Players in protest just don’t get it

Don’t you feel sorry for the beleagured NFL players? They are so put upon. Poor babies. They play a 60-minute game once a week and get paid millions of dollars to do so.

When they kneel during the playing of the national anthem, I wonder what they are thinking.

They should be thinking of our troops who have given their lives to keep us free, some not old enough to buy an alcoholic drink.

Do they ever think of the ones who returned home missing limbs, sight or suffering brain injuries? Do they ever think of the agony the families of our wounded warriors are going through?

The answer to these questions is a resounding no.

I wonder what would happen if we all stop watching NFL games and stop buying their paraphernalia. Maybe they’ll all move to another country where they won’t be so put upon. I sure hope so.
