NFHell (NFL + hell)

The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league, headquartered in New York City. The NFL has been dubbed “NFHell” or “NFhell” or “NFhelL” (NFL + hell) since at least 1995 by those who do not like the league. “NFHell” was popularized in the fall of 2017, when many fans were angered when some NFL players kneeled during the national anthem. “#NFHELL” was posted on Twitter on August 13, 2017.

Other NFL nicknames include “National Felons League,” “Not For Long,” “No Fan Left,” “No Fan Loyalty” and “No Fun League.”


Wikipedia: National Football League
The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league consisting of 32 teams, divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The NFL is one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America, and the highest professional level of American football in the world. The NFL’s 17-week regular season runs from early September to late December, with each team playing 16 games and having one bye week. Following the conclusion of the regular season, six teams from each conference (four division winners and two wild card teams) advance to the playoffs, a single-elimination tournament culminating in the Super Bowl, which is usually held in the first Sunday in February, and is played between the champions of the NFC and AFC.

Wikipedia: U.S. national anthem protests (2016–present)
The protests began in the National Football League (NFL) after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat and later kneeled during the anthem, as opposed to the tradition of standing, before his team’s preseason games of 2016. Throughout the 2016 season, members of various NFL and other sports teams have engaged in similar silent protests. On September 24, 2017, the NFL protests became more widespread when over 200 players sat or kneeled in response to Donald Trump’s calling for owners to fire the protesting players.

5 June 1995, Sports Illustrated, “Fryar and brimstone” by Rick Reilly, pp. 82-95: 
Just before Fryar made it a decade in the NFHell, the Patriots traded him, in the off-season of 1993, to the Dolphins for a second- and a third-round draft choice.

Take the bench away. Then there’s no option but to stand.
