Well, the league is NOT going to like this…
Sports organizations receive substantial tax breaks to start up a team, build a stadium and bring sports to a community.
President Trump is questioning why the NFL is benefiting from these tax breaks when they’re not clamping down on the disrespect that players are showing to the anthem and the flag?
Really, this is chump change to these guys that make millions.
But President Trump, like many of us, has had it with the NFL and their antics.
‘Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!’
NFL stadiums have received an estimated $6.7 Billion in taxpayer funds — approximately 70 percent of the cost of the stadiums.
Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!

Guess what kiddies?
President Trump isn’t alone. Watch Congressman Gaetz (R-FL) has said that kneeling for the anthem by Pro Football players is disrespectful. In America, we stand to show respect, we don’t kneel.
Rep. Gaetz hits the nail on the head right here:
Protest if you want, just do it on your own time, on your own dime.
Rep. Gaetz says that in 2015, the NFL voluntarily gave up their tax-exempt status, but the changes should be made permanent for all sports leagues.
Tucker Carlson had Rep. Gaetz on his show to discuss his suggestion:
What do you think?
End the subsidy of the (formerly) über-profitable NFL?
Or does that go too far?
Have you had it with the NFL? You’re not alone.

Buy them now at Keep and Bear.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

Speaking of Badassery, grab this tome that’s filled with it, you will LOVE it!
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
