The NFL Is Officially Dead As Dallas Cowboys’ Owner Gives Players The “Green Light” For This…
(Tea Party 247) – Professional sports resumed over the summer after a major hiatus thanks to the coronavirus though the new look of these leagues has many fans uninterested in tuning in. The NBA and MLB have both gone all-in for the Marxist movement Black Lives Matter with both leagues allowing and encouraging their wealthy and privileged players to protest on the clock while “BLM” and “Black Lives Matter” is being etched all over fields and courts.
You’d think if there was ever a group of people willing to stand up and fight for America being the greatest country in the world it would be wealthy and privileged athletes who are akin to royalty, no matter what skin color or ethnicity they are. Yet, here we are in 21st century woke America and BLM reigns supreme.
Apparently, with all their wealth, privilege, power, and influence they still feel empty inside leaving them fighting to end “systemic racism” only so they can lay their heads down at night feeling like good people. It truly boggles the mind how any black person in America who has made millions of dollars, or even hundreds of thousands, as a public figure can stand behind a narrative that disparages and villainizes this very country that made them what they are.
When you accrue millions without much education in a country like America, standing for the National Anthem should be automatic as a show of thankfulness that you live here. Think about that professional athletes? https://t.co/HGGC9hMutg

I digress. The National Football League is set to kick off its 2020 season this week despite all preseason games being canceled thanks to the coronavirus but fans aren’t exactly chomping at the bit to tune in, especially when tyrannical Dems are making sure fans remain as disconnected from their favorite sports as possible by not allowing them to attend those games, just like the NBA and MLB.
Watching a game with cardboard cutouts in the stands and pre-recorded audience sounds just doesn’t seem to excite people but more than that, the leftist politics are turning fans off in a big way and the NFL seems to be embracing the very politics that are running the MLB and NBA right into the ground.
Despite having in the past insisted that his players will not kneel during the National Anthem, it looks like the owner of “America’s team,” the Dallas Cowboys, has decided to kowtow to the radical left. Owner Jerry Jones has recently done a complete 180 and given the “green light” for his players to embrace BLM on the field leading many to believe the NFL is officially dead.
BizPac Review has more on this:
Even the Dallas Cowboys, known as “America’s Team,” will be protesting during the national anthem, according to players on the team, and for Eric Trump, that was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.
“Football is officially dead — so much for ‘America’s sport.’ Goodbye NFL… I’m gone,” President Donald Trump’s son tweeted.

Cowboys player Tyrone Crawford told the Dallas Morning News that members of the team have been given a “green light” to protest as they see fit before games.
“We definitely [have] the green light on all that but also just trying to find something that’s going to make a boom,” Crawford said. “It’s not just going to be something that people look at it one time and kind of swipe by it, they’re like, ‘Oh, that’s great. The Cowboys did that,’ and swipe by it.”
To get a feel for the atmosphere in Dallas, the headline of the article that included the player’s quote stated: “The Cowboys shouldn’t need a ‘green light’ from ownership to protest against racism, social injustices.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been adamant over the past few years that his team will stand during the national anthem, but in the face of an onslaught of support for Black Lives Matter, he appears to be relenting.
Recognizing “the times we’re in,” the owner will attempt to walk a tightrope between supporting players who want to protest and potentially disgruntled fans.
“There will be no angst between me and the players, and no angst between me and the fans,” Jones said last week. “I would hope that our fans, which I think that they will, will understand that our players have issues that they need help on, and they need help from the majority of America. They need help.”

But given that the liberal media, which includes many of the reporters covering the NFL, are consumed with the social justice narrative, and that the sports world, pop culture, corporate America, and Big Tech are all on board, Jones really doesn’t have much of a choice.
Standing firm for what he believes in will leave Jones a pariah in Goodell’s NFL.
If Roger Goodell stands firm with BLM he won’t have a league to be commissioner of soon enough. Fans are just not tolerating this extreme dive into political activism and it’s alienating millions. When Colin Kaepernick infamously took a knee several years ago, millions of fans condemned it but tolerated it because it wasn’t endorsed wholesale by the league, now, not only is it fully endorsed by the league, it’s being encouraged and promoted.
“The NFL stands with the black community, the players, clubs and fans confronting systemic racism,” the commissioner told reporters recently. “We will not relent in our work.”
In their “work?” Their work is literally to entertain the masses by playing sports. Not to lecture hard-working every day Americans who don’t have a racist bone in their bodies. Did these sports leagues ever really know their fans? Or are they just hell-bent on destroying professional sports in America. If it’s the latter, they’re sure doing a bang-up job.
NFL fans: we know you love the game but leftist politics have overtaken the league and corrupted it. If we continue to support professional sports and their political agendas the lunacy will never end. Football is America’s sport and the NFL is America’s professional sports crown jewel. If we do not take a stand now and show Goodell and the players that we aren’t interested in their politics, nothing will ever change.
How dedicated are these wealthy players to this cause? When they stop receiving paychecks, will they still emphatically kneel for the anthem and lecture Americans? It’s time we force them to put their money where their mouth is. Boycott these leagues, especially the NFL. Enough is enough. If they want to be woke, it’s time we make them go broke.
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino put it perfectly on Twitter:

It’s time to tune out all of professional sports until they get their act together.
