Spoiled brats who believe they are privileged because of who they are is how someone described NFL players who have been kneeling in protest during the playing of the National Anthem. Someone else described them as big hypocrites who are protesting the very system that is providing them to make millions of dollars playing a game. Personally, I have other descriptions of the NFL players protesting and disgracing the National Anthem, but as a Christian, I can’t share those descriptions, other than to say that if I were an NFL owner, I would have fired them after the first time and pass the word to others owners warning them about signing the crybabies to play for their team.
We all know how President Donald Trump feels about the disrespectful NFL protesters and now we know how Vice President Mike Pence feels about them after showing up to the game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers.
Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.

I’ve asked many others who say they support the NFL players and condemn Trump for his call to fire the players, what would happen if they did something like that on their job. Most of them all admit they would probably be fired, and that’s when I ask them what’s the difference? These players are on the job and they are disgracing the National Anthem, the American flag, the United States and millions of men and women who have served in the military, many of which have died or were wounded. When put that way, most of the people I’ve talked to change their mind. Frankly, fans should stay away from games, not buy tickets, not watch them on TV and not buy any NFL items. The league could be bankrupt by the end of the season if fans did what they should.
