“We want people to be respectful. We want people to stand. We want to keep the focus on the game and the players.” Roger Goodell.
As it should be. Standing for the flag was never an issue during the National Football League’s (#NFL) entire existence until recently.
It showed respect.
It showed character.
It showed gratefulness.
And now the NFL has made it clear that ALL players must stand during the #NationalAnthem or be fined. The NFL only corrects these things if:
It’s losing money;
It’s hurting their ratings.
And boy, did they lose millions of dollars and millions of viewers.
The NFL is doing all that it can to save face. Even @realdonaldtrump complimented the NFL for doing what’s right—giving America and all its fallen soldiers respect.
Just because these players have a platform to reach millions of people, does not mean to preach their #SJW views during the job.
What if waiters at restaurants were to do that? Hear their views and lectures before they take your order? And if you don’t agree with it? No soup for you.
If a business owner comes over to you, the employee, and says, “Hey cut out the bullshit and do your job.” Guess what? You do your job.
Our NFL players don’t get this. They think they are entitled and special, when in reality; they just need to cut out the bullshit and do their jobs. - Ian Garrison @grrrgraphics www.grrrgraphics.com
