Letter to the Editor

One less NFL fan

Tuesday, July 27, 2021

Open letter to the NFL and Commissioner Roger S. Goodell:

First you allow players to kneel when the National Anthem is played, which was a hard thing for many to watch. Now, I have just read the NFL will be playing the Black anthem at the start of football games tears it for me.

There is one National Anthem and only one! For all Americans no matter what color we are, period! What part of that do you not understand?

I have been a Green Bay Packers fan for 82 years. I look forward to football season with gusto. Cheering on the quarterbacks from Tobin Rote to Aaron Rodgers. No more!

When the NFL and Mr. Goodell made the decision to bow to the political agenda of the hateful liberal left they lost this USMC veteran as a fan. Iím disgusted and offended with the mentality that has surrendered honorable insights and love of country to this liberal left mob, rather than putting on your big boy pants and stand proud for America, doing what is right, one anthem played with fans and players standing with their hands over their hearts.

I say enough is enough! I and many more who feel as I do have dropped the NFL football season from our viewing schedule. All I have left to say is, shame on you and God Bless America!
