The head coach's attitude is upsetting. If he really didn't want controversy, he would've told those who weren't going to stand to stay in the locker room, and the rest of the team go out on the field. The coach in essence told his players they couldn't go out on the field and stand for the pledge and the national anthem, and only one player defied him.

I'm going to go where we should be very careful about treading. Is the racism of favoring the position of blacks by a black coach acceptable? Speaking out against a Veteran who respects the flag is not acceptable.

If it is deemed "acceptable" by the NFL and these Leftist coaches and owners for individual players to protest America by kneeling during the National Anthem or for the entire team not to show up (bunch of cowards) at all, then why is it not acceptable for a player, who is a true patriot, to stand at attention with his hand over his heart?

If your logic is that it is their right and freedom of speech to protest, then the same should be true for someone who is not dissing the flag and National Anthem by following conventional cultural protocol in standing and stunting or holding you hand over you heart.

They are unilaterally favoring the protesting players and targeting and dissing the stand-up guys who are respecting the flag, anthem and country.

The Left has been doing this not-respecting-the-flag crap since Obama started not holding his hand over his heart when he was running for president.

In my youth, the rallying cry was, "Love it or leave it." Same holds true today.
