1. You DON'T have a "right" to protest while you're at work. These guys aren't playing for fun at their local field. This is a business. They're at work. Team owners can obviously tell players they're not allowed to protest at work.

These guys aren't even allowed to pick what color socks they wear. You obviously can't do or say whatever you want at work. You can do or say what your boss permits.

2. People are allowed to voice an opinion about your protest.

1) You can protest if your workplace has an union and/or whole bunch of people protest together. Go take a look at teachers, workers, etc protesting. All of these sports leagues have an union.

2) Sure. Just like people have a right to protest.
