Over the past few weeks, NFL protests have metastasized into something racist and nauseating. No longer are some of these athletes (owned and contracted to do what the owner tells them) content to quietly protest by sitting or kneeling through our National Anthem, as we’re now witnessing an rising number of athletes flashing black power salutes after they sack white players on the field.
President Trump has had enough, and several days ago spoke out about the Non-profit/non-tax paying NFL allowing for this to go on, telling Americans to turn off the game, while recommending NFL owners to “get that son of a b***h off the field right now … he’s fired!”
Over the weekend, these players organised massive protests across the NFL to defy President Trump, where over 200 athletes took a knee or sat, with whole teams choosing to stay in the locker room as the National Anthem played.
These players have:
The “NFL” a non-profit, tax free organization making millions every season. What do the owners of these teams give back to the fans who built their stadiums and keep them full? What do the cities that support these non-profit/tax free teams get back from the owners who they support?
Where are the shelters for families or the food kitchens in cities with NFL teams. Where is the free fan appreciation day? Like Michael Jackson said “They don’t give a damn about you!” its all about the money!

2014 Update – How Come the NFL Makes $10 Billion a Year and Pays No Taxes?
Does a multi-billion dollar enterprise like the National Football League, with a commissioner who “earns” nearly $30 million a year, deserve non-profit status? Why do we let the NFL slide when it comes to paying taxes? And is it worthwhile for taxpayers in cities with NFL teams to fund new stadiums just to keep those teams from skipping town?
