I agree that the disrespect for our Nations flag is alarming but I don't think the NFL is really suffering in ratings (at least not to the point that they would fire Roger).

Boycott the SF 49ers for letting him act like an idiot, seems to be already happening anyway.

I respect famous athletes for taking a stand on the wrongs of the world. They are very powerful symbols, and if anyone can create change it is our athletes. Now I do not agree with them on the flag issue, but I cannot sit here and say they need to wield their influence to create change, and then tell they cannot do it for something I do not agree with. 

To this day, I have little respect for Michael Jordan, at one time one of the most powerful people on the planet. What did he do with that influence.......nothing.

Thanks for the list. I'll be using this to send a message to all these sponsors that they will NEVER get one penny of my money if they continue supporting the NFL in its Anti-American crusade supporting its pampered millionaires and their political agendas.

Oh, and the backlash to this shlt has already started. The Pittsburgh Steelers have already got the message from their fans and they're done with all the kneeling bullsheet. Others will follow or they will find themselves with no fans except the few sullen malcontents who want to destroy the country because it's not perfect.

On a symbolic level, the POTUS has whipped his *** with the flag time and again with his despicable behavior... Start boycotting anything Trump if you expect to regain any of your lost credibility...

The only NFL game I watch Now is the Falcons. Bye week, I did not watch a game. If the Falcons start kneeling and protesting the flag, I am done forever more. The only way these super wealthy players can get their paychecks is because Americans died to make that possible. 

Players, donate your time and money to help the problem, Don't ruin the game because you are in uniform and on TV.

Do you understand that BOTH sides are threatening to boycott these products and therefore these companies can't really tell the NFL what to do?
