GAME OVER: NFL Players Sit-Out National Anthem Hours After Vegas Massacre

posted by admin - 7.25.17

The National Football League is at the center of nation-wide controversy regarding players who choose to protest the national anthem and the American flag. Attendance, ticket sales, and television viewership has sharply declined as fans tuned out following weeks of professional athlete’s “taking a knee” during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’

President Trump brought the issue to the national forefront late last month, when he urged NFL fans to boycott the game until league officials banned players from protesting during the national anthem.
