Americans Turning Off Super Bowl in Droves: Bars, Bowling Alleys, Veterans Boycotting

Breitbart – by Warner Todd Huston

More Americans than ever have decided to ignore the NFL’s biggest game by finding other things to do than to tune in and watch Super Bowl LII and most cite the NFL’s refusal to stand to honor the country during the playing of the national anthem as their reason.

Veterans are especially unhappy with the National Football League’s constant indulgence of anti-American protests during the nation’s song. But millions of others are just as upsetat the protests, Fox News reported.  

American Legion and VFW posts are boycotting Super Bowl LII, but so are bars and restaurants across the nation. Even a bowling alley joined the boycotters.

In one case, the Oneota Veterans Club in New York raised a sign to announce their boycott reading, “In honor of our country, our flag, our veterans.”

Indeed, the club had been boycotting the NFL all season but decided to avoid criticism and continue the boycott through the big game.

“The members thought it would be kind of hypocritical if we just brought it back for the Super Bowl to make money,” manager Wayne Gregory told The Daily Star.

Then there is the Knights of Columbus chapter in Longview, Texas, that decided to turn TVs to other shows on Sunday.

“The veterans are especially aggravated by the course of events. This especially hits us as an insult when people are disrespectful of our flag and national anthem,” KC member Vance Lowery told KLTV.

Even a bowing alley decided to skip the league’s championship game, according to the Kalamazoo Gazette.

Ray Steadmon, owner of Coloma Lanes in Coloma in southwestern Michigan, said that even though he is a “huge football fan” he was going to sponsor a Stars and Stripes tournament instead of a Super Bowl party. In fact, it is the first time in 30 years he is not celebrating on Super Bowl Sunday.

“This year when I watch these guys sitting in protest during our national anthem, disrespecting my country, disrespecting my flag, in my opinion, it made me so angry,” Steadmon said explaining the reason for Super Bowl his boycott.

“I had to kind of sit back and say, that’s why I was willing to give my life was to give them the right to do that. The only thing I had to rebuttal with was I have the right not to support (the NFL),” the bowling alley owner exclaimed.

    Imagine how angry he would be if he suddenly discovered that “his country” is NOT the country he thinks it is, but an enemy occupying force and that “his flag” is NOT really his flag, but the Admiralty Occupation Ensign of the same military occupying force.
    In my opinion, like most of the sheep, he would refuse to believe he has been lied to about EVERYTHING he believes to be true, and would kill the messenger, even though there are mounds of evidence to prove the claim. But just think what it would be like if we could somehow snap these rubes out of their slumber! The reason I refer to it as the ‘Stupid Bowl’ is because of the type of mindless devotion those who express interest in it exhibit; just exactly what the bread and circus crowd was like during the days of Rome’s fall.

    Even so, come LORD Jesus.

      Darzak, excellent comment and I agree with your sentiment 100%.

    • Mark Schumacher in LV says:

      I agree as well, great comment Darsak, the idiot bowl is rigged anyway, it’s time had passed, too much of our tax money wasted on stadiums, and all the bullshit that goes along with it.

      It benefits the casinos, and gambling houses, that’s it.

      Amen !!
      And do I ever know the type

    I don’t believe that so many people would alter a life of Sunday football games over these protests alone.

    I think many of them are realizing that there are a lot more urgent and dangerous things happening in this country, and they’re seeing these sporting events for the distractions they are.

    The protests may have been the last straw for a lot of them, but it wouldn’t change a life-long passion for football by itself.

      “The protests may have been the last straw for a lot of them, but it wouldn’t change a life-long passion for football by itself.”

      It would take finding out what I did for that to happen, JR.

      ALL pro sports are fixed… SO WHAT’S THE POINT IN WATCHING?

      Distraction, nothing more.

      • DL. says:

        Yep, and I am glad I finally got over the NFL, which I had followed for over 40 years.

        • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

          Hard-core Charger fan ever since the Dan ‘The Man’ Fouts days, DL. Right up until I woke up… haven’t watched any sports at all since then.

          Hell, quit watching the Idiot Box completely since then, for that matter.

    It wasn’t really the protests that finally made me realize following the NFL was stupid, was a waste of time (and, at 65, I don’t have a lot of time left, eh?), was a distraction I did not need, and following it for over 40 years was utter nonsense. One of the protesting set of players on one particular team clearly and directly insulted their fans (Cuban-Americans…gee which team was that? and it was the team I rooted for as well!), but also the following reasons: 1. I have more important things to do; 2. the NFL has been rigged for years upon years upon years (for instance, isn’t it weird that 9-11 happens, then the team called “patriots” suddenly becomes a dynasty? and isn’t it weird that a team called “eagles” beats the “patriots” in Supe 52 to, among other things make sure Tom Brady won’t retire, for that would really cause an earthquake of drama that Bad-dell couldn’t handle!) 3. Gotta accommodate BLM–in Philly, no less! It’s the PC thing to do (and didn’t Brady support Trump?) 4. Now I can spend more time over the internet doing more important things than commenting on fan blogs 5. save 100 plus dollars a year not buying NFL GamePass, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. As for football, now I only follow the Texas A&M Aggies.

    • Martist says:

      Agreed, DL. The “patriot dynasty” was a great feed into statist nationalism mentality, and now coincidentally has shifted to the “birthplace of America” team. To some it may sound like quite a stretch, but when you factor in all of the other mockingbird/cointelpro/patcon/mk etc crap that is pumped into people’s brains on a daily basis, one can not dismiss it as mere coincidence. “Go team flag, whatever the govt does when it flies it because I’ll follow it to the end as long as they’re waving that carrot on a stick.”

    Play to win hear is how you watching the TV because some else gives you no chose. I don’t watch TV that for starters. Only thing to talk about is the Comersils that keep this shit up and running. Who is paying for it at the cash register. The dirty must be aired name the comercils also 1800 calls to these shit business as the game is being played is fun.

    We need to put away all the BALLS,except the ones in our collective pants. Play time is over boys….
