The new season for the National Football League has just begun and one major stadium is already preparing. Although the league has announced that this coming season will be much different than the disastrous last one after imposing a new rule about kneeling, fans feel that it’s too late and are taking matters into their own hands to send a bold message.
If the unprecedented NFL boycott last season didn’t send disrespectful players a big enough message, then this warning sign that just went up probably will. Fans in Green Bay, Wisconsin are passionate about their Packers and the sport but many gave up their support after kneeling took over the game and went unpunished by top NFL executives. They’re hoping for something different this season, but aren’t taking any chances.
An impressive banner was created to get the blunt message out early and has just gone up right across the street from Lambeau Field in Green Bay along a home’s private fence that faces the stadium.
The warning is clear and simple and well-played with the play on how “pack” was used for Packers. The proud American(s) who put this up love their country more than their team and will pick respecting the flag over players any day. The message is also a reference to President Trump’s suggestion about kicking players out of America for disrespecting the country on the field.
Packers fans have a team they can be proud of which starts with their incredible coach who ensured his players aren’t like others in the league. They hope it stays that way, which is why the warning sign went up, considering that there will be some new players on the team this coming season. However, Coach Mike McCarthy isn’t going to let it slide any more than Packers fans.
Green Bay Packers and Coach Mike McCarthy has a much different approach to these disgusting protests than others in the league.
McCarthy doesn’t seem to agree with the Commissioner’s original apologetic approach and has something else planned for these anti-American stars who think they are going to get away with protesting on his field. They are paid millions to play a game – not make negative political statements.
Mike McCarthy doesn’t know if anyone on his sideline will join the ranks of NFL players using the national anthem as an opportunity to protest.
But if they do, the Green Bay Packers coach can say this for certain: They will do so with a knowledge of the history of the anthem and an understanding of how important he believes it is.
Last season, the coach was asked what he expects from his team when the anthem is played before each game. Rather than giving a politically correct answer of everyone having a right to free speech and to express how they somehow feel oppressed while making millions playing a game, he explained that he expects patriotism and good sportsmanship.
More importantly, McCarthy has taken it upon himself to educate his players on why we stand for the anthem since ignorance is why most of the idiotic athletes are sitting or kneeling on the sidelines. He’s putting knowledge of the real history of this nation on the field to stop players from making fools of themselves with protests.
When entitled, disrespectful players from other teams show up to his field, they are going to see what real men who respect this nation look like. In turn, those sitting out will look stupid in the shadows of the heroes standing for the anthem.
McCarthy said he addresses the anthem and his expectation of proper decorum during it with the players via a preseason presentation.
“It’s something that I’ve done each and every year here since I’ve been the head coach,” McCarthy said. “We have a PowerPoint presentation that you update (each year), and you always try to deliver the message clearly to the team.
“Our approach has always been to give the history and the understanding of what the national anthem means, and why it’s played before any National Football League game, particularly how (the tradition) started after World War II. I go through the whole history and the importance of what it means to you personally.”
This is the exact stance that every coach of every team should take since the NFL Commissioner refused to prioritize patriotism over the sport.
The Dallas Cowboys head coach, Jason Garrett, recently came out with the same stance as McCarthy, saying that the National Anthem is “sacred” and he expects his team to stand.
The Packers coach recognizes that the problem most of the players have is that they don’t understand what they think they are protesting by sitting out the anthem. That not only makes the player look stupid but is an embarrassment to the entire team and the NFL.
It’s nice to see two teams with their priorities straight and it’s a shame that so many other coaches and players in the NFL have tainted the reputation of the sport, leading to many spectators boycotting the season. Other teams should take note and run their operation like McCarthy and Garrett – with respect and honor for our flag and freedom and the real heroes who gave their life defending both.

