The NFL made a huge error on the national anthem that could cost them big time

The NFL has turned its back on its fans once again.

In response to fans burning season tickets and jerseys, the NFL instated new rules that would fine teams if players protest during the National Anthem.

But now the NFL is caving in to its pro-Black Lives Matter players and it could cost them dearly.

The NFL has reversed its decision to levy fines for players who disrespect the national anthem.

Business Insider reports:

In May, NFL owners announced a new policy designed to stop players from protesting during the national anthem. Under the new rules, teams would be fined if players and personnel “do not show appropriate respect for flag and anthem.”

But rather than a solution, the new policy was instead a vague and problematic half-measure that only ensured the conversation surrounding the protests carried on into the 2018 football year. It certainly continued into this week.

Detrimental conduct:

On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that the Miami Dolphins had included a “Proper Anthem Conduct” section in a discipline document, classifying anthem protests among other violations defined as “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine, or both.

NFL ratings fell by almost 10 percent during the 2017 regular season according to Nielsen.

If the NFL continues to kowtow to anti-American players’ demands, it should expect even bigger losses in 2018.

The NFL is desperately trying to find a way to quell the protests while making the players happy. But they continue to make all the wrong decisions.

Many (former) NFL fans view these protests as disrespectful and anti-American.

Considering that the NFL has created more black millionaires than just about any other organization, players should be grateful for the opportunity that this country and their fans have afforded them.

The 2018 football season has not started yet, but it appears that these protests are not going anywhere.

    Bob, you hit the nail on the head! For me, College FB has always been more interesting. They are “usually” punished in some way if they don’t comply (like losing a scholarship or worse). Also, Soccer is getting more & more interesting! The BIG BOYS had better be careful because PATRONS (the ones who pay their salaries) are getting sick & tired of theirBS. FOOTBALL IS NOT A POLITICAL VENU. They should HONOR the country they live & PROFIT from by standing! ! Their behavior is as DISGUSTING as they are!!
    Farewell Football! those who won’t stand are nothing but a bunch of uneducated racists.

    I gave up watching the NFL last year, didnt watch a single game (only the last few minutes of the Super bowl, Im a long suffering former Eagles fan) And the scumbags even managed to turn one of the best things ever to happen to this city into yet another protest (the trip to the White House the forced President Trump to cancel!) Never again, and I intend to start looking into who their sponsors are and boycotting them next!

    I did not watch an NFL game last year, and this year will be the same. I played football and was a big football fan, but I am a bigger fan of respect for my country and its symbols. NFL players who show disrespect for the flag should not play at all. Kneel for the national anthem and sit for the game! Until then, I am not an NFL fan.
