    Easy solution for the National Anthem "question" for the players ......

    First Post Banner
    They stand and lock arms.

    They please the "righties" because they are standing. They please the "lefties" because they are locking arms. And they please the "moderates" because it's both.

    And the locking arms effectively replaces the holding hands as our kids did under Noodles as it continues to show team unity.

    If the basketball team disrespects our flag as the football team did, I will no longer support the team just as I have stopped supporting the football team at this point.

    Why stop there? Might as well not support the university at all since the UNM president backed Davie and his players. Gonna be a boring Saturday and Sunday since it looks like you won't be supporting any football team.

    while i disagree (especially after listening to the players) with your assertion that the football team "disrespected" the flag, I totally support your right to that opinion and your right to support or not support whatever team you think is warranted - imo, that is what the flag represents which is what is actually important.

    You have the right to do as you please. And as the players I have the right to do as I please. This is why veterans have fought for my freedom of expression. So with that, SEE YA!!!!!

    It's not about pleasing the right, the left, or the moderate. They have been respectful only asking for recognition of a cause and injustice they believe.

    Sounds like you’re jealous that you don’t have a platform to express your opinion and have it taken seriously.

    I don't think he is jealous, just voicing his opinion. Perception is that they are disrespecting our flag and country. The problem is that people forget what it took to preserve our country and make it the wonderful place it is to live where freedom is the greatest thing to have. I love our country and would not trade it for any other.

    That's not my perception. I agree with the rest of youre post however. This is a great country exactly for the reason you point out. We are ALL free to voice our opinion in ways that are not illegal. Veterans (I am one) fought an died for these rights.

    I recall an old saying. Opinions are like butholes. Everyone has one and they all stink...except mine.

    At this point, only an idiot would take this protest against police brutality as a disrespect of flag. But if you feel it's your patriotic duty to boycott, give your tickets to Lobo fan veterans who support the protest.

    Got it. You don't like their methods. But what's more important IMO is their cause. How do you feel about police brutality, particularly against minorities?

    Personally I just prefer to listen to some old Rage Against the Machine if I'm really frustrated. Outside of that, I think it's best to stand up and respect the flag, the soldiers/veterans, your freedom and your country.

    I gotta say it's pretty petty to give up one of your major interests just because some players do something that you dislike for 60 seconds before a game (something that is ultimately harmless). Even worse are the people who refuse to watch on TV, considering the national anthems are rarely ever televised

    Brutality in any form against anyone is unacceptable as is disrespecting our country. Our flag has nothing to do with the brutality. Protest the police if that’s what you want to do.

    If only the guy quoted above would have been a REAL patriot, he'd have disassociated from anyone who disagreed with him.

    When the anthem is televised, I'm curious as to how many people stand in their living rooms.
