‘Boycott NFL’ sweeps internet because if ungrateful players can sit-out anthem, fans can sit-out games

The American public has had enough of the NFL sitting idly by.

Thursday night Denver Broncos player Brandon Marshall became the latest player to take knee during the anthem, and the first of the regular season. His protest came only hours after Seattle Seahawks players threatened a team-wide protest for their game on Sept. 11.

Those incidences were the end of the line for many, and the hashtag #BoycottNFL began trending on social media where it remained on Twitter’s top 10 trending topics Friday.
