NFL Team Announces They Will Go Beyond Fines When Penalizing Players Who Kneel For Anthem

They’re not gonna like this!!

Published

on

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.

Major Network Announces They’re Refusing To Air Anthem Before NFL Games – BAD Idea

Fans want to be entertained with a great game but don’t want to be subjected to politics

With football season fast approaching the eternal debate over whether or not it is acceptable to sit or kneel during the national anthem is alive and well again. President Trump, sports commentators, athletes and coaches alike are chiming in and giving their two cents. Now, a major network announced that they are refusing to air the anthem altogether right before any and all National Football League games. Perhaps a very bad idea because the unintended consequence will be record low ratings. Those decisions and choices never end well.

100 Percent Fed Up reported,

“As if we need another reason NOT to watch NFL football, ESPN just gave us another one. ESPN just announced that they will not show the national anthem during “Monday Night Football” broadcasts this year, the company’s president said on Friday. Jimmy Pitaro addressed the controversy at ESPN’s annual football media day: “We generally have not broadcasted the anthem and I don’t think that will change this year,” he said. “Our plan going into this year is to not broadcast the anthem … again that could change. It’s unpredictable what could happen in the world but as of now, we’re not. We have communicated that back to the NFL.” ESPN had already been going the way of the mainstream media with their support of the left’s agenda so this is not a huge surprise. When Jemele Hill trashed President Trump over and over but ESPN finally gave her a slap on the wrist, you knew it was a full-on entity of the leftist media and no longer just a sports news network.

Go figure, The NFL and ESPN continue to shoot themselves in the foot by being so outspoken on politics. Fans want to be entertained with a great game but don’t want to be subjected to politics and anti-Americanism. What doesn’t the management get about what the fans want? Are they that out of touch or are they afraid of their players? Ratings have tanked and will tank even further this year after there has been no change in the pre-game anthem behavior of the spoiled brat multi-millionaire football players.

And so it goes…football fans across America will enjoy spending more time doing other things on the days they used to watch or attend a game. All we have to say to the NFL (Rodger Goodell we’re talking to you) is good luck paying those players the big bucks when you have empty stadiums and no viewers… Football legend Lou Holtz recently weighed in on the anthem controversy: Legendary football coach Lou Holtz just dropped a ton of common sense on the NFL’s national anthem debate after President Trump tweeted about it to say the NFL players should be punished for kneeling: Lou Holtz: “I have never attended a football game that did not have the national anthem before the game, it’s part of the sport.”

Pete Hegseth called out the NFL Commissioner on “caving” to the players by putting a hold on the new anthem policy that requires players on the field to stand for the anthem. He’s spot on! OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE ANTHEM POLICY: The NFL players continue to dig their own grave to sink what was once a wildly popular sport that made millions for players. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! Did team owners finally get the message from American football fans? The team is claiming that, “all options are still open”. Breaking news tells us that in a report from the “proper anthem conduct,” the Miami Dolphins players could be suspended for protesting the national anthem even though the team says all options are open… Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem reportedly could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.

ESPN reports: 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 long list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine, or both. Though Titans coach Mike Vrabel said in May that the organization and team owner support players’ decisions in regards to conducting protests during the national anthem, the team wants to talk to Jurrell Casey about his plans to protest social injustice.

In a statement, the Dolphins confirmed they sent the NFL the document, without offering specifics on what plans it laid out. “The NFL required each team to submit their rules regarding the anthem before their players reported to training camp,” the team said. “We will address this issue once the season starts. All options are still open.””

Anthem kneeling has remained a controversial issue for some time. It all began in August of 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to start the protest. He and others argued it was protesting systematic oppression, inequality, and social injustice against African Americans in the United States. While some have supported the protests calling them politically urgent and patriotic, others have not. Those who disagree with them have called them disrespectful and unpatriotic to the military, police, and the American flag.

