NFL Moves Opener to Protect Obama Speech at Democrat Convention

The NFL opener will now be held on a Wednesday night – the first time since 1948. Mark your calendar for September 5, kickoff at 7:30 pm ET on NBC.

The 2012 Democratic National Convention is being held in Charlotte, N.C., and Obama is planning to make his acceptance speech at Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers. Source

  • Vomit – boycott that damn speech. I have no intention to listen to a Muslim that says of all things: “the sweetest sound on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.” What is Obama going to do have the speech after he plays his Muslim call to prayer (which BTW is his National Anthem) at sunset.
    Hell fire why didn’t Obama just have his cockamamie speech and forget about the NFL opener. Not interested in either one anyway. Maybe Sandusky is going to give a speech on that night huh! Same difference, all in it for the money. Whether you are a pedi or favor abortion – they both major in minors!
    Disgusting disgraceful ego is right! Lord help us All.
