Slippery slope, this is as Un-American as it gets to allow teams to keep their policies would be akin to pouring gas on a fire. Yet the same people who grumble that players are joining the NFL stage to protest have no issue wrapping up that same stage in patriotism—with symbols that mean different things to different people in this culturally diverse society. Like it or not, the convergence of sports and societal issues don’t need to go away. It needs to be accepted. If players are compelled to make solutions—solutions that protest to protest mind set is clearly legitimate and the NFL clout can’t hurt. If players are compelled to make thing right. What NFL owners need to do is adopt the right policy.
