Who is ready for the NFL season to be full of politics and debates about the national anthem? I know I sure am!

There’s nothing football fans love more than pivoting the focus away from scoring touchdowns and to protesting during the national anthem.

Are you sensing my sarcasm by now? You should be because I’m dumping it on.

Football isn’t about politics. It’s about uniting for a common goal, working towards that goal and winning the game.

That’s what the players are paid to do, and that’s what the fans tune in for. We don’t tune in so that we can be lectured by millionaire athletes.

Unfortunately, the national anthem ship has sailed when it comes to the NFL. It looked like the league had moved past the issue, but it’s clearly going to be all over the place in 2020. It’s not what we like to see at all!
