A modest proposal for NFL fans:
Be a flash mob

American Thinker, by Patricia McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/24/2017 6:17:36 AM

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

This is completely do-able, even today, if the word gets out. Watch the video and notice how everyone else stops what they are doing and listens as the National Anthem is sung in a hotel by a flash mob.

An even louder protest would be,"just don´t show up in the first place"

Rudity in the service of killing cops should end the career of any professional sports figure. Very important not to patronize rude people and people who think killing cops is a good idea. Any defense of BLM just exes you off my play list. No time for trash.

October 15 - The Ides of October. All law abiding and America loving citizens shut off the TV and refuse to watch NFL. Write off your tickets for that day since it will probably be a lousy game anyway.

Hey, if this goes on much longer without consequences, college teams will be doing it. And the flaky university administrations will allow it - even encourage it. Note well that last week sometime a PeeWee Football team ´took the knee´ - most kids under 8. Total indoctrination - the discussion was that this was what to do because white cops were killing black people. No parent objected that I know of.

MLB Playoffs. World Series. NHL. Then pitchers and catchers report to Spring training. I´m down with it. Haven´t seen one NFL game yet, and will not. ESPN has not been on in my home in over six months. I do part time work for an NFL franchise, attendant in the parking lot. Get first-hand glimpses of the fan base. I subtly push my agenda of recognizing the pointlessness of this league with all it´s PCBS. I Love reading the stories of tanking attendance and dangerously low TV audience. Strength in numbers erased a Clinton presidency, and it will continue to deliver us these victories in the infected marketplace where Leftism wants to mark it´s territory. If this NFL thing (I´ll call it a boycott) succeeds, we march forward proudly and confidently towards our next challenge. We are 63,000,000 strong. Keep praying and do not walk away from the fight.

Watched some man on the street re: Fox this a.m. on this subject. Though the majority agree with freedom of speech et al., they are also disgusted that players making millions are acting like spoiled brats, protesting who knows what. Those all for the Kaporniks etc. spouted idiocies like this is a Church and State issue!!!!!!! Most egregious, however, are the Godells and others who say nary a word when players beat their wives, rape their girlfriends or have massive bar brawls of their own making. THAT is o.k. I hope this hits them all in the pocketbook---they deserve it! And it seems to be the only thing they understand.

From this day forward, not one dime of my money goes to buying pro sports tickets. My TV will not be tuned to "the game." Not one minute will be devoted to rehashing over coffee the next morning. (Fortunately, this will not require a change in my lifestyle.) For the life of me, I do not understand this obsession, but spoiled one-per-center players´ boorish behavior certainly continues to illustrate my longstanding conviction that football players are not too bright, and remain uncivilized, despite their undeserved wealth.

Don´t forget merchandising revenues. Never buy any product with a team logo or NFL logo. Also, while letter-writing does little good with politicians, businesses are another matter. Swamp the NFL and the local franchises with letters plainly stating that you observed xyz team taking a knee and will no longer watch that team on TV or travel to the stadium for the occasional visit. Inundate their mail rooms.

Or, go to the stadium but stay outside with your friends and tailgate. The NFL already made money on the sale of your ticket but they won´t make any additional money selling beer and food.

And for those of us who never go to the games, stop purchasing official NFL merchandise.

When Roger Goodell asks for respect for the players and DeMaurice Smith says they are looking out for the well-being and safety of their players, they need to explain to us about Aqib Talib

Why was it all right with you that Aqib Talib facemasked Corey Brown in the Super Bowl in 2016?

- 15 yards penalty for the facemasking
- 15 yards penalty for taunting
- $26,000 approx for a fine
- Placed on the list of the top 100 NFL players in 2016

You guys were not looking out for Corey Brown and it was a clear message you were okay with what Aqib Talib did.

The pity of this political protest behavior is that it negates the good community work which some of the players do and in this respect are good role models. The owners seem afraid of disciplining their employees, almost intimidated by them and by the thought of losing out on winning games, thereby losing their principles.

