Jones has class and patriotic pride.

All this kneeling bs is just whiny, race-baiting, juvenile crap to push a false narrative that blacks are somehow oppressed in this country.

Millionaire black dudes cryin' 'bout oppression....

Stawp.

I understand it. I know many people wouldn't appreciate going to a McDonalds or some other business and the employees while on the clock and on company property decided to protest something.

I doubt it will happen but I would love if the entire team knelt. Call his bluff. What's he going to do, concede the game?

The difference is that a protest during lunch service would be disruptive of the work day, holding up customers and their orders. Kneeling for a song and/or in front of a flag before the game begins doesn't disrupt the game, the thing people paid to to watch.

Mandating reverence to a symbol of a nation founded on freedom isn't showing that symbol or that nation respect.

So you are saying as long as those political messages were on their shirts or caps and therefor not preventing them from doing their jobs you wouldn't mind it? Like if employee's shirt or cap shirt had a political message on it that you found disrespectful it would be alright with you as long as that employee was still able to serve coffee, bring your food to you or help you with some item in the store?

I don't know if you have a job or not but employers have rules in how an employee conducts themselves while on the clock and on company property. Heck sometimes what you do off the clock can get you fired like that principal in Louisiana who dressed up as a biker and went to a protest protesting the removal of a confederate statue or flag.

What a bowl of farts! The players dressing up like c;owns and throwing pies in each other's faces don't disrupt the game either, but I didn't pay to watch that spectacle, much less the spectacle of rich weenies doing some silly protest.

Nope, didn't say that. Wearing provocative clothing during service would be disruptive. The athletes are protesting before the game begins.

They do their protest quite publically, in their uniforms. Wearing their uniforms means they are acting as a representative of the company.
