Failing Sports League Bans Kneeling

The NFL, a league which lost my support, money, and viewership two years ago, has officially banned kneeling during the National Anthem. The owners approved the measure in a desperate attempt to regain relevance.

NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday.

The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel, as dozens of players have done during the past two seasons to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Those teams also will have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction.

I guess last year’s severe ratings drop hit a little too close to home.

For me, this is too little, too late, especially since the NFL gives the players an out by having them stay in the locker room. So instead of kneeling, the networks will make a big deal of who stayed in the locker room. F**k them and everyone who look like them.

He Has Plenty Of Time To Kneel Now

My oldest son Kyle has never expressed much interest in atending college. He’s going through the motions, taking his PSATs, etc., but he would be perfectly fine going to a trade school.

If Kyle does decide to go to college, I will gladly send him to Albright.

A football player at Division III Albright College in Reading has been dismissed from the team after taking a knee during the National Anthem on Saturday.

One player, 19-year-old Gyree Durante, went down on one knee during the National Anthem. According to school officials, the freshman quarterback didn’t tell anyone his plan to kneel.

In a statement, the school says Durante was dismissed for his decision to not support team unity.

This may be the best story I have read all year. Great job, Albright! And Gyree, if that is your real name, feel free to kneel during your shift at the local McDonald’s. Douche.

Speaking of douches, cheerleaders from a Georgia college took a knee during a game. Cheerleaders? No one goes to a football game for the cheerleaders, you stupid bints. Just stand, jump up and down, and shut your dicktraps.

Boycott The NFL

Far be it for me to suggest how someone lives their life – because really, I’m a nobody (less than a nobody) – but after this week’s National Anthem protests, I cannot in good conscience watch, listen to, or otherwise support the National Football League.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will remain in their locker room during the National Anthem ahead of their game Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

To be clear, I have not watched the NFL since 2015, but I’m at a point now where I am tossing anything NFL in the dumpster. The quote The Dark Knight Rises, the league has my permission to die.

The Steelers players made the decision following a meeting with head coach Mike Tomlin. The team will hold a “ceremonial unification” in the locker room during the Anthem. Numerous players for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens kneeled during the Anthem prior to their came at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Jaguars and Ravens took a knee during the National Anthem, then stood for God Save the Queen. Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy – the same clown who “allegedly” assaulted Philadelphia police officers in 2016 – sat down and stretched during the Anthem. Many players, including some from the Eagles, raised their fists in a Black Power salute. F**k them all.

My great uncle survived Pearl Harbor. My father was a Philadelphia firefighter. I was raised, correctly, to believe America was the greatest country in the world. I was raised to respect this country and its traditions. As a college graduate, I had many career choices, but I decided to become a police officer to serve my city and its citizens. I swore an oath to the Constitution to uphold the law. I love this country, and the stars and stripes flies on our flagpole daily.

What these billionaires are doing wounds me to the core, and I will do everything in my power to ensure the NFL will not see another dime. It is my sincere hope the NFL suffers mightily for this, and the fans abandon them in droves. /rant.

UPDATE: Disregard my comment below about the Cowboys. Jerry Jones and the team took a knee tonight. F them all. Oh, and the lone Steeler who stood for the Anthem apologized for doing so today, claiming he felt “embarrassed” to be standing… for the National Anthem!

The real solution to this problem can be found below the fold…

A Browns Stain On Humanity

Following in the footsteps of previous NFL players – including their equally untalented hero Colin Kaepernick – many Cleveland Browns players kneeled during the National Anthem last week. The players did so during a nationally-televised game.

Now, a VFW post in Strongsville, Ohio, has responded to the team’s despicable display.

A VFW Post 3345 in Strongsville posted a sign that says it will no longer televise Cleveland Browns games.

“We like our Browns – we love our flag more. Your games will no longer be shown here. God Bless America!”

The decision by a dozen Browns players to kneel during the National Anthem before Monday’s football game has caused a lot of controversy. The protest was the largest in a social-consciousness movement started last season by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, currently a free agent.

If I am ever passing by VFW Post 3345, drinks are on me.

John McCain-esque “conservative” Hugh Hewitt is a Browns shill, and to date he has not mentioned the protest on his Twitter feed. It’s yet another reason why I despise him and his pollution of my radio airwaves. Actual conservatives believe kneeling during the anthem is disrespectful, but apparently MSNBC “conservatives” feel otherwise.

For my part, I do not regret my boycott of the NFL – which began last year – nor do I miss it. Personally, I hope the Browns never win another game.