Tom Brady Yells ‘Reagan, Reagan!’ During Super Bowl And The Responses Are Hilarious
In one of the coolest moments in football history (as far as I’m concerned), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an unusual call during a play last night during the Super Bowl. Brady stepped to the line of scrimmage during the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday night, took one look at how the Los Angeles Rams’ defense was squared up and decided to change the play right then and there. And it set social media on fire all over again.
Brady could clearly be heard on a microphone invoking the name of President Ronald Reagan. “Reagan! Reagan!” Brady yelled. I was already rooting for the Pats but they won my heart forever right then and there. How insanely cool is that? After the snap, he handed off the football to running back Sony Michel, who ran toward the right for a 4-yard gain, SB Nation reported.
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo commented that Brady’s call must have meant “run to the right.” And just like that, the New England Patriots became the official team of the Republican Party. President Trump is loved by Brady and Belichick, as well as others on the team. It would seem that Reagan is held dear as well.
You gotta love the Pats trolling the left in the Super Bowl. Epic. The blue checkmark crowd on Twitter came unglued after this on both the right and the left. Good times.
- “I love it,” one Twitter user noted. “Tom Brady shouted Reagan Reagan, and then they ran to the right. I officially love Tom Brady, and the Patriots are officially the team of the Republican Party.”
- “Tom Brady just called ‘Reagan Reagan,’ which according to Tony Romo means run to the right,” another added. “I now concede that Tom Brady is the GOAT.”
- “CNN Breaking News: Tom Brady yells Reagan Reagan before play. 12-person panel has been assembled to discuss Brady’s clear racism,” another joked.
“Of course Reagan means run to the RIGHT”
— PARIS (@PARISDENNARD) February 4, 2019
Liberals, however, were not amused:
- “Y’all still hype up Tom Brady as if he isn’t a racist trump lover???” one Twitter user asked. “Did y’all not hear the Reagan thing either??? Or are we choosing to ignore those things???”
- “OF COURSE Tom Brady would have an audible named after Ronald Reagan,” another noted. “God I hate Tom Brady.”
- “Ronald Reagan and Tom Brady are both pieces of s**t,” yet another succinctly put it.
Tom Brady calling out “Reagan” as a play name is so politically fraught.
— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) February 4, 2019
The Conservative Tribune posited a very believable reason for the call:
“Third, the Patriots have often been known to thumb their noses at decorum and have no problem running a score up or rubbing their opponents’ faces in the dirt to send a message. It would not be a stretch at all to consider “Reagan” an overtly intentional play call given how much flak Brady, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and team owner Robert Kraft have gotten from the left about their association and friendship with Trump.”
The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl 13 to 3 much to the horror of leftists across the nation. It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history. Corbin Smith of The Daily Beast who wrote that the Patriots are “the preferred team of white nationalists,” must have stroked out over it.
This is Brady’s unprecedented sixth NFL championship. And Reagan lives on. Go Pats!
Tom Brady just yelled “REAGAN!” To call an audible. I assume that’s where the tight end goes in motion and “Trickles down” the side line
Thanks everybody you’ve been a great crowd

