And the tax payers should be freed of the burden of supporting these children of the millions of dollars the team's receive each year. They are private individuals working for privately held organizations and should not be supported with tax dollars.
Further, they seem to b e ignorant of the history of the country and the national anthem and we the tax payers have the right to not support these idiots.
I wish we wouldn't give into this "free speech" argument. Football teams have a right to fire players for this type of behavior--we're talking a private business here, not the government. This has nothing to do with the first amendment. No one is suggesting that these players should be prosecuted. Why do we treat this non-argument as if it were an argument?
