I have for the most part forgotten about the NFL in 2017. I don’t care for the spoiled arrogance of these millionaire social misfits. It probably actually started back during the Ferguson protests and riots, when several of the then St. Louis Rams pranced on the field with their hands up mocking the false “hands up don’t shoot” claim. Which we know now was a complete lie. I was at the time a season ticket holder of the Rams. BTW, I don’t miss them, not one freaking bit. They belong in LA, where everything is an ugly fantasy.
I will not mention players by name, or give them as a collective group much attention here. It is attention they seek; and they care not how they get it. End Zone stage like performances have nothing to do with football, it is attention, look at me crap. Real football players score and hand the ball to the ref. If I want to see an act, I’d go watch a play. The old saying “act like you’ve done it before. I also got sick of watching players make a routine tackle (often after a significant gain with their team trailing) only to celebrate like they just won the lottery. Pathetic!
I have not watched so much as a full quarter of football this season. I have gotten glimpses as a reminder why I quit watching when I meet friends for lunch on a Sunday at a sports bar. I have no control over what is on the TV, and when there are sets in every corner, the screens are right in front of you. Only a blind man would miss them. However, I pay little attention, spend my time in conversation or play a little Golden Tee. I have not missed watching a favorite team. I can’t say I have one. Kansas City Chief’s from my home state would be the closest to a home team; but even they I found disgusting.
I have survived without the NFL, and its saved my money. A great investment, invest in your self!
I find watching college football to be more entertaining. When their players act in a selfish, unacceptable manner there is a greater chance they serve some kind of punishment or discipline. You make an obscene jester to the crowd, your probably sitting next week and not for the anthem.
I have found the best answer to kneelers…………….do not watch.
