  1. after watching last nights game, i am going to boycott the nfl.
    i can't beleive the calls. the outcome of that game was decided by the "refs", and not the play on the field. i know my one voice means nothing to the corperation that is the NFL, but if enough of us do the same, your rating will fall to an all time low, just like the NFL has this year.

    1. I'm going to boycott them because they can't a hold of their players allowing them to protest at their place of employment. Shame on you NFL, get your employees to respect our flag or Americans will not support you.

    2. I could not agree more. .they all get paid from a free nation they live in .how about respecting it..if they must sit. .Leave them in the locker room until the opening is over..what a shame they don't respect the u.s.a. maybe they should leave...

    4. To Whom it may concern: Just watched a couple of good games today but don't really have the desire to watch anymore.On this day 15 years ago our country was attacked by terrorists and as you know thousands of people lost their lives, So here we are honoring those people and the NFL has players disrespecting those people because they take it upon themselves to demonstrate some other cause other then those who lost their lives 15 years ago today. I can't believe the NFL allowed that to happen. I can't believe I saw a player raising his fist in the the air, yeah he was black, the NFL permits it, does the NFL promote it?

    5. Very disappointing last few weeks for the NFL, I am done watxhing. There is a very simple solution. No employees of the NFL are allowed to engage in politics on company time, no politics in the workplace, do it on your own time. This is a reasonable solution for everyone

    6. I will not watch another nfl game with the 49ers until kapernick is gone, he has the right to protest, 49ers have a right to cut him, we have the right to change the station, which I did.

    7. I have been a 49ers fan ever since I can remember, and I am a Veteran, and very proud of our county. I am so discussed with Colin Kaepernick’s lack of respect for the National Anthem, and the lack of the team’s management involvement to correct this situation. To go further, NFL has decreased its self by not stepping up to the 49ers management team.

      It is a shame a professional in the NFL has so little respect for the very thing that allows him to express his options. What does this show our young impressionable minds (children), they should be taught respect and honor for our country.

      I let this go the first time Kaepernick did this hoping someone with the team would talk to him. Apparently, it’s OK with the 49ers to disrespect our country, so long as the almighty dollar keeps rolling in. I will NO LONGER support the 49ers in anyway. I have unsubscribed to your email list as well as the NFL’s. I will no longer purchase ANY NFL team products or go to see a game! And if it continues, I will also express this to all of your sponsors. Maybe, just maybe when it hits your bottom line someone with the team will stick-up for this country.

    8. As a Veteran, and a retired Firefighter I am offended by the actions of these few overpaid cry baby's, I am appalled that the NFL allows these political statements to continue. They would not allow the Police officers who lost their lives in Texas to be honored, They impose fines on players who wear shoes commemorating those who gave their lives protecting others due to the horrible events on September 11, 2001. These are the real hero's, who day in and day out make a difference in the lives of people that they have never met. The Military continues to protect this Great Nation, that is symbolized by the American Flag, which is honored by the National Anthem. I agree that they have a right to free speech, but please do it in a less disrespectful way. A raised fist symbolizes another political agenda. The Seahawks did it the proper way without disrespecting our country, our military, and our public servants.
      The next time you feel the need to make a political statement please remember this; the NFL is nothing more than entertainment. I too have the right to free speech but I also have a right to choice. I have been a football fan for over 50 years but, after seeing the raised fist protest last night I changed the channel and did not watch the game. I may be in the minority but if enough fans "change the channel" you will all be looking for a different way to make a living. Maybe then, you too can make a REAL Difference in someone's life.

    10. I am not watching NFL because of Kaepernick's actions, this has filtered down to high school, even pee wee football. I even have Direct TV NFL package fro FREE and will not watch any of it. Keep personal religion and political issues out of Sports.

    11. I am not a Bills or Seahawk fan but what I witnessed last night was horrible. If it was my favorite team I would be really upset. Sorry for what happened to you Buffalo fans but what you saw is why Seattle wins so much at home. They pay off the refs.

  2. Dear nfl the refs in the Monday night game for the packers vs Seahawks did such a horrible job I don't think I can ever watch football again. I am a Tampa bay fan and I'm so disgusted by what these"refs" have done to totally disgraced the game!! I'm not sure how you can sign a check for these people because you have lost several fans just in my household. I hope that one day you can bring football back but until them I will no longer watch this sport. Sincerely a disgusted disappointed enraged ex fan.

  3. I agree all the calls suck if a person punched a player the player that got hit would get tbe flag sunday was to much i thought until i watched the monday night game these refs need to go and the regular refs need to come back even when they do they wil need sometime to adjust to the game so it looks like we will not get a good called game all season

    ReplyDelete
  4. All four games I watched from Sunday morning to Monday night were adversely affected by the scab referees. Most noteworthy: Harbaugh being allowed to challenge a ruling on the field in Minnesota after he had used his last time out, resulting in San Francisco getting the ball; the no-call on the vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on Darrius Heyward Bey in the Oakland endzone; and last but not least, the preposterous series of calls to end the game last in Seattle. And I'm a Seattle fan! The scabs gotta go. Bring back the pros!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Absolutely horrendous game. The Packers were robbed of a win. These refs have got to go. Roger Goddell you have lost control and have tarnished the NFL. What disgrace to the fans and the league. You need to come to an agreement with the "real" refs or you may be out of a job sooner that you want. Another game decided by replacement refs who couldn't agree on the call when it happened. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

  6. My letter to the NFL today:

    09/25/2012

    NFL Corporate Office Headquarters
    National Football League
    280 Park Ave., 15th Fl.
    New York, NY 10017 USA
    Attn: Commissioner Goodell,
    I am fully aware you will not read this letter but hopefully someone at your office will and convey my sentiments that are in harmony with millions of other fans after last night’s embarrassing episode by your little league referees.
    I am a season ticket holder of the Minnesota Vikings but I am also a fan of the Packers. On Sunday I was at the 49rs / Vikings game and the officiating was weak to say the least. Being more of a Packer fan I felt somewhat safe, thinking this anomaly will finally take hold and the zebras will start to figure out the game. Needless to say, that is not the case. It is as obvious as the nose on your face what transpired on that last play with the Seahawks; a blatant offensive foul (pushing the defender in the back) and then the indecisive call by either official claiming the Seahawks scored the touchdown. For God’s sake, neither official was within 10 yards of the catch when they began their flurry of signals; indicating change of possession and/or a touchdown.
    This is only the second letter I have ever mailed to anyone in the NFL. The pride I have in the game and the overall management (your office) of the league is diminishing my respect for the profession. At the end of the day, the NFL is essentially entertainment, but do we want it to be synonymous with the World Wrestling Federation? Are you the next Vince McMahon?
    For the sake of your customers (me and millions of others who attend and support the game), not to mention all of the players, GET THE PROFESSIONAL REFEREES BACK ON THE FIELD.!!! If you need a donation because the billionaire owners won’t budge, I think the fans of the Packers, Saints, 49ers, Ravens and Patriots will gladly chip in a few bucks to get this settled.

  7. Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 5 states:

    Simultaneous Catch. If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control. If the ball is muffed after simultaneous touching by two such players, all the players of the passing team become eligible to catch the loose ball.

