‘The NFL needs to recognize the pain African-Americans are going through’
Two die-hard black Bears fans are forced to consider the extent of their loyalty
Dee and Leslie Tounsel have been Chicago Bears season-ticket holders for more than 30 years. They’ve experienced the highs of the ’85 championship season and endured the prolonged droughts and disappointments since that day. They also own every piece of Bears gear imaginable. There’s not much that can break their loyalty to their home team.
The response from the league and owners to the kneeling protests, however, has left them disappointed. The Tounsels have said they’ll support the Bears through thick and thin, but the events of the past two years have made them wonder what it’ll take to walk away from the NFL completely.
