The NFL just gave Donald Trump a massive win on the national anthem

America-hating football players destroyed the league’s reputation

Donald Trump ripped the players for their anti-American demonstrations and patriotic Americans turned the games off.

The NFL finally came to a solution and they delivered Trump this massive win.

Fans won’t see anti-American football players kneeling during the national anthem this fall.

League owners reacted to declining TV ratings and favorability numbers and voted to change the league’s anthem policy.

Players who appear on the field will have to stand for the anthem or be fined.

ESPN reports:

NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday.

The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel, as dozens of players have done during the past two seasons to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Those teams also will have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction.

Vice President Mike Pence reacted to the news with a celebratory tweet that featured the hashtag #winning.

This is the first step for Americans to seize the game of football back from social justice warriors who want the gridiron to be just another front in America’s never-ending culture wars.

Come 1PM Sunday, Americans look forward to a three hour escape from left v. right political skirmishes.

    Not strong enough, any idiot protester should be fired, period!

    We don’t pay good money to watch a bunch of spoiled brats disrespect our country. Owners should enfore the rules of their contracts. Fire them! This is a privledge. I don’t watch. I got rid of NFL crap. You lose 96% says so!

  3. Rich says:

    Don’t care about the fines. They should willingly stand out of respect. They hate the country and all that it stands for. They should all join the Canadian League and get lost. I will never never watch a NFL game again or support them in any way. LIVE FREE OR DIE

    • Steven Devenport says:

      This country, and the NFL makes them more money than they otherwise could only dream of. Now they disrespect the U. S. A.?? It’s gone to their heads! Screw them, and the NFL. Go to MacDonald’s. They may hire them. If they’re smart enough to bag hamburgers.

  4. Kid Mate says:

    They should also have a clause on season ticket holders being able to get a refund
    on their tickets if this nonsense continues. By refusing to attend or give their tickets
    away, they are still giving their money away to the racist jerks and owners that allowed
    this idiotic nonsense to continue.

  5. Nick says:

    Keep up the great work President Trump!

  6. Van says:

    I changed my pray, please lord use these fools in the NFL and may they continue protesting and allow them to be their own demise. Amen and Amen.

    • Anne says:

      NFL is as dead as American Journalism. Nothing could make me watch a group divided on the field, being forced to respect a Country, a Pledge and an Anthem their betters fought for and who suffered death and injury for the defense of the Constitution. Thugs, animal torturers, wife beaters, and deadbeat dads, and rapists, The National Felons League will never be seen in my house.May it fail in everything it does. God Bless America, keep and protect her, and President Trump, Vice President Pense , their families and We the People. Have a blessed Memorial Day.

  7. Van says:

    Personally it’s too late. I pray that the NFL goes up in smoke. I use to love the game of football but not anymore due to these American hating thugs ass players. How dare you hate a nation that has blessed you so much! God did give a fool the same free will he gave man to reap what he sowth. The NFL chose to roll with the devil, then it should just go up in flames. It does not matter what new rules the NFL makes cause I’m just another who use to be a fan but not anymore and never again will I ever watch or attend another game no matter what they do cause it’s to late. Found something better to do with my time then to watch a bunch of American hating overpaid criminals get paid to play a game. Go get a real job losers!

  8. Mike H says:

    The NFL owners are losers. If it wasn’t for the people watching that game there would be no game. It’s hitting their pocketbook and that’s all it is. Take their money and take out TV ads and all of them have enough money they could do it. Disrespecting the country and the flag is much more what they’re interested in. They say it’s not about the flag but yet that’s the only time they do it. So you tell me. If there’s so much injustice why do you stay in this country? There’s plenty other countries to go to ,try them out and see how far you get.

    • Beachbum13 says:

      Rosa Parks was not protesting the bus.
      Ghandi was not protesting the food.
      The colonists were not protesting the tea.
      Players are not protesting the flag or the anthem.
      They are just protesting injustice.

      You are either consciously blind to the truth due to racial bias, or you are a bot.

      We all love this country, and the FREEDOM OF SPEECH our laws provide us, among many other rights. Protesters do so because they believe in something very strongly, and have been willing to suffer the backlash to overcome injustice, or corruption, or an immoral war…..protesters literally ARE the voice of the people. They have been a tradition since the beginnings of our great country, and continue to help guide us towards a greater good FOR ALL . Our current administration is doing all it can to tear us apart…remember Bannon wanted to burn it all down?…..well they continued on without him, but THANK GOD that protests have emerged over so many subjects to provide a balanced view, not to mention a voting weight.
      Try to be nicer about everything, you might find it will make your own life nicer. We could all use more NICE to counter the viciousness that has infected us.