Let´s make it easy - Papa John´s is the official pizza of the NFL. Don´t buy their pizza on October 15th - but first a national blitz to ensure this gets sufficient publicity and national level support. They are the target because they are more easily affected. "Real patriots" can sit outside the local pizza outlets with signs declaring the one-day boycott, and the reason. Very simply, that Papa supports on-field political action by the NFL, commissioner, owners and players. Please support the boycott today.

One "sponsor" hit with an effective and reasonable boycott is a shot across the bow of others, very easily organizable (one person per store can make it happen), and has local effect for TV to take interest and cover, i.e. the franchisee is taking the hit for Papa and his millionaire QB partner, who is also plugging other stuff on TV.

If you´re serious...get out your markers, a piece of cardboard and a lawn chair.

Pardon me, but this will be solved through the influence of the sports betting community. The NFL is a gambling bonanza for the casino´s sports books and, ultimately,the mob.

Like Castro nationalizing the Cuban casinos, the syndicate put the pressure on Kennedy to fix it. (see Bay of Pigs, Grassy knoll)

If the NFL seriously falters, pressure will be brought to the forefront from the "back room lobby" to stop the PC crap and putt butts in the seats!

Does anyone even know what they are protesting? Do they even know? If you must protest, do it in a grown up manner. I suggest that these over paid crybabies walk a day in a soldiers shoes in a combat zone. Maybe then they´ll understand what the American Anthem and flag really do mean.

As a long time NFL fan, I have had enough. I am using the "flash" button on my remote, and getting my entertainment elsewhere. Since the bulk of NFL revenue comes via TV, cable, and advertising royalties, that is far more effective than whatever happens in the stands.

College football was exciting and entertaining yesterday. As long as their players respect my flag and country, I will continue to watch.

This is war. As long as our entertainers protest my country, I will boycott them. All of them. That is a small sacrifice for me, compared with the sacrifices of those who put everything on the line for our flag, anthem, and country.

The protest day should be called " Patrick Tillman Day.

Pat Tillman"
American football player and soldier

Patrick Daniel Tillman (November 6, 1976 – April 22, 2004) was a professional American football player in the National Football League (NFL) who left his sports career and enlisted in the United States Army in June 2002 in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. His service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and subsequent death, were the subject of much media attention.

Tillman joined the Army Rangers and served several tours in combat before he died in the mountains of Afghanistan." In the fog of war, inexplicable things happen, Patrick died from friendly fire.

Patrick´s personal views about the war were obvious. US Troops were fighting a war that could not be won...thanks to Congress. But he joined because he felt combat on a football field was nothing, and the money ill gotten gains when free troops were dying on the battle field.

There is a big difference between getting hit on a football field and getting up and going back to the huddle.

When you get hit on a battle field you may come back home in a box.

I expect the NFL to play hardball. And that the MSM will side with them in every way it can.

The "Official Story" will almost certainly be that boycotts, protests, etc. have had only a trivial effect.

So the NFL can be punished a little but it will be years before they hurt much.

Some teams get - or used to - 100% of parking revenue. Unless it is already prepaid for the season don´t park at the stadium if you feel you must see the game.

Newsflash: The War on Christmas is over.

You have lost. We…have lost. According to the latest results from the Pew Research Center – and already being gleefully shouted from the rooftops of certain left-leaning media sites orchestrating the campaign against faith-based Christmas – while 90 percent of Americans still celebrate Christmas in one way or another, a majority find that the religious elements of Christmas are emphasized less and less and

I have a theory. It is not that the scales have fallen from our eyes about sexual harassment. It’s that the cultural left has run out of game. Without game, it can’t pass off sleazy exploitation as something else. Neo-avant-gardist art, brand-leveraged politics, deconstructionist philosophy, spectacle, fashion, the Lacanian Real - - none of these are any longer up to the task. Transgressive politics are dead. Worse, they’re boring.

