The NFL announced Thursday they will be halting their decision to prevent players from kneeling for the National Anthem. This was after the Miami Dolphins announced they will fine and suspend players for protesting the Flag.
After this announcement President Trump went to Twitter to take his shot at the NFL.
“The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again – can’t believe it! Isn’t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand. First time kneeling, out for game. Second time kneeling, out for season/no pay!”
The NFL needs to take notice the fans are not happy with players protesting the flag in such a disrespectful way. NFL Ratings have been free falling over the last few years since the protest began and will not recover if this continues.
Vince McMahon the owner of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced 6 months ago he will be relaunching the Extreme Football League (XFL). And I am sure he is loving the NFL is chasing their fan base off. The XFL has rules to not allow any political protests and criminals are not allowed to play in the league.
