With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I think if the team cannot stand for our country they should not be allowed to play for the people in our country. I bet if they lose their jobs and all that money that they would stand up. FCK these pieces of crap. I stand for my country, I stand with my President NO MATTER who he or she is. They are my president. I do not have to agree with their policies or how they do things. This is why they get elected and why they can be impeached if necessary. This is why we can elect a new president every 4 years. Sorry, this is something that has ticked me off and I used to like football. I REFUSE to watch it anymore because of these crybaby b***hs. I will not purchase any sports items for ANY sport because it is not just football. /me stepping down off my soapbox now. Rant over

I was putting a reverse spin on it. I can't control how people act or think but, I can control how I react to it. It's like when a child see's you get upset at them saying a bad word. they keep doing it. If the media would quit giving these idiots air time, they would stop acting like idiots.

Forgive others. Not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.

If your not willing to forgive others, how can you expect God to forgive you.

Unfortunately, we, as parents, did and do have control of our youth of today's actions. With all of the best of intentions, many of our children have been allowed to be become what they are. If we don't do something to correct so many of them considering themselves "victims" I shudder to think what the future holds for all of us.

To me, any perceived disrespect to our flag and what it stands for is a slap in the face to all that have fought and died defending it!

I too hope you are joking. If you think that is true look at there faces as they kneel during the anthem. Looking around in discontentment and derision.
They asked the crowd at Lambeau to join arms in unity. Instead they chanted USA, USA and stood and saluted the flag. Some put there hand over their heart and others stood facing the flag. Just a few in the crowd linked arms. I say good for them. Aaron Rodgers is a good quarterback. That doesn't give him the platform to express his political or Social views. Just because you can run fast and throw a football does not make you a model for our country. Remember virtually each and every one of these kids has been regimented and doctrinated through their college "education." We can think for ourselves and make our own decisions and opinions. Let our kids do the same. Leave them alone and educate them only. Keep football only football.

I was joking. I don't agree with it either, but life is to short to worry about a bunch of ignorant spoiled millionaires. They're kids, and they act and think like kids. If the media would stop egging it on, the problem would go away.

NFL Policy on National Anthem below.

What the NFL Game Operations Manual says about the anthem
The players do not receive the manual; policies in the manual are enforced by the teams. And the language about the anthem has not changed since 1978. (Perhaps it ought to now.)

The language in the manual is as follows: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. During the playing of the National Anthem, players on the field should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. Players in the bench areas should do the same, and should line themselves up evenly along the sidelines. The home team should insure that the American Flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Maybe its time to enforce the rules, Maybe fines and suspensions would put an end to the nonsense.

If only that were part of the rules. Other places say it is fake.
