What are your thoughts about various NFL team members kneeling during the national anthem?

 

nfl5My opinion is that they are expressing their right to freedom of speech and our president has no right to take those rights away from them.

nfl4I think that what each NFL player is doing is very inspiring to fans and the people should support them. They’re promoting Kaepernick’s protest on an even wider scale.

nfl3I understand both sides. I think our country is founded on rights and how we practice our beliefs, and I think it should be accepted in our society.

nfl2Our country is founded on freedom of speech and expression. Do I think it’s disrespectful to our troops and our flag? Yes. But it is their right, even though I don’t necessarily condone it.

nfl1I feel as though they are still respecting the reverence of the flag, they just don’t have their hand over their chest. So, in a way, they are still honoring the anthem.
