I Can’t Imagine Why?: 180 NFL Players Protested the Anthem Last Week, Only 11 So Far This Week


Recommended Posts


After unleashing a protest bonanza last week, which featured nearly 200 players, coaches, and executives, demonstrating against the national anthem. This week, it appears that the NFL has decided to take a knee, on taking a knee.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell, a reporter who focuses on the business and financial side of sports, has compiled the numbers and figured out how many NFL players have protested this week, as opposed to last week.

Rovell shared those results on Twitter:

Last week, about 180 NFL players didn't stand for the National Anthem. This week? 11.


Yeah, that’s going to leave a mark. There’s no way to spin these results, other than as a complete victory for President Trump, who called the players out and galvanized public opinion against the league.  Some sign of just how bad the NFL blew it last weekend by embracing the protest movement, surfaced this past week. A national survey found that Americans not only strongly disapproved of players protesting the anthem. Moreover, a majority also agreed with President Trump about how disrespectful the protests had become, and wanted it stopped.

The other clear winner here is capitalism. Ticket sales and ratings have been cratering for the league ever since they embraced the utterly toxic, cancerous protest movement launched by Colin Kaepernick.

While some protesters will remain, Sunday’s early games show that “the struggle” ultimately became a little too real for the players, and their wallets.


Kneelers never prosper.

A Vision of Civil War

There are many reasons why the United States of America will become un-united and the facts can be viewed through many different lenses. One lens is through the NFL issue. Where sycophants of Colin Kaepernick say they kneel during the national anthem to draw attention to the inequality of minorities in America, specifically blacks, that rings hollow to the veterans, police officers and patriots of America (many of whom are blacks themselves) who recognize the flag and the national anthem as symbols of freedom and justice. The protests, therefore, must be against America and a criticism of the values America espouses, whether it is always faithful to those values or not. It is, like it or not, a question of American allegiance or rebellion.

Another lens is through the freedom of religion issue. Christians recognize that except in some Western nations, Christians are often the most persecuted individuals in the world, especially in Muslim nations, but also in China and other communist nations. This is a documented fact, not an opinion. However, in America, a largely Christian nation, symbols of Christianity are attacked, defaced and even removed through the force of erroneous law. The First Amendment to the Constitution that protects the freedom of religion states:

Several NFL Stadiums Half Full or Worse

The NFL entered Week 7 today and it's obvious the backlash against players kneeling for the national anthem continues.

Here are a few tweets from around the league showing fans voting with their pocketbooks by not purchasing game tickets, leading to half-full -- or worse -- stadiums.

Too little, too late.   I don't care if they all stand now and sing every word of the national anthem.  They have already displayed their true feelings.  I'll never watch another NFL game.
