There’s another football league on the American landscape, and they just issued a scathing rebuke of the NFL’s national anthem protests.
Seriously, the Legends Football League, formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, is the voice of reason in the sports world these days.
The league, comprised of women playing football in lingerie, has echoed sentiments of President Donald Trump, declaring they will stand for the national anthem because “our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred.”
The women, unlike their male counterparts, will NOT take a knee.
“The LFL recognizes everyone’s First Amendment right to protest, but our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred,” the league said in a statement earlier this week. “Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice, so that our flag and anthem continue in all its majesty.”
“It symbolizes all the blood, sweat, and tears that have been shed so that we as Americans can raise our flag across our nation,” an announcer says during the video. “The LFL salutes all those who make this the greatest country in the world.”
“We stand in salute of our flag.”
The Lingerie Football League is now the country’s only pro-America professional football leaguehttps://t.co/8QoNPQhOV4

Smart, tough, pro-American football players. Something becoming more and more scarce in the NFL these days.

Come to think of it, since Colin Kaepernick is desperate to get back into playing football, it looks like there are some openings in the LFL for those seeking to try out.
Once again women prove they are smarter, tougher…. Lingerie Football League Responds to NFL: ‘We Stand!’ https://t.co/rAUczXedE0

It should be noted however, that two LFL players last season did in fact kneel during the national anthem.
Before a game against the Omaha Heart, Los Angeles Temptation players Sherri Awagah and Danielle Harvey decided to kneel as they protested the Star Spangled Banner.
Oh well, maybe the XFL can make a comeback. There’s no way Vince McMahon would allow players to kneel unless they’re placed in a headlock.
