    Beyond that, I still think players should stand during the National Anthem. If they want to go to mid field after the Anthem and kneel and pray, I'm on board.
    That is unacceptable though. Many of the same people supporting these protests slammed Tim Tebow when he would kneel.

    Hypocrisy at it's finest.

    Officials have more integrity and class than to do something like that. That simply hurts the kids there to play a game. Officials would recognize
    this is an adult driven agenda that the kids don't fully comprehend.

    If you were playing say, Trinity, and the officials walk off and game is cancelled, then down deep your happy.

    Are you saying that things aren't better? I may have missed some posts.

    Using 8 year olds to make the coach's or parent's statement is wrong IMO.

    What are peoples thoughts about African Americans that are outraged or unhappy about players taking a knee during the National Anthem because they feel it disrespects the flag, the country and the military?
