Over the last decade or so, the NFL has become so “woke” that many Americans are choosing not to tune in.

Whether it is segregated national anthems, advocacy campaigns for just about every left-wing issue, or promoting anti-American protests, the NFL is practically unwatchable these days.

And Bill Maher just dropped a truth bomb on the “woke” NFL with his remark about this coach.

The National Football League used to be one of the toughest professional sports leagues out there.

Even just several years ago, only the toughest badasses could survive in the NFL.

Unfortunately, today’s NFL has become completely feminized.

Tooth-shattering tackles are completely discouraged, and there is a flag thrown on almost every other play.

To make matters worse, the NFL has gone to extreme lengths to make the league as “woke” as humanly possible.

Examples include promoting players to kneel during the national anthem, allowing trannies onto cheer squads, and enabling segregated national anthems.

All in the name of “social justice.”

What the NFL does not realize is, most NFL fans want nothing to do with that crap.

People watch football to get away from the burdens of life, not be reminded of them.

And if you do not comply with the NFL’s “woke” crusade, then be prepared to be punished severely.

A prime example can be seen in the way the NFL handled a situation that occurred just recently involving a coach who stated a political opinion that did not conform with the NFL’s woke guidelines.

Jack Del Rio, the defensive coordinator for the Washington Commies, tweeted out “I see the images on TV, people’s livelihoods are being destroyed. Businesses are being burned down. No problem. And then we have a dust-up at the Capitol, where nothing burned down. And we’re going to make that a major deal.”

Jack Del Rio is exactly right, and most NFL viewers would likely agree with that statement.

But as you can imagine, the NFL went absolutely ballistic once this tweet was uncovered.

Del Rio was forced to apologize and was fined a whopping $100,000 for the tweet.

These actions by the NFL are entirely partisan and shows that the NFL has gone way over the edge with its adherence to left-wing dogma.

Fortunately, even some liberals are voicing their concerns over this attack on free speech.

One of those voices is late talk show host and comedian, Bill Maher, the host of Real Time, on HBO.

Despite being an outspoken liberal for his entire life, Maher voiced his concerns over this ridiculous assault on Del Rio’s right to free speech.

Bill Maher argued, “He has the right to be wrong. In America, you have the right to be wrong. They fined him, the team fined him, $100,000 for this opinion. Fining people for an opinion. I am not down with that.”

Maher is absolutely right about this one.

Just because you do not like what somebody said does not mean you should fine them $100,000 to bow down to you and your “woke” opinions.

This fine by the NFL is just another part of a disturbing trend professional sports teams have made towards appeasing the extreme far-left.

If the NFL keeps this up, then viewership will only continue to decrease.
