Who Cares What The NFL Pro Football Players do now, Because I don't.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Washington DC Country Club member, have become a source of social scorn to me these days. Something like the Pro Football players are doing in protecting this country's National Anthem.

Who Cares What The NFL Pro Football Players do now,.....Because I don't.

Ever since these NFL Pro football players started disrespecting this country National Anthem, by not standing. I don't pay much attention to what the NFL football players does anymore.

Something snapped inside me and the NFL looks worthless to me now, and of course, I love football. But apparently not to the point of cheering for the football players who keep disrespecting my country National Anthem.

Isn't that funny how that happen with me. So I wonder how many other people feel that way too.

Who cares what the NFL does anymore?

A timeline of Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest and the NFL players who joined him

Colin Kaepernick was alone in his early protests but has now been joined by players from around the league.


The most noteworthy part of a national anthem before a NFL game used to be a great singing performance or a riveting flyover. Colin Kaepernick changed that. All eyes during the anthem are now on the San Francisco 49ers quarterback and other NFL players who have joined him in sitting or kneeling during the anthem.

Kaepernick began sitting during the national anthem this preseason. A silent protest to show support for people of color who are being oppressed in the United States, and to take a stand against police brutality. It’s an effort to use his voice and his position as a NFL player to effect change for the people who are suffering, and don’t have the same ability to create significant change.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said, via "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."

Initially, Kaepernick was alone in his protest. And unnoticed. His protest didn’t come to light and gain national attention until the third preseason game. Since then, he’s continued on with his protest while being joined by several other players from around the NFL.
Here is a complete timeline of Kaepernick’s protest and every NFL player who has followed suit.
