Yes, I say these NFL players are stupid because fans just want to see football, not politics! 
If these athletes don't feel fulfilled by playing in the NFL, quit the sport and go join Al Sharpton and go on a march somewhere.   

The Root reports three current players and one recent retiree have asked the NFL for a dedicated month devoted to social activism.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Torrey Smith, and former Arizona Cardinals wideout Anquan Boldin sent a memo to the league in August requesting that the league observe November as social-activism month, “similarly to what the league already implements for breast cancer awareness, honoring military, etc.”

The memo came after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly talked with several players regarding their game-day activism efforts, ESPN reports.

  1. The players have a right to their opinion, but I also have a right to mine and until they start showing some respect to the flag I served, I will not attend, watch, or support them in any way. I have also killed my fantasy team
