NFL kneeling continues

Over a dozen NFL players refused to stand for the national anthem on the final weekend of the regular season. Some went down on a knee to protest the flag and military, and some sat on their athletic butts.

Most fans didn't care that players refused to honor the anthem because it was more important they be entertained by sharing vicarious athletic achievement than to voice their displeasure with the unpatriotic display.

Nine Seattle Seahawk player protesters put on their display.: Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith, Frank Clark, Dion Jordan, and less talented players were among those demonstrating. 

Rishard Matthews a Tennessee Titans wide receiver remained off the field during the national anthem and his teammates, Brian Orakpo and Jurrell Casey, raised a 'black power' clenched fist at the end of the anthem.

Other players from the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins also knelt during the playing of the national anthem and the public refused to care.

If any one of those people could clearly explain what the national anthem has to do with their protest, I would be happy to listen. 

Meanwhile, I will continue to boycott the NFL.
