Red Pilled World

"The red pill represents embracing the painful truth of reality, and rejecting the blissful ignorance of illusion fed to us by the mainstream media."

NFL's history on 'free speech'.

The following column was written by Robert Jackson and it sums up the hypocrisy of the NFL perfectly:

NFL's hypocrisy exposed.
* In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray; they also had an issue with Tebow wearing the phrase John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare, and made him take it off.

* In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

* In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference that wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

* In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure" eye black for breast cancer awareness.

* In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem...)

* In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of five Dallas police officers killed in the line of duty.

* In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression all of a sudden.

NFL players have freedom of speech in their personal lives, but the NFL has never previously extended that right to the playing field. The NFL is currently choosing to be political and, with dwindling attendances and dwindling viewing figures, they are reaping the consequences.
