NFL Players Stage Protest

​Saturday evening, President Trump encouraged owners to fire players who kneel for the national anthem. Kneeling began last season with former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick. While he's gone unsigned for this current season, what's he's started is moving to other sports as well.


NFL players who disagree with the President obtained plenty of support from the media before yesterday's games. Even some NFL owners that helped provide money for the president's campaign have expressed their disappointment over his comments.


Much of the criticism of President Trump is over the issue of race. The problem is, he didn't say anything about it. Instead, he criticized the forum of NFL games to make symbolic, political statements by some players and coaches.


So as NFL owners and players rush to defend the right to protest, the league's corporate partners have remained largely silent.


Before listeners presented their views, Jim had them consider the following:


--Does this behavior disrespect our nation?
--Do you believe it's correct to have political demonstrations on the job?
--Do the players really know what they're protesting?
--Do you believe the NFL should be boycotted?
--What impact do you see this having on the nation?


Comments came from those on both sides of this issue, and you can hear them all when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
