While it was likely too little and too late to bring back many of the fans who were alienated over last year’s anti-American protests of the national anthem, the NFL and the networks wisely decided to not provide attention to the disciples of militant “race messiah” Colin Kaepernick this season.
The botched handling of the kneeling and fist-thrusting cost the league dearly and probably resulted in many sleepless nights for Commissioner Roger Goodell but there was clearly a decision made at the top levels to downplay the sideline antics of Kaepernick’s disciples this year and it worked.
Ratings are up, the focus is once again on the terrible officiating and the malcontents have been marginalized which is what should have happened from the get-go.
But one player who continues to protest despite his multimillion-dollar paycheck for playing a game is pissed off that he isn’t getting enough attention and Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Robert Quinn blasted the league and media for ignoring him.

Via The Daily Wire, “NFL Player Attacks Media For Not Covering His National Anthem Protest”:
NFL defensive end Robert Quinn of the Miami Dolphins is upset with the media, not for anything that they have said about him but because of what they didn’t say about him, namely, his weekly protest of the National Anthem.
Speaking with the Miami Herald, Quinn accused the media of ignoring his raised fist every week during the National Anthem.
“Y’all ignore it,” Quinn said. “Because when I gave my first message on trying to bring unity, y’all swept it under the rug. It’s not me. When you don’t give a problematic story, y’all just ran away. You’ve got this lady named Cyntoia Brown, or whatever her name is, and you sent her to life in prison because she was being sex-trafficked. But yet you guys dipped.”
Cyntoia Brown was sentenced to life in prison in Tennessee for a murder she committed at age 16. Activists have called for the courts to show more leniency in her situation due to her young age.
The Dolphins are closing out yet another miserable playoff-less season that will mercifully end on Sunday in frigid Buffalo and hasn’t’ gotten much out of Quinn except his protests.
This $11,444,412 salary earned him about $2 million per sack.
