The thugs in the NFL are taking things entirely too far with their ridiculous anti-American protests.
What started as a seemingly voluntary protests against perceived injustices has now morphed into something much, much more sinister, as players are now punishing others who refuse to join them in disrespecting the country.
We previously reported that the Oakland Raiders allowed their quarterback Derick Carr to endure a severe beating after his offensive line refused to block for him back in September, when he was one of the only players standing during the playing of the National Anthem. Carr, who’s white, was repeatedly sacked by the other team and couldn’t remain in the pocket to get anything going because his teammates were more concerned with making a point than winning a game, and it wasn’t the first time it happened.
According to radio hosts Armstrong & Getty, the quarterback for the Oakland Raiders was made to pay a hefty price by his team after he refused to kneel with them during the pre-game ceremonies.
In fact, the Raiders ended up losing Sunday’s game against the Redskins 27-10, and the radio personalities believe it’s directly linked to the fact that their offensive line threw the game to teach Derick Carr a lesson.
Keep in mind that Carr is white, most of his line is black, and he was one of the only ones seen standing on Sunday.
At the time, the reports were purely speculative. However, now someone’s coming out and telling the story of what happened.
According to a bombshell admission from the wife of NFL cornerback Brent Grimes, his team totally turned their back on him because he refuses to protest the Anthem. Apparently, Carr’s injuries stem from the fact that his offensive line allowed him to be brutally punished by the opposing team once again the following week when they played the Denver Broncos, causing Carr to injure his back and taking him out for at least four weeks.

To reinforce the allegations from Grimes, Breitbart News reported the following:
In 2016, the Raiders allowed the fewest sacks of any team in the NFL, going ten games allowing one sack, or fewer. Going into their Week 3 match-up against the Redskins, the Raiders had only allowed two sacks in their first two games, both of them coming in Week 1 with a banged-up offensive line.
Against the Redskins, the Raiders gave up four sacks and six quarterback hits. Double the amount of sacks they had allowed in the first two games.
To put that into perspective, the Redskins, a team with an improving but by no means great defensive front, notched four sacks in their first two games. Meaning, they equaled their sack total from the first two weeks in one game against the Raiders. On the other hand, the Redskins notched four sacks and nine quarterback hits the next week when they took on the Chiefs.
To be fair, Raiders offensive tackle Donald Penn vehemently denies allowing Carr to take a beating. But then again, why wouldn’t he?
“It’s crazy how people will make up lies and tell a story so false and untrue 2 get them some attention,” Penn tweeted. “I hope it was worth it. All lies.”
If this story turns out to be true, the entire offensive line should be in serious, serious trouble.
Regardless, these protests have gone entirely too far. To say the NFL is in trouble would be the understatement of the century.
