    I would re-write every players contract. New Terms of Employment require you stand for the National Anthem. If not, discipline is warranted

    What I can’t figure out is where the sheriff’s office gets off telling Americans they lose their rights if they play football??

    That is really bizarre. :cuckoo:

    True..... And why would these ingrate players want police to help them?

    Maybe these players should protest a worthy cause like all the black folk being murdered in Chicago by their own?

    Make a difference

    You do have the right to do stupid stuff at your place of employment. Lets hope management takes action to eliminate it which is their right

    No need for that. Teams, or the NFL, could discipline players now, if they wanted to. They choose not to. So adding such a clause is not likely to happen.

    They weren’t volunteering. They were getting paid for that job. The Dolphins will have to find someone else.

    [edit: individual officers volunteer for the assignment but they are paid for their services]

    That covers the NFL...but now we are talking the Sheriff's Dept...a government entity...withdrawing protection because they don't like the players' free speech.

    Like Berkley PD not protecting conservative speakers.
    Didn't hear you whining 1st Amendment then.

    As many have pointed out...the First Amendment is about protection from the government....well, the Sheriff IS the government.

    You missed the difference between protection FROM and protection BY.

    Oh look... turns out you’re just another idiot who falls for fake news.

    FACT CHECK: Florida Sheriff’s Office Will Not Escort Miami Dolphins Until They Stand For National Anthem?

    Only if any of those players kneeled before but didn’t last night. Any of them do that?
