There was a time when NFL football players did exactly what they were paid to do, and that was to throw a ball and run with it without dropping it. But now these players want to make a difference in the world, and there is no better way to do that than by becoming a social justice warrior. These “woke” individuals stomp around the country bringing awareness to causes that have been dealt with years before. For instance, racism in America, correct me if I am wrong, but I do believe that the majority of it has been handled, but don’t tell that to unemployed Colin Kaepernick and his buddies who are still kneeling for “equality.”
These arrogant players insist that they need to raise awareness about racial inequality and police brutality and the only way to do that is by spitting in the face of veterans across the country. This season the protests have continued despite millions of fans boycotting, which has caused ratings to nose-dive drastically.
This is exactly why what these NFL players and executives have decided to do in November makes no sense. And, if they follow through with this absurd plan, you can kiss the NFL goodbye for good.
The NFL is making moves to make the entire month of November “social justice month,” and they plan to promote it much like they would with Breast Cancer awareness, or any other accepted cause.
Michael Bennett, the man who lied about the Las Vegas Police racial profiling him. is behind the idea, and now it appears as though the NFL commissioner is jumping on board.
What this boils down to is that the league is inching closer to accepting Black Lives Matter style protesting for an entire month.
According to Downtrend:
Now it is being reported that a group of blacktivist players sent a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell calling for the league to set aside an entire month to promote community activism and black equality.
The group includes Seattle Seahawks troublemaker Michael Bennett who recently set off a social media firestorm by accusing police of racial profiling and roughing him up when he was seen exhibiting suspicious behavior when they responded to reports of a shooting at a nightclub after the Mayweather-McGregor title bout in Vegas. The Las Vegas Police have denied Bennett’s claims and the player is looking to cash in off of a civil rights lawsuit that will also serve to elevate his profile in Kaepernick’s army.
The others who signed the letter are Malcolm Jenkins who is thrusting his fist into the air on the sidelines in the uniform of the Philadelphia Eagles, ex-Kaepernick teammate Torrey Smith who also plies his trade in Philly and former player Anquan Boldin who also played with Kaepernick when he was with the San Francisco 49ers.
NFL, NFLPA meet to discuss player social activismhttps://t.co/YrESj9FQpN

The league issued the following press release this week:
NFL, NFLPA meet to discuss player social activism
The NFL and NFL Players Association met Tuesday to discuss social activism by NFL players, the two groups announced in a joint statement.
“The NFL and NFLPA met today to discuss the important issue of social activism by NFL players,” the statement read. “Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith, Eric Winston, Robert Kraft, John Mara, Art Rooney and other player leaders engaged in a productive conversation. We are all committed to an ongoing dialogue.”
The meeting comes a week after a group of eight players, more than half of NFL team owners and Goodell met at league headquarters in New York to discuss social issues important to players.
In addition to those two meetings, Malcolm Jenkins, Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith along with Goodell and Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie met with Philadelphia community leaders last month to get a better understanding of the criminal justice system.
Jenkins, Boldin and Smith invited Goodell and Lurie to join them in meeting with community leaders, which included Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross and community advocates for incarceration and bail reform. Eagles defensive end Chris Long and safety Rodney McLeod also accompanied the group.
It appears as though social activism month is coming our way which means no football for many us all through November. If these players want to keep up their anti-American protests, then they can do it while their ratings plummet into the toilet, and they finally get the memo that NO ONE CARES ABOUT THEIR PROTEST. The only thing we want these players to do is run down the field, catch a ball and make a touchdown. They can leave their protests at the door where it should have been the entire time.
