The Hunt letter is a hoax. There was a rant by Jerry Jones, but Hunt never did the same. Please check your sources before putting out false narratives. Thanks.

Here is an actual statement on the anthem controversy by Mr. Hunt.

LMG, you accuse me of "not getting it" because I disagree with you. No, we are just looking at the same issue and coming to different conclusions. The players have made it crystal clear they are NOT protesting the anthem or what it stands for; they are instead protesting DURING the anthem to draw attention to an issue they believe should be addressed. This is a fact. You are absolutely sure that their behavior is disrespectful to the military/vets/nation/anthem/all that is good about America. To you, that is a fact. I believe that is an opinion. So, yes, I  "get it". As I wrote before, we will never agree on this issue. So, just as its best to be the lead dog, perhaps its best to let sleeping dogs lie.

ricky. I tried a half dozen times to frame another reply to the collective of LMG, The GM, Bignutz, Mark Lawrence. I deleted all of them because I came to the conclusion anything I said would be discounted by all of them. I applaud you for making an effort and actually taking on a counter-view.

Thanks. I'm a retired teacher, who still tries to educate. Also, teaching gave me lots of experience in  banghead

I like educating people also ricky.


Let me just ask one thing so I completely understand your thinking....Are you completely OK with the protesting going on during OUR National Anthem in the NFL Stadiums/Venues by some NFL Players?
If you are not the lead dog the view never changes.
