Broncos Brandon Marshall: Taking A Knee…to the Financial Groin

When Colin Kaepernick protested the treatment of black people by not standing for the National Anthem, I ignored it. One stupid player doing something ridiculous didn’t mean much. But when other athletes joined into the nonsense…

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall joined with his comrade and is paying the price:

Marshall’s decision to kneel during the anthem has cost him an endorsement deal with Air Academy Federal Credit Union. The company announced on Friday that it’s severing all ties with the Broncos linebacker.

“Although we have enjoyed Brandon Marshall as our spokesperson over the past five months, Air Academy Federal Credit Union (AAFCU) has ended our partnership,” the AAFCU said in a statement. “AAFCU is a membership-based organization who has proudly served the military community for over 60 years. While we respect Brandon’s right of expression, his actions are not a representation of our organization and membership. We wish Brandon well on his future endeavors.”

Marshall is the first player who’s lost an endorsement deal over his decision to protest. Colin Kaepernick, Jeremy Lane and Eric Reid have also been protesting during the national anthem over the past two weeks.

This all would be easier to take if the protesters weren’t rich, idolized, and huge beneficiaries of the system they hate.

Now, for a palate cleanser: Whitney Houston giving the best rendition of the National Anthem ever.
