Meanwhile, videos calling for fans to counter-protest are getting more views than the games themselves. Coincidence?
And with the fans and players as far apart as they’ve ever been, Management made another announcement in response to the Veteran’s Day boycotts.
You’ve heard about the boycotts, haven’t you?
After referencing the planned moment of silence for Veterans, they went on to the policy that is driving the fan boycott:
At the same time, the NFL and NFLPA issued a joint statement Saturday saying that “there has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem,” which says players “should” stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” but doesn’t require them to do so.

Seriously? No change?
How many gut-punches do they think their fan base will take before they’re gone forever?
There’s a reason this video is up over 10 million views.
And if the NFL doesn’t figure that reason out soon? The much-vaunted NFL could be about as popular as jai alai or lacrosse sooner than you think.
The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity. That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
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!
