And so it begins. The chaos has finally arrived. We’re all in at this point. If you thought there was any chance we’d have a normal season in 2020, your eyes should be completely open at this point.

As a football fan, I’m not looking forward to this at all. I’m not looking forward to the fact our favorite sport is about to become super political.
Honestly, it just sucks, and it shouldn’t be this way.
A) don’t speak for me
B) if you still think it’s about disrespecting the flag or our military, you clearly haven’t been listening https://t.co/tnsEq5D9WC
