    This is what I predicted 3 weeks ago before 1st game…however…the NFL and TV broadcasters are forgetting twitter…FB…and all other social media….IF fans do go to the stadium an c they see the protesting continue THEY the fans will send out notice and ,as also walk out and no amount of TV censorship will prevent that medium…remember in business word of mouth is a 1 to 10 ratio…for one unsatisfied customer ten friends hear that gripe…with social media ….IF do not know the official ratio..but believe it is like 1 to250…as most FB users have 175 to 300 friends…I just a thought.

    They’re playing the home viewer for a fool. Those watching the games from home will be watching to see exactly what the team will do during the plsying of the anthem, and in my opinion, will be infuriated to be served a commercial in place of the anthem! Besides, it may be too little too late. They may have lost most of their media fans anyway.

    1. Arlene Driver says:

      I don’t think tv viewers are going to like not seeing and hearing the National Anthem, that is a big part of football. If they stop the anthem from tv, I will continue to boycott nfl games.

  3. "pAPI says:

    it wont change anything people have cell phones and the protest will still be posted to social media and the news networks will continue to broad cast these protest ” ITS A LITTLE TO LATE NFL YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHIGNA LONG TIME AGO

  4. Shirley says:

    That really shows what a coward that you are! Your decision is to run and hide rather than to seek justice! So my decision is just to turn you off so I am not reminded of what you are hiding! Your bottom line is money! Not all of your viewers who pay your bills! So Sorry this is not going to happen! Our Country has been insulted!

  5. NOPE! DAMAGE DONE! TRUE COLORS SHOWN!!!

    1. Margaret deVries says:

      Too little too late !
      We now know how racist they are!
      We’ve lost all respect for them !
      Unless you get rid of all Black Racists. Were not watching!
      Black power salute ? Very racist ! Even then we’ve lost faith in NFL
      ITS All about money !! Well y’all enjoy your retirement ! !

      Just what I was wanting to say but you did it better!

  6. LB says:

    Only for viewers watching from home or not at the game.
    What about the viewers who pay to see a football game?
    Leave your protest off the field. Do it on your on time.

  7. Tim says:

    As long as this BS continues the nfl will continue their fall from the favor of the fans. BOYCOTT THE nfl.

  8. Rook says:

    LOL were not gonna show you how the players are disrespecting the flag were going to continue to tell you about it and giving interviews supporting the Liberal Agenda but yet we think you’re so stupid to think because were not showing you the disrespect then its ok and you wont boycott the NFL !!!

    Two Faced NFL don’t work for the fans either !!!

  9. Nana says:

    NO. As long as they act like spoiled rotten children instead of adults, we will still know it because the MSM will keep taping and showing it on TV anyway. You just can’t keep stupid news off of technology today. I vote for boycotting them until they stop totally and grow up.

  10. Jennifer says:

    No way
    You people don’t get it.
    NFL IS STILL WRONG. WHEN DO YOU APPLOGIZE TO THE PEOPLE AND STOP THE INSANITY?
    IT’S EITHER BACK TO 2104 OR IT’S OVER. STAND HAND ON THE HEART
    WE WILL EXCEPT NOTHING LESS
    UNITED WE STAND FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

  11. Alan Winner says:

    It doesn’t work for me I will not be watching any Football game or supporting their sponsors.

  12. Shirley Barnett says:

    Do they think the fans are as stupid as they are. What a solution to come up with. I wouldn’t watch another NFL game ever with the trickery they are plotting. There are plenty of college games, and other sports to watch without helping them out to continue getting their big salaries. Just go away.

  13. Leslie says:

    Extreme cowardice!!!

  14. Daniel Foster says:

    Get rid of NFL CRIMINALS, THE FELONS THE ONES THAT DONT LIKE COPS, WITH THEY’RE DISQUESTING BEHAVIOR YOU CANT EVEN WATCH WITH YOUR KIDS.THESE PLAYERS ARE CRIMINALS AND ARE NOT WHAT ANYONE WANTS THEY’RE KID TO LOOK UP TO .WHERE ARE THE WELL MANNERED GOOD PLAYERS OF YESTETDAY.YOU REALLY SCRAPPED TO BOTTOM OF THE BUCKET for these criminals and my family wont be back until there gone.

  15. Peggy9 says:

    No, this is NOT the answer! We WANT to ser the anthem, and we want the “players” to respect it and our country, our military, and our police!!!!!!! If they can’t do that, they can go to another country they like better!!!

  16. Lawrence says:

    The players give the fans, flag, country the finger…and we are to sit there and root for them. But not televised anymore…just the people in the stands. Make me laugh…BOYCOTT!!! Anarchists, shut them down!!

  17. Daniel says:

    No no. This won’t work. The people in the stands will be leaving, and some stadiums will look bare. People will notice this during the plays, especially when the show a review of a passing penalty. Noway to cover-up the empty seats, unless they buy enough mannequins to fill them.

