FINALLY: NFL Player Cut From The Colts For National Anthem Protest

Now that these stupid and offensive national anthem protests have become trendy for overpaid athletes and people are tuning out the NFL, team owners are starting to realize their brands are being severely damaged.

Antonio Cromartie of the Indianapolis Colts has apparently been cut from the team for kneeling during the national anthem and raising his fist. Maybe if this had been done weeks ago, the NFL wouldn’t be having this problem.
The Tribunist reports:

NFL Player Cut for National Anthem Protest. Team Owner Says NFL is the “Wrong Venue” for Protesting.

Several NFL players have been the subject of controversy for the better part of the 2016 season when they’ve chosen to sit during the anthem, protesting for oppressed minorities in America. It has become a national conversation with Americans weighing in on both sides of the issue.

Many feel that the NFL has done little to combat this disrespect to the flag and military, but certain owners have reportedly told players they will not sit during the anthem. This hasn’t previously cost anyone their job, until now.

    Finally something is done. If they had of done this in the first there would not be the problems that exist today. Games are not the place to do what the players are doing. People go to the games to relax and enjoy and not see more politics played out. They want to relax and enjoy. Had Goodell done his job right the first time – all of this other could have been avoided. He has created a “firestorm” and it all rests on his shoulders entirely. He needs to get some smarts and immediately. Shameful situation that could have been avoided,

    The so called minorities will never be satisfied. There will always be division on racial lines.The world order don’t even have make much of an effort to create and maintain racial hatred and division around the world.Just make someone feel sorry for themselves and then blame white people for their woes. This statement is not intended to further fuel racial hatred. A fact is a fact.

    Wasn’t the “Hands up don’t shoot” LIE the start of all this BS?

    I agree with Fannie completely. It is on the commissioner. Good for the owners of the Colts. This player may get hired by another team. That is the hard part of doing the right thing. The Colts are still better for this players’ absence. I’m pulling for the Colts, starting now.

    I recognize the right of NFL to allow this action by their product.

    I don’t have to buy the product.

    Seems simple enough to me.

    Consumers need to understand that WE run a free economy, not, millionaires or the government.

    When players consider this to be tere are not many games availabgle thee same.

    Creative – Thiis mode is just for the player to build or
    destroy the structures at their very own mood they aren’t died as a result
    of hunger annd drowning. Consistency of clloth will als be helpful once you’re all ready ffor the removal

    I’m done with the NFL and their politicizing. The NFL is anti gun but look at the criminal history of their employees the “players”. Calling them players is actually pretty accurate now that I think about it. Because they’re playing all of their fans as fools that are easily cowed to “sympathize” with their crybaby antics.

    They have shown their true feelings and there is no going back. Kneeling is a passive easy way to get attention that doesn’t accomplish anything for whatever they say they’re kneeling for this week. Has crime and murders decreased due to the kneeling? Has literacy improved due to kneeling? Are more low income fathers taking better care of their families due to the kneeling? These are the things that matter.

    If white players held up the Nazi salute during the anthem they would be crucified by the MSM and all over the internet. But a black person holds up the fist for black power and it’s considered “free speech” or “free expression”.

    I SAY NO! The fist for black power is just as much a racist hate symbol as the Nazi salute. Regardless of a person’s skin color racism needs to be called out for the hate that it represents and that person be taught a better way.

    If these players really wanted to make a difference they could donate money to schools with poor literacy rates for more teachers and tutors, volunteer at a local community center with youth, join a police or gang taskforce on the front lines fighting drugs and crime and connect with people and encourage them to be a better person.

    Sadly, most of the kneelers love their money and fame. If you take away the money than they will know true hardship like many of their fans living paycheck to paycheck.

    If there was a systemic problem with police killing black people you wouldn’t be able to walk 10 feet without stepping over a dead black person. That was said by a very intelligent black guy in a Youtube video calling out the stupid players.

    If there is black oppression why are there more black football and basketball players now then decades ago when both sports were played mostly by white guys? If there is so much black oppression now how is it that we had a black president for eight years with a black wife and two black daughters? Another Youtube video I came across the black guy said the fact that we had a black president for eight years proves there is NO black oppression.

    #BoycottNFL #NFLburnnotice #MAGA make America great again for the benefit of everyone.

    On Youtube checkout Red Pill Black, Diamond and Silk, Antonia Okafor, ThinkingIsFree2016, and look up Larry Elder.

    Do you have heart or hate?
    With one inside you the other ain’t.
