Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully is one of the rare admired people in sports. Scully is an icon for 67 years now.
So, when he has something to say people always listen.
As NFL players continue to kneel during the national anthem and disrespect American values, Vin Scully made an announcement that he will never watch NFL games again.
Talking about the anthem protests at a speaking event in Pasadena, Scully said he will “never watch another NFL game” because of his “respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war.” Scully retired last fall as Dodgers team announcer after 67 years.
“I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday,” he said at the event. “It’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year, didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.”
The NFL hasn’t come up with a solution on how to deal with the protests and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is under a lot of attacks for failing to address the issue.
And it seems like he will be facing some serious questions regarding his job.
Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones is pushing to not renewing his contract.
Colin Kaepernick also filed a complaint against Goodell and the owners and is asking for phone records to prove there is a collision against him
President Trump also condemned the NFL players who opted to kneel during the anthem and disrespect the flag by saying they should be fired and that “kneeling is not acceptable.”
The baseball, sadly, has only one player who has decided to kneel, Bruce Maxwell. And he is too busy handling the gun charge after pointing a gun at food delivery man.