      • Chet- Suske says:

        Yes, I support free-speech & the right to protest- BUT not on a sports entertainment show on PUBLIC TV supported by MY ad $$$.
        Let those protesters do so on their own time & use THEIR $$$ to help the underprivileged. Most seem to just want to “speak-out”
        It seems the right to free-speech only exists for liberals- as conservative speakers & IDEAS have been banned from public institutions (also tax supported) & elsewhere- a real shame!

      • Chet- Suske says:

        YOU equate- a bus, food or tea with our flag & anthem?
        I equate you with a dam dum dem- a hypocrite who thinks only their opinion is correct or counts.

        • Beachbum13 says:

          YOU don’t get it….a bus, food, tea and the flag/anthem were NOT the reason for the protests. Racial inequality, non-violent demonstration, taxation without representation, and police violence against brown people were the reason.

          “a hypocrite who thinks only their opinion is correct or counts.”


  9. Herbert Chapman says:

    Any body who lives, drinks, eats sports and makes hero’s of sports players should not buy ticket or sports paraphernalia for any team. That will get more attention then anything else.

  10. They don’t respect the Flag, the Anthem, law enforcement, or their fans. CLICK! What is foot ball?

    • William says:

      Football: A game that a person used to be able to go attend at very reasonable cost even the hot dogs. These days it cost you a weeks pay for ticket, gas, food and parking. Haven’t attended since the late 60’s, was in Mil, and when out, cost started to climb. Haven’t been since & no intention to do so now either.

  11. John says:

    I for one Will never watch the N.F.L again they Lost All my
    Respect for them , the game mean nothing . They all make
    Way too much money for playing a game .I hope they take
    Them off the air , with next year’s ratings !!!!!!

    • Rivahmitch says:

      Same here! However, I fail to see how this can be considered a “victory” when Democommie Goodell and the owners paid this leftist scum $90 million for their “social justice” BS which effectively was a league decision to take sides in the current American culture war against the base of NFL supporters. This “stick” (fines) should have been applied immediately last year and the carrot ($90M bribe) should NEVER HAVE BEEN PAID.

      • Anne says:

        If you don’t watch, they work only until the league and owners lose money for every day they support a pack of whinning drama queens. Eventually another football League will fill the void and the first clown who disrespects the the Flag and anthem gets escorted from the field immediately and is fired on the spot. That would be written into every contract. Let football come back under new rules.

    • Cy says:

      Same here. but I believe that if the NFL has balls, which they don’t, they’d FIRE anyone who did stayed if the locker room during the anthem .

  12. Chet- Suske says:

    Any player not on field for Anthem should be loudly BOOOed by any fans left in stands this year.

  13. Popeye says:

    Players that don’t stand should not be allowed to play in that game. This puts them under peer pressure and the coaches, owners and sponsors will feel the pain too.

  14. JLM says:

    A mere gentle pat on the wrist. A real policy with teeth would be in every thug-player’s contract requiring presence on the field and standing properly during the National Anthem. Penalty for not so-doing–immediate firing and cancellation of contrct without possibility of renewal or hiring by another team. One team owner has said he will pay fines. The disheartening thing about all of this is the statements by owners and others in support of the protests.

  15. Stacey Ryder says:


    • Phoebe says:

      Stacey…you must be what we call “side liner”. Have you EVER served your country be it military or police force? My guess is NOPE! I would stop talking the talk and walking the walk before giving statements as you just did.

      • Beachbum13 says:

        Your comment demonstrates the institutional racism that produced the protest in the form of NON VIOLENT kneeling in the first place. So, you mean if a person experienced what police and military have, that person would no longer have a moral compass when it came to dealing with racial injustice? “Side liner”…I’ll have to remember to associate that term with the more militarized point of view, may I suggest some counseling to balance out that underlying rage you exhibit……

  16. Robert says:

    Too little too late, I’m done with the NFL and will never watch another game or give them another penny of my money for tickets, merchandise or anything else NFL related and I hope all former fans stay away also. Their only doing it because they are starting to see the decrease in revenue

  17. David Hart says:

    I lile most of the comments exce t from beachbum which I think his name says it all. Hes never had a job and doesnt ay taxes. he lives off of taxayers money.

