Former NFL star Burgess Owens says the league’s steep ratings fall was because the NFL’s brand is now focused “on anti-Americanism and thuggery.”
“They are gonna have to decide where their brand is gonna go,” he told Fox & Friends on Sunday. “(And) as American people we will decide whether to turn them on or off based on how we feel about how they feel about our country.”
The hosts cited a recent poll that showed the National Anthem protests, led by Colin Kaepernick, were at the top of the reasons why the league suffered low ratings last season.
“This is what the left does. They use the black community every single election cycle to get elected,” he said. “Every single election cycle they get the anti-American sentiment, the anti-flag, anti-police, anti-white. And it’s all to do one thing. Get white and black socialist liberal elitists elected.”
“We’re fighting against an ideology of liberalism, socialism, and Marxism,” he added.
We need to stand strong because the American way has always been the way that our country has thrived and come together,” he said.
Burgess, who wrote the book “Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps,” said he believes this year in the NFL he expects “no demonstrations. They’re going to be focused on football because that’s what America wants.
