Hundreds of thousands for football fans across the country are PISSED OFF with scumbag players kneeling during the National Anthem and they want their money back!

DirecTV is allowing at least some customers to cancel subscriptions to its Sunday Ticket package of NFL games and obtain refunds, if they cite players’ national anthem protests as the reason for discontinuing service, customer service representatives said Tuesday.

Fox Business reports that under Sunday Ticket’s regular policy, refunds are not to be given once the season is underway. But the representatives said they are making exceptions this season — which began in September — because of the controversy over the protests, in which players kneel or link arms during the national anthem.

The Wall Street Journal cited two individuals who received refunds, one of which was a veteran from Wisconsin.

Charles Plavk, a veteran who resides in Wisconsin, cancelled his subscription to the channel from Charter Communications’ Spectrum Cable. He said when he called, the customer service representative said, “everybody’s calling about that today.” Unlike Sunday Ticket, which is only available through DirecTV, RedZone is available through a number of cable providers and streaming outlets.

And Mark Hoffman, a longtime subscriber to Sunday Ticket, which gives sports fans the ability to watch every Sunday game, said in an interview he was able to cancel his subscription on Monday. The package costs around $280 per-season.

“I honestly didn’t think I’d get a refund,” Mr. Hoffman said. “I know their guidelines, I just wanted to make a point.” Mr. Hoffman, a former business editor at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, said he made his case successfully to a customer service representative after sitting through a recording saying cancellations weren’t an option.

HELL YEAH!

Damn right! We are BOYCOTTING THE NFL!

After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm.

A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently.

The worries over earnings are not allayed by the fact that this season’s Week Two is the lowest mark for CBS since 1998. And the first two games of the season are down double-digits at a multi-year low compared to last year.

AFF Media Inc. has over 10,000,000 patriots that are members of our Facebook pages and we are pushing for a full blown BOYCOTT!

Our influence is so strong that Fox News included us in one of their articles today!

Anyways, the controversy comes as the league is trying to rebound in the ratings. Viewership was down last year and the trend is continuing. Network executives and league officials attributed last year’s declines in part to viewing competition from the presidential election, distaste with the pace and quality of games, and also the anthem protests.

You fools haven’t seen anything yet.

We have just begun- this is ALL OUT WAR!

Aside from DirecTV, the NFL-owned channel RedZone, which provides live action and scoring from every game on Sundays, is also experiencing some cancellations due to the protests.

And HELL YEAH!!!

Earlier, America’s Freedom Fighters reported that amid the growing furor over the NFL’s acceptance of its players disrespecting our nation, the league is receiving some bad news from Washington.

As many are aware, the NFL benefits from billions in taxpayer subsidies, which help team owners build extravagant stadiums they claim help improve the local economies. However, with the recent spate of protests on the field, people from all over the country have been calling for these subsidies to be stripped from the league, and it looks like they’re going to get their wish.

According to Watchdog.org, the federal government has given the NFL over $7 billion in taxpayer cash to either build or revamp existing stadiums.

That’s about to end!

“Professional sports teams generate billions of dollars in revenue. There’s no reason why we should give these multi-million-dollar businesses a federal tax break to build new stadiums,” Senator Booker said. “It’s not fair to finance these expensive projects on the backs of taxpayers, especially when wealthy teams end up reaping most of the benefits.”

“The federal government is responsible for a lot of important functions, but financing sports stadiums for multi-million – sometimes billion – dollar franchises is definitely not one of them,” Senator Lankford said. “Using billions of federal taxpayer dollars for the subsidization of private stadiums when we have real infrastructure needs in our country is not a good way to prioritize a limited amount of funds. I’m pleased to work with Senator Cory Booker to introduce this bill to eliminate the use of federal tax-exempt bonds for sports stadiums. Everyone likes free federal money to build their expensive stadiums, but with $20 trillion in federal debt, this is waste that needs to be eliminated.”

The bill would end federal subsidies for stadium financing, but would not prevent localities and states from bidding and offering economic incentives to teams. In eliminating this wasteful expenditure, the bill also unties the hands of local governments to finance their stadium subsidies with taxes on tickets and in-stadium purchases—in other words, allowing states to target taxes on the people who actually use and benefit from the subsidy. Current tax law does not allow local governments to finance federal stadium subsidies by levying taxes on stadium purchases.

Spokesmen for DirecTV-parent AT&T Inc. and the National Football League declined to comment.

NFL fans are sending a message to the league, loud and clear – we’re tired of seeing overpaid athletes disrespect our country to protest alleged racism and oppression as they’re paid millions to chase a ball around a field in a league comprised of a majority of black people.

If Goodell and the team owners want to allow it to persist, that’s their decision. However, it’s also ours to just tune this garbage out, and it appears as if that’s exactly what people are doing.

Again, the NFL is fighting a battle it’s not going to win.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!
