It’s hard to believe that some who play what is arguably the most American sport in existence refuse to stand during the playing of the national anthem.

Their reasoning behind the kneeling is the right to protest on the behalf of civil rights and injustice, but a huge swath of America has seen the move as disrespectful to the flag and the U.S. military.

They make millions of dollars to play a televised game. Very few viewers tune in to watch a bunch of famous athletes air their political views.
