Last year marked the 15th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

When players wanted to wear commemorative cleats (shoes) like the ones above, or place decals on their helmets, they were told by the NFL that they would be fined if they did.

When the Dallas Cowboys asked to wear decals on their helmets in honor of the 5 Dallas Police Officers slain by a sniper, they too, were denied and told they would be fined if they did.

Behind those decisions was one Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL.

However, when Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem, Goodell rushed all over himself to support the quarterback’s right to free speech.

As a liberty-loving American, I agree with Goodell’s decision to let Kaepernick and other players sit. Let the free market decide if they want controversial players on their teams. As it turns out, the free market did decide and Kaepernick is a man without a team today because no team wants the controversy. (I wonder how many more players will be without teams after this season…)

However, I digress.

The NFL’s decision to support anti-cop protests by players after refusing to allow players to support those same police officers, or to memorialize first responders from the worst day in modern American history, September 11, 2001, it has outed itself as a purveyor of hypocrisy.

It’s time to boycott the NFL until Goodell steps down and the NFL introduces equitable treatment of speech amongst its players.

Until then, I won’t be watching.

And from a friend on social media who wishes to remain anonymous:

Never forget that the same NFL that supports “individual freedom of expression” for their players refused to allow Tim Tebow to kneel in prayer or the Dallas Cowboys to wear a tiny helmet sticker honoring five slain police officers.
