Or, what about the angle that NFL players stayed in the locker room for the anthem prior to 2008. There's also been millions of dollars spent by the DOD & National Guard(taxpayers) between the years 2010 and 2014... paying for and buying patriotism.
Shouldn't full disclosure of who funds military propaganda in private sectors of business be met at stadiums? I was then and I am still a born American Patriot... I never really needed or even want paid patriotism to exist at the expense of taxpayers. I'd much prefer we keep state affairs and private affairs separate.
Notice we weren't seeing protests and protests of protests prior to 2009?
Again, its just my opinion... but people getting sucked into either side of this irrelevancy are falling for the pushed divide of Americans. If anyone was protesting anthem kneeling prior to 2009, than I eat my words and apologize in advance.

I'm pretty sure I've seen you all over the go Hillary (evil mass murderous war criminal), SJW rahrahrah, you Americans need to have open borders, go globalism, around here the past year plus. Pretty sure back in the day when the neocon's loathed me called me a liberal everyday for calling out their insanity, you used to dig that.
If that wasn't you and I'm mistaken then I apologize.
But I'm pretty sure we both know I'm not mistaken.
More Hypocrisy in the NFL as DeAngelo Williams Gets Fined for Trying to Fight Breast Cancer
Business Insider reports that “in the end, after everybody has taken their cut, only 8.01 percent of money spent on pink NFL merchandise” is used to support breast cancer initiatives. In other words, it seems that all of this Think-Pink “fundraising” benefits the NFL most of all.
It's not about the protest anymore. It's a political pissing match and I'm not going to play.
