Drunk on fame, the NFL players who protest our national anthem don’t seem to worry about the consequences. They think they’ll be able to get away with this, without it affecting any aspect of their lives or the league. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, as the nearly empty stadiums confirm. And now, a long-time employee in the National Football League has had enough and decided to quit his job.
After nearly thirty years, Bills Stadium worker Erich Nikische has quit his job immediately after what happened during the national anthem.
“I waited until the National Anthem ended, I took off my shirt, threw my Bills hat on the ground, walked out,” Nikischer said in a sit-down interview at his West Seneca home.
Prior to their latest game, several Bills players knelt during the national anthem, while others locked arms.
“I can’t stand and support something where our leader of this country is just acting like a jerk,” LeSean McCoy said in a post-game press conference.
Members of the NFL think of the protest as a show of solidarity and in response to President Trump’s remarks Friday evening toward players they believe were divisive. However, there were plenty of people – fans, players, politicians – arguing both sides, reports Red State Watcher.
During his speech in a recent rally, President Trump encouraged fans to boycott the NFL until this nonsense is stopped.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired!’,” Trump said. “You know, some owner is gonna do that. He’s gonna say, ‘That guy disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in this country.”
Unfortunately, instead of seeing disrespectful players getting fired or quitting, we witness this sad story about a hard-working man who just couldn’t bear looking at these smug b*stards getting away with their behavior.