Daily Beast: Patriots Are ‘Preferred Team Of White Nationalists’
The Daily Beast’s author Corbin Smith really went off on the New England Patriots before the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for him, the Pats won. In a very weird, racist screed that just oozed anger and hatred, Smith called the Patriots fans Team MAGA,” the living manifestation of “MAGA scum,” and, perhaps most stunning of all, “the preferred team of white nationalists.” He also called Boston a racist city for what it is worth. Boston is no such thing and neither are the Patriots.
Smith said that Patriots fans were complicit in the white nationalism and he really went after Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick, and the team owner Robert Kraft. He calls them all “supporters” of President Trump. Smith referred to Brady as “unnerving” because at a rally he led a chant of “we’re still here.” Smith claims Brady is a “square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.”
Their star quarterback, coach, and owner all supported Trump. But that’s not the only thing that makes the Patriots the preferred team of white nationalists https://t.co/C1KnQNXa9b
— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) February 3, 2019
“This past weekend, the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots held a rally for their sweatiest fans at Gillette Stadium. Brady gave a speech. It ended… unnervingly.
Brady leads a “We’re still here” chant then flings the mic.
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) January 27, 2019
“WE’RE STILL HERE! WE’RE STILL HERE! Obviously, Brady is referring to his aging, decrepit, cheating-ass squad’s progression to the big game. But, imagine you didn’t know anything about football, or who Tom Brady was, or anything like that. You would think that you were watching some square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.
“Of course, even if you do know stuff about Brady you may still think he’s on his way to pursuing this line of grifting. He flashed a red MAGA hat, an accouterment that is gaining more and more traction as a symbol of white nationalism in America, in his locker back in the primary days. He wasn’t the only one! Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick wrote a goddamn letter to Trump right before the end of the campaign that basically amounted to an endorsement, that Trump then read on stage. And Pats’ owner Robert Kraft is also his pal, and was even shouted out at Trump’s pre-Inauguration dinner in D.C. for his most deep-pocketed donors.”
This passes for “journalism”? Who at the Daily Beast would let this appear? The media truly doesn’t understand how it continues to undermine itself. https://t.co/gYfoQT21CZ

This was another part of Smith’s twisted argument:
“The whole institution of Boston sports, from root to stem, is tinged with the sort of racism that brought Trump into office. The Boston Red Sox were the last MLB team to desegregate, more than a decade after Jackie Robinson entered the league. The Sox’s first owner, Tom Yawkey, was an infamous racist whose speech was peppered with racial slurs. Larry Bird became a symbol of white resentment during his time in the NBA, his jersey appearing as a symbol of white entitlement to black spaces in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. His large teammate, Kevin McHale, was spotted at a Trump rally during the election.
“Look, it doesn’t matter if the Patriots like it or not, they are the official team of American White Nationalism, the MAGA Boys On the Field. You can’t implicitly or explicitly support Trump, who reads speeches written by Stephen Miller as a matter of course, play in a market whose sporting culture is renowned for its racism, have a decade-plus organizational obsession with undersized white receivers, and be called, no shit, the Patriots, without getting the vile Fox News Soup that poisoned half the country on your shirt. Try to put on a bib of distancing yourself, deflecting questions, telling everyone your wife told you to stop talking about it, that shit isn’t gonna work. You’re the MAGA Kid. It’s on you forever. It stalks and haunts you.
“When you root for the Patriots, you are associating yourself with a virulent and revolting strain of politics that seeks to Make America Great Again—which is to say, white, European, English-speaking. And look, I understand if you’ve been rooting for Boston teams your whole life. Fandom is a hard drug to quit. But please, look at yourself, look at who these guys put out for, and reconsider. Think about if you would want to find yourself in a crowd of sweaty, white men chanting WE’RE STILL HERE while a Trump supporter egged you on. Are you one-hundred percent sure you’re comfortable with that?”
“But why do more and more normal Americans dislike the hard working, selfless, daring firefighters of democracy known as journalists?” they asked, without irony https://t.co/fX4bs0bDJx

It was one of the most bizarre pieces I have ever read, even for The Daily Beast. Anyone who even remotely supports Trump is evidently a racist in his eyes. A MAGA hat seen with Brady is surely what set this guy off originally back in 2015. Brady may have been friends and a golfing buddy to Trump but he has never publically supported him.
Belichick wrote a “letter” to Trump that Trump often refers to in his campaign speeches. Kraft donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration committee and got a “shout out” from Trump at the event. Kraft and Trump have since parted ways over a difference of opinion over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem.
Why, are they also supported by the Virginia Democratic Party or something? https://t.co/7OlKJ2lbWM

Social media tore Smith to shreds as they should have over this silliness. When President Trump wins a second term, look for this guy to accuse the entire nation of racism and white nationalism. He’s unhinged and needs help. But then, this is The Daily Beast we are speaking of.
