Whatever you think about Trump, flag-kneeling or social justice, there’s no denying that the spoiled and thuggish behavior of athletes on the field is contributing to the decline of the NFL.
Yesterday, the Jaguars were leading the Seahawks in Jacksonville with time running out in the 4th quarter when Jacksonville went into “victory” formation. It is meant as a “white flag” for both teams as the QB with the commanding lead runs out the clock.
But the Seahawks – some of the biggest anthem-kneeling offenders of 2017 – tried to injure more than one of the Jaguars with diving shots to the knees.
A fight ensued. Players kept taking cheap shots at each other’s knees and ligaments until the referees ejected several “pro” athletes. It was sickening!
One of the ejected players felt beer splash his face as he walked under a tunnel of booing fans. That’s when all hell broke loose.
More from Business Insider:
Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Jacksonville Jaguars turned ugly late after a scuffle on the field and a near-scuffle between a player and fans.
As Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles took a knee to run out the clock in the final seconds, two Seahawks defenders hit him late, starting a fracas on the field.
Seahawks defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson was ejected, and as he made his way into the tunnel, he turned back to argue with nearby fans in the stands.
As the two parties exchanged words, someone appeared to throw an object at Jefferson. He tried climbing into the stands to fight the person, but security stopped him.
It was almost an ugly moment for the Jaguars, the Seahawks, the NFL, and everyone involved.
ALMOST an ugly moment?
