It’s Super Sunday and even before the coin toss, the NFL has fumbled again on the issue of disrespecting the Star Spangled Banner.
The NFL invited AMVETS, the largest U.S. veteran’s service organization, to place a free ad during Super Bowl 52.
AMVETS' idea for an ad was simple and profound in a two-word message reading: “#PleaseStand.”
But the NFL rejected that ad fearing that some might consider it a political statement.
It’s now crystal clear that the social justice warriors have taken over the commissioner’s office.
If asking Americans in America to stand for the American national anthem is deemed to be a political statement, the NFL is now irredeemable.
It’s also apparent that the people in the NFL front office never really were all that concerned about players taking a knee during the anthem.
