NFL Commish Says Rejection of Veterans’ Ad for Super Bowl Does Not Indicate ‘Lack of Support’ for the Troops

Published

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is under fire because his football league rejected a pro-veterans advertisement to be broadcast during the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Goodell attempted to spin in his official statement, claiming that the NFL’s rejection of the ad does not mean that his league refuses to support the troops.

“It’s not an indication of any lack of support,” Goodell said during an appearance on ESPN Radio, via PFT. “We have a VFW ad that talks about, celebrates the important work that our veterans are doing, and of course you all know we’re going to have 15 medal of honor winners that we’re bringing together at the Super Bowl, which I think is the largest number of medal of honor winners ever brought together at any event other than their annual national gathering.”

The ad that was rejected by Goodell came from the group American Veterans (AMVETS) who hoped to solicit donations from patriots worldwide in order to “enhance and safeguard the entitlements” for America’s heroes. The reasoning behind the ad’s rejection was likely because it contained the message: “Please Stand.” Because so many NFL players followed in the lead of washed up QB Colin Kaepernick and refused to stand for the national anthem, this simple message is now considered controversial in the NFL’s eyes.

AMVETS national commander Marion Polk sent a letter to Goddell earlier this month explaining why the ad should be displayed during the Super Bowl. He said his group was “well aware of the controversy surrounding players kneeling during the national anthem and the public relations problems this has caused the NFL, our ad is neither a demand nor a judgment upon those who choose to kneel.”

Polk explained that the ad was “a simple, polite request that represents the sentiment of our membership, particularly those whose missing or paralyzed limbs preclude standing.”

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said to the Washington Post that the ads are “designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl.” He claims that the league “has long supported the military and veterans and will again salute our service members in the Super Bowl with memorable on-field moments that will be televised as part of the game.”

While the patriotic ad was considered inappropriate for the Super Bowl, an ad featuring drag queen perverts was approved by the NFL to be broadcast.

Sabra Hummus has released a teaser ad featuring grotesque cross-dressers Miz Cracker and Kim Chi, who gained prominence on the reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race. They will be featured in a full 30-second spot during the Super Bowl.

By turning their backs on veterans while supporting drag queen degeneracy, the NFL has shown its extreme left-wing bias.

Ohio High School Football Players Reinstated After Suspension For Entering Field With Thin Blue Line, American Flags

Why were they even suspended?

Published

on

Two Little Miami, Ohio high school football players who were suspended from their team for entering a game while carrying the Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line(commemorating firefighters) flags have been freed from suspension, after community members expressed outrage at the punishment of the two young men.

Jarad Bentley and Brady Williams had been given an indefinite suspension from the Little Miami High School football team for carrying the two flags onto the field before a game, apparently violating a rule against political symbols. The two seniors reject the notion that they were making a political statement, and one of the boys had spoken of his intention to honor first responders, such as his own father, on the anniversary of 9/11.

After concerned parents and community members organized a protest event to stand with Williams and Bentley, the Little Miami School Board reversed its decision, freeing the senior players from suspension.

The President of the school board seemed keen to establish that the institution “supports police,” perhaps feeling the pressure from angry parents displeased to see the patriotic young men kicked from the football team for an innocuous display of patriotism.

They still might face some consequences, and reportedly team officials had commanded the players not to enter the field with the flags. Their punishment will be settled within the athletic department’s code of conduct.

College and high school sports teams put on elaborate displays in support of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement all the time. Pro-police and firefighter flags are not a political statement by a long shot. This suspension never should’ve been issued in the first place.
