This is not good and we need some calmer heads to prevail. Look this is America, can’t you guys just protest and respect the flag?
Well we all know the NFL is finally getting tough and will consider making an official rule change next week to ban the anthem protests.
As they should as more and more owners are demanding that their players get off their butts and stand and respect the flag.
We knew that there would be some response from the players and now we know what it is.
According to ESPN, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Gerald McCoy had made a few horrific predictions about what the players will do if they are forced to stand and honor the flag.
As if that is so bad??
McCoy speaking on Adam Schefter’s ‘Know Them From Adam’ podcast said there could “be an uproar” if players are forced to honor the greatest country on the planet.
“I don’t think guys are gonna like it,” McCoy said, “I think it’s gonna be an uproar if that is to happen because you’re basically taking away a constitutional right to freedom of speech. If guys wanna have a, I guess you would call it a peaceful protest, I don’t think it’s right to take that away.”
Well, they won’t listen to reason.
Charles Barkley told them to put their money where their mouths are and invest in these communities rather than protest the flag.
Martha Ford, the owner of the Lions, offered to match contributions if the players ever wanted to invest in these communities.
But they just want to protest rather than actually solve the problem. Or that is the way it seems to most Americans.
“I had two teammates who did it, in Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson. That’s their right to do that,” McCoy added, “and if they’re gonna do it, they’re gonna have the support of the whole team.
“But if you take that away from them, there’s gonna be an uproar. It’s just gonna happen because now it’s just like you have a voice at one point, but then you don’t at this point. And, that’s our right … it’s a constitutional right that we have, and if you take that away, I don’t think people are gonna take too kindly to it.”
