Satellite service DirecTV is refunding NFL Sunday Ticket subscriptions for customers offended by the weekend’s national anthem protests.
Normally the company does not give refunds for the specialty package after the season starts, but it apparently changed course after getting calls from hoards of customers upset over the players and coaches who knelt for the anthem during Sunday and Monday games, one former subscriber said.
Nine-time All-Star Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets in June in a deal that gave the Los Angeles Clippers seven players in return.
Hundreds of players took part in the national anthem demonstrations last weekend in response to comments the president made at a rally, in which he referred to any athlete who kneels as a son of a bitch.
The NFL mothers didn’t directly note the statement in their letter, but they did describe how their sons were trying to serve their communities and better the country.
Whether it be by kneeling or standing with their arms locked, our sons have chosen this platform to get the message out about social justice and unity, and they will always have our support, the letter reads. Now that we obviously have your attention, let’s put a stop to the divisive language and start a productive dialogue for positive change.

Like on, say, a James White touchdown run in overtime.
But you have Authentic Matt Moore Jersey to figure that the heat those coaching candidates are getting, what with multiple former Patriots front office guys situated around the league — most notably Bob Quinn with the Lions — likely isn’t ideal for Belichick making a Super Bowl run. There are always interviews that can get in the way of preparation, although it certainly did not bother the Patriots last year. As good as Belichick is, losing his offensive and defensive coordinator in a single offseason would be suboptimal.