    • Beachbum13 says:

      INCORRECT David Hart, your wishful thinking may be a reflection of your own status. Beachbum is a state of mind, it’s quite blissful, plus you should learn to use apostrophes, and spell check. You’d look less ignorant and careless. (I bet you like DeVos too)
      I could buy and sell you, worked 40 years in technical management at Fortune 50 telecom companies, retired in FL with a water front home I paid for in cash, have paid more taxes than I will ever recover in entitlements. (SS & Medicare….which I’ve prepaid for, in case you didn’t realize where that money comes from) Plus, to really make your day, I’m a female. Wish I were brown skinned to REALLY get you going, but since I never lie……I’m white.
      Please consider following the compassionate, Christian pathway. And keep in mind if there was no one willing to stand up for the American way of life, as those who came before us imagined and fought for, we may have never enjoyed the freedom we now have. We are all equal according to God.

      • Mary Murphy says:

        I will defend anyone and everyone’s rights to protest racist behavior, no matter where it shows up, but I do not watch football, baseball, or any other sport for which I paid an exorbitant amount of money for a ticket to watch for ENTERTAINMENT, away from the daily harangue of politics, to have it intruded on by that “stuff”. If that’s what I wanted to watch, I would stay home and watch it for free on CNN or Fox News. Just sayin’.

  18. Beachbum13 says:

    Not all NFL owners are caving in to the demands of the demented in chief. One has bravely stood up for free speech and states he’ll pay any fines for his players. The players kneel to bring to light the injustice of law officers killing unarmed (except for those dangerous cell phones!) black folks, and then let off the hook. It’s NOT because they don’t love the flag, or the USA, or any of the other false accusations made by the biggest liar this country has ever seen. A lot of people are saying he’s such a bully, even his “friends” say they can’t stand him any more. When you look at the facts, it is true that trump operates in an altered reality. I’m hearing that his actions are bad, really sad, and naïve, just look at his huge mistake with N.Korea…he’s blowing that one up right now with his letter that sounds like a 12 year old breaking up with a girl he still wants to date…..sometime…… Fact checking trump on this issue is like all the other issues he makes noise about…….all of them are personal to him and that’s all he cares about….not YOU, or ME, and surely not our great country.
    People are starting to say it’s time to stop believing what trump says…since he lies pretty much all the time. This NFL idiocy is just another example of trying to change the reason for the kneeling action to fit trump’s distorted racist purpose. You cannot be a thinking person and not see this purposeful misrepresentation of facts!

    • True Believer says:

      With many of the players being felons and not paying respect, my whole family will never watch a NFL game nor purchase anything. They have every right to protest but not where they are making the big bucks and I am so ashamed of the owners. Had I been the owner of the team where Kapernick knelled, I would not have left him play and if he ever did it again, would be suspended. That is the way it should have been. Protesting police, what a farst just because they got arrested and booked. That is another rule I would have made and that is if you get arrested and booked and become a felon, you are off the team period. Maybe that would make those over paid scum think twice.

      • Beachbum13 says:

        “Protesting police, what a farst just because they got arrested and booked”
        ANOTHER LIE from another RWNJ that can’t spell, is it impossible for you all to admit the real reason for the NON VIOLENT kneeling protest is to call out the senseless killing of unarmed people of color by law enforcement.
        Stop thinking it’s any other reason. If you had a family member killed for no reason what so ever you would feel differently. Everyone is equal under the law AND in the eyes of God.

        • True Believer says:

          They can protest all the want but not at a game. What word pray tell did I spell incorrectly. What about unarmed people of no color! By the way, I am of color.

    • Carolann700 says:

      Your name says exactly who you are..BUM. You are an idiot. People, and obviously not you, have been wounded & many have died for that flag. You are ignorant. You. Probably live in your mother’s basement. No RESPECT.. go to church to pray or take a knee in traffic.

      • Beachbum13 says:

        Many black people have died too, and not for a good reason like the flag, but in too many cases it’s just because a white cop was so inclined to shoot. I guess you are all for that? But as you good folks on this website like to do, you blatantly ignore the stated reason for the NON VIOLENT kneeling protest, instead you are blasted with lies from the liar-in chief that it’s about all manner of reasons…….except the one that is true.
        You are pretty nasty for someone touting church attendance, followed by a rude suggestion that involves possible harm. I suggest anger management, and internal reflection. What Would Jesus Do? Then do that.

        • True Believer says:

          There are very few instances that a black was innocently shot by a white policeman. What was that person doing there to begin with that would make a cop shoot?????

          • Beachbum13 says:

            I think they were breathing while black, or driving, or reaching for the registration that they were asked for, or running away in fear for their lives (great for being shot in the back!) (also great for running them over with your patrol car in the weeds!), do I really have to go on? We all have to share this planet, wouldn’t it be better to work on our collective harmony than our collective brutality? Nothing is impossible.

