When a football player, quarterbacks and kickers exempted, steps on the field, he is expected play the game. That is to hit and get hit. The NFL used to have players who could and did.

Likewise when a political fool like Colin Kaepernick attempts to use a spectator sport as a political football, they should expect to get political hits back. President Donald Trump just used Kaepernick and his fellow fools as a tackling dummy. Not that Kaepernick knows what tackling is, from Puffington Post:

National Football League stars past and present are expressing outrage after President Donald Trump used an address in Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday to attack players who protest during the national anthem.

During what was supposed to be a stump speech for Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), Trump drifted away from campaigning to ask members of the crowd if they’d “love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired’?”

He also encouraged fans to boycott the league over the protests.

Trump did not reference by name San Francisco 49ers former player Colin Kaepernick, who took a knee during the national anthem before games last year to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

In large part NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, minions, play in taxpayer funded stadiums, have no loyalty to the hard working home town fans that pay their salaries, and commit enough crimes to fill a season of Law & Order.  If the NFL, and her players, want to play politics, they better suck up their game.  Little Donny did not start the NFL temper tantrum.  He might finish it.
