Sponsor Drops Brandon Marshall For Kneeling During National Anthem

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is out a sponsorship deal after he kneeled during the national anthem before Thursday night’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Air Academy Federal Credit Union posted to Facebook that, “although we have enjoyed Brandon Marshall as our spokesperson over the past five months, Air Academy Federal Credit Union (AFFCU) has ended our partnership.”

“I’m not against the military,” Marshall said after the game. “I’m not against the police or America. I’m just against social injustice.”

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand for the anthem during the preseason, a protest against the way African-Americans and other minorities are treated in American society, has had a ripple effect throughout the NFL, with other players following suit.

“Colin is my fraternity brother, my ex-teammate, and I believe in what he’s trying to do. I believe in his actions. So I definitely want to stand by him,” Marshall said.

“While we respect Brandon’s right of expression, his actions are not a representation of our organization and membership,” AAFCU posted. “We wish Brandon well on his future endeavors.”

The Denver Broncos released a statement about the matter to NBC, the network that broadcasted the game:

While we encourage members of our organization to stand during the national anthem, we understand and respect it being a personal decision.

On Friday Broncos Coach Gary Kubiak addressed the kneeling, saying Marshall “has a right to his beliefs, and I’m going to keep us focused on football.”

Marshall says he’ll continue to refuse to stand during the anthem.

“I feel like this is the right platform. This is our only platform to really be heard. And I feel a lot of times people want us to just shut up and entertain them, shut up and play football. But we have voices as well. We’re actually educated individuals that went to college. So when we have an opinion and we speak it, I feel a lot of people bash us for what we have to say.”

      To not stand for our National Anthem and disrespect our Flag is unacceptable! We have had a family member in all the wars dating back to WW1,as I know of,losing many to injury or death. Our family feels personally insulted by the NFL members and Commissioner.

      NFL & it’s players dishonored their contract agreement to respect our American Flag & National Anthem! They do NOT have a right to their political protest while at WORK! Fans PAY to watch an American Football Game lead by our National Anthem, NOT arrogant millionaire players who THINK they can force THEIR politics down OUR throats on OUR time at OUR EXPENSE!

      Blacks act like they are the only ones who have ever experienced social injustice. There are other venues or platforms to bring up these concerns, you don’t have to dis-honor or dis-respect our national anthem & flag to have your voice heard.Speaking for myself, I am tired of all the whining & protesting, & burning & chaos in the streets. I think there are puppet-masters behind the scenes pulling the strings. I think George Sorros is one of the main persons who would just looovve to bring this country to it’s knees.There are many more whom I think, think little enough of our country to help him do it. Just stop & think what kind of country you would have if he & those who share his warped view of the world were to accomplish their goals.You talk about social injustices, you would really know what the word really meant.

    Deport this Marxist indoctrinated idiot to Africa. African blacks despise his type for being spoiled and ungrateful for living in America.(they’d be even more so if they knew how much he gets paid just for a stupid game fighting over who gets to kick a leather ball) It probably won’t happen because in actual fact The Donald is a softie at heart.Hope he finds a good way though to kick these Marxist indoctrinated idiots up their backsides.Bigtime.

    Boycott the sponsors and the NFL, praise the players who stand and show respect, boycott the rest. Social injustice? You need to look at the statistics, Black on black crime is what is destroying them. You will be questioned more when more blacks than Hispanics, Asian or whites commit the crimes. Stand up and do something for your community. Give them a hand up not a handout. Help get them off drugs, welfare, and dependency on anyone else. Do some good for your community. You are making millions of dollars and what are you doing to help your fellow man? Put your money where your mouth is.

    THERE IS NO SOCIAL INJUSTICE, THE SOCIAL INJUSTICE IS CREATED BY YOUR PERSONAL LIFE STYLE. YOU PLAYERS MAKE MILLIONS, DO NOT DEFEND AMERICA, JUST INSULT THIS GREAT COUNTRY WHICH YOU WERE FORTUNATE TO BE A CITIZEN OF. DO YOU USE YOUR WEALTH TO HELP INNER CITY CHILDREN, I DOUBT IT. SO GET UP AND STAND FOR THE FORTUNE YOU HAVE, THAT YOU ARE AMERICAN, PEOPLE OF ALL COLOR SUFFER FOR LACK OF THE FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY YOU DISGRACE. OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN IN THE MILITARY, PUT THEIR LIVES IN HARMS WAY SO YOU CAN PLAY A ENTERTAINING GAME AND MAKE FORTUNES, WHILE THE MILITARY PERSON MAKES $32,000.

