Agreed, never understood it. They don't play the national anthem when you go to the movies or a concert or whatever. Why at sporting events? I don't see the correlation.

They started doing that in India and you can go to prison if you don't stand up.

It's preposterous to me this is such a debated issue. Do people really have nothing else to occupy their time they care this much about what someone does during a 2-3 minute song? What people do during the national anthem wouldn't even crack the top 100 priorities of life, kneel, stand, I don't give a shit

They did at this one theater on Memorial Day before the previews. Most people stood up and pledged.

Agreed, but people have a cared a shit ton about what other adults did behind closed doors, whether all school children had to read the bible, pray and stand for the pledge, and shit like that.

Live and let live isn't on everyone's agenda.

Only fakkits disrespect their own country's anthem.

Despite what liberals want you to think, loving your country doesnt make you a racist white supremacist.

I honestly don't give a shit about the guys who are kneeling now. They're kneeling to practically protest Trump because he disrespected the league.

The only guy that was kneeling to protest police brutality and oppression is out of the league.

You guys have EASILY proven Kaepernick's point.

You can protest the anthem if it's against a jackass like Trump.

You still can't protest inequality.

Now kneeling is trendy...

What definitions are within your label of "liberals"? Who exactly are you talking about?

Some of the most "conservative" people in the world still find it strange to have your national anthem played before sporting events.

Our constitution doesn't have an irrevocable laws like the bill of rights, but yeah, we have pretty much all rights. Standing up for the national anthem before a movie is a supreme court mandate though.

If you want to protest, then do it on your own time....... not company time.

Then please, by all means, enlighten me how I don't understand when there's a time and place to protest something.

That's bizarre. Your supreme court ruled that way?
