Per The Daily Caller, Taya Kyle, the widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle, penned a letter to the NFL and ripped them for focusing on “division” and refusing to stand for the national anthem.
Kyle argues that Americans have been football fans for so long because the NFL was about “celebrating each other based on skills, talent and a joint vision without regard to color and religion,” but now the NFL is choosing to “focus on division and anger.”
“Your desire to focus on division and anger has shattered what many people loved most about the sport,” Kyle says. “Football was really a metaphor for our ideal world — different backgrounds, talents, political beliefs and histories as one big team with one big goal — to do well, to win, TOGETHER.”
“Simplicity in a crazy world was pretty awesome,” she continues. “You dear NFL, have taken that. You have lost me here.”
