Stop the protests by professional athletes

This petition had 166 supporters

The people of this country demand that all professional sports players stand for the national anthem. There is not 1 job in this country where a person can protest without losing their jobs, why should professional athletes be any different? These Sports leagues need to understand that most of the country does not agree or like what is going on and we do have the power to boycott the games and any company that advertises with these leagues.

“I got to give a big pat on the back to our entire team, our coaching staff, our entire organization,” Jones said. “We strongly, strongly support the flag. In every way, we support — it’s almost ridiculous to be saying it — the people that for generations and generations have given it all up so we can get out here and show off in front of millions of people on television. We respect that so much. That’s the real business.

“The forum of the NFL and the forum on television is a very significant thing. I’m for it being used in every way we can to support the great, great contributors in our society and that’s people that have supported America, the flag, and there’s no reason not to go all out right there. For anybody to use parts of that visibility to do otherwise is really disappointing.”
