New N. Carolina Panthers Owner Says Kneeling NFL Players Are Patriotic


The new owner of the North Carolina Panthers David Tepper said Thursday that it’s “dead wrong” for NFL players who kneel to protest brutality and racial inequality to be accused of being unpatriotic.


During an appearance on CNBC, Tepper, who purchased the NFL team for a record $2.275 billion this summer, said “it’s the biggest pile of bull-dingy ever” to slam players who choose to protest during the national anthem.

“It’s the biggest pile of bull-dingy ever. These are some of the most patriotic people and best people. These are great young men,” Tepper told CNBC. “It just makes me so aggravated and angry. OK? It’s just wrong. It’s just dead wrong.”

People should focus on what NFL players do in the community instead of what they do during the national anthem, Tepper added.

Tepper doesn’t like Trump and has referred to him as the “red-headed guy” in the past.

It’s good news to hear the players are great guys and are doing good things in various communities, but that doesn’t change the fact that they are dishonoring a symbol of our nation.

Mr. Tepper thinks he’s criticizing President Trump alone but millions of Americans feel the same way as the President.


To many Americans, it is upatriotic to kneel during the anthem, the symbol of our nation and our freedoms. The anthem and the flag are either an anthem or a symbol for Marxist protests.

Colin Kaepernick gave pressers wearing a shirt honoring communist monster Fidel Castro. He started it as an anti-American, anti-police protest. The ex-QB is pushing Marxist social change and is currently helping to fund Marxist kids’ training camps.

Millionaires kneeling during the anthem is unpatriotic, period. Maybe the players aren’t unpatriotic but the act is. If they want to protest police, they need to protest in front of police stations and they definitely need to refuse police help if they ever get in trouble.

The flag represents all we stand for as does the anthem

What do you think?



  1. He is completely off base, thousands of soldiers along with police officers have died protecting freedom and police protecting civilians from crime. So i disagree with him wholeheartedly. Why didn’t he hire Colin to be a part of staff, teaching morality and public relations on social justice.

  2. Just another rich dude with no respect for what allows him to be just that. Here we have millionaires and a billionaire with privilege and financial means to spread their message and organize …whatever they want really. News for you….we fans live it every day. Why do you think we pay the ransom demanded by you blood suckers. Protest on your time…not on mine. I paid dearly to watch football …not more virtue signaling, sjw rhetoric. And ESPECIALLY not during the time we all show unity and respect in honoring this great nation and our flag. Not saying your cause is not honorable. Just leave it at the door like everyone else with a job please and thanks.

  3. Carolina Panthers is the name.Carolina was once one of the 18 British Colonies which gave a state name after it’s name in 1777 South Carolina and in 1778 North Carolina.When Jerry Richardson established the team name he had our first NFL game ever to be played at memorial stadium death velly in Clemson,SC in 1995 and at then Ericcson Stadium in Charlotte,NC onward.