  18. Judy stiltner says:

    No channel on NBC tonight on the football game. Screen was just plain yellow. Called and Dish did not know why our screen was just yellow. They had better let us know tomorrow as it was the Seahawks game and we wanted to know whether they took a knee or not so we could turn it off if they did.

  19. Sonita says:

    This is so stupid. The fans in the stands will still know and if from what I have seen and heard, they don’t like it either. It’s wrong, plain and simple for the players to use this time to protest something they say doesn’t disrespect our flag or our country. If that be the case, don’t have the anthem at all and if they want to protest, then refuse to play and stay home. But NO……that’s a whole different story. This protesting crap…..does not change a thing. It only makes people more raciest. Especially when you are messing with our flag, anthem and disrespect to our military and them on the field. Grow the heck up people. God made this world for all to live in and laws to live by. We have justice systems to handle the un-justices in the world, but there is a process. Wrong does not go unseen. NFL commissioner….coaches…….shame on all of you.. supporting this wrong. I will NEVER have no us for football ever again. Teaching our kids to do this crap when they don’t even understand. How people sit in the stands and watch this is beyond me. UN-AMERICAN!!!!!

  20. BaboinWV says:

    So the people are going to pay all that money to get there and have a good time only to have to sit through players kneeling to the National Anthem. In essencee you are taking the people for hostages? Isnt’ that kind of along the lines of a woman yelling rape that was never touched? Or an employee coming to work and bringing his family drama with him? People don’t want to pay all that money to come to a game just to see a bunch of overpaid ingrates and become their hostages. In order to clear the situation up tell the players to get up off their knees and be respectful.

  21. Bobbie says:

    And the fans that are in the stadiums of course won’t tell if they stand or sit keep thinking that and let’s see how fast the ratings drop. We still won’t watch. Go do something positive like vollenteir change somebody life for the better taking a knee does NOTHING

  22. Jenne says:

    Good riddance NFL!

  23. Mike says:

    Why not just do what the NBA did and mandate that everybody stands for the Anthem? If anybody was to protest during any other job, they would be fired! No difference here!

  24. Jonny Vincent says:

    I agree it changes nothing. Do they thing the American public is stupid? They are playing games, and yes, the players work hard to be good enough, but that doesn’t make what they do any more meaningful. When their play becomes offensive, it is time for us to get another hobby. The good guys, like Jerry Jones, will suffer because of it.

  25. Kim says:

    They must take the American People for fools.
    Really you think this solves the problem.
    You run and hide. Shame on the NFL and everyone making these crazy decisions. I will continue to Boycott.

  26. Charlotte Quattlebaum says:

    No! I knew and even told my husband this was how they would handle it! “Out of sight out of mind”! You would think that they would know by now WE are not the stupid ones! We don’t forget! WHAT WE WANT is to see them act like the respectful Americans they should be! We will NOT give them our hard earned money supporting such thuggery! We have to give them our tax dollars (can’t control that other than by voting) but we can control our entertainment money!

  27. d4Texas says:

    How’s this for a fan reaction – Next game the players take a knee “during” the National Anthem, immediately “AFTER” the Anthem, the fans from the entire stands come down and start walking around mingling ON the field-of-play wearing “Blue Lives Matter”, “Military Lives Matter”, “First Responder Lives Matter” t-shirts and prevent the players from even playing.

    What are the referees going to do? Penalize the fans?
    Hopefully the cops will side with the fans and stand down by making no arrests.
    Think that would really piss off the kneeling players?

    However, this MUST be a peaceful assembly of ALL fans ON the field to prevent the game from being played. – Don’t Play, Don’t get Paid!

    Now THAT would send a message to players and the NFL.

  28. Carol Gibson says:

    NO

  29. mark says:

    So let’s see if I understand this… because I can’t see the players dis the flag and the country that made their careers and multimillion dollar lifestyles possible I’m suppose to watch a commercial and have a bud? To me this only gives legitimacy to a legitimate protest based on emotion and lies, BLM is a terrorist organization designed to start riots and division among Americans using fake news and ignorance. If they were so concerned with black lives let them give half of their salaries to the communities they came from to help “black lives” lift themselves out of ignorance and poverty. besides are they protesting the last 8 years , just who was in power during all this injustice and racism non other then the biggest racist of all Barry Sotero.

  30. Sharon says:

    This is nothing but a COP OUT. Try fining or firing players who don’t stand and respectfully place right hand on heart like we were taught to do in grade school. Or earlier if you were from a military family. If they can’t honor those who fought, bled and died for the freedoms they enjoy, they need to find a country they can enjoy as they are NOT American citizens in the true sense of the word.

  31. Ed Evans, MGySgt., USMC (Ret.) says:

    Cowardly cop-out instead of leadership within the NFL organization. Myself and many others will continue to boycott the arrogant NFL and its sponsors with renewed vigor. WE fought for this nation and its freedoms, and we will continue to demand respect for our nation, our flag, and our freedoms.

