The National Football League (NFL) just announced an abrupt shutdown and America is stunned. Millions of people across the country want to know what is going to happen next. This is unbelievable.
“The NFL has advised their players and staff to keep away from large crowds, so they don’t contract the coronavirus,” reported Breitbart News. “However, one crowded area the league will not try to keep them away from is the voting booth.”
According to Breitbart, the NFL is closing down all facilities on November 3 “to ensure that every member of the NFL family has an opportunity to exercise the precious right to vote.” Whatever happened to that “social distancing” thing?
One would think that if members of the NFL can go vote in person, there is no reason for extreme measures in stadiums. But in the new ‘woke’ NFL, nothing seems to make much sense anymore — all we can do is shake our heads.
On top of this contradiction, the league has another political problem: the current momentum behind BLM has turned former 49ers quarterback into a hero and, as such, protesting during the National Anthem is an accepted activity.
But most Americans want nothing to do with an NFL that has abandoned commonsense and patriotism. Once the 2020 season kicks off in a few short days, we will see whether fans tune in or tune out.
