Never said I was a "Cold War hero", just mentioned the time period that I sacrificed for & served my country.
I'm a long. long time lurker. Up until now, I really never had any reason to post; all the fantasy football advice and information I've read here has helped me win several championships over the decades (Thank you gentlemen!)
But, when I read a post equating players kneeling to being disrespectful to "all"military - as a highly-decorated military veteran, I rightfully/respectfully disagree. That is all ...see no name-calling
I don't think this is so much to do much with them protesting, but why pick the anthem of a football game to do it? Obviously it's inflammatory with no positive results.
First of all, noone really knows what they are protesting, some say the whole police department in general, others say the president, others say just everything in general, and secondly, their employer doesn't want them to do it while on work hours. Bye bye kaepernick.
The players have enough means to protest on their own time. And if they don't, then they can join a cause and donate their time. But no, they just want to be seen as some kind of people who care by spending 2 minutes kneeling on tv. But in the end you see far more of these guys getting into trouble in their off hours than this protesting thing they "care" about "in their off hours".
