Pro Football…and It’s Future

I cannot say for sure that pro football has hurt itself by all the goings on this year and last. I’m reasonably sure it did not help itself. There are too many of us veterans who believe in America, the flag and our form of government to mess with our national anthem. You know, black lives do matter. All lives matter. Protesting is just as American as football. But you don’t dishonor our flag and our country by kneeling when it has been understood for years that standing was honoring our nation. Protest before. Protest after. Do not protest during. Tim Tebow was kneeing a few years ago and everyone had a fit, but that wasn’t during the anthem and he was praying. Pray before the game. Pray after the game. Even kneel and pray during the game if you can. Stand during the National Anthem. If you don’t, it may not ruin pro football but I can guarantee you it ain’t gonna help your cause or the cause of pro football ticket sales or TV  advertising. As soon as I saw the players kneeling before the Cowboys/Rams game, I changed channels. As soon as I saw the kneeling before the Bronco’s/Titan game I changed channels.  If there was kneeling at the Saints/Tampa Bay game I did not see it so I watched some of it but not a lot. I have been a Cowboy fan since Eddie LA Baron was quarterback, that’s how far I go back with them. Love the Cowboys….Not more than America. Protest some other way guys.
