Entire NFL Football Team Starts Feud With Retired Navy Veteran Over Anthem Protests

The New Orleans Saint are engaged in a public brawl with a retired Navy commander.The team planned to honor him during one of their games, and the veteran publicly rejected their offer.According to the New York Post: “Retired Navy Cmdr.John Wells… was selected by the Saints to receive its Peoples Health Champion Award…” Wells, however, is an old-fashioned patriot.The Saints have been heavy participators in the NFL’s national anthem protest, and Wells is disgusted by their actions.“Although I am touched and honored to be selected for such an award, the ongoing controversy with NFL players’ disrespect for the national flag forces me to decline to participate in the presentation,” Wells said in a statement.“Since this award is tainted with the dishonorable actions of the NFL and its players, I cannot accept it.To do so would be hypocritical.” Wells’ withering refusal quickly went viral.Protesting athletes probably thought that there wouldn’t be any consequences to their weeks-long hissy fit.They’re worth tens of millions of dollars.Their immaturity is usually excused.“We respect his decision, he has that right, and we thank him for his service to our country and his past efforts on behalf of the military and veterans,” the Saints replied in a statement.“Throughout Mr.Wells’ media appearances today, he has stated he no longer supports NFL football… That is unfortunate and disappointing…We will not allow Mr.Wells’ decision and subsequent media appearances to distract our players and organization from continuing to honor and support our military and veterans.” What started as a bizarre, petulant statement on police brutality and the state of black men in America has morphed into something even stranger: a football team VS a Navy veteran.

  1. This is not the way to try to repair what the players have fucked up. But when you are arrogant and unresponsive to fan criticism this is what you get. More outrage from some spoiled millionaires. You will continue to lose players. smh

  2. Bravo Navy! Go Navy!! Boycott the Anti-American Racist NFL!! Boycott their Sponsors NFL Sponsors List 2017: Anheuser-Busch, Barclaycard US, Bose, Bridgestone. Campbell’s Soup Company, Castrol, Courtyard Marriott, Dairy Management, Inc. (Fuel Up to Play 60), Dannon, Extreme Networks, FedEx, Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Hyundai Motor America, Mars Snackfood, Microsoft, Nationwide, News America, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble, Quaker, Verizon, Visa, USAA. Also don't forget to Boycott Flying J and Pilot Fuels as they are owned by one of the Team Owners!! No more tax dollars for the NFL ever again!!Boycott the Racist Anti-American NFL!! I hope they all walk out! Pull all tax payer money from the Anti-American NFL!! No more tax dollars for these Anti-American Scum Bags!

  3. Boycott all these Anti-American NFL clowns. Be sure to include ALL there sponsors who went along with there crap. Lobby to take away all TAX exemption status. Lobby also to never give them Taxpayers money.

  4. Just how stupid are the NFL people? They're losing millions of dollars every week and they still don't understand their audience is pissed. Now they're trash talking a veteran. Wonder whose side the majority of the public is going to take?

  5. These social justice oriented athletes are paid hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to play three hours once per week. They have more than six days per week to promote or protest social issues using their own time and resources. Protesting your nation's anthem on live television isn't accomplishing anything except for pissing off the owners (whether or not they realize it yet), league sponsors, and anyone with a sense of patriotism. If police brutality is what they're protesting, they need to collectively use their millions in their off hours to fund a law firm that specializes in suing brutal cops, not protest the anthem so they can play, go home, beat their wives and girlfriends and do drugs, and repeat weekly. It is a distraction and does nothing to support their cause.

  6. F### you saints players, if you want to follow the piece of shit disrespecting Kap, and his brainless stupid so called protest he started. Have at it morons. But what all you stupid ass knee takers need to think about who is the real man here, this Commander has lead many true AMERICAN men and women. and he never had to take a knee to do so. so ask your selves, you bunch of bozos. keep following Kep, who has done nothing but ruin NFL, players careers, started a massive boycott, that has done nothing. or should you try to understand this honorable Navy Commander who has given everything to our country, get off your knee stand up show the upmost respect.. you dumb ass clowns..THANK YOU COMMANDER FOR YOUR SERVICE.

  7. You know I used to be a saints fan but not anymore, you people have gone to far attacking a veteran for not coming to a place where you are protesting the anthem is just plain stupid.

  8. Why aren't the NFL Players protesting Domestic Violence against Women ???….Players seem to be Major Offenders and kneeling to end it would show personal accountability before dissenting any other issue !!!
