Fans booed New Orleans Saints players who knelt before the presentation of the American flag and the singing of the national anthem Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The boos rang down during a moment of silence for fallen NOPD officer Marcus McNeil, who was killed in the line of duty Friday. The fans cheered when the players stood before the anthem, which was performed by former Saintsation Deri Tucker. Sunday’s game vs. the Lions was the Saints’ first at the Dome since President Trump weighed in on protesting NFL players during a campaign rally in Alabama last month. Officer Marcus McNeil, 29, was slain while on duty Oct. 13, 2017.

Can someone do a Go Fund Me page on behalf of the NFL to donate a few clues to them? What are they gonna do for an encore? Do a Super Bowl halftime tribute to Mumia abu Jamal?

They’ll just laugh at booing people. Stop paying their salaries.

They don’t need to boo – just don’t go there to begin with.

How many times do they have to spit in their fans faces before there are No Fans Left (NFL)?
