Time for the NFL fan base to start letting their money do their talking.

Who cares.

We fight wars to preserve freedom. We don't fight wars to pressure everybody to adhere to empty gestures. Societies that require conformity scare me. Zieg Heil

Then watch the games. That is your right.

It's also the right of others who do care not to watch them.

We ALL have rights.

When you're in the entertainment industry it's generally not a good idea to alienate the paying customers.
