The Reason I'm Not Watching the NFL this Season

By Todd Starnes

It's become clear that the National Football League has an infestation of anti-Americanism.

And they have neither the courage nor the backbone to eradicate the infestation.

So let's consider the facts:

The NFL is a business. The players are employees. And the field is their place of employment.

The NFL has a right to demand certain behavior from its employees while they are on the clock.

That's why they stopped the Dallas Cowboys from honoring five slain police officers. That's why they threatened to fine players for wearing cleats in memory of the 9-11 victims.

So it's very clear there are rules and regulations the players and coaches must follow. 

But when it comes to players who hate on America, the NFL turns the other way. 

It's a dirty double-standard. 

So that's why I've decided not to watch any NFL games this season. I've also decided not to do business with their vendors or sponsors. I don't want my hard-earned money being used to finance a bunch of ungrateful pinheads.

And the next time one of their blowhard billionaire owners wants to build a shiny new stadium, let them ask Black Lives Matter for a handout - because the American taxpayers are sick and tired of footing the bill for a bunch of overgrown, anti-American, cry-babies. 

If you want to disrespect America - do it on your own dime - not mine.
