Stuart Varney has now joined Fox and Friends on Monday to talk about the NFL national anthem controversy. This Sunday, two-hundred NFL players and staff knelt down to protest the national anthem.
Varney reminded the entire FOX and Friends nation that the NFL stadium has collected $1 billion in federal subsidies. That’s horrible. Watch him below.

Stuart Varney: “There’s $1.1 billion in direct subsidies from taxpayers to the NFL… Taxpayer subsidies go to the building of stadiums. There have been 20 new NFL stadiums since 1997. All of them have received a degree of taxpayer subsidies.”
Wow. They don’t respect the country, yet all these NFL teams use taxpayer funds to build their massive stadiums.
According to Fox Sports, the American public has spent $7 billion to build and renovate NFL stadiums over the last 20 years. The US taxpayer often pays 46 percent of the cost to build these projects.
It’s time to cut them off. Share this if you agree.
The NFL doesn’t respect us. Why should we respect them? God bless this country and all those that have died and fought for it.
