As you read in the headline President Trump said he will not watch games if players do not stand for the national anthem. I stand with him on this because to continue down this path is Anti American. In this country we have our freedom of speech, expression, and riots to peaceful protests. But the FLAG & Country you must protect, and honor. This is our land, and that is our flag. And the Anthem is something everyone can stand behind, and protect. People of all race, religions, and backgrounds.
I’m done with sports for a very long time, and will not be watching regardless… A lot of these players are Socialist extremists, and idiots. Guess what? I’m not missing not having sports to be honest! Or even new movies from PedophileWood. All they turn out is garbage these days anyway.

United States President Donald Trump has said he will not watch National Football League (NFL) or U.S. soccer team matches if players do not stand for the national anthem.
The U.S. Soccer Federation last week said it had dropped its requirement that players stand during the anthem, saying the policy was wrong and detracted from the Black Lives Matter movement.
The policy was adopted in 2017 after U.S. women’s national team member Megan Rapinoe took a knee during the anthem before a game, in solidarity with NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt to call attention to racial injustice.
