SOURE : https://goo.gl/Qqcrq1 ALERT: NFL Gets Devastating BlowAfter the national anthem protests last week, fans were quick to reveal their reactions.Yet instead of the mass support many players were likely expecting, the NFL is receiving massive backlash. According to Breitbart, a Yahoo finance poll revealed that 80 percent of those expected to change their behavior from the protests said they planned to watch less football.The players’ reasons for protesting the national anthem vary, according to USA Today. It seems the demonstrations largely revolved around three main points: opposing Trump, unity, and calling awareness to racial injustice.Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks made all three of these points in a video, concluding by saying the protests were primarily about racial injustice. “I think that it’s more powerful if each individual owner comes out and has something to say about this, but we are all together, we are all Americans, and it’s time for the racism and bigotry, for those things to go away. Those things have no place in society, no place in America, no place in any country, and that’s my two cents.”Many liberals likely felt that fans would support the players who chose to disrespect the national anthem. And that they would also believe the widespread claims that last weekend’s protests were really about the supposed racial injustice in America and not a petty demonstration opposing the President.Yet the polls tell a different story. Many fans — at least 62 percent of those surveyed — were offended by the protests enough to consider turning off their TVs and stop watching the NFL altogether.
