Every year for one reason or another NFL is the centre of controversy for its stand on various issues. From Tim Tebow kneeling to god, Colin Kaepernick taking a knee against police brutality, and now Deshaun Watson’s punishment for multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, the league has seen it all over the past few years. Each of these issues has lived in the NFL world’s minds for quite some time.
As controversial as all these actions have been the NFL’s response to each has been more controversial. The world has been divided ever since. Each time the NFL hands out a new punishment, the organization’s past actions are brought up and a new controversy erupts.

Battle lines have been drawn and barbed words have been traded on each of these topics have fought to prove their points and many of the debaters have called for a boycott of the NFL. While the boycott seems unlikely the heated debate on Twitter continues-
