Green Bay fans … the NFL and the Green Bay Packers do not care about you. They care about their players. They care about money … their prestige … their ownership of their Packer fans.
They care about filling the seats, high ratings, and Championships. They do not care about the person who is the fan, nor do they care about this flag or country. (In my opinion.)
The owners and coaches care about players who have been pushed through schools and colleges, without knowing how to read a book, let alone read our U.S Constitution … and … that disrespect our soldiers, our flag and our country. The players are their precious commodity … until, they aren’t.
Aaron Rodgers is calling for Packer fans to … show up (uppermost in his mind) … and link arms in solidarity for the players (who disrespect our flag) … not… in solidarity for our flag, Anthem, country and soldiers. His plea to the public is:
“This is about equality,” (Rodgers said.) “This is about unity and love and growing together as a society, and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people. But we’ve got to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity.” (excerpt from USA Today)
My response to Aaron Rodgers (I was a huge fan, at one time) is … that our flag is about unity, love and our solidarity … as a country. How small Rodger’s request is, in comparison.
To be clear … this is my opinion. Instead of kneeling outside the door on the Green Bay locker room, I will express here, in my blog.
I will not be watching the game tonight. In my opinion, this “plea for solidarity,” is simply a ploy to get people in their stadium seats … and, in front of the cameras; and, to get their failing ratings back up. I am not going to participate in that.
The Green Bay Packers … to my knowledge, at this writing … are the only publicly owned football team. That means there is a high percentage of the Green Bay Packer fans who own stock in the Packer’s team.
It is my hope … given the blatant disrespect of this team … that the stock-owning fans will not show up tonight.
As for me … I’m putting all my stock into my flag, my country, and our brave soldiers.
