NFL  –  Nike – “Just Do It”, Really?

NFL  –  Nike  –  “Just Do It”  Really?

Hippocry !   Where were you in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 

* In 2012,  the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for

each game to pray, They also had an issue with Tebow wearing

John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made

him remove it.

* In 2013, the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green

cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

* In 2014, Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press

conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus/Know Peace”,

but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector

before speaking at the podium.

* In 2015, DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing

“Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.

* In 2015, William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to

raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has

a domestic violence problem ).

*In 2016, the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing

a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers

killed in the line of duty.

* In 2016, the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to

wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

So please tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and

expression. All of a sudden it seems quite clear, based on the

above facts, that the NFL has taken a position against any

action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue:

For God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic

violence, for cops killed arbitrarily for being cops, for the

Memory of 9/11…

BUT, they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our

National Flag, our National Anthem, for America , and for

the American People … if it will help mollify a particular

group and its supporters. That is who and what the NFL

now has shown itself to be.

Please pass this post along to all your friends and family.

Honor our military … too many of whom have come home

with the American Flag draped over their coffins.

Rest Well, You will surely be remembered
