A Green Bay Packers shareholder is “f**king livid” over the national anthem protests in the NFL and is threatening to leave the game behind.
The Packers are the only community-owned franchise in the NFL, which technically makes a shareholder an owner, even it this individual falls short of elitist billionaire owners in the league.

The owner in question spoke to The Daily Caller on background, with his name being withheld.
“I am f**king livid right now,” he said over the phone. “I see this sh*t and I lose my mind. It needs to end immediately.”

The individual is angry enough to walk away from football.
“I’ll give up football completely and find something else to do with my time if this continues,” he said. “This horse sh*t must end.”
NFL players earning millions are protesting perceived racism and police brutality, based on what is said to be an “epidemic” of police shootings of unarmed black men, although facts do not necessarily support that narrative.
Never mind that the players are officially “on the clock” as employees when they choose to protest.
“These players are so out of touch,” the Packers shareholder told The Daily Caller. “They disrespect our flag and then wonder why Trump won. It’s a no-brainer. This is so disrespectful.”

And if it doesn’t come to a stop, he doesn’t see this turning out well for the NFL.
“People will run to college football over the NFL in droves if these protests continue,” the owner concluded.
