The continued disrespect on the field for America and the police is unacceptable.

We saw a great amount of disrespect for law enforcement and this country on the field last year . This is why ratings dropped . If players wear the wrong shoes they are fined . If they disrespect the referee they are fined . Freedom of speech is not even allowed in the end zone when the celebrate or they get a penalty . So, why is this expression, which is much more divisive, acceptable?  Not only has that behavior continued into this year , we also have players who think it's acceptable to post pictures of law enforcement having their throats slit . While we are for free speech, players in the NFL are paid to do two things, play a game and provide people with entertainment . Many of them are also great role models for children. We are asking the NFL commissioner to no longer allow this kind of behavior without disciplinary action . Players can do what they  want off the field but they are representing a team and the NFL and enough is enough . Unless you want to see more empty seats and lower ratings put a stop to this or the NFL boycotts will increase.
