LIVID Fans Post Savage Reactions To Their Teams Kneeling For Anthem

The NFL seems to have forgotten that the fans are all that really matter. Most of the people who watch football have a large sense of pride for their country and flag. Many of them have served in the military or work in the police force. It’s probably not a good idea to piss off the people who make your career possible in the first place. After Donald Trump’s statement, this past weekend stating that anyone who sits for the National Anthem is a “son of a bitch” and should be fired immediately the reactions across the league have been varied.

According to TMJ4:

The Green Bay Packers had three players sit down in protest during today’s national anthem before their game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks (a Milwaukee native) and defensive back Kevin King all chose to sit down during the anthem.

Most Packers and Bengals stood and locked their arms in solidarity during the anthem.

When asked about the protests and whether the team met about the issue, Packers defensive lineman Dean Lowry told WTMJ’s Greg Matzek “nothing too deliberate. Coach McCarthy told the team that ‘Whatever you do, be behind us.’

Conservative Tribune reported:

Packers fans are a dedicated sort. You’d be hard-pressed to find one of them burning a Pack jersey after a loss or a key player was traded.

However, some things are a bridge too far — and one of those things is meretriciously kneeling for the national anthem.

It wasn’t just Packers fans, either. As players all over the NFL decided to bravely do what pretty much everyone else was doing and kneel during the national anthem on Sunday, partially in response to President Donald Trump’s criticism of said act, fans decided to let the players know how they felt about it — with a little help from the element of fire.

The Entire Pittsburg Steelers team minus one player didn’t even leave the locker room for the Anthem while other teams locked arms in solidarity to protest Trump. In my opinion, this whole situation has gotten way out of hand, and many fans agree.

Fed up with the entitled NFL players, many fans have sworn off football and have even begun to burn their memorabilia to protest the league that is protesting our country. The fans have taken to social media to express their outrage and have even recorded themselves burning their jerseys and flags. You have to remember that these people are longtime fans, and for them to be burning their possessions, you know that the NFL has seriously messed up.

Also in London were the Jacksonville Jaguars who protested the National Anthem as well. There are actually Jaguars fans, believe it or not, and they let the team know how they felt.

The comments from President Donald Trump on Sunday regarding the “son of a bitch” NFL players who kneel during the Anthem was shaping up to be unlike any other seen in recent memory.

After photos and videos began surfacing showing hundreds of players protesting the National Anthem in various ways, many fans of those teams began to take to social media posting videos of them burning their team’s jersey.

What did these players expect to happen by protesting our country? It’s one thing to dislike President Trump, but it’s an entirely different story when you disrespect the country that has given you every opportunity to succeed. Without this country, many of these players would never have been heard of. They wouldn’t have been worshipped by adoring fans and given the world at their fingertips.

America is the most free and non-racist country in the world. Every man and woman has an equal opportunity to succeed and to say otherwise is absolutely ridiculous. The fans are tired of these entitled players. Maybe if enough people protest the NFL something will change. There is only so long that the owners will allow this behavior when they see less money rolling in. When it comes down to it, the NFL is a business, and if it begins to fail there will need to be changes made. At this rate those changes will happen sooner rather than later.
