Ret.  Marine  Col.  Jeffery  Powers  wrote  to  the  NFL  commissioners  the  following:



I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and the Giants Stadium.

I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt. Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.

Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.

Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!

You are complicit in this! You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner.

What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?

I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National  Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone?

Why is taunting not allowed, yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game!

You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not.

Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.

They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. 

They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7, often with lead, not footballs coming in their direction. 

They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! 

Many don’t have legs or arms.

Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.

I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, 'legends' in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!

Time to change the channel.

Powers originally sent his letter to former Florida congressman Allen West. West then posted the letter to his news website.

As of last week, at least 18 NFL players had protested the anthem by either kneeling during the anthem or raising their fists, according to USA Today Sports.

NOTE:  Received this today and have been asked to post and to encourage your participation in a protest campaign. America, please write your letters, emails, faxes or make phone calls to the NFL and express your thoughts about the blatant disrespect for our nation and the NFL fans as exhibited by their team members. Most would never earn the millions and live the luxurious lifestyles they do if it wasn't for their living in the united States and the sports fans who faithfully attend the games and watch on TV. Perhaps the time has come to boycott the NFL.  We can show these players that we don't need them - they can be fired and replacements found for their positions.  Better yet, find something constructive to do for our nation. Lord knows there are enough problems to be worked and solved. Become a part of the 'gang' that is making a positive difference for our country.

I fully agree and as long as this continues to happen I will no longer have anything to do with the NFL or games.

Fire them. It is bad enough that when I travel, I have to pay a "stadium tax" on airline tickets and car rentals in certain cities to fund these stadium, which in turn, their owners make massive profits -- and when I never ever go to any of these games or watch on tv. Now to see these sad publicity stunts in the news. Fire them. Don't like America, take a boat to anywhere else. ( I never watch gang sports. Watching grown men run around in tights and chasing balls. - Does nothing for my gay heart.)

I Appreciate the Writers passion for this subject, But I have to say is there is no Honor Fighting Illegal or Bankers Wars and Blowing off on Someone who is taking an Honest stand against Tyranny of any Kind needs to be Understood and why they are doing what they are doing!! Its easy to attack the Messenger instead of the message! The Military Has been compromised with so many illegal perpetual wars! Vietnam was a good example of how much people disrespected the military when found out it was a Globalist Banker war! So the difference is they were Drafted and from that time on the draft was ended and now it is a so called voluntary while being lured in now by Amenities! The Military is for defense Only and its not the police of the world, But has been compromised into something else which is why so many mental issues and Suicides are constantly ongoing!Mass Genocide is nothing to be Proud of and the minute we went into Iraq and any other country after that all was illegal!! Hard to be Proud of that!! Sorry but all of this has become something Else ans just Needs to be Cleaned up as the Leadership has failed in what it was created for!

The NFL games needs to be canceled for thirty days until Roger Goodell and all the other administrators of this terrible cancer called the NFL are carted off to prison for disrespecting the flag.

Anyone who is saluting Islam and also claiming to manage this nation's games is disrespecting the flag, or saluting the Star of David, the Crescent Moon with the stars (Turkish flag) or any other nation period!! That is NOT WHAT THE GAMES WERE MEANT FOR!

Fire all these sellout commissioners. And put the admirals who covered up the war crimes of three illegal wars in jail, amen.

Great cause & willing to assist Ret. Marine Col. Jeffery Powers. Appreciate comments too. Wanted to add that the Military Industrial Complex is behind pro ball. Yep. So, those traitors in the MIC so adorned by Obastard & jews who promote this need to be called out. The so called breast exposure "accident" of Janet Jackson & Justin Timberlake was purposeful followed by the vulgar, low class, cheap costly halftime entertainer$, including jew Roseanne Barr belching out the national anthem, also deserve being called out. It may help us to know football ticket sales are down. Sure the economy is part of it (same Network of Global Corporate Control as Karen Hudes calls it), but hope fathers and mothers are tuning away the brainwashing propaganda promoted by the same bunch putting subliminal pornography in Disney childrens movies. CIA, DHS, RAND, DARPA, Google, Facecrook, Microsoft, etc all contribute to the pool of filth & degeneracy.

By the way I'd like to posit that all of these entities who use our wealth in any way, especially via fraud, lies, graft, theft, including issuance by congress who are actually Board of Directors for USA Inc under their bogus 2nd Constitution, are owned by We the People. All of their proceeds are to be provided to We the People, legitimate heirs of this nation & all of its assets. Including jew immigrant Elon Musk-rat who floats into our nation & uses our wealth to fund his revolving scams shall not retain the wealth taken nor generated from these endeavors. Islamist immigrant Fethullah Gulen who owns a charter school system in our US involved in Turkish coup, all his wealth is ours. Same for the most criminal jesuits (who are really jews as are the Saudi Royals & Wahhabi's) using our wealth to subjugate us. These are OUR universities they took over, our student-loans to dismiss, our telescopes, our lands, our children not theirs - and that goes for the Vatican Vatiscam & its priestly pedo network, who harvest us endlessly, as Lockheed Martin, Big Pharma, Big Med ($3.2 trillion in profit) major investment holders, etc. So think about this. Let it roll around your noggin like a sip of fine wine. All of it is OURS not theirs if they used our wealths. Period. Including these Roman Gladiator entertainment venue sports clubs & all proceeds. Take them down & strip their assets.

PS: notice too these are pretty much mens clubs. Good Men, we must stand tall & strong, protect our children & women from their amoral, immoral death grip. Create your own games with the neighborhood children. Just play. Kick a ball around. So what. Its not a game to 'them', degeneracy is their business. We don't need them, they need us. Thank You & Happy New Year

Leadership has failed in what it was created for!

I believe that statement to be incorrect as I believe leadership today has been conditioned to do exactly what they are doing.

People in the military are conditioned to follow orders and stay out of the politics. Things are getting so bad now that they are starting to look around to find out what's going on in the world.

Steve Adams: Write the NFL Commissioners,,wth,,,? Marine Col. Jeffery Powers is living in a world where he believes the flag represents a honest and true republic. Troops are defending our rights, protecting our freedoms and fighting the evil terrorists,,,,if Wolf Blitzer says it happened then it happened. What he fails to realize is that he's totally programmed and may as well be living in a death cult. That "world", and those "wars" are based on false narratives and out right total lies,,,, btw in participating and fighting in those illegal wars he's complicit of murder. I bet Jeff's done great things for the cabal. Now he's focused his talents on a football player that doesn't believe in that world? Disrespect's that fake BS world. The irony is insane. Sadly Its guys like Marine Col. Jeffery Powers who are (tip of the spear) directly part of the problem, reaction, solution fake world we find ourselves trapped in. The real enemy is the global abuse of perception and the TV main stream media. If the TV news media doesn't show a football player disrespecting the flag, well then it just didn't happen. Unfortunately the TV MSM has manipulated idiots like Marine Col. Jeffery Powers into killing people in the name of that flag that stands for that fake reality. One of the main rules of engagement is knowing your enemy. In this case all the training Marine Col. Jeffery Powers received was for nothing,,,,,, Christmas is great, Christians are awesome people, but let's not forget Santa Claus is the first big lie we teach our kids. After that it gets easier. Tooth Fairies and Easter bunnies. All lies that promote a fake global perception from birth. R.I.P. Pat Tillman. He believed the lie so much he tossed away a career in the NFL.

I'm not writing anyone!

There are so many more problems in this country, than a football game or club.

Stop Watching it! Quit trying to legislate Morality! His First, he has the right to do it, and we often have to put up with what we don't like. Try caring about more important things.
