Fox News reports – Trump said that he and Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who he was rallying for in Huntsville, are “unified” by “great American values.”

“We’re proud of our country and we’re proud of our flag,” Trump said.

He continued on saying that players who disrespect the flag and kneel for the national anthem should be ejected from the stadium and cut from the team.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say “get that son of a b**** off the field right now – HE’S FIRED,” Trump said.

“Some owner is going to do that,” he said.

Trump said players’ shows of disrespect are the main reason behind a decline in NFL ratings.

He also mentioned that the game has grown more litigious, with hard hits and other recurring incidents during a game now being penalized more often.

Trump riffed on a referee from last weekend, saying his wife was likely proud to see him on television so often as he penalized such tackles.

“They’re ruining the game,” he said of anthem-kneeling players and overly litigious officiating standards.

Of course, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell didn’t waste any time adding his two cents. On Saturday morning, he released a statement calling Trump’s remarks “divisive”.

The statement read, “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities”. Well that about figures he’d come out with a garbage statement like that. Now we know, nothing is going to be done about any of this and it’s only going to continue.

During the 2016 NFL season, Colin Kaepernick (then-San Francisco 49er’s QB) decided to do the unthinkable and kneel during the National Anthem. America’s Freedom Fighters previously reported on this story last year. The act of kneeling or sitting during the National Anthem quickly became a trend across the NFL with many other players following suit. Colin Kaepernick claims he was kneeling in protest of police brutailty and racial inequality. Poor Colin, he had it so rough making millions but now he is currently a free agent without a team interest in sight. That’s good, karma at it’s finest!

Most people have forgotten that the NFL has a history of disrepect towards our Country and Armed Forces. On Nov 4th, 2015, Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake released results of a report questioning a Pentagon program that doles out millions of dollars to professional sports.

Richard Sisk of Military.com reported – Many of those heart-rending tributes to the troops at ballparks and football stadiums came with a pricetag to the Defense Department for well-planned public relations efforts to boost recruiting and funding to the military, two senators charged Wednesday.

“Americans deserve the ability to assume that tributes for our men and women in military uniform are genuine displays of national pride, which many are, rather than taxpayer-funded DOD marketing gimmicks,” Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans of Arizona., wrote in a report on the practice.

In a 150-page report titled “Tackling Paid Patriotism,” McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Flake, a member of the Appropriations Committee, cited numerous instances of the military paying for tributes at professional and college sports events.

The report began by citing a 2013 Atlanta Falcons pro football game at which 80 National Guard members unfurled a huge U.S. flag on the field of the Georgia Dome.

“Little did those fans — or millions of other Americans — know that the National Guard had actually paid the Atlanta Falcons for this display of patriotism as part of a $315,000 marketing contract,” the report said.

Other instances of “paid patriotism” cited in the report included:

  • $49,000 to the Milwaukee Brewers for the Wisconsin Army National Guard to sponsor each Sunday performance of “God Bless America” during home games with announcement and logo recognition on the video board.
  • $1,509 for the LA Galaxy (soccer) to provide pre-game recognition of five high ranking officers of the Air Force and 100 general admission tickets to that game.
  • $20,000 to the New York Jets to recognize one-to-two New Jersey Army National Guard soldiers as hometown heroes at each home game on the videoboard and Coaches Club access for the recognized soldier(s) and three guests.

The report also cited instances where the military appeared to be engaged in activities unrelated to marketing and was simply buying tickets and access in what the two senators charged were “taxpayer-funded boondoggles” aimed at securing “VIP perks”:

  • The Air Force paid the Cincinnati Bengals nearly $5,000 for 60 club-level tickets.
  • The National Guard paid the Indianapolis Colts for use of a luxury suite, autographed items, pre-game field visits and cheerleader appearances.
  • The National Guard paid the Boston Bruins for a luxury box for 18 people and an executive view suite for 25 people on military appreciation night.

“In fact, these displays of paid patriotism are included within the $6.8 million that the Department of Defense (DOD) has spent on sports marketing contracts since Fiscal Year 2012,” the report said.

“While many professional sporting teams do include patriotic events as a pure display of national pride, this report highlights far too many instances when that is simply not the case,” the report said. McCain and Flake called on pro sports teams which accepted DOD money for questionable events to donate sums in that total to worthy causes supporting troops and veterans.

Numerous critics have pointed to patriotic displays at sporting events as a sign of the growing rift in American society, often cited by the military itself, between civilians and the so-called “one percent” who serve in uniform.

Ratings and Attendance are down nationwide for the NFL and it’s only projected to get worse from here on out. We The People are pissed off at what we are seeing with these over-paid, wimps who have it so rough making millions per year! It’s all BS and like President Trump has said, NFL owners should FIRE any player who disrespects our Flag and Country – YOU’RE FIRED!

God Bless.
