The "non-4 profit" NFL needs to put a stop to the "in-your-face" personal messaging occurring on the sidelines!
While I feel it is disrespectful to the men & women whom fight for the very freedoms that they are expressing, the fact is it is against your very own rules!
Rule 5 (Article 8)
“Throughout the period on game-day that a player is visible to the stadium and television audience (including in pregame warm-ups, in the bench area, and during postgame interviews in the locker room or on the field), players are prohibited from wearing, displaying, or otherwise conveying personal messages either in writing or illustration, unless such message has been approved in advance by the League office. Items to celebrate anniversaries or memorable events, or to honor or commemorate individuals, such as helmet decals, and arm bands and jersey patches on players’ uniforms, are prohibited unless approved in advance by the League office. All such items approved by the League office, if any, must relate to team or League events or personages. The League will not grant permission for any club or player to wear, display, or otherwise convey messages, through helmet decals, arm bands, jersey patches, or other items affixed to game uniforms or equipment, which relate to political activities or causes, other non-football events, causes or campaigns, or charitable causes or campaigns. Further, any such approved items must be modest in size, tasteful, non-commercial, and noncontroversial; must not be worn for more than one football season; and if approved for use by a specific team, must not be worn by players on other teams in the League.”
Let those that have a message to share, do it on their personal time and let us enjoy the game that they are paid quite well to play!

Please take a stand with me and many former viewers and TURN IT OFF!!!
