Protesting during the national anthem has ratings so low that broadcasters are cowardly removing the entire event from being televised.
In order to appease the climbing outrage of patriotic fans who aren’t interested in overpaid NFL players ruining football with political BS, Fox Sports has announced a change in coverage which equates to the removal of airing the national anthem altogether. According to a spokesman for Fox Sports instead of showing the national anthem they will return to a previous schedule that plays commercials during the anthem in preparation for the kickoff.
Fox Sports is now saying that they will go back to what they had done in the past, namely, not showing the playing of the anthem during game broadcasts, according to Newsday.
Calling this year, “one of the more bizarre starts to the season that we have ever had,” Fox Sports President Eric Shanks released a statement saying: “The standard procedure is not to show them because of the way the commercial format works and the timing of the anthem to get to the kickoff,” Shanks said Tuesday at an event to promote Fox’s soccer coverage of the 2018 World Cup. “So I think we’re going to pay attention to events.
“Who knows what’s going to happen? A lot of time is happening between now and then. But I think the plan would be to get back to a normal schedule. I think that’s where we sit today on a Tuesday . . . It seems like there’s more than 24 hours in a day now, doesn’t there?”
Liberals continue to claim that this ‘peaceful’ protesting by NFL players isn’t anti-American and in fact patriotic to the diversity that is America, pretending that disrespectful kneeling is somehow acceptable and doesn’t represent an attack on the American flag. In reality that’s exactly what it is and the ring leader of this whole situation, Colin Kaepernick, spoke those exact sentiments during an interview last season.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Liberal say what?
