NFL Players Should Just Come Out After The National Anthem
I kind of think players made their point about injustice by kneeling during the National Anthem. I also think that once you've made your point, you should move on.
Right now the NFL is thinking about instituting a 15-yard penalty against teams who have a player kneel. I think a much better way to solve the whole problem is, have the players come out after the anthem.
I don't even know why we force the teams to show fealty to the flag before they play. If they are there just to play a game and entertain us, then that's what they should do is, play a game an entertain us. I think it would also ROCK to have the anthem, then have the players bust out of their respective tunnels. It works from both a patriotic and entertainment perspective.
Having the players come out and/or be presented after the anthem makes perfect sense and gives everyone a way out, a way to put this controversy behind them. Yes, I understand that many of the problems still exist, but this can't go on forever. It's time to move on.
