Legendary baseball announcer Vin Scully is boycotting the NFL over national anthem protests.
“I will never watch another NFL game,” the former Dodgers announcer told the audience while speaking at an event in Pasadena about Roger Goodell and the NFL, according to TMZ Sports.

This is not surprising at all. Scully is known as one of the most famous announcers sports history, and he’s never really held back when it comes to politics. He famously slammed socialism during a live broadcast. I’d be more surprised if he did indeed agree with the national anthem protests.
His comments also represent the way many Americans feel. Lots of people have been turned off to the NFL ever since players kneeling and refusing to stand during the national anthem became a thing in the league. It’s probably not a stretch to say he speaks for lots of people in this country.
