The XFL banned one act that has liberals hopping mad

33

The NFL has been mired in controversy over the past few years.

Sensing cracks in the NFL’s seams, the XFL is returning to provide fans with some spring football.

And now the XFL banned one act that had liberals hopping mad.

The XFL is back.

Vince McMahon’s failed experiment from years ago is getting a reboot, but this time the league might be able to carve out a niche fan base.

The NFL lost many fans in recent years for several reasons, including poor officiating, excessive penalties, concerns over CTE, and political demonstrations.

On the issue of politics, the XFL is taking a very strong stance.

The league refuses to make the same mistake the NFL did when Colin Kaepernick’s anti-American anthem protest swept across the league.

XFL commissioner Oliver Luck prohibited the display in the strongest of terms.

Luck said “there will be consequences” for players who violate the rule.

This is precisely what the NFL should’ve done from the start.

Instead, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell botched the controversy from the beginning.

He didn’t learn his lesson from the NBA, which banned political displays during the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner in the 1990s after point guard Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf protested during the anthem.

Goodell’s actions led to a massive drop in television viewership and stadium attendance.

It got so bad, the New Orleans Saints and a handful of other teams apologized to season ticket holders for the ugly displays.

Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) canceled her Titans season tickets in response to the disgusting protests.

One of the low points during the anti-American hysteria was when members of the Jacksonville Jaguars played a game in London and knelt for the Star-Spangled Banner, then stood for God Save the Queen.

Fans are sick of being lectured to in every aspect of their lives.

Coincidentally, Kaepernick had discussions about playing in the XFL, but his salary demands were so exorbitant, the conversation didn’t go anywhere.

Somehow Kaepernick has positioned himself as a man of the people while raking in millions for book deals and shoe contracts.

Kaepernick isn’t fighting against the system.

He’s being embraced by the system.

The system is who’s giving him awards, praising him for his “bravery,” and lining his pockets.

It’s unclear if the XFL will be successful as a credible spring alternative to the NFL, but they’re ahead of their competition in at least one area.

Should the NFL adopt a similar policy regarding the national anthem?

  2. I think it’s inherently problematic that these athletes get paid millions for something that many high schoolers do.

  3. These players are on the job and getting paid for playing, not protesting. If I protested at work I would be fired, and I think every player that protests on the clock should be fired or suspended without pay.

  4. If we were able to see the XFL on our TV as we, as seniors, can’t go to the games due to physical difficulties and the distances to a game. And we like their stance.

  5. Any kneeling or disrespect for our Country by overpaid liberal whiners and I’m gone. Period.
    Still not watching since it all started. I have better things to do.

  6. I APPLAUD THE STANCE!! THESE OVERPAID PRIMADONNAS NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT ATTENDANCE AND VIEWERSHIP FUND THEIR SALARIES AND WHO BUYS ANYTHING THEY ENDORSE. WITHOUT THESE THINGS THEY HAVE ONLY THE GAME, NO MONEY. THE PROBLEM IS THAT 99% OF THEM DON’T COMPREHEND WHERE THE MONEY ACTUALLY COMES FROM AND THAT IF THE OWNERS OF FRANCHISES HIRE THEM FOR MONEY THEY IN TURN EXPECT RESULTS WITHOUT ALL THE NEW FOUND FAME AND FORTUNE BEING ADVERSELY EXHIBITED ON GAME DAY.

  7. As long as there’s companies out THERE that will coddle to the likes of kaperdick with their anti-American themes there will be these selfish and blind ppl such as nike and kaperdick who will continue to pray on the innocent people who sees the problems we have in this country and spin it and turn it until it becomes unrecognizable and mute. kaperdick is to worried about his own pockets and how much he can stuff in them. Until the ppl get tired of him and nike and throw them both out of the country for good. Maybe throw twitter with them. Garbage begets garbage.

  8. By law no Moonie Muslime should even be allowed on United States soil read the details outlined within Chapter 2, Section 212 of the McCarren-Walters act, that Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf should have been stripped of citizenship and booted as far from United States soil as possible, the one thing him and Crapinhead have in common is that both are Moonie Muslimes and just like Mahmoud neither should be allowed on United States soil.

  9. Even though I do not watch professional sports since my husband passed, I do commend XFL for taking a firm stand on this issue. Perhaps the NFL will follow suit. But I doubt it.

  10. I have not watched an NFL game for three years, since these idiotic displays of disrespect came about, starting with an idiot named koepernek, or however you spell it. I will not until the cowards a the NFL do something about it, and I think any American would have the same thoughts about disrespecting our flag and country, which has provided them with the ability to protest….just not disrespect my flag and my country, which I helped to defend when I was younger.

  11. I quit watching NFL because the 49ers condoned what Kaepernick did not him, he’s a full fledged nut not worth paying attention to. The teams should have stopped it. There the most at fault for everything that happened afterward.

  12. After what happened to the NFL you would think it will never happen again. Players made poor choices and ended up being tossed. But what happened in London by the Jaguars was unexcusable. Those players caused the NFL to lose hundreds of millions of dollars and millions no longer even watch. Americans use to be proud of their country but a few losers started acting like traitors and nobody said anything about it until it went too far. None of this should have ever happened.

