A Few Words About the NFL National Anthem Flap

I was bored on my flight back to Detroit, so I figured that it was time to blog.

I’ll start with the NFL and the National anthem flap. I deeply respect the players’ right to protest. However, I deeply disagree with the decision to disrespect our country by protesting during our national anthem, which is or should be one of the things that unify us. And protest on your own time and not at your game. It may surprise some to learn that there’s no free speech right in a business context.

This is all governed by the player’s contract and the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players’ union. The league could have and should have stopped this foolishness, but they were scared of the players. However, I predict that when the owners calculate the cost of their cowardice,I bet that things change. I’m simply serving as a change agent as I discuss in the next paragraph.

To me,this transgression, which was a breach of trust, warranted serious punishment. After careful and prayerful consideration, I determined that the death penalty was appropriate. Therefore, I’m boycotting the NFL.

That’ll do it for now, but like our meely mouthed congressmen, I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks, as well as the remainder of my time.
