This business of football players kneeling during our national anthem is totally un-American.
We read that some feel it is OK, freedom of speech, or simply a preference. Your own Mark Tupper says it is a "matter of preference."
The only preference is to live in American or not. It is certainly a choice to play pro football for thousands of dollars or not.
As Americans, we stand for "The Star Spangled Banner," period.
I am urging everyone to boycott the NFL. Do not attend games, do not watch on TV and do not buy the products of companies who sponsor them. If you accept the quote of the NFL commissioner that he "can do nothing," you must live in a cave.
For years the NFL office has controlled advertising, drugs, domestic abuse and a dozen other players' lives. Let's hurt them in their pocketbooks until they all stand up.