  13. Colon Kraperdick was the MAJOR mistake made by Roger “the dickhead” Goodell by letting Kraperdick degraded this Country of USA. The people of AMERICA will not go along with this B.S. by being DISRESPECTED by these LOWLIFE SCUMS.

  14. I am not a sports fan, But anytime some JACKASS out there starts discriminating against OUR GREAT COUNTY I disrespect them in a heartbeat. Until they are the shoes of those serving OUR COUNTRY, THEY ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING OTHER THAN LINING THEIR OWN POCKETS. THEY GET BIG BICKS BY RUNNING BACK AND FORTH ON A FOOTBALL FIELD, THAT IS CERTAINLY VERY HARD ON THE BODY. BUT I THINK ABOUT ALL THOSE SOLDIERS SERVING THEIR COUNTRY GET ALMOST NOTHING FOR THE WORK THEY ARE DOING SO IDIOTS LIKE YOU CAN KEEP ON DISRECTING THOSE WHO SERVE SO YOU HAVE THAT RIGHT. ACTUALLY I THINK IN MOST SPORTS, FOOTBALL, BASEBALL AND WRESTLING, THEY HAVE NO MORALS AND THEY ARE DISGRACE,PERIOD. THERE IS ONLY ONE MESSIAH, ONE KING AND THAT IS THE ONE AND ONLY OUR ALMIGHTY GOD. THERE AGAIN I WAS JUST THIKIN AND SAYIN. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THOSE WHO AR TRUE BELEIVERS IN GOD AND JESUS CHRIST, AMEN!

  15. Being a veteran, I have been intensely incensed at those overpaid thugs protesting the Flag and National Anthem that I proudly served under! I think goodell should have been fired as commissioner for not taking a strong stand against it, but he is as big a p*ssy as the overpaid ingrates who made the phony display!

  16. These people who protest the National Anthem and decry this country should be glad that they live here and not in some other part of the world. I saw recent films from Hong Kong where sports fans booed and protested during the playing of the Chinese National Anthem. In China the National Anthem is part of the morning exercises at all schools. Also, showing disrespect for the National Anthem in China can get you fined several thousand dollars and/or put in prison for several years or both. So I think that these people should think before they act, because their antics would get them massively fined or imprisoned in many parts of the rest of the world. Maybe this country is not perfect, but we can at least acknowledge our shortcomings without severe judicial penalties.

  17. I remember when the AFL came along to challenge the NFL. Of course, they eventually merged into the NFC/AFC, but they are peas in the same pod. It will be interesting to see if the XFL can make any inroads into the sport, but it’s a long shot. I’m all for it if it works. I’ll be looking for them on TV.

  18. I for 1 think the NFL should have taken similar steps. I know I haven’t watched the NFL since the protests started, & probably never will again.

  19. When the NFL considered that revised Anthem policy 2 yrs ago, they should’ve ignored the SJW noise and passed the policy. Had the protest stunt been done 10, 20 yrs earlier, or even 5 yrs earlier, a new Anthem policy would’ve been enacted in the blink of an eye and there would be few critics.

    I’m hoping this is the decade anti-patriotism dies and patriotism makes a comeback.

  20. Recently Goodell’s wife, former Fox News anchor Jane Skinner was on Fox, talking about the teams and her film documenting the many women who are owners of NFL teams. She neglected to address this kneeling problem, which any true conservative would want to correct.

    All teams should ban kneeling during the Anthem. In my opinion placing your hand over your heart should be a personal choice. Just like Michael Vick, Kaepernick is being treated like he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. And that was after Vick spent at least a year and a half in prison for dog fighting, which included “culling” dogs that couldn’t make the grade.

    Kaepernick seems to think he’s Black, but it is hard to tell under all that “ink”. What a mess.

  21. When Krapernick pulled his stunt of kneeling g to get his starter position back and the NFL refused to stop it I swore to NEVER watch the NFL games after that. If this new league bans such actions then I might watch. I do know they won’t hire Krapernick and the is another good reason to watch them. But only time will tell if things will work out for this new league.

  22. XFL: GO, GO, GO, RAH, RAH, RAH!

    The policy against Anti-American displays is a no-brainer.

    EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD WANT TO PAY HOMAGE AND SHOW RESPECT AND HONOR THE AMERICAN FLAG, THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, THE MILITARY, AND, ANYTHING PATRIOTIC.

    Our nation was founded and protected by courageous men and women.

    Anti-American exhibitionists can do whatever, but they bear the consequences of their unpatriotic actions, including, loss of sponsorships, job loss. (Or better, relocate to another country.)

    Kaepernick exploits his American roots by continuing to reap from America’s police protection, highways, civil safety, public education, etc. He is privileged to be an American, yet callously dishonors the American flag which is the symbol of our nation and military forces throughout the world. Consider moving out of the United States.

  23. I see that they won’t post my post on here …. guess the truth hurts their feelings to . Time to send this Web to the spam page to for not telling the truth about taking the knee