    Even if he get pass with this because it is his right, he should be fired because it is clearly stated in the league’s book (pages A62-63, that states:

    “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

    “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

    I disagree it is not the platform for what you are doing, and you are being paid millions of dollars a year not including bonuses to entertain the very people who either purchased tickets to a game or tune in on there television, so yes during the games we do want you to just play the game, that is what we paid you for that’s why you made the team for your ability to play football, not your ability to disrespect our country and our flag.
    I don’t have a problem with speaking up about social injustices or anything else you feel passionate about, but not on the field and not against our flag, it is because of that flag the men and women who have died to protect you and your freedoms so that you bunch of ingrates have the freedom of speech and you disrespect them by kneeling during something that they have fought for, that is like spitting in every member of the military both dead and alive. Yes you have a voice but use it in a constructive manner, go out fight for your community’s share the wealth that you have made to help these communities in the schools in the streets fight for new laws, but nothing will be accomplished or get better why you all take a knee except more division. Get your hands dirty go clean up some of these neighborhoods start new programs in schools donate some new books, you want to empower black people, empower them by showing them what hard work dedication and studying hard can accomplish, because right now by kneeling you are not fighting for them your just copying what someone else has done, because before Colin took a knee, you never once complained that the National Anthem made you feel oppressed or any other excuse you have.
    Not one of you are oppressed not when you are making millions of dollars each year from the very same white people who you feel has done you all wrong. Shame on every player who has taken a knee during our National Anthem, can’t think for yourselves you all are playing follow the leader only your leader is no longer playing football because of his disgraceful display of disrespect of our men & women in uniform and not just the military either.Without us football fans you have no over paid jobs you ingratiate.
    You disrespect our flag our National Anthem and our Military Who would and have laid down there lives to protect cry babies like you, I know what this country has given you, but what have you ever given back to this great country and our Military with no rewards attached, yeah that would be nothing, try giving something back to them, with no strings attached, you want to use your voice how about talking about the suicide rate in our Military or how so many of them are homeless, so until then, yes shut up.

Your right to speak your mind looks more like Disrepect of our Great country! Wonder why you didn’t feel the need to act during past administrations? Was social justice better then? Your philosophy would be better served if you put your money where your opinion is, and give your salaries to the poor and disadvantaged you seek to help!

There are people of all colors and ethnic backgrounds that feel slighted… or somehow treated unfairly… BUT tell me, please… what does the flag have to do with that? Where in this world will you have a better opportunity? Idiots, every one!

    “this is the only platform we have to be heard” !!! BS. They have more doors open to them to make the change they are looking for without doing it on the field. DO YOUR JOB!!! and take up your issues on your own time! This is disgraceful and they should all be fired along with the coaches that allow it. Maybe this action will show our children that these guys are not idols, they are spoiled brats. Being a Navy veteran and seeing what those who fight for the flag go through to allow you to play your games makes me sick! I for one will no longer support you and I hope the entire industry goes broke!

    Just more typical reactions to what they think is mistreated. How is someone mistreated that is paid millions to play football. They all should be ashamed but it comes back to how they were raised and it is evident that most of them were raised with disrespect. I defended this country so that they can show their ignorance and they are doing a good job at it.

    Personal views are not something you air at your place of employment. They are only doing it for the “free airtime”. Fans do not watch football to hear your cause for “social justus”. Take your million dollar salaries and help your local communities better themselves. That is where you will see real tangible change. I am pleased to see a business standing a firm ground that the NFL has gone to far with this whole mess. The NFL had better own it and put policies in place to ensure that your personal political views are not brought into I NFL arena, locker rooms or anywhere else.

Help our senior citizens who are barely surviving. For our neighborhood who people are afraid to come out of there homes at night.

    Go to Chicago and put your words into action if you are so bothered. Become a positive force – not negative. Instead, you and your ilk want to tear down statues of people that have been dead for 150 years and blame people like me that have worked my ass off to improve civil rights for everybody.

    Americans, for the most part, realize that this is just plain wrong, not illegal, but, wrong, nevertheless. Sponsors that ditch these players are doing the right thing. We can not support or respect these egregious acts.It is only showing their blatant lack of patriotism towards our flag and nation. Their desire to bring attention to their racial causes are not being served in a positive manner, and as a matter of fact are doing just the opposite. These players have much brawn but, little gray matter.

When I went to college, I too was but a poor young woman. I paid full price for my education as a Paramedic?Flight Nurse/ Firefighter. Everyone whos skin is darker than mine, get more grants and “special” privileges. I put my life on the line, as well as my coworkers to save all lives. Now color in my vision, or in my world. Social injustice ??? read your history books, it has existed since the beginning of time, to all peoples of the world. Dwell in that past, and you make it worse, instead of giving a helping hand, giving encouragement,,, every one has a choice. You decide what you want for your life… not “social”injustice” not Alibaba, not Trump, Not Obama, YOU are in control. You want something, don’t use a stage, begin at home, and in your community.Just please stop spreading this insanity, it is NOT the way to fix anything, as history has proven. Action and reaction, its up to each one of us as individuals, to be willing to bond with another, to strengthen each other. Be careful not to divide Humanity… that will prove to be fatal. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Is he insane, the anthem protest is not his only platform! His locker room is crawling with media on a daily basis. He has post game on camera interview opportunities. He has access to social media platforms. Use them to educate and inform people to move toward your goals. He instead chooses to poke a stick in the eye of a sizable contingent of the very people whose hearts and minds he (supposedly)seeks to change.