    ReplyDelete

    1. The problem is ... it was NOT a simultaneous catch! It was clearly an interception by the defender who was downed in the end zone with possession BEFORE any "simultaneous" possession occurred!

  8. What is with big Joe Flacco banners placed in Denver by the NFL? That is just dumb! Like everyone in Denver is not going to watch the game anyway. Plus, I bet Facco doesn't want to be more of a Target!

  9. So disappointed with response to Ray Rice's punishment. He should be suspended for a year. What does this say about the nfl .'s attitude toward women? That we have no value! No excuse for putting hands on a woman. He looked like a caveman. I thought this was 2014, guess I'm wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  10. As a football fan who is also a woman, I am deeply disappointed to say the least, with the slap on the wrist Ray Rice has received for his appalling public abuse of his wife/former girlfriend. Are women second class citizens in this country?
    In contrast, former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress got a four-game suspension for illegally carrying a firearm, and that was prior to his trial.
    Don Jones received a suspension of indefinite length for his insensitive tweets (in response to Michael Sam being drafted by St. Louis), until Jones recanted and submitted to behavioral modification and paying an undisclosed fine.

    Is this evidence of the values of the NFL? Carrying a gun illegally or dissing a gay man are weightier offenses than knocking a woman out cold in public.

    Shame on you all.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Seriously?! Rice gets a two game suspension for clocking his female partner, a woman less than half his size? I guess the message to the world is the NFL in general and Baltimore in particular don't give a crap about women. Thanks, guys, you've made me a soccer fan.

  12. I will never personally never watch another NFL game; ever. Furthermore, my entire family will not be allowed to watch any games ever again in this home. (This likely means nothing to you, but I do at least intend to make this stance VERY known and why.
    That a "PROFESSIONAL" athlete can be "re-hired" after beating up on small children or spouses is SICK. No actual rehabilitation of their behavior required -- just that they "did their time" and a slap on the wrist, then back to business as usual.
    This sends a very clear message to high school kids (and younger) who play football that you can get into pro-football and stay there regardless of your behavior or lifestyle. Hey, you can be a complete thug and/or druggie and still make millions of dollars and be on the next Wheaties box cover. Whoo-hoo!

  16. You should suspend Ndamukong Suh for intentionally stepping on Arron Rodgers leg. You need to set an example by also fining him this kind of dirty playing should not be allowed especially when he has played dirty before.

  17. Seems that the NFL is getting in the habit of supporting thugs. I'm finished watching after 50+ years.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You change Ndamukong Suh suspension to a fine? You know he's guilty,other players on his team are guilty of the same offense,yet you change your mind. You suspend a head coach and other coaches for paying a reward for hard hits on other players yet you let this thug continue play. I'm truly not sure how to take this or how to explain it to my grandson who is a football fan. I very disappointed with this decision.

    ReplyDelete
  19. If you believe Suh's excuse that his feet were numb - your brain is numb. It's really all about the money not the integrity of the game. What a pathetic group of over paid under talented players, owners and leadership.

  20. Suh should be suspended from football,the Detroit team is a dirty bunch and a poor example to professional football. This goes back to the days of Phil Lambeer with the Pistons. How he won the appeal shows real poor judgement on the leagues part. This message sent down from the league will hurt football

  21. After watching football all year , ive found the players have no heart anymore for the game. its about the money. if you big shots would cut there pay to half if they lose a game , we might see football agian . pay them all if they win . but they know win or lose they get paid , so they have gotten soft wont run for ball dive for ball or make any iffert to win the game

  22. RE: Give back the game to the fans
    The number of commercials per hour 'seem' to be greater than game minutes played. In reality, they are not. Money derived from advertising wins out. That said, the games are difficult to watch as the interruptions by commercials are so frequent. At 65 I have been watching for a long time... now I find myself switching channels. In short, your are losing this viewer.

  23. NFL has no shame. Pulling flag for obvious pass interference in Detroit vs Dallas game. Simply to boost your TV income because more people will watch Dallas than Detroit in the next play off game this shows how corrupt you really are.

    ReplyDelete
  24. NFL please answer this question. OK you picked up a flag on an obvious interference call. That wasn't right but nothing you can do about it now except apologize and expect a public apology. But on that play at the end you see Dez Bryant out on the field with out a helmet on arguing that call. What was there no flag for that. That is two things that Dallas did on that one play and neither got penalized. It is obvious that you wanted Dallas to win, the head of Officiating in the Dallas booth and on a Dallas party bus earlier in the week. That guy should be fired. The NFL has a lot of embarrassing things going on and the blatant disrespect for the game by you and your refs is a good place to start. Clean house and apologize. Would be great start. The Lions would have been in scoring position and at least had a shot at a field goal. But the refs made sure that wasn't going to happen. Your league officials are a disgrace. Suh got fined for stepping on a player. So should the refs or even fired for fixing a game. Disgruntled fan, of the Detroit Lions and no longer a fan of the Corrupt NFL league office and there so called refs.

They cheated and by cheating they should lose the super bowl and the colts should go.They deflated balls after the inspection that's just wrong.

  27. I just read the article where several NFL teams took cash from the Department of Defense to honor the active duty military and Veterans. They got paid to make it look like they were supporting our military and Veterans. How lo can you go Mr. Goodell with your disgusting actions. The NFL is the most under handed dishonest and absolutely un-American group that I have ever had the dishonor of ever knowing and for so many years enjoyed watching football games and the greats of the game play. As a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps for nearly 7 years and a Vietnam Veteran I am so disgusted at the NFL and the teams involved in taking cash to honor our active duty military and our Veterans. I do not think the NFL, these teams and Mr. Goodell can sink any lower in any way than they have with the breaking of this story where they proved they do not honor our military or our Veterans unless they are paid to do so.

    1. I can not believe that the Dept of Defense should have to pay the NFL. This is so degrading and the NFL, players and teams should be ashamed of themselves. I believe Roger Goodall should pay back the Dept of Defense all that money because it belongs to tax payers. We pay enough for game tickets that we do not need to pay for this. I thought the NFL was a non-profit?

      Delete
  28. Commissioner Goodall: Why were the Patriots fined $1 million and the Ravens nothing. The Ravens knew about the Ray Rice video tape and withheld that information concerning a felony. Why didn't you investigate the Colts because they could have deflated the football on their sideline to give the NFL League Office evidence. This is so crazy. You know yourself as an attorney (maybe that is why you can pull illegal things against players and teams) that there was not enough evidence to charge Brady or the Patriots. You should kiss your job good bye because when the lawsuits are filed, you will not have a job and there probably won't be an NFL. Maybe someone should look into your background and the off shore accounts that the NFL has.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The NFL continues to hit new lows with the recent Brady ruling, charges to the Dept. of Defense, the handling of violence against woman & children, and the way they treat their players as a disposable resource. Unfortunately the only way to communicate with the NFL is with their pocketbooks. I would love to see a petition to have fans who are disenchanted with the leadership of the NFL signup to cancel their subscription to the NFL network for starters!!! This is the only way to get the attention of the owners who are in position to exact change in the direction of the league. Hit them in the pocketbook is the only thing they understand. I would be the first to signup but have to admit I will sorely miss Amber!!! Thankfully, the NFL has taught me that everyone is replaceable.
    P.S. I know the Wife will be happier with the cheaper cable bill!!!!

