I'd Guess maybe 5 Percent of those who watch the NFL stand for the Anthem. The hypocrisy is HUGE

Well, isn't the "standing for the anthem" rule part of the NFL rule book?

If that's the case, it wouldn't apply to viewers at home.


Why would the NFL rule book apply to the fans anywhere.

You're just confirming my point.

it would not apply to people at the stadium. It's not about some NFL rule for fans anyway.

4 U.S. Code § 8 - Respect for flag

(c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free

Uh oh. Those people carrying that giant flag on the field are disrespecting it.

Those people are typically members of the military. Maybe you should point that out to one of them directly.

You probably wouldn't, though.

OK. The military can be disrespectful while requiring citizens to not be. Perfect.

If you think that military members rolling out the flag and saluting it are the issue but players taking knees aren't then I'm honestly really ashamed for America.

My guess is that you should check your o-rings.

It's all good. They have the right to protest. They can be jerks, it's allowed by the constitution.

There have been several issues brought up in these threads. But I'll give you a pass.

Them protesting is not protected by the Constitution. Everyone says they can do it because of freedom of speech and that really has nothing to do with it. Their employers could say zero protesting or you are fired and be perfectly legal.

How can a game be called 'football' if most of the game the ball is held in hands, maybe if America got the name of the sport right you wouldn't have these problems

For starters, those not standing at home aren't protesting a non-existent "threat". Pushing your bullsnip out to the masses through TV is dishonest and selfish. I don't care if people burn flags, nor sit during the anthem (for a real issue). I hate these idiots who are doing it because of dishonesty.

You your thread would make more sense if you used the word YUUUUGGGEEE, instead of HUGE.

It is a Trump/Pence world nowadays.
