Such patriots! The NFL owners charge the military for pre-game anthem displays.

Last edited Thu May 24, 2018, 01:08 PM - Edit history (1)

If the players must show allegiance and respect for the flag then the owners must do the same. A rule needs to be added to the NFL bylaws prohibiting the invoicing of our armed forces for pre-game military displays. In fact, they should be forced to pay taxpayers back for the privilege of using our fighter jets and military personnel.

Let's see how "patriotic" they are then.

You are correct Lebowski. They were shamed into it once it was exposed. I should have known that before posting. My anger at their cowardice caused an immediate gut reaction.

1. This is why the players are not allowed to stay in the locker room until after the anthem.

The military wants them to be part of the show they are paying for.
