People are still angry at the NFL, but they’re running out of creative ways to protest (see Ford Supports NFL’s Anthem Protest? This Police Department Stopped Supporting Ford… and High School Football Team Puts NFL to Shame! Honors Police at Homecoming Game…).
I don’t know how many more invites I can get to various “I HATE THE NFL KNEELERS, ONE LIKE EQUALS ONE BOYCOTT” Facebook pages. But this former Jacksonville Jaguars fan has really raised the bar with this stunt.
At 1,000 feet, you could read the statement on the plane-towed banner saying, “Be American. Boycott the Jags and the NFL.”
Terry Smiley had the message printed on a banner that was flown above EverBank Field before the Jacksonville Jaguars’ game against the Los Angeles Rams.
This all-American sport is dividing fans after some FL players took a knee during the national anthem.
“I am asking people to boycott the football games. I don’t watch it on TV,” Smiley said.
I mean, sure, if you’re upset people are disrespecting the troops by kneeling, spending the money on a banner may have been better spent on a military charity.
But still, game respects game. And if you’re a fan who feels betrayed, why not raise your message high.
