New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is pleading for “respect for everyone’s opinions,” after speaking out about the anti-American protests spreading across the National Football League, Breitbart reports.
PLAYERS have sat, kneeled and even bowed their heads in prayer as The Star-Spangled Banner echoes throughout stadiums.

Brady has been a huge advocate for players to kneel and protest and now he is babbling that anyone who stands against these spoiled brats, needs to respect them and allow them to throw their hatred and anti-America propaganda.
Someone needs to tell Brady, RESPECT is earned and not given and our Military and LEO earn theirs daily.
“You have to have respect for everyone’s opinions, Sports for me has been the most unifying part of my life. Never forget that. Like I said, I speak for myself, I believe what I believe, and you guys know me, I’m a very positive person. I try to just live by example and say positive things about people and I try to control my own emotions, and no matter what anyone said, I’m going to have a positive outlook, certainly with my teammates. We all go through ups and downs and there’s struggles and it’s life and we’re all trying to navigate it as best we can. I believe love is the greatest thing we have; it overcomes a lot of things.” ~ Tom Brady
President Donald Trump in 2017 railed against National Football League players who have protested the national anthem.
Speaking at a rally in Alabama, he said players who disrespect the flag and refuse to stand for the anthem should be ejected from the stadium and cut from their team.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now – he’s fired!'” Trump said.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement, calling Trump’s remarks “divisive.”
I encourage people to boycott the NFL, turn it off, do not endorse these scumbags and their propaganda.
