At stadiums across the country, racist athletes continue to “take a knee” while the national anthem is played before football games. In light of these disrespectful demonstrations, Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully has wrecked the worlds of these petulant NFL brats with just seven words. You’re going to love this!
On Saturday night, following the Dodgers’ devastating World Series defeat by the Houston Astros earlier in the week, former Dodgers announcer and Hall of Famer Vin Scully was at the Pasadena Civic Center for an event called “An Evening With Vin Scully.”
According to CBS Sports, at some point during the event, Scully was asked about the NFL’s national anthem protests, in which players have taken a knee during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to protest supposed police brutality and racism. Scully said that he “will never watch another NFL game” because of the protests.

“I have only one personal thought, really,” said the Hall of Famer, as reported by Deadspin. “And I am so disappointed. And I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday,” added Scully.
“And it’s not that I’m some great patriot,” he said. “I was in the Navy for a year — didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game,” he concluded.
Vin Scully, who will turn 90 later this month, briefly served in the Navy before beginning his broadcasting career. As a veteran, one can understand his disappointment at watching self-entitled athletes who have never sacrificed for their country, yet have been afforded such tremendous opportunity, kneel during the anthem.
Scully’s comments were met by thunderous applause from attendees at the event where he was speaking, according to The Gateway Pundit, and he received even more support for his remarks via social media after the fact.

Of course, this was not the first time that Major League Baseball has essentially given the NFL the middle finger over the anthem protests. During Game 7 of the World Series, MLB welcomed the Los Angeles Police Department quartet to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” During their awe-inspiring rendition of the song, every baseball player on the field stood respectfully with their hand over their heart.
Frankly, it’s amazing that even with the tremendous backlash the NFL has received over the ongoing anthem protests, the league has not yet put the kibosh on the disrespectful demonstrations. One is led to wonder what more it would take for team owners to start requiring their players to stand with their hands over their hearts to honor our flag and country.
The NFL has already lost its biggest sponsor, Papa John’s pizza, due to the protests, and each Sunday fewer and fewer fans appear at football stadiums across the country. But, still, the anthem protesters refuse to learn from their mistake.
Either these overpaid athletes have suffered one too many concussions, leaving them without the proper cognitive reasoning skills, or they are operating under the instruction of the liberal playbook. After all, those on the left have never been accused of changing their ways in order to avoid repeating history.
It seems that in the wake of these upsetting protests of the national anthem, the best we can do is follow the lead of Vin Scully and others like him who have stopped watching the NFL altogether. This is the best and most effective way to hit them where it hurts the most.
