A controversial decision has recently been made by a regional airport commission in Minnesota, to take a stand against the disrespect of the NFL, for allowing players to kneel during the playing of the national anthem. The commission of ocurse, made the decision to bar flights into the area for Super Bowl LII.
During the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport commission’s meeting this Thursday, they spoke out their thoughts and harsh stand against the NFL’s national anthem protests. As a result, the small airport in Crow Wing County could potentially see overflow air traffic or diverted traffic, if other airports suffer weather-related delays, as the number of travelers increases abruptly for the big game.
It was Jeff Czeczok, a member of the commission, which introduced a resolution condemning the league for the disrespectful actions, and resolved that the airport would not accept the Super Bowl flights unless the NFL were to stop the protests.
“I just would like to remind the people sitting at this table that, you know, we have a national organization that has team members kneeling down during our national anthem,” said Czeczok.
Marty Johnson was another commissioner who refused to keep quiet and didn’t hold back on words, when it came to criticizing the media for supporting the protests and for “spotlighting” them and giving them more than enough media coverage.
