Never in my lifetime did I ever think that I would come to the point of disliking a sport that I grew up playing like I have with the National Football League.
Today, by the way, Super Bowl LII is being played, but I frankly could not care less.
For years the NFL has been on the wane with me, starting with the whole sissified way the game is played coupled with the carefully choreographed play that makes sure that endless commercials are pushed in the faces of viewers.
Most recently, though, NFL owners and the commissioner cowered to the disrespectful nonsense of Colin Kaepernick and all the rogue players who decided to basically spit on the American flag during the playing of the National Anthem.
Of course, part of the cowardice has to do with falsely assuming that the football field is the appropriate place to air a person’s petty grievance under the guise of “free speech.”
What they all fail to realize is that by taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, no one is saying anything.
In fact, I would contend that most of the idiots demonstrating on the field could not put together a coherent sentence stating explicitly why they are doing what they are doing.
They are merely sheep being led to the slaughter by a washed-up reprobate who is also being led to the slaughter by a Muslim activist, because he is too stupid to know otherwise.
Therefore, the only way to cut the head off the snake is to simply quit paying it any attention and then watch the corporate world slowly cease forking over billions of dollars to fund it.
Thus far, I am not the only one bidding the NFL adieu, as NFL ratings are down a whooping 10% from last year and it is only destined to continue its decline, so long as anti-American subversives like Kaepernick, Sarsour, and Diab are allowed to drive the NFL into its grave.
So, goodbye National Football League.
I will long remember the days when I watched my first Super Bowl, number VI, when the players were men both on and off the field, rather than a bunch of narcissistic sissies who believe it is their place to make political statements on the football field by first disrespecting the symbol that grants them the freedom to be entertainers in the first place.