Other athletes from different sports have joined in from professions such as soccer, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, college, and high school. While political figures have weighed in as well. President Obama said that those kneeling were exercising their constitutional right and that he believed in their sincerity. While Supreme Court Justice Ruther Bader Ginsburg called it dumb and disrespectful. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee knelt on the floor of the House of Representatives and her colleague Representative Mark Pocan did the same exact thing the next day. Vice President Mike Pence left a game for the Indianapolis Colts after San Francisco 49ers players kneeled during the anthem.

Early this year in May the NFL commissioner, as well as the team owners, approved a new guideline and policy that requires all players in the NFL to stand during the anthem. If they choose not to then they have to remain in the locker room for the entire time and only come out for the performance. Now, it has been taken a step further and a network will not air when the national anthem is being played.

Loudmouth LaVar Ball Makes Nasty Announcement About Trump And His Supporters – BAD Move!

Apparently he forgot!

Published

President Trump is known to have detractors and those who wish him ill. It has almost become a competitive sport within the mainstream media as well as the athletic and entertainment industry. Which is why the comments of LaVar Ball, a former pro-National Football League, and National Basketball League player should not shock you one bit. But it should surely disgust you. Even if there are those who do not like the president, the least they can do is provide him basic respect and decency. However, all of that is missing in Ball’s recent comments.

Total Pro Sports reported,

“If there’s one person who knows all about the controversy surrounding the President, it’s LaVar Ball. The CEO of Big Baller Brand had an infamous run-in with the current President of the United States when his middle son got himself arrested for stealing in China. There just might be another run-in brewing. A few days ago, Trump tweeted that Don Lemon was the “Dumbest man on television” that made LeBron James look smart, which “was hard to do.” That brought about so much criticism in the days following, especially after the Los Angeles Lakers superstar had opened his new I Promise school. In a recent interview with TMZ, Ball outlined what some of the reasons were when asked whether Trump is racist.

“Do I think he’s racist? Yes, he’s racist. Everybody know that. Everybody knows that. That’s not a secret. It’s not a secret. If you’re bothering a lot of black folks, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you’re bothering a lot Hispanics, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you messing with everybody but whoever is not your kind, whoever is your kind you’re not messing with, I call you racist if you like that. That’s easy to spot out.”

Ball, a former athlete, is now a media personality and businessman with three sons who all play professional basketball. One for the Los Angeles Lakers, one who played on scholarship at UCLA, and one for the Los Angeles Ballers. He serves as the Chief Executive Officer of his sports apparel company known as Big Baller Brand while he simultaneously founded the Junior Basketball Association (JBA).

However, in the past few years Ball has made media headlines all over the world for his controversial and outrageous statements. He claimed that one of his son’s Lonzo is better than world-renowned basketball player Stephen Curry. At the same time, he also alleged that he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one basketball game. Since then he has received praise and criticism, and his remarks have led to television appearances which have received major attention from high profile sports media outlets.

But it was his problems with President Trump that has been getting him into hot water. Ball’s son was one of the UCLA students who was detained for shoplifting in a high-end shopping center in Shanghai, China. The players were accused by police of shoplifting high-end Louis Vuitton sunglasses at a store in the mall. After President Trump and his administration made a plea to the Chinese government to release them from their charges they were set free.

President Trump took to social media to say that the students were headed to jail and if it were not for his intervention they would still be there. Furthermore, that despite what he did for them he did not think they would say thank you. Ball tweeted back a response which insinuated that President Trump did nothing to help Ball’s son and teammates get out of Chinese prison. When Ball appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo shortly thereafter he still refused to thank the president.

President Trump responded by calling Ball a poor man’s version of Don King and calling him an ungrateful fool. A short while later, Ball’s son and his teammates were suspended indefinitely even after their public thank you where they expressed gratitude to the president. Ball continued to double down, refusing to thank him even after some time had passed.

It is very clear that Ball is highly ungrateful. President Trump hit it right on the head, there is no doubt about it. Much like other Hollywood entertainers, politicians, and detractors who trash the president Ball’s bad move will likely lead to him getting the Trump curse. One where public figures trash the president and as a result lose their career, lose notoriety and all around lose the entire situation. Ball needs a training in manners and perhaps his fall from grace will be the life lesson he so desperately needs.
