NFL players have proven over the past few weeks that they are either uneducated in the way things work or they simply are too arrogant to care.
I’m not sure if they’ve ever heard the phrase, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”
Fans are ditching their game day tickets and contacting DirecTV to receive their refunds on their sports packages, NFL players have got to stop and think about what they’re doing.
Tennessee Titans, Delanie Walker is currently on a two-year contract with the Titans. This contract is paying him $13,375,000… yes, you read that correctly.
This massive paycheck includes a “signing bonus,” a “roster bonus,” a “workout bonus,” as well as many more incentives. So, this guy is the epitome of a self-entitled, over-payed athlete who would have been better off not opening his big mouth and turning off even more fans.
NBC Sports reported:
“And the fans that don’t want to come to the game? I mean, OK. Bye. I mean, if you feel that’s something, we’re disrespecting you, don’t come to the game. You don’t have to. No one’s telling you to come to the game. It’s your freedom of choice to do that.”
The Titans were among three teams that skipped the national anthem Sunday after President Donald Trump’s tweets. The President has predicted a backlash against the NFL in the wake of the protests, which included dozens of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem in Week 3.
“That’s their choice [not to watch],” cornerback Logan Ryan said. “That’s the beauty of this country. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and everyone’s opinion is equal. So right, wrong or indifferent, that’s the beauty of this country — that everyone should have equal rights and equal opinions on what they want. If they don’t want to watch, that’s their choice. That’s perfect.”
The Titans, per Wolf, have not decided how to handle the national anthem this week.
So, basically what Walker is saying to all Americans is that he doesn’t give a crap if we watch the games, buy tickets, or hate the NFL all together. Uh… I don’t think Walker quite understands how his contract is funded. Our money is paying for him to play football, so without our money he has nothing. Hopefully, NFL players will start to think before they keep opening their mouths and offending all of America.
