The NFL’s numbers are in the tank and the kneeling has something to do with it! Americans do not appreciate the NFL displaying disrespect toward our flag and our Country by continuing to kneel during the National Anthem.
Hoosiers are about to do something about it!
Indianapolis law maker is positioning a bill to allow fans to get a rebate for their tickets if a player kneels at a Colts game.
Republican Rep. Milo Smith told the Indianapolis Star, that the impetus for the bill came when he witnessed the Colts protest at a game in September. As Smith described it, it was something that “didn’t sit right with me. To me when they take a knee during the national anthem, it’s not respecting the national anthem or our country,” Smith explained.
“Our government isn’t perfect, but it’s still the best country in the world and I think we need to be respectful of it.”
Remember when VP and Second Lady left the Colts game after players disrespected the flag during the Anthem?
I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.

And according to Brietbart, the Colt’s fans may not be the only ones who will be able to receive a refund. It appears the New Orleans Saint’s may be following suit.
A season ticket holder fan has asked for a full refund of 8,000 dollars because of the kneeling. Brietbart reported from ESPN: “The fan, Lee Dragna, claims in his lawsuit that he bought the tickets for the “entertainment and intellectual enjoyment” of himself and his family and that he never would have bought them if he had known that players would “use Saints football games as a platform for protests.”
