Things to do in Monmouth County instead of watching football today

NFL football players disrespecting the American Flag and the National Anthem is now officially sanctioned by the league.

In response to President Donald Trump’s call for NFL owners to fire any player who takes a knee during the patriotic opening ceremonies of their entertainment events, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players.”

MMM supports the growing boycott the NFL and calls on the NFL owners to fire Goodell.   We also call upon sports bars and restaurants to not play NFL games at their establishments.   MMM will give free advertising to any Monmouth County bar or restaurant that cancels their subscriptions for NFL games until the league implements a policy of patriotism for its employees during games or for the remainder of this NFL season.

    Even before this asinine movement, the NFL has become a freak show and a joke. Could you imagine Vince Lombardi tolerating big diamond earrings, dreadlocks or Beckham’s idiotic bleached blonde chia pet haircut on his players? These buffoons who dance around after making a simple tackle have already ruined the game. This is the final nail in the coffin. Let the Rams dismal attendance spread throughout the league. God bless our military and screw the NFL

    Art, it’s not just the fact that identity politics has infected the NFL games, the latest being NFL players kneeling for our National Anthem while in London, yet standing for the British National Anthem, it is also the fact that American Football may be headed for extinction as did the dinosaurs.

    What about the very serious brain injuries suffered by football players (CTE Degenerative Brain Disease) caused by repeated blows to the head?

    High Schools and Colleges MUST start acknowledging this fact and review whether or not they should continue to allow children and young adults engage in this contact sport which has caused serious brain damage. Unless they take action now they are exposing their schools (and taxpayers relative to public schools) for severe liability in the future.

    We can stop these injuries by ending support for this type of contact sport activity! All human life matters!

    Tom, that is a totally separate issue which is not limited to football. This is about these ungrateful morons who are disrespecting the flag and military who have allowed them to become fabulously wealthy by playing a kids game. Don’t let them off the hook by conflating the two

    #Proud Republican

    Ending this contact sport at the high school and college level due to injuries will end the NFL.

    Will you also join me in demanding that our military stop funding the NFL? They have given at least $5.4 million to the NFL.

  5. Proud Republican said at 1:08 pm on September 24th, 2017:

    Definitely. All funding including service branch advertising should end. And for the record, I don’t want to see the NFL end, just the classless stupidity that is infecting it starting with that bumbling weakling Roger Goodell

    The NFL allows players to kneel in protest of our Flag and Anthem. The NFL does not allow players to kneel in prayer #TimTebow.

    Boycott the NFL, their advertisers and their merchandise. Boycott ESPN.

    Send them a message they will understand.

    But we also, from a humanitarian standpoint (no political angles), must review contact sports in high schools and colleges and the causal relationship between this type of sport and serious brain injuries (CTE Degenerative Brain Disease). It is also a serious financial liability for taxpayer owned public schools which must be addressed by both parents and the school system.

    as usual, good point- so many things to do in our area.. I have already given up on any institution, custom, belief, or conservative point of view being respected any more. Just another Obama era “gift” that keeps on” giving.” So sad, maybe fellow Americans will wake up and not take this any more, but I fear things will get worse before they get better.
