Supporters of the boycott weighed in on the Facebook page.

“I refuse to participate in an event that disrespects the United States of America. I despise anyone who disrespects those that have fought and those that gave their lives for our freedom. Keep taking a knee NFL and you will lose what fans you have left,” one Facebook user commented.

“Enough is enough. Politics and sports do not mix. This is a reminder of the Olympics boycotts in the 70’s. Not the proper forum for protests. Fans cannot relate to million dollar cry babies. Get back to the work of entertainment,” another wrote.

Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who ignited a firestorm when he refused to stand during the national anthem in a 2016 pre-season game, remains a free agent as no other teams have signed him. The NFL has been repeatedly thrust in the spotlight as players have continued to protest while many fans fire back at the disrespect.

Declining ratings and ticket sales have been affecting the league and its bottom line as sponsors like the Papa John’s pizza company have demanded the NFL get its house in order.

On Twitter, the calls to boycott the NFL over the Veterans day weekend were loud and clear.