  19. Maria says:

    FIRE every NFu**L….. anyone of them hiding in the locker room, what a bunch of bullsh**…. Yes, all this is a slap on these “OVERPAID” idiots…. I will NEVER waste my time watching the games including that display of crap “superbowl Sunday”….. nothing but commercial hype, and then put up with some crapy half-time crap.

    • bernie says:

      fire all of them..

    • George says:

      Wonder what all these players making millions playing football if there was no NFL, I guess about 85% would be working at some fast food joint making $8,75 an hour
      I don’t go to many NFL games but I go to watch football not to see some guy making more in one game that I made almost in a live time taking a knee, If you don’t do anything wrong then do what you are told and all will be good

  20. Jan13 says:

    Guess seeing the empty stadium seats and tv viewing down was putting a big dent into team revenues, sorry, but for me, to little to late.
    Love to see these guys living on $30,000 a year and driving a 10 yr old vehicle.
    GOD Bless the USA ????????

  21. Jack says:

    When is there going to be racial equality in the NFL?

  22. Eileen Barayasarra says:

    For generations our DEMOCRAT (Communist!) teachers have told American students that THE USA IS EVIL! Then WHY are people from nearly every country in the world RISKING THEIR LIVES to GET HERE? Young people are not taught to think, just to accept what they are taught. I will never watch any of these UNAPPRECIATIVE, OVERpaid IDIOTS again! They have shown their TRUE COLORS!

  23. Robert says:

    This is not a win for anyone, this is a sad attempt by the NFL to make nice with the fans, if they wanted to do the right thing the owners would tell the players you WILL stand for the anthem and you will not hide in the locker room, I’m the boss you are the employees if you don’t like those rules don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, and see how they do in the real world where they actually have to work for a living for a fraction of the money

  24. The Owners and the Commissioner had all year to do this but now they if a player was on the field had to stand most of the players will probably stay in the locker room no thanks I want watch the NFL

  25. Jim says:

    I am not going to watch these unpatriotic a-holes PLAY a game for huge amounts of our money and disrespect our nation. I will watch other forms of sports like NASCAR racing where everyone, participants, Drivers, Owners, workers, and spectators ALL stand when the American Flag is presented, remain standing and bow their heads in prayer before the National Anthem is played and again remain standing and remove their hats and place their hands over their hearts and most sing along with the National Anthem. THAT is an all American Family Sport one can respect.

  26. Rich says:

    They did it for the money. You should willingly respect your country. They still hate America and everything it stands for. Go join the Canadian league. LIVE FREE OR DIE

  27. Mott says:

    To late, I will NEVER watch another NFL game!

  28. Carl Benander says:

    I, myself, think that if they don’t like this country they should leave. If every owner doesn’t allow anyone who disrespects our country to play in that particular game, then this practice would stop. I’m a rabid football fan but I have decided to not watch any more games unless this situation is properly handled.

    • Dolores says:

      I sm so glad our president did this. If they can’t respect the country and our flag, they have no business playing football. We have a great country and there is a lot more people out disrespecting our country. They are in the government and all of them should be terminated and not allowed to serve in the government.

    • Anne says:

      Leave the country ? Who would want them ? Sooner or later they would be at odds with whatever boss they had and they would pull the same tactics they pull now. However , leaving would take courage and thats in short supply among wife beaters, and dog torturers.

      • True Believer says:

        Yep, it takes a big man to beat his wife. Sorry, but I would find a baseball bat and teach him a lesson. He has to sleep some time but they won’t because they married them for the money in the first place. How horrible that they make that big money and do what they do however, with that said, there are a number of wonderful players and those are the ones that should take out the others.

  29. Chuck Harbry says:

    If they stay in the locker room and can’t honer our flag and our Country they should be fired.

  30. I said it before and i stand by my words. I will never watch nfl again. Its too late to stand now. Most of these jack-offs will stay in the locker room so they won’t have to stand. Fire all of them that disrespect America.

  31. Pat says:

    Anyone who doesn’t respect our flag or our National Anthem should just leave the country and go back wherever they came from leaving all monies they made her stay here. There are rules to be observed and if you choose not to do so, then just leave here.

  32. Maryann says:

    If they stand it’s just for the money. I have lost interest, will never watch. They are unamerican.

  33. William says:

    The NFL came up with a good solution. My mind set is they should have deen suspended for any game(s) kneeing and loss of pay for it as well.