  30. Like how the NFL & good old Roger decided to make the Patriots & Tom Brady take it up the _ _ _!!! Over balls supposivly under inflated, balls the refs themselves touched/caught has they set them on scrimmage line, hmmm wonder why they didn't notice balls felt different!!! And it seems everybody forgets an under inflated ball doesn't travel has far as a ball that is inflated or say over inflated which Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers admitted his balls are.... They fit his hand better, during an aired T.V. interview prior to Pats/Colts game deflate gate contriversy!!
    Why no suspension/fine etc be presented to Aaron Rodgers & the Packers org.. To me an over inflated ball is definately cheating it will travel further distance when thrown ( look at Rodgers yrds per pass since he became GB's QB) an over inflated ball travels farther when kicked punt/FG/
    kick offf!!! But nobody seems to care about Aaron rodgers over inflated balls they preffer to tarnish one of the greatest QB's this game has seen, a QB who prooved in Super Bowl game against Sea Hawks it doesn't matter what the football psi is he can throw the football period the end!!

  31. I really don't understand what has happened in the NFL. Commissioner Goodall and his staff have made bad decisions for quite some time and are not held accountable to any common sense standards.
    It seems that all decisions are being made mostly for his own personal gain and not for the good of the game. It is sad to see this happening to the game I love.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Commissioner Goodall: Great job, I don't feel this is about the action but the integrity of the spirit. You don't stand in front of police when they are trying to solve a case. Especially when you do not have anything to hide, and Tom Brady was not their to help the shield. I would suggest one more thing to find out where Tom Brady's stands. Why don't you place him on the Commissioner list so he will still get paid but can't play any games until the case is over. Just a thought.

  38. Hi
    Don't know where else to put this so here goes.

    My name is Stan Hemming and live in Halifax, NS, Canada. I watched Super Bowl 3 back when cable got started never missed a Sunday since. We have an issue in some parts of Canada that I believe you should be aware of and may not be.
    As the most iconic and valued sports brand in the world are you folks at corporate aware That TSN(the sports network, in Canada/cable) does not always televise your game on Monday night. There were 2 games not shown at all. This season week 2 is being pre-empted by preseason hockey. I would have thought you'd have stipulations in your contract regaurding carriers of your product having to show the game such as the "iconic" Monday Night Football brand.
    This is likely only happening in Atlantic Canada. The east coast of the country. TSN has multiple channels and can run hockey on 1 and football on the other but do not, nor offer the NFL even on tape delay.
    If your product isn't being shown/promoted perhaps you should look at replacing the service provider. I'm going to start contacting all companies that advertise and thus support your business in Canada if this cannot get resolved favourably for the fans of the games a next step.
    I should point out that TSN is associated with CTV a carrier of Sunday football as is TSN. take away both there licenses they might listen then.

    I hope and pray the IRS/FBI catches YOU in your scam with Fan Duel Fantasy Football. I've notified the FBI to keep a close watch on your personal Checking/Saving account. By blatantly lying and saying that Fan Duel is NOT gambling. You are on the fringes of Schizophrenia. Mr. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, You are going to get caught in this corrupt gambling scam with Fan Duel by receiving kick backs underneath the table for saying that Fan Duel Fantasy Football is not gambling. It is 100% gambling and YOU will be ever so sorry for lying and making the NFL look like a LIVE Casio

    I urge you to discontinue the Fan Duel and Fantasy King commercials that sucker men & women into gambling. Gambling is utterly vile and addictive and has NO place in the NFL!

  41. I agree with most of the above comments. The game has been completely perverted by the new rules. I suggest that after the initial coin toss, they perform a second coin toss where the game winner is decided; that way the officials will have complete control over who wins. The officials are not really to blame, they try their best but the new rules are so minutia fill and subject to interpretation that God himself would find it hard to officiate an NFL game. I realize this is no longer sport but entertainment and the owners want their money and they want to protect their investment, well like the stock market and almost every other endeavor there are risks - everyone except the fans is getting huge money and we are the ones paying for it. On the positive side the new extra point methodology is great.

    Jersey must cover all pads and other protective equipment worn on the torso and upper arms, and must be appropriately tailored to remain tucked into the uniform pants throughout the game.

  47. The NFL preaches safety, but a clear and diliberate use of the helmet by a linebacker on a running back doesn't draw fine from the NFL. Its a joke, I understand the fines and suspension of Burfict, I do, though i think it should of only been for one game, he deserved a suspension, but Ryan Shazier hit should of received a fine as well. Well, I won't waste anymore money on the NFL. They preach safety, but apparently only when they choose, not always. Its a joke and your league is pathetic.

  51. Could we not just have a football game and musical entertainment at halftime? Is there no place that we can escape from national political statements?

    "And the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime show is brought to you by the Black Panthers and Gay Pride!" Isn't that just great? Next year could we please have the a halftime show sponsored by the NRA and Christians Across America? Oh wait, two years ago the NFL blocked the NRA from even buying a commercial slot. So, evidently only political statements of a particular ilk will be promoted by the NFL.

    Mr. Goddell could we please just have a football game and entertainment that is welcoming to all football fans?

  52. Its very upsetting that the NFL allowed Beyonce to disrespect Law Enforcement Officers in the United States and World Wide. Also having Beyoncé to honor Black Panthers who are convicted felonies and have shot at police officers and killed many victims. The NFL owns Law Enforcement a big time apology Like Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani also weighed in, slamming Beyonce for her performance, "I think it was outrageous," Giuliani said on Fox News. “I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive

  53. What in the fucking hell is going on with the NFL administration allowing this shit to happen. You literally allowed and knowing signed off on promoting cop killing. You bunch of uneducated idiots really need to look very hard at what is going on here. American sports fans are sick and tired of these niggs being allowed to destroy everything in the country now they fuck up what should have been the biggest and best super bowl ever but instead you uneducated idiots that promote the half time show really fucked up. 114 million viewers during the super bowl and your percentage dropped from last year. This is just one reason to fire the ones involved in this shit. Secondly you need to stop allowing niggs on the half time shows that's racist through and through. So thanks for fucking up a once in a lifetime event and you idiots should have to refund people that paid to see the game and what should have been the besthalf time show in history bit instead you assholes choose to put a bunch of racist niggs on Americas stage to promote racism and the killing of police officers great job fuck heads.

  54. I cannot believe Beyonce's halftime performance at this year's Super Bowl (2016) was approved and allowed to happen! I hope her decision hurts her career and that she will never perform at any future NFL functions!

  55. Hello,

    Over the last twenty five years or so ALL fundamentals have ceased to exist in the NFL. The players are all trying to make ESPN's highlight real instead of playing professional football (I thought these players were professionals?). Why are the players allowed to act like they just cured cancer after every simple play they make? Pro football is becoming as phony as pro wrestling.

    One last comment, why are you as Commissioner allowing all these literate ex-ball players ramble on and on (most of the time their so called expertise is wrong, biased and they act like a bunch of clowns).

  56. After that ridiculous Beyonce halftime show, I'm extremely saddened to inform you that I will not be watching my beloved Vikings play not one single game next year. Instead, I will be boycotting every game and all NFL merchandise. I know a lot of people feel the same way, that politics and racial propaganda have pretty much just ruined the game... By the NFL condoning the black panther super bowl bowl show and the bs "hands up don't shoot" crap throughout the year, I hope the NFL essentially goes bankrupt and humbles all you high horse riding folks...

