    The brain damaged fools are free to exercise their right to disrespect our flag and national anthem.

    I am free to stop watching and supporting the NFL.

    NFL 2017 = Oprah 2007

    INVINCIBLE!!

    :rofl:

    Sorry,, but yes there are.
    In the NFL GUIDEBOOK, you will stand and face the flag with your right hand over your heart, and your helmet in your left hand.
    Hell, they can fine you if your on the field and your socks are not pulled up.

    How is kneeling a form of disrespect.

    You are claiming kneeling is a form of disrespect. That is a fallacy of false Cause.

    Just right wing monoculturalism. They probably envy North Korea.

    Obviously because it is a deliberate and premeditated failure to show proper respect. How is flipping somebody off or referring to them as "boy" showing a lack of respect?

    Guess you missed the fact that it was a former Green Beret who was also a Seattle Seahawk who had seen Kaepernick sitting during the anthem. He then wrote Kaepernick a letter and told him that he understood his protest, but thought that taking a knee would be more respectful than simply sitting down.

    Which would YOU have him do?

    Kaepernick read the letter and agreed, which is why he now takes a knee during the anthem.

    Like I said in the OP, when I enlisted, I swore an oath to the Constitution and all it stands for, not the flag, and not the anthem, but rather the Constitution. And, as stated before, if I am true to that oath, I will allow others the free speech afforded in that document, even if I don't agree with it.

    Great! Then you must be okay with those of us expressing our opinion of his actions.
