NFL Panicking After Camera Caught What They Tried To Hide At Disrespectful Veterans Day Game

Over the past month, hundreds of NFL players have been taking a knee during the national anthem to protest against President Donald Trump and against racial inequality. Americans have responded by turning off their televisions and refusing to watch NFL games rather than see our flag be disrespected.

On Veteran’s Day, the NFL had the chance to turn this around by showing veterans the respect that they deserve. Though on the surface there seemed to be some show of honor and praise for the military and our country, the camera caught something else the NFL was desperately trying to hide.

When the Houston Texans took on the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, photos show that the stadium was nearly empty. Clearly, fans have no interest in paying money to go watch our country be disrespected in this way.

Soldier Field also had very few fans show up.

This comes after Freedom Daily reported that NBC has warned the NFL that after Papa John’s founder John Schnatter announced that they would begin removing NFL-related advertisements, other mega-sponsors are mulling whether to follow the pizza chain and pull future ads from the 2017 season. NBC-Universal executive Linda Yaccarino said at a round-table discussion that Papa John’s “wasn’t alone” in expressing their outrage over months of professional athletes “taking a knee” during the US national anthem.

“None of NBC-Universal’s NFL advertisers have pulled out of NBC’s Sunday Night Football or Thursday Night Football games. However, a ‘list of advertisers have made themselves very clear: if you continue covering the political coverage of the issue, we will not be part of the NFL,’” she said. “Because think about it: they have half the country that is cheering about that, and they have half the country that is emailing them, saying, don’t do that. So that’s a real thing.”

Anne Quigley of Bluffton, South Carolina wrote a letter to the IslandPacket in which she proposed a perfect idea in response to the National Football League disrespecting the nation and that’s to take “National” out of the name. Quigley suggested that they replace “National” with a word that perfectly describes what these players really are.

“I would submit that the players in the National Football League who do not want to stand for the national anthem should change the name of their organization to remove the word “national,” Quigley wrote. “Perhaps they could be the Disgruntled Football League?”