  57. After this halftime show i found out the Superbowl is in Houston. Some believe that Beyonce will be back next year because it's her home town. I have a argument against allowing her back next year. First her halftime show was ridiculous their was no need for her to be allow to do that. Second is their is someone more deserving then Beyoncé to preform at the halftime show. He himself is a Houston Native. He is known as the King of Country Music. His name is George Strait or what us Texans call King George Strait. George Strait has 60 number one hits. He also holds the attendance record at NRG(Reliant) Stadium with 80,020 people. George has also never preform at the Superbowl. I think the NFL really needs to give him the opportunity to preform the Halftime show. #GeorgeStrait4Superbowl51

  58. I would like to know what the people in charge of the NFL tell their kids or grandchildren about cheating because the patriots cheated in the biggest game of that year and there is no question they cheated and what happens when you cheat in the NFL you get to keep your trophy and your ring and your bonus and you don't even have to sit a suspension you get to start the next seasons first game if a NCAA team got caught doing that the entire program would be banned from competition your ads on TV always talk of setting a good example and being role models for the youth of today so why is nothing being taken from that franchise which has been caught cheating before and with no consequences at the top level your teaching every kid in sports that its no big deal as long as you win because a qb that has always throws a under inflated ball will be able to whip it compared to a qb that hasn't thrown a flat ball at every practice the week before the game and has to figure it out when the game has started way to set the bar

  60. The NFL has no business stating political opinions on any state legislation. We have federal laws that protect against any state laws being discriminatory. Let the courts handle it.

  61. Dear NFL Corporate Office, I think you are out of touch with your fan base and are catering to a select and minority view point. The NFL has grown in stature over the years due to the unique entertainment product you provide. Now you are attempting to control state governments with threats of withholding events to achieve an outcome that has NOTHING to do with your product. This error of judgement would never would have been made by the founders of the league. I for one, do not plan to attend a game in person and will find other activities to occupy my time.

  63. I disagree with the League offices not allowing the Dallas Cowboys to wear an emblem honoring the Dallas Police Dept. I am a NY Giants fan and have disdain for the Cowboys, but stand with them honoring the fallen at DPD . After 9/11, MLB allowed the Yankees and Mets to wear FDNYPD hats on the field for the remainder of the season that year, The NFL should allow the Cowboys to wear the patch, it is not an advertisement at all, it just honors Americans that died in the service of their community.

  68. As a US Marine Corps Combat War Veteran, I am absolutely insulted, offended, and furious at the San Francisco 49ers QB, "Colin Kaepernick" for refusing to stand up during the playing of our National Anthem. I don't care what that idiot was trying to protest. By him doing that, it is a slap in the face across every American who has ever worn the uniform of the US Military!! It's because of our Military and Veterans who choose to fight for our Country that gives jerks like Colin Kaepernick the right to have freedom to play in the NFL. There is no excuse for what he has done. He deserves to be kicked off the team and out of the NFL completely. Yes, it's just a game. But, the freedom of our Country and National Security is no game. If he can't stand up during the National Anthem and show respect for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice or served, then he has no right to be in the USA to begin with. You hate this country that much? Then get out!!

  71. I sent this to the 49er’s Corporate /Front Office and know that nothing will come of it so I am sending to you as well in hopes that some respect is restored in the game of Football.

    First, Football Players should only be playing football and not be thinking that they’re politicians or pretend “role models.” If they wish to be respected than behavior off the field should be under wraps and not just “oh, look at me while I’m at an orphanage helping them eat today while I get my picture taken …. Most (not all) are only thugs and don’t deserve to be paid unless they actually have respect for society and learn some manners first. Being disrespectful to our American Flag is the Utmost (!) Worst Thing anyone could possibly do and you as a Commissioner should not allow this Despicable Person who lives on American Soil and receiving a lot of American Dollars to continue to play an American Game of Football in our country. If nothing happens, I don’t want to continue going to games, spending tons of money on game jerseys, buying $12 beers, and paying for overpriced club level seats and parking. I have rather have my Mortgage Paid off and put $$ in in my retirement account which I should be doing vs. paying for this thug to continue his career !!

    Sent to San Francisco:
    The 49er's Front Office / Corporate should not only fire but severely punish and hopefully be embarrassed beyond words by the actions of this Punk who has disrespected the American Flag which represents all who have Fought and Sacrificed to have the Freedoms we thus have in the United States. How dare he think that he is anything other than an overpaid Quarterback who should be paid only Commission like Commissioned Salespeople = when perform well, get paid well and not receive inflated salaries b/c they prance down the fields ....do not let him play and hopefully, the front office has Policy, Procedures and Ethics Guidelines in place like other Corporations do if the Contract is not fulfilled than there are repercussions ... but allowing him to "sit" without be sanctioned and/or punished by the Team and Front Office is abominable. Your Fans will not be your Fans ((talk about protesting)) and there will be backlash by True Americans. If you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to call and/or email me. Do not come EAST to Annapolis, MD where we love our American FLAG and service men and women.

    Thank you.

  74. Dear Commissioner
    Having been a loyal NFL fan for years, I felt compelled to write. I watched as Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem, I felt offended, personally I think he was just trying to get attention for a career that is over, Maybe SF won't cut him now as they will try to be politically correct. Still this is not what really upsets me.
    THE FACT THAT THE NFL TURNED DOWN THE COWBOYS FROM WEARING A STICKER ON THEIR HELMET TO COMMEMORATE THE POLICE OFFICERS GUNNED DOWN IN DALLAS WAS THE LAST STRAW FOR ME.
    I am a Fl resident and have been lucky enough to go to the BUCS & FINS games a few times a year, as I have for years, today I tossed all my NFL gear in the trash, I cannot & will not support an organization that has utter disrespect for our country & the men and women who defend it, I hope you reconsider allowing the Dallas Cowboys to wear the sticker. Today I am no longer a football fan as some issues are bigger than the game I loved & this sir is one of them.

  75. Dear NFL,
    May I suggest since your views are SO anti-American that you remove the red, white and blue colors as well as remove the stars from the NFL logo. Your colors should be red and black with a pitchfork going through the crest for your devilish views. What personifies this league is support for immoral life styles, felons, thugs, and violence against police. Its a disgrace that you recently denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys for players to wear a sticker on their helmets to show support for five Dallas police officers killed last month...yet you do absolutely nothing to Kaepernick for his utter disrespect for this country or to Beyonce for her disgraceful anti law enforcement thug dance in last years super bowl. Like numerous other fans, we have chosen to boycott everything NFL. We have also gathered to burn all NFL shirts, pennants, hats, cards & other football memorabilia. This country and what it stands for... and what those have fought to protect... is, has been, and always will be bigger than the pathetic NFL. This is it for me and others in our community that at one time would gather to watch games...we are ALL finished with the NFL and football as even the college game has been corrupted beyond repair. Shame on the NFL.

