Today an estimated 100 or so NFL players refused to stand during the Star Spangled Banner.
Some NFL owners refused to stand. A few teams did not come out of the locker room until after the anthem. The Ravens & the Jags even took a knee on foreign soil.

Fans took to social media threatening boycotts. Fans photographed themselves burning jerseys.

Many believe kneeling players are disrespecting our military veterans & our country. President Trump says they should be fired.

Attendance was already decreasing at pro games. TV ratings have declined too.

Football has been a great escape for many of us. Certainly an escape from politics. Not any more. Thank you NFL. This will not end well for you.

Roll Tide!
