The NFL will pay a price for disrespecting the country that made them rich. Disrespecting our flag and our anthem is not the way to protest nor the place to protest! We The People are pissed at the disrespect to our military and our country! If the NFL or owners had a backbone they could stop this insanity in its tracks by just a few rules.
A former Jacksonville Jaguars fan Terry Smiley, decided to send a stunning message to the NFL form 1,000 feet above. Terry Smiley hired a pilot to fly his banner, which read “BE AMERICAN. BOYCOTT THE JAGS AND THE NFL,” over EverBank Field on Sunday before the Jaguars faced off against the Los Angeles Rams.
I have the right to protest and I’m going to protest it with bumper stickers, airplanes – whatever I got to do. I will continue to protest,” Smiley said.
As part of his campaign against the NFL, Smiley is giving away bumper stickers in hopes other supporters will join him.
What he was not expecting was what would happen just 48 hours after the bold decision that’s never been done before but was his right as a citizen of this free country.
Action News Jax reported that Smiley hired a pilot to pull a banner that encouraged fellow Jacksonvillians to boycott the team with his banner that read: “Be American. Boycott the Jags & The NFL.” This in-your-face approach didn’t sit too well with pouty kneeling players who think that they are only entitled to an opinion and publicly expressing it.
“This all-American sport is dividing fans after some NFL players took a knee during the national anthem,” Action News Jax reports. “I am asking people to boycott the football games. I don’t watch it on TV,” Smiley told the paper. Jaguars fan Jay Crossman chimed in on that sentiment saying, “People’s feelings about politics and football seem to bleed together on the turf. People need to realize the true message that they’re trying to send.”
Football players seem to think football is a necessity in people’s lives. News flash: it’s entertainment, pure and simple. Everyone can live without it. You are not researchers looking for the cure to cancer, you are not teachers guiding the next generation to greatness, you are not farmers growing our crops. You only “entertain”, you are not indispensable. Remember that!!
