countries we don’t need or want them. Sooner or later some other League will be created with players who are employees not Drama Queens.

  21. Cherie Davis says:

    Good Lord!! The NFL has just rounded the bend trying to solve an insanity problem with more insanity! The whole organization has gone nuts and appears to be hellbent on destroying itself!! The crazies are definitely running the asylum!

  22. Robert Pavlick says:

    Well then I think that sensible Americans know where the NFL can go !!!! Straight to Hell ! When all of these loser’s whose only skill is throwing a ball, end up working at McDonalds, they will wish that they had shown more respect to the Nation that GAVE them these opportunities to earn millions !

  23. Joanna says:

    NFL is not the number one sport anymore.

  24. First off, What Happened to “Global Warming”.Second,I understand the NFL is a difficult job.Moreso than most people admit.Yet,respect to our Great Country should be a PRIORTY.We all have lost our upbringing values due to the craziest Gov’t officials in charge.Please,please bring about Term Limits.No more forever rewards for nothing.
