One Jacksonville Jaguars fan had enough of NFL players and officials disrespecting the men and women who fought and died for this country, renting a plane and protesting the league from roughly 1,000 feet above the stadium.
Terry Smiley, a one-time avid Jaguars supporter, said he was “disgusted” by the professional athletes who chose to “take a knee” during the performance of the national anthem; vowing to make his voice –and millions of other angry football fans- heard by the players.
Smiley rented a plane and a pilot, flying the message, “BE AMERICAN. BOYCOTT THE JAGS AND THE NFL,” from 1,000 feet above EverBank Field on Sunday before the Jaguars took on the Los Angeles Ram.
“I have the right to protest and I’m going to protest it with bumper stickers, airplanes – whatever I got to do. I will continue to protest,” Smiley told local news.
Do you believe in your country? Do you believe in ‘The Star-Spangle Banner’? If you don’t stand up for it now, you won’t have it in the future,” he added.
