If someone thought the protests during NFL games was a big joke last season, then think again. There is one team who is so bad that they must be begging for attention and now they’re offering to pay the fines for their disrespectful America-hating millionaire athletes who abuse their privilege by ruining sports entertainment for Americans. You probably think it’s the Cleveland Browns, but for once it’s not the Browns who are the laughing stock of a joke. The Browns made their mistakes during the NFL draft. Now it’s time for the NY Jets to look like modern day imbeciles as the CEO won’t step in and put his employees in check. He’s letting his workers run the circus as his fans dwindle away and watch other things on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays.
ESPN reported: “Despite a unanimously approved league policy that requires players to stand if they’re on the field during the national anthem, New York Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said Wednesday he won’t discourage players from kneeling even if it results in the club being fined by the NFL.
“As I have in the past, I will support our players wherever we land as a team,” Johnson said in a statement, adding that he intends to meet with coach Todd Bowles and the players to discuss the league’s decision. “Our focus is not on imposing any club rules, fines or restrictions.”
According to the revised policy, the league has the power to fine a team if club personnel don’t stand during the anthem. The players have the option of remaining in the locker room. Johnson, attending the owners’ meetings in Atlanta, told Newsday, “If the team gets fined, that’s just something I’ll have to bear.”
If we factor that in with what Trump said, then we sure have a lot to talk about when it comes to the players abusing their privileges.
President Donald Trump was very stern when he was talking about the disrespectful NFL players who abuse their platform, fame, and status as a millionaire athlete to protest during their work hours and ruin the entertainment sport of football by injecting it with their personal agenda and politics. Lots of NFL fans expressed their distaste for stepping on the American flag in the players protests, regardless of the cause, and essentially showing an utter lack of respect for the nation that gave them the chance to play a kids game for enough money to make them look like modern day capitalists taking advantage of throwing a ball around. Millions of us love football, myself included, but the protests and sideshows have taken their toll and remind many viewers of high school girls who always have drama at school and then later wonder why no one wants to be their friends. It’s a page out of the Hollywood book on how to ruin entertainment, but the celebrities who continue abusing their own platform simply don’t get it either.
President Trump was talking about the ‘take a knee’ protests and simply stated that players who don’t support the national anthem should “not be in the country.” What does that mean? Perhaps a one-way ticket to play football in some other country where they’ll tolerate athletes protesting during their work hours. It jokingly sounds like Trump wants to deport every player who disrespects the flag, and there are probably many Americans who wish the same thing. However, legally, that might not be a realistic option. There is always the chance that one of the “take a knee” protesters will deport themselves. One could hope, right? After all, if you’re in America and don’t love it here, then there’s always the option to leave, right?
Here’s what TMZ said: “Donald Trump fully supports the new NFL policy on the national anthem — says players who don’t stand should maybe “not be in the country.”
The President spoke with “FOX & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade — saying, “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing. You shouldn’t be there.”
He added. “Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.”
There’s one part of the new policy Trump didn’t like — the option players have to stay in the locker room.
“I don’t think people should be staying in locker rooms. But still I think it’s good.”
Of course, Trump has been railing for a while against players who demonstrate during the anthem — and wanted NFL owners to fire Colin Kaepernick for starting the movement.
By the way, Donald Trump has bragged how much he opposed the Vietnam War — the method of protest back then was burning the flag.”
If players have the option to stay in the locker room during the national anthem, then that’s just as bad as taking a knee. What’s the difference? It still shows disrespect for the country. It doesn’t matter what the players are protesting. They are not on the football field stage to voice their opinions about politics. They are there to win football games and give American fans an entertaining show. We legally cannot have gladiators battling with swords and shields anymore, so this is the closest thing we’ll get in comparison to the real men who fought it out in front of spectators.
Today’s athletes and celebrities need to remember that their fans only want a show and to be entertained. If people want politics, then they’ll go somewhere for that. People are exhausted from sports and entertainment being ruined by athletes and actors who think we care what they have to say. We don’t care. We just want to be entertained after a long day or week at our jobs and we would like the professionals who earn millions to respect that and voice their political views on their own personal time just like everyone else.
They may have more money than most of us, but they still need to be put in their place sometimes.