  78. I am in complete agreement with InfantryScout7. I was in the Army Special Operation Command. I don't wear the uniform anymore, but I took an oath just like InfantryScout7 did. That oath doesn't have an expiration date. It still applies. Keapernick has the right to protest we all have that right. We do not protest by dishonoring our flag or by not saluting or placing our
    hand over our heart or by not showing respect for our national anthem by not standing up to show respect. Keapernick shows contempt for this country when he doesn't stand up and show allegiance and honor to the country that allows him to play football and make millions of dollars. He doesn't respect those who gave their lives so we can wake up in the morning and go to bed at night in a free country. His disgraceful and dishonorable actions shows just how low a person can get. If he doesn't like it here, I will do my best to get him a flight along with the NFL commissioner to Gitmo. Remember Mr. Kaepernick and NFL commissioner we are free because of the brave.Remember too,there is no such thing as an ex-Army or an ex-marine.I don't believe Mr. Kaepernick ever wore a military uniform because he is too much of a coward to face real danger of combat.He would run away from the duty of defending this great nation.

Now I understand that he has his 'opinion' right wrong or indifferent, BUT you (he) lives in the United States of America, you don't have to agree but you damn well better show respect to my flag and my country, my Service Men, Active and Retired and my Police by standing STILL while my National Anthem is played.

You dictate to these players all sorts of things like attending, practice, curfews, how to dress, etc. You can dang well tell them to at the least stand and show respect during the National Anthem.

  87. Dear NFL,
    I'm a 48 year resident of palm beach co. (FL) and long time Dolphin fan. I've had issues watching football in the last 15 years because of my job. I'm a high school teacher and taught at a high performing school for 7 years. By high performing, I mean football school (Glades Central). After seeing how "pos" kids made $$$$$$$$, it changed the way I saw football. I still "was" a dolphin fan until today. Your over paid drama queens couldn't last a week at my job. I don't want to hear about how they beat their bodies up because I myself have broken 22 bones and have had 4 ACL surgeries doing MX, and I did it for love not $$. As far as I see it, football players are pu****s compared to others! I'm taking time out of my extremely busily day to let you know my feelings about not showing respect for the people who have DIED for this country to show how blacks have been repressed. Let me get this, million dollar thugs have been repressed...

  89. I have been a loyal professional football follower my whole life. I grew up in a family of sport-o-holics. I have stayed loyal through the ups and downs, and the occasional drama. After the unsportsmanlike, unprofessional, and unamerican conduct by your football players from various teams- protesting in the stadium whatever they choose to at any given moment; myself, my friends, and my family are finally throwing in the towel. We have sent back our special devices to watch pay-per-view football; we have deleted our fantasy football accounts; we have taken the extra cable/satellite stations that play football off of our monthly services; we will no longer watch regular season football on any network (we will either watch something else or do something that eschews better conduct- like a board game); we will no longer buy the team jerseys, mugs, bobblehead dolls, helmets, magnets, towels, blankets, bedding, pillows, stadium seats, (you get our drift yet), etc...of ANY FOOTBALL TEAM!!! This sitting down or kneeling during the national anthem or raising of your fist to protest whatever irks you- IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!! I am disgusted by the overpaid whiney babies playing for these teams and others who stand by and allow this to happen. If you allow this to happen and DO NOTHING ABOUT IT- you are condoning the action by your silence and inaction!!!! The NFL is a business and the players are your employees! I have worked most of my life, including the roles of military member and 1st responder. I am a mixed bag of ethnicity, but I am an American above all of that! In all of the jobs I have worked (including the higher paying jobs in the multi-service industry)- we were never allowed to protest while we were on the clock. Period. You are a reflection of the place you work and vice versa. I cannot in good heart or mind support a business that allows this kind of rampant behavior to not only continue but to flourish and infect others with its venom! MY family and friends are also calling their friends and family to share our DISCONNECT from the football league. We can't call you NATIONAL anymore, since your players are not supporting the NATION! I don't want my children, nieces, nephews, cousins, future grandchildren, etc... watching this disgusting pouting, whining, and protesting of your employees on the world-wide-stage! We are not the only country that views these telecasts as you widely know. Our military families and family members are also watching this action overseas as well as citizens of other countries. How do you think that the military members and their families feel overseas watching these overpaid "children" refuse to stand for or even appreciate the flag of the country that these service members are willing to die for to protect- as well as protect the lives of these disrespectful people????? I can tell you from talking with some of them; they are DISGUSTED! The ones that I talk to now no longer watch 'American' football either. Since it seems that the only way to actually reach you is through not spending my hard earned money to support your business; that is what myself, my friends, my family, their friends and family, etc... is going to do!!! Think of this as our protest! Hope you like a lighter wallet!

  90. The choice Colin Kaepernick made to draw attention to a supposed inequity in our country by not honoring the national anthem was his choice. The motivations for this decision must be examined. Was it because he was not being allowed to start with the rest of the team and he was having a pity party? Was it because he has recently converted to Islam and it seems to be the agenda of many Muslims to undermine the government of America? To continue on the path of disrespect and disregard for tradition and patriotism in our country in a time of war is tantamount to treason. This kind of overt disrespect is contagious as we see these kinds of things now happening in high schools and other sports venues and teams. These NFL players are paid millions and millions of dollars by US citizens and we deserve more respect than we are getting from a bunch of spoiled egotistical dividers who want to cause more hardship and pain when they could be true role models for young struggling African American teens who would give their lives to be in the position of an NFL player. I say…..the NFL owners should give them an ultimatum to straighten up and show some respect or be fired!

  93. Goodell is no better than the thugs on the field kneeling down and disrespecting this country. The league is now comprised of a group of sub humans with a commissioner who enables them. I know if a team was owned by the late George Steinbrenner, a player like Kaepernick would be led off the field and gone asap. The league owners need to dismiss the sub humans and not worry about the union and their pocketbooks but no need to worry, the aging fan base will leave stadiums empty within 15 years to watch the flag football thugs.

    Not taking pride in the country and flag it represents ,to at least stand up during the anthem at the games across this country. They are using the NFL as as a platform for
    Their beliefs while we as fans who pay their salaries and we the fans keep the NFL in business due to our purchasing power. I am not watching any football games on TV or going to attend any games. I also am going to start a boycott petition on line to boycott the NFL and their advertisers . I will not buy their products. I am returning NFL items I have already bought for Christmas presents and replacing them with some other sports items. You found it offensive for Christian players to pray after touchdowns but it is not offensive to show respect to our country . This needs to stop black and white regarding
    The use of nationwide platforms. They should use an create a more encompassing platform that they create not one that belongs to the country . I as an Amercan am fed up with the complete disrespect that is shown by these individuals regarding the values that this country was founded on. If they want to be taken seriously they should either return their paycheck or donate them to their cause.

  95. I am 72 years old and have been watching football all my life. I am not going to turn on a football game and watch players standing on the sidelines doing one thing or another for some stupid reason or another. I turn on the game to watch football, I don't want to watch someone making more money than I ever made in my life complaining about anything.

    If the owners cannot control their players while on the field, play the National Anthem while they are in the locker room. I do not want to see their stunts any more. I have had enough. I do not care about their problems, I want to watch football. Let them go to a doctor before and after the game to get their problems solved. If they worked for me they would never play again. I don't care what they are making salary wise. There should be something in their contract where if they do not play they do not get paid. And they would not play for what they have been doing. It has been bad enough watching all the dancing and acting when the make a touchdown, or make a tackle or some other part of what they are getting paid to do.

