NFL, YOU ARE LOSING THE GAME!

The old saying is, ”When you dig the hole too deep to climb out, stop digging”. This seems too technical for most of the NFL players. Surprisingly it also seems too confusing to a majority of the NFL franchise owners. Now the NFL Commissioner says keep kneeling today and he picked up the shovel again. So far the score is Trump and the Veterans 102, NFL 0 and the NFL is continuing to dig deeper.

These under educated millionaires could afford to pay an army of sympathizers to march on the White House, get Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to organize another “Million Man March”, or hire Bill Ayres to attack another police station to get attention. They could all gather at the Liberty Bell, UN Headquarters, the Eiffel Tower, or atop Mt. Everest but bubba’s, don’t try the Alamo. There are two Texas NFL team owners who understand when there is a time to hold’em and a time to fold’um.

I noticed today that were groupe of both players and owners meeting in New York to develop new strategies. God bless them, they are still fighting. Even most high school dropouts fully understand when you have lost the fight you crawl back home to get bandages. It does not surprise me that these iron heads expect the public to join them in a battle to emancipate the blacks again for the umpteenth time. Most mature people who read the news understand that when you have 13% of the population you get favored by asking for help rather than demanding it.

Another fact is that there are likely a couple of million brave blacks that have died saving America from oppression during far too many wars. If they could see how today’s black athletes chose a losing reason to seek notoriety they would slap them around themselves. I served with some of the finest friends I ever had in the US military. Most of those that lost a leg, an arm or their life signed a contract just like I did at 17 to give up all of my rights just to serve our flag and the National Anthem. We did not get a signing bonus the first time around or a multi-million dollar contract. Although it was 70 years ago my salary was $38 a month, three meals a day, uniforms, shoes and a cot to sleep on.

I am proud of every day I served, I stand at attention when the flag is raised, often shed a tear when the Star Spangled Banner is played and cried every time I was on burial detail for a veteran of any color. My blood is red, white and blue and watching Donald Trump actually do something to force the VA to help our veterans has been a highlight of my golden years.

Why don’t you do something positive and attend a black veterans funeral once in your rich life. Watch the family tears. See them bury a good man who signed his rights away to serve and give you the rights to free speech. Learn that the Veterans of Foreign Wars, VFW, the Disabled American Veterans, DAV and the American Legion are dedicated to helping veterans and your donations will actually help the black ones too.

I feel fortunate that I was never in battle during my time during the Korean war. I lost some classmates and friends I shall never forget. They did not ask to die, want to die or plan to die but they did and it humbles me every day of my 87 years. I wear my red shirts thay Fuzz Palmer reminds me to wear every Friday, honoring all veterans. I have a favorite one that says,” I am not a hero, but I walked beside a few”.

You were all Americans at one time in your sorry life and equality will never happen until “YOU” help unite our country instead of dividing it wider. Be leaders instead of dividers and take your inner wars to another stage where the Flag and National Anthem may not scared. The NFL will never have me watch you play again as the owners allowed you to dishonor the flag and the Star Spangled Banner. Any other real American will join me in scrapping all professional sports if they continue to spit in the face of every veteran who served in the US Military with honor.

Lay down your shovels, wave the flag, stand during the National Anthem or hope you can make a living protesting  somewhere else. You started this battle and deserve to lose the war. You are truly an ungrateful bunch of morons to disrespect our flag and anthem. You have pissed off the President so hang onto your seat belt, your future rides will be scary.

I HAVE WATCHED MY LAST NFL GAME!

Something to think about while we watch a bunch of Millionaires Play. This disrespect by the NFL is not acceptable. If these unhappy Americans wish to demonstrate, do it on their own time. Goodell should be fired.  CB

Commissioner Goodell,

I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium. I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt. Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.

Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins. 

Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were! You are complicit in this!

You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?

I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring.  I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone? 

 Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not.

Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles. They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many don’t have legs or arms. 

Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety.   On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.  

 I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!

Time to change the channel.

PS Patriots – A phone call was placed to Col Jeffery Powers.  He’s for real and resides in Vista, CA. He was commended for writing this admirable and thought provoking letter.

This old veteran is happy to share this, will you?