  44. Sheryl A Koller

    September 25, 2017 at 5:44 pm

    One very simple way of solving the problem! If he doesn’t want to stand for the National Anthem and the flag, don’t let him participate in the pre-game! He can stay in the locker room on his knees until the kick-off! The constitution says nothing about where said person can be while exercising his or her rights!

      September 25, 2017 at 10:32 pm

      Actually, that would be a direct violation of the OFFICIAL NFL RULE which requires all players and coaches to be on the sideline, standing, helmet in left hand, right hand over heart and not talking, as the National Anthem is played.

    Social injustice? Here is what is unjust, a bunch of unappreciative self-centered rich morons who fail to get that people pay to see football, not expressions of their misguided beliefs. Yesterday’s NFL would not have tolerated thus, or anything else, that distracted from what people PAY to see. Neither owners, the league or other players would have stood for any player who disrespected the fans like this.

    The flag and what it represents​ has no baring on your protest , this is disrespectful to America and all the men and women that have fought for the freedoms that we as Americans are afforded , y’all are being ignorant .

    There will always be social injustice of some sort. All these jackasses need their knees taken out so they could never “take a knee” again!

    The field is not a place to show disrespect toward the flag or America. We are being faced with times where we should be standing together stronger than ever not causing more tension and racial divide. Dont act like overpaid babies, “We The People” help pay your saleries.

    You know what? That is just fine. Players have the right to protest however they feel. Well, guess what? Viewers, spectators, and sponsors also have a right to not participate in viewing or sponsoring the games either. So that means less money in the end for the NFL, their players and networks! Good luck with that. LOSERS!

    I stand for our country, veterans and current personnel who are serving our country.also their families who serve as well. I feel they are being disrespected by these highly paid athletes. We don’t wAtch any one but the cowboys because of their strong leadership to our flag and national anthem. A.if these who think they are kneeling for the abused take some of your millions and go back k home and help the impoverished. That’s what George Foreman did and is still doing it. Lead by example.

    Just ‘coz you (Brandon) are unhappy with some thing or people, it doesn’t mean you can abuse the flag/country. So if I am unhappy with you/action, is it then ok if I abuse your wife, children & family? Of course not.
    Makes you wonder if CTE has affected the senses of these NFL players.

    It’s just so strange that our President considers taking a knee during our national anthem to be disrespectful to our country when that is what soldiers do when honoring a fallen soldier (albeit next to their grave/body), but when people wave confederate/nazi flags around, there are some nice people among them.

    Social injustice? I guess I missed the boat on this one. Social injustice is when your actions and words garnish you a negative response from society. This is a not a chicken or egg question. If you act like an idiot, society will treat you like an idiot. If you act respectable, society will treat you accordingly. It seems you are wanting society to turn their heads whenever you go off the deep end about something that is intellectually crude or shunned. You reap what you sow. Quit blaming society for your own stupidity.

    You are not a social justice warrior, you are an entertainer, get on the field and entertain.

    What these sniveling little over paid brats don’t understand is that these sponsors pay MILLIONS to the NFL for advertisement and when their representative gives them a black eye they are going to drop them in 2 shakes of a lambs tail and they don’t care about your feelings,it’s business baby and business is fixing to get real bad for the No Fans Left bunch. So Colin Kaperinick will have lots of Company with other losers who will be pounding the pavement looking for a team to take them but there won’t be teams left because Americans are sick of your Entitlement attitude and your thinking that you have been so socially put down and done wrong. Get over yourselves. Now this is how a Protest works. Read em and weep boys.

    They’re all absolutely entitled to their opinion/belief. That takes a back seat when they’re on the clock, just like any other job. They work a couple hours, one day a week, 16 days a year, chasing a ball. My dog does that well too, and he can run a lot faster than every one of them. That leaves 349 more days for most of them to be sjw’s. Gtf over yourself, Marshall.

    Good for the Credit Union. I applaud their decision. It is apparent that Marshall doesn’t have a clue about how to help solve the ‘real’ issue. Monkey see monkey do is how I see it. God bless our Country, our military and those who have died to keep our freedom. Thank you President Trump for having the guts to say what millions of Americans are thinking. The mighty dollar doesn’t always prevail!!
