NFL To Veterans: Drop Dead

AMVETS, a national veterans organization, spent $30,000 on an advertisement which was to be placed into the Super Bowl LII program. The NFL, “which wholeheartedly supports our troops,” refused to accept the ad.

AMVETS officials are decrying “corporate censorship” from the National Football League for their decision not to run an ad in their Super Bowl program which responds to league players’ decision to kneel for the national anthem in protest of national equality issues.

The ad features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the organization. Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why.

Maybe because the NFL is chock full of anti-American, anti-military, anti-police leftists?

In a statement, NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy said the Super Bowl game program “is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl. It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”

Yes, the NFL has a strict policy against political statements… unless they include kneeling during the National Anthem or raising the Black Power fist.

I realize this will fall on deaf ears, but the majority of NFL owners, administrators, and players hate this country, hate the military, and hate the police. The NFL does not deserve your support on Super Bowl Sunday, or any other day of the year.

  1. The NFL needs to start by getting rid of Goodell and then bring in someone who will kick butt and take names. The idiotic kneelers need to go without pay and playing for while and perhaps they would gain some perspective. (I know they won’t but a girl can hope) Regardless, Goodell needs to be fired.

  2. Veteran, former police officer, and anti-NFL non-fan and all I can say is AMEN to all that! I hope this smooth move loses them even more revenue. I’d tell you what I really think, but then you’d never let me comment again.

    Don’t forget, there’s an obscure website run by NFL Headquarters, that’s really slow, but it lets you comment to them about how you feel. Not sure it’s the “official” way to get there, but I get there using this long convoluted URL:

    I’ve given them my two cents a few times over the years. Looks like it’s time to do so again.

  3. Ronni – Agreed. It would be nice if some owners stood their ground, but they’re complicit, too. I don’t begrudge someone watching the NFL – it’s a free country – but why any conservative would do so is beyond me.

    INPiker – That and it’s hockey season. I couldn’t care less about the NFL.

    RG – The most damaging people can do is not watch; and that’s been working out bigly.
