Kneeling NFL Team Tries Using PATRIOTIC Navy Vet For Damage Control, Gets TOTALLY Humiliated

Sean Brown AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

As the NFL’s ratings continue to plummet, teams are entering damage control mode to try to win back the hearts of former fans, but things didn’t exactly go as planned for the New Orleans Saints.

If you remember, the Saints were one of the teams that just had to stage some sort of protest after President Trump called out their anti-American antics, and they did so while traveling abroad to play in London. At the time, quarterback Drew Brees announced that prior to the playing of our National Anthem, the team would be kneeling, but they would stand once the song started playing.

“As a way to show respect to all, our #Saints team will kneel in solidarity prior to the national anthem & stand together during the anthem.”

The move enraged fans who don’t believe players should be protesting anything on the field. So in an attempt to do damage control during Sunday’s game, the Saints invited U.S. Navy veteran, Cmdr. John Wells, to give him the People’s Health Champion Award in front of the crowd, but Wells wasn’t exactly a fan of the idea.

In fact, Wells basically told the Saints to stick it up their you know whats because he can’t support them, or any other team, allowing the blatant disrespect of our flag and country, WDSU News reported.

“I am unable, in good conscience, to enter an NFL stadium while this discourtesy prevails,” Wells wrote to executives of Peoples Health and the Saints. The award has been “tainted with dishonorable actions” by the league and its players, Wells continued, saying it would be an act of hypocrisy for him to accept it.

“I had hoped and prayed that the NFL would outlaw these disgraceful protests and wanted to give the commissioner and the owners a fair opportunity to do so. Their failure to act is a slap in the face to all of those who have served in uniform. Men and women have fought and died for the flag that the players are disrespecting,” he said.

Apparently Cmdr. Wells, who is the executive director of Military Veterans Advocacy in Slidell, Louisiana and was awarded the Distinguished Military Honor award by veteran’s group Folds of Honor, isn’t going to allow himself to be used as a PR stunt for the NFL.

Ever since this controversy started, the NFL has been hemorrhaging fans at a blinding rate. In fact, this year has seen the league’s lowest ratings since 2015, and there’s even been talks of canceling up to ten Thursday Night Football games as well as rumors that ESPN, which built its network off of the NFL, dropping its coverage of the league altogether once its contract expires.

As a result, teams have been scrambling to do damage control as they realize they’ve made the wrong decision in backing the whiny players rather than sticking to what makes them money and keeping fans entertained.

This entire ordeal should be a lesson to any company or entertainer who thinks it’s a good idea to try to pit Americans against their country. Hint: It’s not.

Hooyah, Cmdr. Wells!
