completely agree with your position.
I agree. Interestingly, there was a time when NFL players stayed in the locker room during the anthem. Also, the NFL gets checks to play the anthem. So there's some hypocritical stuff going on.
I was just trying to explain why some people have a problem. When they see the flag or hear the anthem, their mind goes to the military. Even though the protesters have mentioned that it is not a disrespect to the military, they wouldn't listen.
And I agree with you on protests, they are meant to make people uncomfortable.
It's good to have the opportunity to read your opinion on this matter.
I'm not too knowledgeable in how most americans feel about the military. But for what I could perceive it seems they hold these people in high regard. I'm not getting too much into it in order to not deviate the thread. However, it seems to be enough to simply cast a shadow over why are these players protesting, and what can be done about it.
On a side note, for what I've read many NFL owners (I could swear I even read all but one are white men) have a good relationship with Trump. And several of them have contributed to his campaign. So there's that tiny detail to be factored into the equation.
