HERE IS SOME REAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT…..READ ON AMERICA!
Actions speak louder than words! I’m not okay with any of the NFL’s double standards! Where were these players and the NFL, team, or owners protests for domestic violence, child abuse, animal abuse, rape, or murder? Let’s take a little walk down memory lane:
•Ray Rice knocked his girlfriend out cold in an elevator. Remember that? No one protested his return to the league after a two game suspension. Two lousy games!
•Everyone knows about Mike Vick. Multimillionaire who conducted dog fights to their deaths in his backyard! What was that about? Was he hard up for a little extra cash? I never remember a team, owner, manager, or player protesting THAT, do you?
•What about Adrian Peterson? Remember when he beat his own child so badly it broke the skin on the back of his legs? I don’t remember the sanctimonious Kaepernick kneeling down for that one, do you?
•What about Ben RAPEthlisburger who cornered a young girl in a bathroom at Georgia College in Milledgeville and had his bodyguard watch the door while he raped her? I can’t remember the Steelers protesting that, do you?
•What about O.J. Simpson? He killed TWO people, nearly decapitating his ex-wife! But the NFL still shows highlights of “The Juice” running his way into the football hall of fame. Funny how it works, isn’t it?
•Remember “L.T.”? That’s right; if you grew up in the 80s you probably remember Lawrence Taylor. He was a crack-head who liked to party with 16 year old girls! I don’t remember anyone protesting his despicable behavior. Do you?
•How many people out there remember Lawrence Phillips? Feel free to ‘Google’ him. It will blow your mind.
•Anyone remember Mark Gastineau? He was a notorious wife-beater piece of garbage. There weren’t any “protests” against him, were there?
Now, suddenly NFL players have appointed themselves the moral compass for our country? I DON’T THINK SO!
Where were their “free speech” standards when:
•Tim Tebow took a knee for prayer and it was unacceptable.
•The Dallas Cowboys were NOT allowed to wear a decal honoring the five murdered Dallas Police Officers who were brutally slaughtered for the crime of wearing a “blue uniform”.
•NFL Players were ordered NOT to wear 9/11 cleats in honor of nearly 3,000 innocent victims, which included well over 400 first responders and firefighters; thousands of Americans working in the Twin Towers of the WTC. Not to mention all the passengers on flight 93, who bravely fought back against radical islamic terrorists and lost their lives for it!
None of THOSE patriotic, heartfelt tributes were allowed on the football field but this latest display of disrespectful, divisive kneeling during the National Anthem is not only allowed it’s condoned by professional teams across the country; and by many team owners as well as the NFL AND Roger Goodell himself!
Funny, but I thought this was about equality. Where IS the equality in that?
Either ALL of the players are EQUALLY allowed to make personal political statements on the playing field or NONE of them are. The NFL and Roger Goodell need to make up their minds!
Or else they represent NOTHING but hypocrisy.
It is time for them to find out where their paychecks come from. Don’t watch any NFL games and don’t support any of the advertizers.
