The difference between their place of employment and most peoples jobs is simple. It is a ball game for the entertainment of fans and players. I don't think it is the time and place for the protest, but they are not protesting our country or the veterans who served. I believe when Kaprenick started this bs he did it to protest what he felt was racial divide being reinforced by the leader of our country, and being on tv he could get others to follow suit. Then all was forgotten he was off the team and not getting a job. A couple other players started to follow suit and our president starts tweeting that NFL players not standing for the flag should be fired. That was like throwing gas on a fire. He not only got Kaprenick followers fired up, but stuck his nose where it doesn't belong. Then the next thing you know everybody's kneeling for solidarity of their team, their friends, and their rights. If we start saying how one should act if they are not breaking the law, next thing you know Trump will have a statue built we have to bow to. Those men weren't hurting anyone and they have great respect for our country and the men that served. Trump should be banned from twitter is what I think.
