Not watching game.

I'm 54 yrs old soon to be 55. Have not missed a game since I was in the military. So disappointed in all of this about kneeling for the anthem. Rodgers is 1000 times smarter than me but he is wrong , the flag and the anthem is all about the military and the people who served and died  so that people can have freedom of speech and the freedom  of everyday life in the USA. So this week and and starting tonight I will boycott all nfl  games on television this weekend. This is really going to be hard, but this is my small stand. Go pack go

I'm on the side that it means different things for different people, or it can mean nothing at all.

I personally find it disrespectful to the men and women in uniform and everyone that has served. Which is really my only gripe about the whole situation. Like those aren't civilians escorting our flag to midfield. So, not respecting the flag and anthem is directly insulting to them and indirectly to everyone else.

The sad part is people in America have no idea how lucky they are to live here. It is literally the only haven left for free thought, free speech, and free expression. Check out guys like Jordan Peterson on Canada and bill 316, that was a pretty big deal. Countries like the UK, Canada, Australia and Switzerland are all "under the thumb."

I could care less what NFL athletes think or do. They all have an over inflated ego that makes them think the world is constantly watching them for direction, it's just too bad it's actually half true.