    This has been the last straw for me. I stopped watching baseball years ago because of the last strike, I can stop watching pro- football too. I will watch college games until they start acting like babies.

    Let them choose another profession.

  96. I do not understand how an owner can allow a protest on "company" time. At my job I cannot protest while my employer is paying me to do my job. I have to do it on my own time. Have the players protest the National Anthem at their kids soccer games or wherever. Don't do it on your bosses time. I can't have political signs up at work. That is my own time where I have have my political views. The players can protest all they want on their free time but not while getting paid and representing their bosses. I have to represent my company while on the job, why are the players different? They should be held to those same standards by their employers. No one has any problems with them doing it on their personal time. I know I would get fired if I used the time my company was paying me to spend time pushing my own personal views instead of representing the organization and doing what they are paying me to do.

I ditched the NFL a while back after growing tired of your Satanic riddled super bowl half time shows, and, frequent appearances of our criminal president, and pandering the NFL does for liberal agendas. Thoroughly disgusting how you prevent Dallas players from wearing something to support law enforcement, but allow Kapernick to wear socks with pigs in uniforms, and continually disrespect our country in front of millions of patriotic Americans. You deserve to lose revenues. Unbelievable that there are no clauses in player contract that prohibit them form negatively affect your bottom line through their irresponsible actions. Maybe you are compensated by the elite goons who have a grip on the NFL like the Boston Strangler to promote their sick agendas. I lost respect for the NFL a long time ago, and justifiably so.

  102. I'm boycotting all NFL games till the league, owners and managers fix this demonstration of total disrespect towards what this country and its ideals stand for, I and my family can find other things to do with our time and money rather then to support a wimpy and backboneless organization.
    If they are willing to give in to every stupidity that emerges from such ignorance well they can count me out.
    I know this country is imperfect but it's better then any other place on this earth.
    God bless America

  103. I will boycott every game NFL presentation, sponsors and cancel Sunday Ticket. Until you take some kind of action againist this disgusting display of disrespect. Kapernick wants to make statement let him do it on his time not at his work place. If I demonstrated that behavior at work I would be fired. What gives him the right to distract from his team and sport. I am not tuning in to see some idiot talk about oppression then do a news conference with a Fidel Castro tee shirt on. How is he paying tribute to a dictator. Then you gutless wonders penalize 3 players for showing their respect on 9/11. I hope enough people boycott that you lose your sponsors then lets see where these go and make that kind of money. They want to make a statement get out into these communities and do so educational work. Go to Chicago where there are thousand of blacks killed every year by other blacks. Kapernicks disrespect for Police is also disgusting I hope he never has to call 911.

  104. There are several things the NFL could do to alleviate this negative image being created by the Kaepernick-ers.
    Here are my suggestions to hopefully stop the disrespectful players that want to further disgrace the NFL by “taking a knee” during the NATIONAL ANTHEM. They do have a right to protest but we don’t need to see them.
    One idea DON’T let them on the field until the National Anthem has been played, they can stay in the tunnel. Make them stay out of the site of the cameras, wherever that may be.
    Or have them share the spotlight with a veteran that was injured during any of conflicts where we’ve been involved. You know, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq just to name a few. Many of us could provide you with the names of worthy veterans that fall in this category. What a positive thing to do to give a free sideline ticket to one of America’s bravest and then the people of the USA can see someone who we admire standing there or sitting in their wheelchair with their hat over their heart, singing along. We can focus on the positive not the negative.
    In addition I will be contacting all the advertisers that I can locate and my friends and I, will be advising each of them that we will not support their product/services as long as they support the NFL and their lack of action. In this respect we’ll let our wallets do the rest of our talking.

  105. Here in our community we had about 100 regular football fans boycott all games this past week. We will continue to boycott and our group will only get larger as word gets around. I cannot believe you allow this go on but punish other players for showing respect. Total disgrace that you would not allow cowboys to have decals on their helmets supporting police. This so very two-faced and total disgrace!!!! I will work to make this boycott get larger each week.

  106. I'am appalled that you are going after the players who honored the people who died on 9/11, but you continue to allow players to protest our flag during the National Anthem. What about those socks Kaepernick wore showing the PIG with a police hat on it?

    You have clauses regarding personal behavior in players contracts, why not suspend the players one game for each occurrence they protest.

    Please note; You are an American company that is allowed Special Exempt Tax status. If you do nothing about those who disrespect our Flag and Anthem. I will do everything in my power to see that those Special tax benefits are reviewed.

  107. Fining players for honoring 9/11 with their shoes but it's okay for a guy to wear socks portraying cops as pigs??? The optics are bad. I'm sitting out the games this weekend. Will find something else to watch. I hope this kind of attitude from players and the league will change. There are a growing number of us fans that are feeling insulted.

  108. Dear NFL Corporate Office,
    The beginning of this season has been rough to watch any football games due to the Football plays NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. Every team player should stand for that and if they do not then maybe they should not play any games in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! I believe that you should tell these guys that and if they do NOT then tell them to hit the road! They should not get paid with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA money!

    If this DOES NOT CHANGE then this is what I would say:
    EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD NOT GO TO ANY GAME IN PERSON OR WATCH ANY GAME ON TV. THE NETWORKS SHOULD BAND ALL FOOTBALL GAMES! With all this then those football players will lose their jobs and money that they DO NOT DESERVE!

  110. The American flag, the Pledge of Allegiance, the NFL doesn't seem to remember the American people are the source of these billions of dollars that they receive weekly, monthly and all year long. These dollars come from Americans that believe in the FLAG and pledging allegiance to it. If you can't CONVINCE the players of the nfl to respect the flag and their allegiance to it; we the people of the USA will boycott the nfl, it's players, it's sponsors and their products until you DO!

  111. Can someone tell me how there wasn't one holding penalty called on the Steelers yesterday? Many were blatant play changers. Pulled jerseys, bear hugs. An eight year old could have made those obvious calls.
    Conspiracy? I know the NFL hates Burfict and the Bangals but yesterday was absolutely pathetic.
    BTW, in 56 yrs old and have never once posted a complaint about a game. Shame on you NFL.

  112. Was going to write a comment citing all the disparity in punishments for various things within the NFL, from assault, twerking, trying to honor someone/group with a part of the uniform, inflating/deflating footballs, posting photos of cops getting their throats cut, disrespecting the flag or national anthem, or a host of other things, but as I started thinking about it, the list is so long I'd be here writing for the entire football season. Seems simpler to just make this short comment summarizing my thoughts with something simple:

    I'm done with the NFL. To the NFL, I will never buy anything from you again, never pay to buy a ticket to one of your games, and never watch any of your games on TV. You are dead to me.

  113. My family (which is big) and myself are done with the NFL. We will watch the Buckeyes since their coach knows the meaning of our nations flag. Its going to hurt the NFL in the pocket book. Maybe we can replace the NFL with Gladiator games!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Dear Mr. Goodell,

    When you fine somebody 10K for twerking, suspend a QB four games for deflating footballs, reinstate a guy who is on video beating his girlfriend (now wife) senseless, won't let somebody wear special cleats to honor five dead police officers, do absolutely nothing to a guy who posts a photo of a police officer having his throat cut, and allow all these selfish "social justice" protests that dishonor the American Flag and National Anthem, there really is absolutely NO reason for me to ever watch another NFL football game.

