RE: In the NFL, it takes bravery to be respectful to our country
I will assume you are a troll because you pretend to think people are honoring a piece of material woven into a flag.

The national anthem is showing your love and respect for your country. Its not saying your country has no faults or does nothing wrong. People honoring this country know there are many things the government might do that they think are wrong, but they still love and honor this country.

Do you get it now?

Now if you really are disgusted with and hate this country and feel you can't show it honor and respect, then by all means sit down. But do it on your own time, not when you are being paid indirectly by all the fans who still love the country.

The *real* disrespect IMHO comes when the SSB--our *national anthem*--is played to commemorate something as trivial as a sporting event.
