CRAZY: NBC says it will broadcast PROTESTING players during its SUPER BOWL broadcast

(National SentinelNFHell: The NBC network, which is broadcasting this season’s Super Bowl, said it plans to show any NFL players who plant to protest during the playing of the National Anthem.

The anthem is traditionally played live and shown during Super Bowl broadcasts. But it wasn’t typical for TV networks to broadcast it for ordinary games during the regular season. That changed this last year, however, as more players took a knee or sat during the playing of the anthem, as a means of protesting alleged social injustices.

“When you are covering a live event, you are covering what’s happening,” NBC Sports EP Fred Gaudelli told reporters at the Television Critics Association on Tuesday.

“If there are players who choose to kneel, they will be shown live,” he said.

NBC broadcasters Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth would likely give the players’ names, some background on the a protests, and then “get on with the game,” he added.

According to Fox News, “The anthem will be aired live and is scheduled to be performed by Pink. Potential protesters will have an opportunity to make a statement in front of a massive audience, as 112.2 million people watched Super Bowl LI last season – the fifth most-watched program in television history.”

That may not be accurate. This season, the protests have been blamed for double-digit decreases in ratings and loss of millions of viewers.

  1. I know it’s really not very of to say this but BUT I remember in school how we all hated the boring national anthemThen in corporate world the mumbling shot even more inaudible and if it wasn’t for the recording singers there would have been almost no vocals st all Nearly everybody just giving lip service silently I think it’s time people moved on really And sitting or standing or kneeling is all too much like being in Sunday school or church for my liking

  2. Not watching the Superbowl either. They can all go to hell. Who needs football anyways. What a dumbass sport.

  3. When the disrespect of the dead in my family that protected this country they can stick it. Will never watch another nfl game as long as I live. It’s all a bunch of crap they protest and they have no idea what they are doing they do not get one red cent from me.
