NFL is Taking From Breast Cancer, Veteran Funds, To Pay For ‘Social Justice’ Settlement

By Jason Patterson | USA

Eric Reid told reporters on Saturday that the NFL is planning to use money put away for breast cancer charities and the “Salute to Service” veterans fund to pay for a seven-year, $89 million “social justice” new organization to help placate protesting players.

This unamerican, unthankful, racist movement was first started by out-of-work second-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, and retired NFLer Anquan Boldin. Forced the former, all American sport to announce the nearly-$100 million initiative last week as a way of “settling” with a coalition of players who have been kneeling during the national anthem.

At the announcement, they said the NFL said only that owners would be allowed to allocate funds to “projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education.” But, Reid says, the money spent on these projects isn’t new — it’s simply being reallocated from existing charitable giving projects. At this point, there was still some questions to clear up.

Of course, due to basic human nature, the players don’t agree on if this was a good solution. A couple players blamed  Players Coalition leaders for holding beliefs no longer in the best interests of the protesters. While others claim the money was an out-and-out bribe and refused to sell out their cause for any amount, others saw the deal as merely rearranging the deck chairs. Their concern was that the NFL would allocate funds already earmarked for charity, or spend it on public service announcements that essentially are advertising for the league. In this situation its simple, no one will end up happy, just a bunch of spoiled babies, who want their way.

As of last Sunday, these protests have still been active. This pathetic attempt was to solve the slumping ratings. All this has done so far, is cause my controversy. Now, at this point, the only question is, should I boycott the NFL?

This week’s national anthem protesters again came from the usual collection of kneelers, sitters, and fist-raisers.

For the Los Angeles Chargers, left tackler Russell Okung continued his raised fist during the national anthem, as he has done for several weeks. Okung is one of the players who said he will continue to protest during the anthem, rejecting any compromise crafted by the Players Association and the league.

At Oakland, running back Marshawn Lynch again remained seated during the US national anthem (the Mexican national anthem, which Lynch stood for weeks ago, was not performed) before his team’s game against the Giants. Lynch later used the energy saved by sitting during the game, breaking off a long run for the first Raiders touchdown in the game.

The Los Angeles Rams continued to see linebacker Robert Quinn put his right fist in the air during the anthem, with punter Johnny Hekker against putting his arm around Quinn in support, a maneuver they have done most of the season. Running back Todd Gurley and receiver Tavon Austin linked arms.

In New Orleans, the Saints once again knelt as a team in unity before the national anthem, rising once the song began. Some players and coaches locked arms.

At the Meadowlands, cornerback Marcus Peters of the Kansas City Chiefs stood in the tunnel during the national anthem, coming back to the field once the song ended. He has done that for five straight games after sitting in the early part of the season.

In Miami, safety Michael Thomas, tight end Julius Thomas, and wide receiver Kenny Stills all kneeled during the anthem, as they have done for weeks. The trio recently returned to the field after staying in the tunnel for weeks after receiving approval from coach Adam Gase.

The San Francisco 49ers saw receiver Marquise Goodwin, safety Eric Reid, and linebacker Eli Harold kneel during the anthem before their game against the Bears. Receiver Louis Murphy stood behind them with his right fist in the air. Reid is among the players adamantly opposed to the league’s money offer.

For the Tennessee Titans, receiver Rishard Matthews stayed in the locker room during the anthem but emerged after. He is currently out with a hamstring injury.

The lone new voice in the protest coalition was Baltimore Ravens linebacker, Tyus Bowser. He knelt in prayer in the end zone during the beginning of the national anthem before running to the sideline and putting his hand over his heart.