Trump would deport them if he could. Sadly, he cannot, but let this be a warning to the people peddling their unwanted opinions during our beloved sports and movies.
Will the athletes finally stop taking a knee and ruining our sports?
Did the NFL finally learn its lesson after what happened with the fans last year?

Patriots Former Tight End Martellus Bennett Just Made Sickening Allegation About Trump
He can’t be serious with these claims.
The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Breitbart.
Former Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett went on the attack Wednesday, accusing President Trump of “attacking black culture” with his criticism of NFL player protests during the national anthem.
Speaking to Bleacher Report, the former NFL player slammed Trump for his criticism of the protests and claimed that Trump’s attacks are just a way to tear down black role models.
“It’s the easiest way for him to attack the culture of black people,” the Super Bowl 51 champion said. “He sees the black athlete as someone that black people look up to. So he thinks you can attack black culture by attacking black NFL players.”
Bennett also implied that he thinks Trump’s voters are racially motivated. “Also, attacking black players helps him with his base,” he said.
Or, he pontificated, “maybe there’s no rhyme or reason. Maybe he’s just an asshole.”
Bennett has made his feelings about Trump known before. Last year he noted that he would not visit the Trump White House to celebrate his 2016 Super Bowl win, as a member of the New England Patriots.
He also took to Twitter to slam singer Kanye West for saying nice things about Trump. “So Kanye didn’t take the time to vote. And now he holding on to Trump’s coattail like Peter Pettigrew to Lord Voldemort. Kanye Pettigrew,” Bennett tweeted (then deleted) in December of 2016.
NFL Team Announces They Will Go Beyond Fines When Penalizing Players Who Kneel For Anthem
They’re not gonna like this!!
At least one NFL team has come to the conclusion that their money-losing race-baiting nonsense kneelers who ruin entertainment by abusing their platform to protest during work hours could be punished by suspending the players who engage in such pathetic behavior. I’m talking about the players who take a knee to protest and the Miami Dolphins are about to start punishing people for not having “Proper Anthem Conduct!” After a horrid 6-10 season last year, the Dolphins probably thought it was the least they could to do bring back fans who boycotted the NFL after a wave of activist millionaires started taking a knee. The only time “taking a knee” ever meant anything was when Tonya Harding allegedly had someone take Nancy Kerrigan’s knee back in 1994.
The Dolphins new policy suggests that any player who protests on the field during the national anthem might face a suspension of up to four games. That’s quite a few games lost for being a social justice warrior. Hopefully, the players who face this suspension are also losing their paycheck for those weeks.
This is quite an improvement for the NFL as teams with protesting players should always suspend them. It’s not their personal time, nor their platform to protest on. These players are at work and protesting during work hours should always be punishable by the boss. If any of us protested at work, then we would probably be disciplined too, especially if it made our customers turn their backs. Why should it be any different for football players?
“Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.
The “Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a large list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both.
Miami’s anthem policy comes after the NFL decided in May that teams would be fined if players didn’t stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” while on the field. The league left it up to teams on how to punish players. None of the team policies have been made public.
The NFL rule forbids players from sitting or taking a knee if they are on the field or sidelines during the national anthem, but allows them to stay in the locker room if they wish. The new league rules were challenged this month in a grievance by the players union.”
The ‘take a knee’ nonsense dates back to when Colin Kaepernick was protesting and we all see how that turned out. He’s no longer in the league and at this point, there’s no chance for him to come back. He keeps getting older and likely deteriorating. See what social justice did to him? It cost him his career. What does he do now? Hopefully, he saved some of the money he made while playing, that way he can survive, but he could have been earning millions more for him to spend, donate, or invest. If he’s broke, then oh well. Serves him right for dissing the American flag like that.
When people abuse their platform in entertainment, then fans are often turned off by it. We watch sports, television programs, and movies as a form of entertainment and escapism. We want to be immersed into a story, drama, and something that’s simply there to keep us entertained for an hour or two. As soon as people start protesting during sports, then some people are like “no thanks” and immediately shut it down.
People don’t like protesters and they don’t like their entertainment ruined. What happens when you combine the two? It’s like mixing bleach and ammonia. It’s a very bad idea and it could kill their careers.
We have a few months until the regular season begins for the NFL. That means a lot of teams have plenty of time to get their punishments ready for the disrespectful players.
