I lived off the grid for 15 years and the one thing I missed the most was watching pro football.
When we returned to civilization we made sure we could get the sports channels so we could watch pro ball. Not now. I’m disgusted by the antics of the players who are raking in millions of dollars to entertain us with their athletic abilities. How can they show such disrespect for a nation that allows them to play a game, live in luxury and enjoy all of the freedom our country allows.
Yes, there are injustices, but not to the extend that are found in other countries or societies. If they want to change things in our society why don’t they use more of their money and energy toward education, charity and setting a better example of how to live in a democracy.
Marshawn Lynch would have been lynched if he lived in another country and disrespected his own flag while standing for another. Maybe they should all move to Mexico or their country of choice and give up their U.S. citizenship if they hate it here so much.
Needless to say, I have not watched one single game this year. I’m done with them.
