High School Referees Take Kneeling Nonsense into Their Own Hands

The NFL’s latest controversy has been a difficult one to manage for the league, who have handcuffed themselves to Roger Goodall’s do-nothing attitude.

The league itself is in shambles.  The National Anthem of the United States has been turned from a symbol of freedom and leadership into a soapbox for athletes to demonstrate their political views, all while the NFL management team sits back and allows it to happen.  They are the only ones with the power to change what Americans are finding so despicable about modern football players…

Or are they?

That’s where an intrepid group of high school football referees come into play.

“The officials, Ernie Lunardelli, 54, and his son, Anthony Lunardelli, 27, stood for the anthem and then abruptly left the field after seeing the players kneeling. Their spots on the five-person crew were filled by junior cadet officials at the game, Ernie Lunardelli said.

“’I’m not in favor of anyone disrespecting our country, our flag, the armed forces,’ Ernie Lunardelli told NJ Advance Media Saturday afternoon. ‘What they’re protesting has nothing to do with the national anthem and I’m against it, so I decided to protest for them kneeling and that’s what I did.’ Ernie Lunardelli said weeks ago he informed the officials assigner for the Greater Middlesex Conference, Thomas Paulikas, that he would walk off the field if any players knelt for the anthem before his games.”

And there you have it; a workaround strategy for dealing with these pathetically phony and transparent political stunts occurring within the confines of Roger Goodell’s NFL.

By eliminating key elements of the game’s playing through the removal of referees, management, and staff, the spectacle to behold will wither away.  The fans are already leaving.  The television viewers are tuning out.  Now, what about the hot dog vendors, the ushers, the box office staff, and even the referees themselves?  Could they stroll away from the dumpster fire that the NFL is this year in order to fire a warning shot over the inflated ego of Roger Goodell?
