In result of the NFL protests that shook the league over this past year, many fans as well as people related with the league were forced to boycott the games in order to influence the ending of this disgraceful trend. It affected the ratings and popularity of the NFL and left a stain on the American football as a sport, with it being politicized and abused for purposes of promoting a certain political stand on things.
As usanewsflash informs, following the many outraged fans, sponsors and coaches, two referees expressed their take on the matter and walked out the Monroe High School game in New Jersey on Friday in order to show their disapproval of the deviant trend of disrespecting our national symbols.
One of the referees (Ernie Lunardelli, the father of the other ref.- Anthony Lunardelli) gave a statement after the game, in which he clarified he informed the league’s assigner of games about his intention to take such measures, in case another protest takes place on the field:
“I’m not in favor of anyone disrespecting our country, our flag, the armed forces,” adding, What they’re protesting has nothing to do with the national anthem and I’m against it, so I decided to protest for them kneeling and that’s what I did.”
“Whoever is disrespecting that flag and the national anthem, that’s who I have a problem with. That’s my protest. I don’t care if it’s a baby, if it’s an 80-year-old man, anybody,” before further explaining, “I don’t care. Any race, color, I don’t care who it is. It’s not the way I was brought up and it pisses me off that people are doing that.”
Adding something that would most certainly earn him some negative points with liberals, he went on to say: “If you’re not happy with being in America, go somewhere else. It’s that simple.”
This is a move on the referees’ behalf that should deserves a greeting, for they risk their jobs only to express their dissatisfaction with the ones who are ungratefully disrespecting our national symbols.
