Yesterday there were pictures all over the Internet of NFL stadiums around the country with thousands of empty seats. Even teams like Atlanta and the New York Jets with normally very loyal fan bases are showing the effects of the anger of Americans over the disrespect toward the flag and the national anthem.
In New Orleans Saints fans were infuriated when several players refused to stand for a moment of silence to honor a New Orleans police officer who had been killed in the line of duty just a few days before. The NFL team owners are supposed to be meeting this week to discuss the issues, but based on their previous actions, there will be little real action taken.
