Army-Navy Game’s Stunning National Anthem

Not much interested in the NFL anymore, but I sure enjoyed the Army-Navy Game this year!

I served in the U.S.Air Force for 24 years. Watching and listening to patriotic young Americans showing this kind of respect for our flag and National Anthem just made my day!

It's a shame we have to even consider the fact anyone would disrespect our flag and anthem, by kneeling ......

Oh please. Kneeling at the game has nothing to do with disrespecting the flag. Give that a rest...

I'm not sure that the complaint of the participating NFL members has been clearly defined, but group pride, stubbornness, and arrogance may be clouding good judgement and a need for a clear purpose. In the end, the protesters don't seem to mind that they are not really communicating well with their audience, and the reason for their protest is lost to most of us and even blocked by the offence taken by many in the audience when apparent disrespect for our national symbols of patriotism overwhelms any protests the NFL players may be trying to communicate.
