We live in such a time of disrespect. Back in the day, your parents taught you to respect. If people cannot respect our country and flag…move somewhere where you can! Do I agree with everything in America? NO! But I love my country and I am proud of all the men and women who have and do fight to keep us safe and for our freedoms!
If athletes can’t stand for the national anthem then they don’t deserve playing football and getting paid millions of dollars in this country. These days it is such an embarrassing shame what America has turned into.
Football is a sport played by athletics paid millions to do for the entertainment of the fans. It has nothing do do with politics, the Flag or the National Anthem. Most of the players are Black so where is the oppression for them to disrespect our Flag or National Anthem?
Today the national anthem protests continued, but one team took it to a whole new level that we’ve never seen before and this time, it wasn’t even during the national anthem.
Before the kickoff of the New Orleans Saints versus the Detroit Lions game, and even before the presentation of the American flag, several Saints players took a knee. But their timing is what is really turning heads.
The players took a knee during a moment of silence for a murdered police officer named Marcus McNeil, who was a father of two and was slain while on duty just two days prior to the game:

Because of the kneeling players, fans rained down boo’s on the players during the moment of silence, making it not very silent at all and ruining the tribute.

NFL stands for nothing if they cannot follow their own rules. Actions speak louder then words and the actions during our anthem is disgusting and disrespectful and shows every one worldwide their real thoughts about our nation. Protesting is one thing but doing it during our anthem for any reason is horrible.
Share this an expose the millionaires that call themselves players for what they really are!
