The NFL is a national disgrace.
America’s biggest sports brand is an anti-American enterprise.
And that’s why President Trump slammed the league after new information was revealed.
The NFL is one of the most dysfunctional businesses in all of America.

These players disrespect the American flag before every single game and then have the audacity to act like they’re martyrs for their cause.
Most people don’t see it the way they do.
And that’s why their ratings are abysmal because when they kneel it’s an insult to every person who has fought and died for our country.
Trump gets that and that’s why he didn’t hold back on Sunday.
He said, “Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison,” the president Tweeted on Sept. 9. “Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade. If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!”

The NFL made it very clear that they don’t care for their loyal fans.
Why else would they continue to allow these players to kneel?
They could have stopped all of this with that one rule but they decided against it.
The NFL was too scared to confront the issue head-on.
Overall, the NFL lost about eight percent of its audience in 2016, which was the same year that Kaepernick first kneeled.
But in 2017, the league found out that ratings fell another ten percent.
That’s a huge drop.
If you were a business owner and you saw those numbers then the wisest decision would be to shake things up.
That’s not what they did.
President Trump acknowledges this and it’s fantastic that he’s not scared to speak his mind on it.
Trump told Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in May stated, “This is a very winning, strong issue for me. Tell everybody, you can’t win this one. This lifts me.”
That’s exactly what happened too.
These owners are terrified of Trump because he exposes how anti-American these players are.
That’s probably why Jones introduced a team policy because the NFL refused to do anything about it.
Jones was asked about whether his players would follow the rule and he simply responded, “If they want to be a Dallas Cowboy, yes.”
What’s more is that his star quarterback and running back, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, had his back. They both agreed with the new team rule.
The media publicly criticized his decision to do that.
Even players around the league referred to him as a racist “Uncle Tom” figure.
Trump responded to Jones’ new rule too and said, “Way to go Jerry. This is what the league should do!”
That’s exactly why the Cowboys are America’s team.

They are leaps and bounds ahead of any other team in terms of net worth and branding.
Other teams don’t come close.
And they are losing fans at a record pace because of their players’ decision to disrespect our veterans and service people.
It’s pretty obvious why Trump intervened.
And he was the perfect person to do so. https://offthewire.com/donald-trump-destroyed-nike-ad-with-these-four-words/
