The controversy over the protests against the National Anthem reached fever pitch this week, and at least one network is saying “no more.”

We’ve previously reported that even before President Trump called out the anti-American players for disrespecting our nation, the NFL was set to lose some $200 million in ad revenues on the year as it saw ratings decline. However, once the leader of the free world weighed in on the issue, the league saw ratings absolutely plummet, along with its brand popularity.


In the wake of the controversy, Fox Sports has decided that it’s not going to let the spoiled brats in the NFL destroy its ratings any longer, and in a shocking move, announced it would no longer be showing the National Anthem being played at the games.

Basically, they took away the platform for these idiots to protest.


From Breitbart News:

Instead, Fox Sports is now saying that they will go back to what they had done in the past, namely, not showing the playing of the anthem during game broadcasts, according to Newsday.


Calling this year, “one of the more bizarre starts to the season that we have ever had,” Fox Sports President Eric Shanks released a statement saying: “The standard procedure is not to show them because of the way the commercial format works and the timing of the anthem to get to the kickoff,” Shanks said Tuesday at an event to promote Fox’s soccer coverage of the 2018 World Cup. “So I think we’re going to pay attention to events.

“Who knows what’s going to happen? A lot of time is happening between now and then. But I think the plan would be to get back to a normal schedule. I think that’s where we sit today on a Tuesday . . . It seems like there’s more than 24 hours in a day now, doesn’t there?”

Of course, while many are likely applauding Fox’s decision to take away the platform for the players to protest, the left is already having a meltdown over it.

Matt Yoder of Awful Announcing, for instance, is furious with Fox for taking away the players’ forum to protest against the country, especially because it will cut off a way to attack Donald Trump.

Yoder slammed Fox saying, “it’s impossible to go back to a normal schedule now when the NFL and its athletes are in the middle of a culture war with the sitting President of the United States.

“The anthem will be a huge story this week and likely will be throughout the remainder of the season as well,” the Awful Announcing writer insisted.

Clearly, Yoder and his liberal media pals want the turmoil to continue, want fans enraged even more, and want to give players who hate the country a platform to announce it to the world.

Indeed, they do, which was the point of this nonsense to begin with – to destroy another American institution, like the left has been doing for decades.

It started with Hollywood and entertainment in general, then moved into the media and our schools, and now it’s sweeping across sports, and in every instance, Americans have become clearly divided between those who love the country and those trying to tear it down.

Let’s not forget, despite the left’s best efforts to convince us these protests aren’t about the flag or the Anthem, the one who engineered them, disgraced quarterback Colin Kaepernick, had the following to say about why he was protesting to begin with:

I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.

In his own words, he sought to divide this country. So it stands to reason that anyone carrying on with the same protests are guilty of attempting to do the same.

Thankfully, it appears as if Americans as a whole are sick of it, and they’re going to exercise their own right to simply tune out these ungrateful bastards.
