Respect, Protest and the NFL

American FlagWhen you have a knowledge of history and an experiential understanding of what was required of the generations that went before us it instills an understanding and respect for the sacrifices made to protect this country’s freedom

Us stupid old people have dads who fought and died for this country. We have beliefs & convictions dissimilar to yours but just as important to us as yours are to you (speaking to the young NFL players & those of the millienal generation). We also have feelings like you

The National Anthem is a treasure to me; it often brings tears to my eyes

I think where we differ is in our understanding of protest and respect. I honor my father and the sacrifices he made for this country each time the Anthem is sung; no matter what I’m pissed about. Sorry I’m so old fashion

I really wish you would find other ways to protest. But hey, I’ll accept your right to sit. So sit if u want

I hope you respect my decision (and right), and the 1000s of other fans, when we quit watching. It’s coming you know

I love college football

Bye bye
