Haven’t watched the NFL in weeks, and haven’t missed it a bit!

Not sure what you are watching, but with the exception of championship games, etc, the national anthem is NEVER shown on television, and hasn't been for a long time.

The media is not managing anything and the only reason that it is on big games like championships is because the league invites big names to sing or play and they want the attention.

Fact is, there have been a number of movements to stop playing the national anthem at sporting events (begun during the war) and which I would oppose.

But thanks again to CFRANCE for pointing out facts, instead of simply made up things

You are aware that this entire thread is based on a made up premise.

Just adding more fuel to the fire. Tuned out at kick-off!
Too bad you had to miss a good game by not understanding what the issue is all about.

They don't want to know what the actual issue is. Ignorance is bliss!

Wether the media telecasts the national anthem or not is not the issue as far as I am concerned.
I take issue with NFL players taking the knee during our national anthem to protest a cause they wish to promote.
They have every right to protest, but I firmly believe it should not be while they are at work.
And it is not what the fans are paying to watch.
Apparently I and a lot of other Americans find their actions, improper and disrespectful.
And I and millions of others are exercising our right to protest, by withdrawal of viewership and purchase of sponsors products.

Referring to the players as felons is a racist comment.

Really? Since there are many races in the NFL, it almost sounds like your retort is more racist to me.
