Thoughts on the Sandy Hook students singing at the Super BowlSubmitted by bgj47 on Sun, 02/03/2013 - 11:55
Something I just noticed before the upcoming Super Bowl was the NFL having Sandy Hook children sing "God Bless America". This was announced just three days ago, and just six days ago, Obama had stated he didnt know if he would let kids of his play football. The NFL is in a precarious situation right now with the growing concern over long lasting head injuries. Many football fans, myself included, wonder about the future of the sport and the NFL has reason to be worried over its future. Considering the size of the sport and the money it pulls in, one can't help but think that our POTUS is pressuring the NFL with a veiled threat to pull on the heart strings of Americans further with Sandy Hook children singing at the most watched event in the world. Maybe I'm paranoid, but the timing of the two announcements seems a little like Obama threatening the NFL and the NFL complying to help with some more anti-gun propaganda. Anyone else think the same way? Seems like a political event to me.
