The NFL is in serious trouble. Their fan base is turning on them at lightning speed over displays of disrespect for the National Anthem and the flag.
Many fans are even burning valuable pieces of NFL memorabilia. In the first video below, a man says:
“I’m a season ticket holder, I love the NFL. Always have, always been a huge fan. Wish I could have played in the NFL if I had the athletic ability. Instead I went in the Marine Corps, served my country. My grandfathers served our country, both of them served in World War II. There are a lot of people who fought and died for that flag, and to disrespect it yesterday like you did. I’m done.”

A Packers fan becomes an ex-Packers fan today. It was his decision. I never thought I would see the day a Packers fan burns their gear. 🙁 pic.twitter.com/arKOcaENgv

The American flag and National Anthem are more important than any sports team.
You would think the NFL would know this.
