NFL ‘Inmates’ DEMAND Owners Support Kneeling Protests, Get BRUTAL Response [Video]


If certain team owners get their way, the Anthem protests will be a thing of the past.

Like the smart businessmen they are, they realize that the childish anti-American displays are harming the sport and turning fans away by the millions. In fact, the NFL has seen its lowest ratings since 2015, which is due in large part to the players disrespecting both our flag and our military.


Amid the controversy, a group of team owners and players held a meeting in which they discussed several topics, including the Anthem protests. During the meeting, Jets linebacker DeMario Davis stood up and told team owners that the protests are meaningful to played, then demanded they get on board with them despite the fact they’re hurting business.

“I’m going to break it down for you guys,” Davis said. “You guys aren’t supporting us, and until you do, there’s going to be an issue.”


As you can imagine, Davis’s comments weren’t received too well by those who write the paychecks, including Texans owner Bob McNair. McNair was one of 11 representatives for the NFL at the meeting, and he smacked down those wanting to protest when speaking to other owners after the meeting.


We can’t have the inmates running the prison,” McNair said to the other NFL owners, the New York Post reported.

Indeed they can’t. Look what it’s doing to what used to be Americans’ beloved sport.

He’s not the only team owner who sees this, either. Owners Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder also commented on the protesting, although they weren’t invited to the Oct. 17 meeting McNair attended.

From the Post:

It wasn’t the only questionable thing a team owner said the day after the meeting. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and Cowboys boss Jerry Jones — who were not invited to the meeting with the players — both spoke about the business impact the national anthem protests were having.

While Jones was speaking, Snyder added: “See, Jones gets it — 96 percent of Americans are for guys standing.” This claim was not well received, according to ESPN.

While McNair initially took a stand against the players, once his comments came to light he backed away from them entirely. On Friday morning, he released a statement apologizing for calling the players “inmates,” even though it was only a figure of speech.

“I regret that I used that expression,” McNair’s statement said. “I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players. I used a figure of speech that was never intended to be taken literally. I would never characterize our players or our league that way and I apologize to anyone who was offended by it.”

Once again, the NFL has a real problem on its hands, and people like Snyder, McNair, and Jones seem to understand what it is. Unfortunately, Commissioner Roger Goodell has allowed this to persist for far too long, so it’s unlikely the NFL will be winning back the hearts of patriotic Americans any time in the near future.
