NFL Bans Live On-Field Performances Of The National Anthem

The National Football League Will Not Be Allowing Live Performers Of The National Anthem On The Field Before NFL Games During The 2020 Season

The NFL has decided that they will not allow pregame performances to take place, using COVID-19 as political cover for the decision. While the “Star Spangled Banner” may still be played before games if stadiums so choose, it will not be done on the field. If the home team wishes to use a live performer, they must be filmed from a location off the field.

Military and honor guards will likely be limited.

The NFL is claiming that decision comes as a means to minimize the spread of COVID-19 by preventing unnecessary bodies from entering the field of play, but the timely decision in the wake of the ongoing George Floyd riots raises the question of whether that is really true. The NFL has already committed to playing the so-called “black national anthem” before week 1 games, so keep an eye out: there will likely be live performers involved for renditions of “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing” while the real National Anthem is pushed out of the spotlight.

In all likelihood, unAmerican company men in the NFL decided this was the easiest way to avoid outlandish protests from their players and limit the amount of controversy in the process.

More from Barrett Sports Media:

Any NFL broadcast partners trying to figure out to handle the national anthem and any player protests related to it may have just been gifted a solution by the league.

The NFL will not allow the “Star Spangled Banner” to be performed live on the field this season. It will still be played before games, but the NFL is doing away with live performances in an effort to limit the number of people on the field during the Covid-19 Pandemic. That means that there will likely be fewer military and police honor guards involved in pre-game festivities this year too.

Famous Black Celebrities Targeting Jewish People In Latest ‘Social Justice’ Trend Backed By The Nation Of Islam

Just Weeks After Nick Cannon Made Anti-White And Anti-Jewish Remarks, Other Black Celebrities Have Begun Joining In With Their Own Commentary In Support Of The Nation Of Islam

Some black celebrities have chosen to take an interesting path forward as they continue their social justice role playing while riding in limousines and living in mansions. Their newest course of action is to target Jewish people and are seemingly influenced by the teachings of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

These comments follow in the wake of the Nick Cannon scandal, and while much of the mainstream media has chose to focus on Cannon’s remarks about Jewish people, few have bothered to hone in on his comments about White Americans who he called “savages” and “closer to animals.”

Rapper Jay Electronica Posts That Jews Are Members Of The ‘Synagogue Of Satan’, Calls Out ADL, Demands Rabbi Debate Louis Farrakhan

Most recently, rapper Jay Electronica has weighed in on the Nick Cannon saga, claiming that Cannon has been tricked into apologizing for his earlier comments about Whites and Jews, and that the rabbi who Cannon recently interviewed with should debate the leader of the Nation of Islam.

Nick Cannon’s Anti-White And Anti-Jewish Remarks

On Veteran’s Day, the NFL deceived viewers about how much they plan to donate to veterans…

After reaching $5.9 million, and receiving some angry Tweets from me, the NFL finally shut off their counter.

Have you heard about the NFL’s “Salute to Service” campaign? Well, after the fallout  from the un-American kneelers last year, the NFL took pains to promote their annual veteran’s day fundraiser. Unfortunately, this year’s fundraiser is a bit too good to be true and the NFL isn’t playing an honest hand either.

The Salute to Service campaign alleges that for every Tweet on Twitter using the hashtag #SaluteToService, the NFL will donate $25.00 on November 11th.

The reality is that they have already reached their maximum donation limit and not a penny more will be donated to charities that support troops that have returned home. On their website, you’ll notice that the maximum donation is listed in fine print and can be found in the terms of the promotion as well.

Now, this wouldn’t be such a big deal if it were not for one additional problem:

The NFL is pretending to donate more than $5 million. Right now, their website is displaying a donation tracker that continues to rise and is approaching the $5.5 million mark.

Now, the NFL doesn’t have to donate to veterans and it’s certainly admirable for them to send $5 million to these charities. The problem is their official donation tracker is continuing to tabulate Tweets that will never result in additional donations. In effect, the NFL is claiming to donate well over the amount they will eventually pay out to their partnered charities.

The donation tracker continues to rise but not a penny over $5 million will ever reach veterans.

By the end of the day, the NFL website might appear to show $7 million or even $10 million. But that number just won’t reflect reality. What it will do is place in the minds of gullible Americans that NFL really, really, cares about the troops. But with this sort of sleight of hand, it’s hard to imagine that this stunt is anything other than a PR move in their eyes.

Oh, and of course the NFL is known for charging the Department of Defense for letting troops take part in halftime shows:

For years the NFL took millions from the armed forces for fake patriotic overtures. That’s right, the NFL made the Department of Defense fork over money in exchange for the league honoring active-duty military and veterans at games. Here’s an article from Scout documenting many of the payments to NFL teams:

“The Department of Defense offers a breakdown (below) of payments since 2011. Teams that received taxpayer funds include the Baltimore Ravens ($799,000), Cincinnati Bengals ($138,960) Cleveland Browns ($22,500), the Green Bay Packers ($600,000), Pittsburg Steelers, ($36,000) Minnesota Vikings ($605,000), Atlanta Falcons ($1,049,500) Indianapolis Colts ($620,000), Buffalo Bills ($679,000), Dallas Cowboys ($62,500), Miami Dolphins ($20,000), Kansas City Chiefs ($250,000), St. Louis Rams ($60,000), and the afore-mentioned Jets.”

So on this sacred day that honors American heroes for their willingness to sacrifice, don’t use the NFL’s hollow hashtag.

Speak your mind, support active-duty personnel and veterans to your fullest, but don’t give the NFL any more credit.

There’s only one reason to keep that counter running past $5 million: it’s great PR. The NFL doesn’t deserve that. 

Tweet at Roger Goodell (@nflcommish) to ask him why he’s taking credit for a larger donation than the NFL partner charities will actually receiver.

And in the time it took to write this article, the counter has inched quite close to $6 million.

Just one more thing…