Now we know that not only did Hillary Clinton show intent in her handling of classified materials routed through her private server, but that former FBI Director James Comey and his team showed intent in letting her get away with it, to the detriment of American national security. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Christopher Wray, reveals how edits to Comey’s exoneration memo went beyond changing “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” but edited out content that shows the FBI knew Hillary was intentionally in violation of the Espionage Act

Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly

A lot of frustration has been expressed – on these pages and elsewhere – over the slow pace of progress in unraveling the Deep State coup against Trump. But, “the process of uncovering the worst political scandal in American history” as I called it a couple of days ago, needs to be done the right way, or else it will founder under the waves of abuse that will pour from the media and political branches of the establishment.

Resistance to the Trump administration within the intelligence community is beginning to unravel. When Mick Mulvaney was selected to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), he complimented the staff for being professional. There are a significant number of CFPB employees opposed to the president and any of his appointees. They have formed a resistance group they call Dumbledore´s Army. Although members of other departments, agencies, and bureaus do not call themselves Dumbledore´s Army, they are essentially of the same mindset. Perhaps the largest number of these Dumbledores are in the Department of Justice and the intelligence community. They are mounting

Conservatives often seem to resist reading fiction, preferring fact-laden books on history, philosophy, or economics. (snip) this writer humbly submits ten books that can be read and enjoyed by a conservative looking for wisdom conveyed in a different form from nonfiction. These books can be recommended to an apolitical person who resists an overtly political screed. Or they can be part of a homeschooling curriculum for a bright high school student (though some have decidedly mature themes, as noted). The list of books is eclectic, featuring both social and economic themes and both American and European authors.

There were two big losers last night as the election returns came in from Alabama. You already know about Judge Roy Moore and the GOP Senate majority, but consider Al Franken. He now is going to be forced to live up to his promise to resign the seat, when he spoke on the Senate floor and refused to admit having done anything wrong. It was obvious then to all who have observed Franken over the years that this was a PR ploy, and that once Roy Moore was seated in the Senate after his presumed election, Franken was going to stay

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death

Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to "dirtier air" and "dirtier water." "Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary buyouts, or quit, signaling the second-highest exodus of employees from the agency in nearly a

An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package. The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company

There is strong circumstantial evidence that an insidious plot unprecedented in American history was hatched within the FBI and the Obama Justice Department to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. (Snip) Such a plot would show that partisans within the FBI and the Justice Department, driven by personal animus and a sense of political righteousness, surreptitiously conspired to subvert electoral democracy itself in our country. As of now, we have no proof beyond a reasonable doubt of such a plot. But we have very strong circumstantial evidence.

There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading

I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) suggested Thursday that Americans need to have more babies or risk a collapse of popular entitlements like Medicare and Social Security. “This is going to be the new economic challenge for America: people. Baby boomers are retiring — I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country,” Ryan, a father of three, told reporters as he riffed on how Republicans will tackle entitlement and welfare reform in 2018. “Baby boomers are retiring and we have fewer people following them in the workforce.

CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Christian Amanpour discuss reports that leaders of Syria, Myanmar Russia, and other authoritarian states have all used the term "fake news" to dismiss credible reports they disagree with. Ryan Crocker, who has served as ambassador to several middle eastern countries joins the conversation. Amanpour said that Trump´s use of the term has given dictators around the world license to paralyze the press and if it goes on, it will put democracy and the entire world order at risk. "This is really serious, and it just has to stop. Because it is undermining not just our safety, but

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to Arizona and will miss the final vote on his party’s tax bill this week, CBS News reported Sunday. McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still have the razor-thin majority needed to

For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,

Democrats hate her (#Tolerance)... Feminists despise her (#GlassCeiling)... Progressives want her silenced (#Diversity)... And the liberal media dreads her. Who is she? She’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In case you’ve been hiding under a freshly broken shard of glass from one of the ceilings being broken all over Washington D.C. lately - keep reading, it gets better. She’s the 3rd female to ever hold the office of the White House Press Secretary. - Dee Dee Myers was the first under Clinton (1993-1994) - Dana Perino was the 2nd who served under Bush in 2007 And it’s no surprise that Trump put her there because she’s perfect for the job.
