The American patriots are standing for what they believe.
Boycott the NFL is a Facebook page created by patriots, and has more than 50,000 people following it, they are calling for a boycott on November 12-13, which is the Veterans Day weekend.
“We will be not be watching or listening to NFL games on November 12 in solidarity with veterans around the country, as football players have continued to disrespect the national anthem, the American flag and everything our nation stands for,” it is written on the page.
They are expecting to gather 100,000 members by the Nov 11th.
Gold Star mother Rose Warnsing stands with them.
“I refuse to watch or spend any of my money supporting a bunch of prima donna millionaires that dance on my son’s grave,” she said.
“My son, along with thousands upon thousands, have truly sacrificed all so these boys could play a game in the greatest country of them all. I support the right to protest but not their disrespect for the country my son gave his all for.”
Well-known veterans’ organizations are constantly criticizing the NFL players who disrespect our national anthem.
“There is a time and place for civil debate, and wearing team jerseys and using sporting events to disrespect our country doesn’t wash with millions of military veterans who have and continue to wear real uniforms on real battlefields around the globe,” said Vietnam veteran Keith Harman, a who heads the 1.7 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars.
“I stand for our flag and anthem, and I kneel for our fallen. That’s what patriots do,” he said.
“That flag is more than just a symbol of our nation; it means all that’s right about our country,” said VFW spokesperson Joe Davis. “And the disrespect that anyone, not just sports people, show toward the flag, which goes hand in hand with the national anthem, is something other veterans don’t tolerate.”
Denise Rohan, the American Legion Commander, said the players were “misguided and ungrateful.”
“There are many ways to protest, but the national anthem should be our moment to stand together as one United States of America,” she said. “Having a right to do something does not make it the right thing to do.”

Dear NFL: We will not support millionaire ingrates who hate America and disrespect our Armed Forces and Veterans. Who wins a football game has ZERO impact on our lives. Who fights for and defends our nation has every impact on our lives. We stand with the Heroes, not a bunch of rich, entitled, arrogant, ungrateful, anti-American, degenerates. Signed, we the people.
