Commissioner Goodell - Stop Profitting off Patriotism!!

This petition had 37 supporters

Dear Commissioner Goodell,

The NFL needs to end their multi-million dollar promotional agreement with the Department of Defense. 

The 10M plus dollars paid by Department of Defense to the NFL to produce patriotic displays at NFL games is a slap in the face to our service members and an utterly ridiculous use of tax dollars.  That's money that could be spent on training and equipping our troops, not paid to the NFL so franchises can wrap themselves in the American flag and fool viewers and fans into believing that patriotism and not profit is behind them. If NFL franchises want to continue with displays of patriotism and lavish anthem ceremonies that's great, but the franchises, NOT the Department of Defense should be footing the bill.

Thank you for your consideration.
