Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray doesn’t care if people aren’t happy with his national anthem protest stance.

The young NFL star made it clear Wednesday that he will kneel during the national anthem this upcoming season. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Apparently, that didn’t sit too well with some fans, who chirped Murray on Instagram. According to Bleacher Report, the Oklahoma Heisman winner responded with, “You think I give a f**k?”

Honestly, I respect this attitude out of Murray. While I’m 100% against kneeling during the national anthem, you might as well go to the mat once you make the decision to do it.

If you’re going to get chirped by random people on the internet, you just have to stand your ground. You can’t back down.

That’s just the way it works. Once you give an inch, it’ll never stop. You have to draw a line in the sand with the internet crowd and let them know you’re not playing games.

Having said all of that, I’m still not pumped for football to turn into a political issue and massive debate.

Football is about uniting people around a common goal. It’s not about separating people over political debates.

Buckle up, folks. We’re going to be in for a chaos-filled 2020 campaign.
