If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If
my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber! Why do you think
the public cares what a football player thinks about politics?
want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek,
we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn’t seek advice on
playing his position from a defensive tackle!
You seem to have this over inflated view of yourselves, thinking
because you enjoy working on such a large scale stage, that somehow your
opinion about everything matters. The NFL realizes the importance of
its “image” so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you
can wear, the language you use, and your “antics” after a touchdown or
other “great” play. But somehow you and your employer don’t seem to care
that you disgrace the entire nation and its 320 million people in the
eyes of the world by publicly disrespecting this country, its flag, and
its anthem! The taxpaying citizens of this country subsidize your plush
work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend
those very citizens.
Do you even understand what the flag of this country means to so many
of its citizens before you choose to “take a knee” in protest of this
“country” during our national anthem?
You may think because you are paid so much that your job is tough, but you are clueless when it comes to tough.