  32. Tina says:

    This is a dumb excuse for the NFL not to enforce their code of conduct upon a bunch of winey little over paid brats, what about those that attend the game and are subjected to their disrespect on the field. this is not going to stop anything just because your not airing it doesn’t change anything. the nfl allowed them to break their own code of conduct so it is actually a blow in the face to the nfl these players are just telling the owner & the coaches that you don’t matter, you don’t count, you don’t sent the rules, these players are actually saying the nfl owners & coaches are NOBODIES

  33. Mary says:

    This is just putting a bandaid on the issue and not really solving the priblem. You can’t pretend to be the ostrich with his head in the sand and act like you didn’t see it happening. To not film the players protesting and not fixing the issue is just hiding your head in the sand.

  34. Mark Bertolet says:

    This is not only an insult to the home viewing fans but it does nothing but continue to insult the fans who go to the games. In short the NFL is saying “we can’t contol our trained naughty mokeys, so we just won’t televise their misbehavior. Well, I for one AM INSULTED as much or more because now the NFL is insulting me by not showing our National Anthem, and they think we, the fans are dumb enough to be tricked bt the see no evil, hear no evil so no evil BS. Really? Are the NFL management that OBTUSE.

  35. James H Humphrey says:

    Just another losing action by the NFL. I will not watch the game nor support any advertising that supports the NFL. You are still a bunch of gutless money hungry libturds that are afraid to confront your players. Players rule, owners lose.

    1. Bob says:

      Well said, my sentiments exactly.

  36. Jim Fuller says:

    The NFL is clueless. You pay these morons millions of dollars to play football not protest. Then you go and cave to their demands which by the way is a total disrespect to the men and women who fought and died for this country. You not only disrespected them but you disrespected millions upon millions of patriotic Americans. Screw you NFL take your million dollar players and the both of you go find a safe space to whine in. America is done we have spoken.

  37. mike says:

    You have just made it worse IDIOTS. Why can’t you follow the rules? If they don’t then fire them, bench them or trade them. Very simple.

    Mg
    never watching this crap again.

  38. Wade. dozier says:

    Just another example of dodging the issue….NFL commissioner is a coward….

  39. gus allen says:

    they have lost me I will not watch again

  40. R. Miller says:

    NFL IS DEAD IN MY LIFE! DONE! Boycotting it AND ANY SPONSORS I LEARN OF!

  41. Frank Swafford says:

    Disrespect not shown or viewed on TV is still DISTRESPECT……………….

  42. thomas earl millet says:

    This won’t work, it is a tradition that the anthem is played before every game. It’s an American game and an American tradition. Enough is enough of the hate filled democrap liberals trying to dismantle American culture and our constitution. I’ll start watching again when the nfl starts firing the disrespectful racist hater kneelers.

  43. Jean Hampson says:

    Goodbye to the NFL(Not for Long group) they paid NO ATTENTION FOR WAY TOO LONG!!!! I HOPE NO ONE GOES TO GAMES,BUYS MERCHANDISE,OR WATCH ANY GAMES!!!! OWNERS AND PLAYERS ARE BOTH “CLUELESS”!!!! MOM OF A NAVY Seal!!!!

  44. Beverly Jorgensen says:

    No we do not think this is right. The National Anthem has become part of us/America at our games. It is saying to you who served we will just somewhat ignore you. We will still just somewhat not support America. What is happening to our country? from the left and some republicans as well who really aren’t republican any longer, they area ripping apart the very core of American…Veterans, our flag, and church, our respect for each other to speak and not be beaten because we speak up is being attacked folks. The school systems/ colleges are already a waste of time and money since they use this for propagandizing their beliefs shutting everyone else down. Somewhere we need to take a stand for America. The young do not understand why we want this….the left wins then. So taking a stand, speaking up, not giving in, fighting for what is true is needed. There is probably going to be a war in American, not from Isis but from this crazy bunch of loons . No we won’t go back to seeing the NFL or watching on TV until this is resolve. These footballs payers simply need to understand who pays their wages. They are boycotting America and fair is fair we boycott them.

  45. This is their Job! you are not allowed to protest on the job you are being paid to do. If you want to protest find another time to do it. Why don’t you go out into the community and try to do some good to help. Being a jerk on TV is not helping anyone we just want watch your game and then they will cut football off TV. If you really care about your country you will stop this stupid act and try to do some good for you r fellow man.

  46. Yep, the Nuts are running the asylum. Apparently there’s no Leadership in the NFL, just a bunch of whiners. Why don’t they “Do” something to Help their cause instead of driving away the fans? And Why Offer them big money to continue. The Money should be Contingent on compliance. Period. So you all just threw a whole bunch of money at them for their causes so What are they doing with it? Take it Back if they’re Not willing to work with you.