    I too am done with the NFL and will never buy one of your products, buy a ticket to an NFL game, or watch NFL games on television. I don't plan on buying products that your advertisers sell, like Budweiser beer and a gazillion other things sold by companies who pay the NFL to survive.

    I doubt it will happen, but I can always hope the NFL will lose enough money from the loss of many angry fans, that's you'll realize that the NFL is not the place to allow protests over social injustice. I understand that freedom of speech is still allowed in America, though for how long I don't know. But, the NFL is a business. As the employer of all these immature primadonas, you do have the right to enforce conduct rules. You do that all the time, so why not now?

    Goodbye Mr. Goodell, the NFL has lost me as a fan FOREVER.

  115. I have been a Steelers fan since the days of Bradshaw, Greene, Swann and Harris. And, thanks to my dad and three brothers have always supported the Bears. However, now that the NFL has been co-opted by several narcissistic, immature "men", I will no longer be watching or attending any games. This people of this great nation have generously supported and compensated the NFL over the years and this is what we get in return? The disrespect for the flag, police and military from a few players who have no appreciation for the fact that these people put their lives on the line each and every day for them and their very expensive way of life. Since you (the NFL) have decided to become political, get used to paying a price for it. To think that these players have made any serious sacrifices for playing a game while being paid thousand and/or millions of dollars is ludicrous. The only way to get your attention is to hit you where it hurts.....in your beloved pocketbook. Goodbye, NFL. Stick a fork in me....I'm done.

  116. I am a former San Diego Chargers employee with an idea to share based on all of the backlash about players taking a knee (a stand) against social injustice in our great country. Although it is their right to take that knee, that act or defiance is splitting our cause. It's dividing us when we should be uniting and showing solidarity against the media and every other entity diving this country. My idea is to get these players to unite with or players in other sports with musicians, comedians, actors and artists for a concert or televised show showing that we all are one and we can make a difference and unite this great country. Imagine the tix sales and audience. Just a thought.

    Kind regards,

    As a Veteran, and a retired Firefighter I am offended by the actions of these few overpaid cry baby's, I am appalled that the NFL allows these political statements to continue. They would not allow the Police officers who lost their lives in Texas to be honored, They impose fines on players who wear shoes commemorating those who gave their lives protecting others due to the horrible events on September 11, 2001. These are the real hero's, who day in and day out make a difference in the lives of people that they have never met. The Military continues to protect this Great Nation, that is symbolized by the American Flag, which is honored by the National Anthem. I agree that they have a right to free speech, but please do it in a less disrespectful way. A raised fist symbolizes another political agenda. The Seahawks did it the proper way without disrespecting our country, our military, and our public servants.
    The next time you feel the need to make a political statement please remember this; the NFL is nothing more than entertainment. I too have the right to free speech but I also have a right to choice. I have been a football fan for over 50 years but, after seeing the raised fist protest last night I changed the channel and did not watch the game. I may be in the minority but if enough fans "change the channel" you will all be looking for a different way to make a living. Maybe then, you too can make a REAL Difference in someone's life.

  118. You need to end these protests against the national anthem immediately. Its ruining enjoyment of the game. Enact a rule anyone disregarding the national anthem, not standing up and showing respect, will be ejected from the game, every game, and not paid for that game. They'll face non-renewals of contracts. This cannot go on.

  119. All these anthem notes to you have one thing in common. It pisses all of us off that like to watch the game. I watched (I don't anymore) football to escape from all the B.S. of life. Football was an escape from the daily grind of bad news, politics, and B.S. Now, thanks to Colin Kaepernick and the other crybabies who followed him, I can't even watch football without being inundated with crap from all the talking heads who think they know more than I do about free speech, social injustice, and protest. Go protest OFF THE FIELD and let us enjoy at least one thing in life without all this political nonsense. Oh, and for the record, as a vet, kneeling for the National Anthem highly insults me you primadona overpaid jerks.

  127. I am from the Washington DC area and have been watching the Redskins since 1973 when I was a kid. I am done with the NFL, I can not believe what I am seeing.

All I can say is unbelievable.

  128. The NFL is loosing control of these ingrates called players. These ignorant jackasses don't know how good they have just by the fact they live in the United States. Yet they disgrace the very symbols that represent the opportunities to get where they are today. The NFL is a disgrace for not doing something about this behavior and don't tell me it's about free speech, it is not. The NFL is a business and businesses have standards such as dress codes (the NFL has one) and other standards of which employees must adhere to. The NFL is so politically corrupt (correct) that I will no longer watch their lousy product and I hope people will walk out of stadiums and no longer watch on TV, especially if this fist raising or kneeling during the national anthem continues.

    so I am pretty sure that I will never return. The hardest part has been that I quit HEB grocery but I made my self a promise that I would boycott all who support he NFL and being a better man than

  130. Greetings. I wasn't sure if I was going to leave a statement here and then I read the frustrations being expressed by the real NFL fans in America and thought, my post is not only relevant, its necessary. Although I am a Christian evangelist, I also hold a Masters in Leadership and would like to offer my services to the NFL's corporate offices. Comments here range from disappointments over referee calls, outcomes of players who were reprimanded for inappropriate or unsportsmanlike actions, right down to discontent over how players are displaying their personal belief statements. Many disagree but I know for sure that there is a psychology to all matters regarding human behavior and many of these complaints should be addressed with actual resolve. My association with football is new but my study and interaction with human behavior runs over 20 years professionally. I'd love to talk about nondenominational faith based consulting for players and corporate leaders of faith and general consulting for those who are not faith affiliated. This is not to take away from any system that is already in place, it is in effort to add to it.
    One of the things to consider is that football has long been a safe space for many Americans; its where fans go to forget about the racial tensions, domestic violence, social injustices and many other problems of the world. To turn the game field into a microcosm of the worst parts of society will not only discourage the fans, it will downright turn them against you...this is easily repaired. A fan who calls a player '...an overpaid cry baby' should a be smack talking rant from an opposing side, not an aggressive statement of fact from behaviors being replayed all day on the news...One makes a fan excited for a rematch; the other could potentially lose a life long fan. Let's Talk.

  131. Dear NFL,

    Adios forever. Football used to be fun to watch. Since you now allow politics to overshadow that fun, what is the point of watching? I'll answer that for you - there is no point whatsoever.

    You fine/suspend people for expressing themselves in the endzone in a celebratory manner, but you condone and celebrate people who insult many of the fans who support your product when they disrespect our country. Your double standard is laughable.

    There are so many reasons not to watch they are too numerous to list. Suspending someone four games over too much or too little air in the football is ridiculous. (I'm no Brady fan either.) All your new rules make football seem like a game for little girls. Along with that, you pay all these ego inflated athletes far too much. Many of them make fine role models by shooting themselves inadvertently, getting caught trying to carry a gun onto an airplane, getting so drunk they can't remember if they were complicit in murder, beat their girlfriends or wives, and a host of other things. Fine young men!

    All that said, the straw that broke the camels back for me is condoning all this politicizing of football. It isn't any fun anymore. Like most above, I have far better things to do on a Sunday afternoon that to sit in front of my TV and get angry. Sitting there enjoying some competitive spirit was much more entertaining.

