Millions Of Conservative Women Who Don't Care About Football Boycott NFL Because Of Anthem Protest
Millions of Conservative women from across America tuned in to the first preseason NFL games of the 2018 season to see if any players would be kneeling during the playing of the national anthem in protest of what they perceive as racial injustice. After seeing several protests, these women are now going to boycott the NFL, even though they know absolutely nothing about football, and never watch games anyway.
Ruth Carson explains, "I'm not into sports. I've never been to a football game. I once dated a pitcher, but that is as close as I ever got to being a fan of the NFL. I do like Peyton Manning. He is funny on those commercials. I tuned in last night to see a match between a couple of squads. Some of those players were kneeling during the anthem. I saw them kneeling right there at the dugout. I got so mad I stood up and went to the kitchen to get something to drink until the anthem was over. How can they be so disrespectful during the anthem? I determined right then and there that I would boycott the NFL for the whole season."
The same story was unfolding on social media all morning. Meanwhile, the NFL posted huge TV ratings, probably from people tuning in to see if they would be tuning out. Several women interviewed said their boyfriends or husbands will also be boycotting the NFL. Carson mentioned that her husband, Jim would only be turning the football games on to see who is kneeling, then switch over to the hockey games. "He's such an American patriot," she says. "I suppose if there was an NFL team named 'Patriots', Jim would watch them."
