It appears that the 32 selfish millionaire clowns on the Denver Broncos football team whose focus on protesting against President Trump was more important than showing up to beat a lousy team in Buffalo have received the message loud and clear.
The privileged rich football players whose mutiny was headed up by $114.5 million man Von Miller who is paid to be a team leader will not be disrespecting the flag, screwing over their teammates, sticking it to loyal fans or letting their hatred of Trump take priority over what they are paid to do – shut up and play!
The Broncos have announced that the entire team will be standing for the Star-Spangled Banner this Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High when the hated Oakland Raiders are in town.
By all appearances, it seems like the NFL Hall of Famer John Elway whose current job is President and General Manager of the Broncos was able to get through to his racially-obsessed multi-millionaire prima donnas when he drew praise for his statement that politics should have no place in football.

The Hill reports on the epiphany that has swept the Broncos’ locker room after Elway’s statement in the article “Entire Denver Broncos team to ‘stand together’ for anthem”:
The Denver Broncos announced Thursday that the entire team will stand for the national anthem as a matter of policy, beginning on Sunday.
In a statement released on the team’s official Twitter account, the organization said it would show unity by standing for the national anthem as a team, one day after a similar pledge was made by the New England Patriots.
“We may have different values and beliefs, but there’s one thing we all agree on: We’re a team and we stand together — no matter how divisive some comments and issues can be, nothing should ever get in the way of that,” the statement reads.
“Starting Sunday, we’ll be standing together.”
The team’s decision comes after President Trump on Friday called at a campaign rally in Alabama for NFL owners to fire players who kneel or otherwise protest during the national anthem. Nearly three dozen members of the Broncos knelt during the anthem on Sunday, according to the Denver Post.
The Broncos seem to be one of the teams whose black players may just realize that they badly overplayed their hands when they chose to go rogue last weekend. It was a move sanctioned by the incompetent and feckless NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and players across the league decided to make their political statement that only served to make many fans hate them and take to burning jerseys and vowing to stop watching.
Ratings fell, Trump didn’t back down an inch and he also seems to have millions of Americans behind him no matter how the media spins it.
It was the players’ equivalent to cutting off one’s own nose to spite his face and reports are that a number of NFL teams will be standing this week although fans may have already decided that they have better things to do.
The lesson to be learned from this?
Even if the boss man is white he still is the BOSS and never bite the hand that feeds you. This is especially the case if happens to be an NFL legend who has three Super Bowl rings and walks on water in the city in which your team plays its games.
