The National Football League (NFL) will return more than $700,000 that it received from the US Defense Department which was used to honor the military.USA Today reported that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote to Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake on Thursday to inform them the league would repay $723,734 to taxpayers for events that celebrated members of the armed forces at games. "In order to ensure that military appreciation activities remain separate from military recruitment efforts in the future, the NFL will include an assessment of marketing contracts in our regular internal audit reviews," Goodell wrote in the letter. McCain and Flake produced a report in November which criticized the NFL for effectively taking money from taxpayers to fund the events, calling it “paid patriotism.” Flake admitted he was pleased the NFL had made the decision to return the money. "In all the years I've spent rooting out egregious federal spending, the NFL is the first organization to perform due diligence, take responsibility and return misspent funds to the taxpayers," he said. "The NFL's response to this investigation sets a new standard and only strengthens its reputation as a supporter our nation's military service members and veterans." Professional sports across the board over the last 20 years, have become nothing more but a push for political propaganda in Washington DC. If the US defense department handed over nearly $720,000 dollars to the NFL, it is nothing more then recruitment for Obama's military. People in the crowds at sporting events think these things pay tribute to military members, but all it really is, is a recruitment tool. Take it from me a NAVY veteran, this is not to pay respects to those who are serving or who have served. There is nothing Patriotic about jets flying over football games and military members holding giant American flags at sporting events, all this comes down to is military recruitment.