    I'm done with football. I'm done with supporting the corporations that advertise with football too. Adios Budwieser, I'll never drink another one of your beers. Same goes for the rest of the advertisers.

    FYI, to "Evangelist Nidicka Frederick" above, your statement that it's "easily repaired when a fan turns against you" is ridiculous. (Then again, if the NFL fired all these social justice warrior players who politicized the game and banned them for life, yeah, maybe I would watch again, but I doubt that will happen.)

    This is one fan who is done with football forever. Ask me how many games of baseball I've watched since those morons went on strike in the 90's. I'm done with them too.

    The NFL and football suck and aren't worth wasting time watching.

  132. I thought I was the only one upset about the disrespect that the NFL players are showing. Thanks America for stand up to these disgusting people, who cry about the injustice of America, while collecting their multi-million dollar salaries.
    Well I for one will not spend another dollar on the NFL, or products. I will go so far as to boycott all products advertised during the games and will write to those companies that I am boycotting them as well.
    Please don't try to say this is a freedom of speech issue, otherwise the Dallas Cowboys would be wearing the decal to Honor the five dead officers, killed by a racist terrorist.
    I'm done with you. You don't have the guts to defend this great country, you don't deserve our dollars.

    Re: NFL players protesting the National Anthem
    Dear Roger Goodell:
    I was wondering if you remember the 1981 Major League Baseball Strike. I remember it. It was the year I said I would not watch anymore Major League Baseball. {Cancellation of 713 games that year.} I am sure to the striking players it was an important cause but not for me. I watched baseball for entertainment. That was it.
    How does this come into play with the NFL? I am not entertained by the protesters disrespecting the flag, the national anthem and the U.S. of A.! You, the governing body of the NFL can ban such behavior, if you choose.
    Your bottom line is people who want to watch and support their teams because the teams are entertaining! Winning teams get a bigger turn out in ticket sales, hat sales, shirt sales, commercial endorsements, etc. I have noticed that your ratings seem to be much lower than you would like since this protesting the anthem began. These protests are not very entertaining. I am in the group of people in the viewing audience that is not watching NFL football any longer. I AM still watching college ball and I am finding it to be very entertaining.
    Something for you to consider, when I stopped watching MLB I was not married. I did eventually get married, had children, and then eventually grandchildren. I raised them without MLB. 3 generations of NO BASEBALL. Kids, kid’s spouses, grandkids all raised in a M.L. baseball free environment. Surprisingly they are raising their families the same way. I know I am just one person in a sea of people. However I wonder how the NFL will fare should I and tens of thousands of other people take the same position and say no more NFL? (Recently I heard football had replaced baseball as the most popular sport in America. Maybe I was not the only one in 1981 who said “No more MLB!”)
    I am not a racist and I am concerned about the problems with our country. This protest by Colin Kaepernick and others are offensive to my deeply felt affections for my country, for its military, for its statesmen, for its law enforcement officers, for its veterans and for everyone who has lived and died for our country. Also it is disrespectful and shameful that you allow them to do it.
    I am not going to watch any NFL games. I am not going to attend any more NFL games. I am not following the progress of the teams I like. I am not going to purchase anything with “NFL” or any NFL team logos on them. I will not allow any of my family to watch the games in my house, speak of the games in my house or wear any NFL clothing in my house.
    I am going to promote my protest to everyone I know, speak to, work with, and encounter. I will use social media to publish my protest. I will attempt to reach out to others who are citizens who love this country more than they love the NFL.
    This is my letter of protest. Stop the disrespect!
    Sincerely,
    An X-Fan

  134. I completely support the protesting players. The are engaged in a non-violent, peaceful protest and should be respected. It is an act of patriotism to protest what you feel is not in keeping with the promises of the flag and they anthem. It is discouraging to read so many UN-American comments about men who are exercising their civil right.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Why doesn't the NFL just tell the press to quit reporting who does what during the national anthem? It detracts from the game because it is offensive to so many. Moreover, what will be the point of the players protesting if only a few thousand people can see what they are doing?

    ReplyDelete
  136. The feckless leadership of the NFL is disgusting. A football game is not a proper forum for the expression of political views; there is plenty of off-field time for that. Also, the obsequious pandering for breast cancer awareness (let's spend a lot of money on pink stuff rather than just give the money to the American Cancer Society) and for "honoring" the military by wearing a bunch of camo stuff while allowing players to publicly disrespect the country, is more than I can stomach. I am no longer interested in watching NFL football.

  143. Sorry to say I'm done with the NFL. Here are the reasons why, Every other play there is a flag, way to many reviews, players make a routine play and they feel the need to do a crazy dance. Players feel the need to express there political views. When will they learn that we pay to watch them perform and don't care what there personal views are. The amount of commercials are way out of hand. Games use to be played in less than three hours, now it's three and ahalf or longer. And finally just put flags around there waist because you can't hit to high or to low can't block to high or to low. As much as I love the sport I must say good bye.

  145. The refereeing yesterday on the Steelers/Patriots was pathetic. There were dozens of holding calls ignored against the steelers. ON TWO OR THREE INSTANCES, THERE WERE STEELER OFFENSIVE LINEMAN TACKLING PATRIOTS DEFENSIVE RUSHERS ON KEY PLAYS, BUT THE REFS CALLED ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ON THE TEAM THAT GOODELL HATES. I emailed Goodell two months ago that Kapernick was going to turn this kneeling fiasco into a huge racial incident.....in the last day or so Kapernick shows up wearing a Black Panther t-shirt. Glad the NFL has a good handle on this...NOT!! BLACK LIVES OR WHITE LIVES DON'T MATTER WHEN YOUR CARRYING A GUN. Especially if your pointing a gun or object at a cop. If a cop tells me to stop, I stop. I don't run and act suspicious. Of course, there have been several killings that were terribly wrong and these cops should get the book thrown at them. However, the NFL has a policy stating that no platforms of any kind or protests are allowed period on NFL playing field. Good job on that Goodell. So now you've decided to not show the National Anthem, not good enough. So I'm done with sport as well.

That was so far beyond disgusting and pathetic officiating that I cant believe you can even consider your league anywhere near legitimate anymore. Its more like the WWF. That game was decided well before kickoff and its not even up for debate. Seattle has always faced an uphill battle (even cost them a super bowl) when it comes to the officials but now its just gotten out of control. To be frank, the NFL stinks and its very clear at this point its clearly a rigged league. I love my Seahawks and have since I could speak understand what football is so this is sad and disgusting. If you hate them so much then yank their franchise. You have lost every ounce of Credibility.

Once upon a time it was possible to listen to Broncos games on KOA on the internet but no more its now all blocked for some reason not clear to me. I will never pay to view any programing that is more than 50% commercials. You are being paid by those sponsors I will NOT pay you more. So now I have no reception of ANY kind.

Perhaps Goodell should take a lesson from Jerry Jones. These guys are a bunch of "see me" not see what I do!! I donate to a charity, I go into the heart of Chicago and say STOP.

    1. Hopefully; And maybe they'll adjust to officials calling the game between Minnesota/Dallas. I realize my speech may be impeded for the next hour... seeing I'M a Bear fan. But how can you not call either face mask or hit to the helmet of a quarterback, on the last play of the game. Human error one thing, possibly costing a game and careers quite another. Especially when they have so many views.
