If this bill passes, then it has to survive the court battle that will ensue from it. And if the state loses the battle, once again it will now be
forced to deal with the lose of business and the hundreds of thousands of dollars on losing the lawsuit that would be argued up to the US Supreme
court over it.
But if I was the owner of the team and this bill was gaining traction, then there would be a choice made, stay and fight it, or simply move from the
state. I am sure the NFL would support said move, and there would be other states that would welcome in a professional sports team in to be there.
This would be another economic hit to the state and would give some other businesses the idea of moving and going to other states.
The thing is that if you do or do not agree with this, it is a form of speech. Just cause a person is a celebrity, or elected, or the CEO of a
company does not mean that they lose the various rights that are framed in the constitution of the USA. It may be modified, as in the case of say the
military or the police, but ultimately they all still have the freedom of speech.
And the one thing that no one seems to be looking at is that while this is a form of speech and protest, it is one that is silent, no one is
disrupting the national anthem. And there is no violence there, no one is trampling or destroying the flag. And for that we should back them, for a
peaceful, quiet protest that people notice and ultimately should be talking about why they are doing such and considering the reasons for such and if
there is basis for such.
