NFL Owner Says He Is ‘F*****g Livid’ At National Anthem Protests
I spoke to an NFL owner tonight on background and he is not happy with players protesting the national anthem.
“I am f*****g livid right now. I see this s**t and I lose my mind. It needs to end immediately,” the owner told me during a brief phone conversation Monday night.
He also added, “I’ll give up football completely and find something else to do with my time if this continues. This horse s**t must end. These players are so out of touch. They disrespect our flag and then wonder why Trump won. It’s a no-brainer. This is so disrespectful.”
“People will run to college football over the NFL in droves if these protests continue,” the owner concluded at the end of the conversation
Protests swept across the league Sunday, and hundreds of players refused to get up and stand for the anthem.
To be clear, the owner I spoke with owns a small minority share of the Green Bay Packers. We feel this makes him uniquely qualified to put his finger on the pulse of everyday Americans instead of out of touch billionaires.
