I don’t care if athletes in all sports take a seat, or a knee, during the playing of the U.S. national anthem.
In the grand scheme of things, I mean think about what’s going on in our world, it’s really not a big deal.
Sure, it’s a big deal to the men and women of the Armed Forces who put their lives on the line for our freedom.
Without them, without our veterans, we wouldn’t have the freedom to do what we do… including not standing for the anthem.
Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was the latest athlete to take a knee during the Star Spangled Banner before Thursday night’s NFL opener against Carolina.
He was Colin Kaepernick’s teammate at Nevada, and joined the San Francisco quarterback’s protest of racial inequality and police brutality against African Americans.
Fellow NFLers Eric Reid and Jeremy Lane have joined Kaepernick and so has women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe.
The Seattle Seahawks are planning a “demonstration of unity” prior to their season opener on Sunday, which don’t forget, is the 15th anniversary of 9-11.
Does anyone have the guts to take a knee on Sunday?
I can guarantee it won’t be Kaepernick because the Niners play on Monday night.
