Football star Odell Beckham imitates a dog peeing to protest Trump. 

 

After he scored the first points of the day, he got down on all fours, lifted his leg, and pretended to pee.

NFL flips it's propaganda line from "We love freedom of choice" to "We love unity" (we oppose freedom of choice) 

 

Ten days ago: 

 

American is great because we have freedom of choice 

 

Today: 

 

The NFL's Denver Broncos announced that they will stand together on Sunday in respect to the national anthem, the country and its veterans.

Here’s How Much Money the NFL Rakes in From Taxpayers

 

The fact is that a business that raked in $14 billion in revenue in 2016 is heavily subsidized by local, state, and federal money based on dubious claims about stimulating the economy.

 

One report on Watchdog.org said that over the past two decades, the NFL has raked in about $7 billion of taxpayer money to spend on stadium renovation and building.

 

Another study from the Brookings Institution showed that federal taxpayers have subsidized the construction of 36 stadiums at a cost of over $3.2 billion since 2000. 

 

 A bill sponsored by Sens. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., would prevent teams from using municipal bonds that are exempt from federal taxes.

 

Lankford said in a statement in June:

The federal government is responsible for a lot of important functions, but financing sports stadiums for multimillion—sometimes billion—dollar franchises is definitely not one of them. Using billions of federal taxpayer dollars for the subsidization of private stadiums when we have real infrastructure needs in our country is not a good way to prioritize a limited amount of funds.

No NFL players protest before games on Veterans Day weekend 

 

 

"Taking a knee does not disrespect the military."

 

"We will not take a knee on Veterans day to show our respect for the military."

NFL Ratings Plunge As 23 Million Fewer Viewers Watch Divisional Playoffs 

 

Ratings are plummeting so much that virtually no major media outlets are even talking about ratings at all. It’s almost like the league and its television partners have put out the code red not to acknowledge the collapse in viewership so far in 2018.
