I'm a die hard NFL fan - not just any football, NFL football. I started watching decades ago. I used to also watch a lot of college football but drifted away from it over the years. But you know what, I might drift back. It seems to be largely politics free, despite the overlay of progressive liberalism that infects so many university and college campuses.
I watch football to see spectacular plays, not watch millionaires and near-millionaires, regardless of color and ethnicity, disrespect the American flag and national anthem in a misguided protest because the emotional snowflakes have got their feelings hurt by a president who is equally and unapologetically speaks out against those who put politics ahead of their country and ahead of their job.
Why should I support a league that supports people who will put their opinions ahead of their product - entertaining viewers who are looking for an escape from politics - something that has become increasingly hard to do in news coverage, TV shows, movies, music and education. The constant drumbeat of progressive dogma had one unalterable respite - sports. The NFL seems to have self-excluded from that club. So now it's NCAA football or maybe NASCAR. At least that's going to be my approach until the NFL comes to its senses.
