NFL Player Accurately Predicts Horrific Thing Players Will Do If Forced To Stand For Anthem

As most of you already know, recently NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell publicly noted that he believes every National Football League team along with its players, should in fact stand during the National Anthem, as a way of honoring “our flag and our country.”

He also noted that he intends to instate a policy that would basically “force” every player to stand for the National Anthem, despite whether they want to or not.

Unfortunately however, not every athlete sees it in his perspective. According to ESPN, defensive lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Gerald McCoy seems to disagree with Commissioner Goodell’s intentions and believes that if that actually happens, there would be an “uproar.”

“I don’t think guys are gonna like it,” McCoy explained, during an appearance on Adam Schefter’s Know Them From Adam podcast. “I think it’s gonna be an uproar if that is to happen because you’re basically taking away a constitutional right to freedom of speech. If guys wanna have a, I guess you would call it a peaceful protest, I don’t think it’s right to take that away.”

Now, this athlete has never kneeled during the National Anthem nor does he ever plan to. Yet, he seems to strongly oppose the commissioner’s opinion.
As our sources further reported, the NFL is planning to discuss this issue over the next few weeks during their regularly scheduled New York meetings.

On early Wednesday morning, President Trump tweeted a post regarding this matter in which he showed his complete support for the Goodell’s decision. Last month, our commander-in-chief also said that he believes the NFL should fire every player that kneels during the National Anthem.

“Commentary this morning about the Commissioner’s position on the Anthem is not accurate,” the league’s statement said. “As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week. The NFL is doing the hard work of trying to move from protest to progress, working to bring people together. Commissioner Goodell spent yesterday with Miami Dolphins players, law enforcement and community leaders witnessing first-hand the outstanding work our players and clubs are doing to strengthen their communities. Players from around the league will be in New York next week to meet with owners to continue our work together.”

What do you think? Do you agree with the NFL commissioner?

      THESE DISGUSTING ANTI AMERICAN SPOILED MILLIONAIRES ARE DISRESPECTING ALL THAT AMERICA STANDS FOR.. DISRESPECTING OUR AMERICAN FLAG AND OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM.

      MOST DISGUSTING THAN THAT THEY ARE SPITTING IN THE FACE OF ALL WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR OUR FREEDOMS THE VETERANS AND ALL WHO SERVE OUR COUNTRY..

      IN A PERFECT WORLD THESE TRAITORS WOULD BE SENT OFF TO A COUNTRY WHERE THEY WOULDN’T HAVE ANY FREEDOM TO PROTEST OR THEY WOULD BE KILLED OR IMPRISONED..

      THIS IS THE MOST DISGUSTING ACT OF HATRED FOR OUR COUNTRY!!

    No i dont care anymore for this disrespect of our flag&anthem, maybe there is another way to accomplish whatever the fuck you spoiled brats want-but as a fan i have witnessed a major stupidity from certain players that cannot be excused….The one player who said bye we dont need fans is what i cant believe….How did this guy pass any academic test? Was he pushed thru the system because he can play ball? I dont have the answer and can only assume his education was secondary….Empty seats is a statement not a passing fad nor is bad tv ratings…What r u going to do when your paychecks stop coming in? Do you think the owners are going to put up with this shit and deplete their bank accounts paying your overpriced contracts? i think not!!! I do enjoy football-just not the politics…PS All Lives Matter!!!!

    They are protesting for a lie, and the statistics prove it is a lie. Are they that stupid that they don’t realize they are embarrassing themselves?
