“The constitutionally guaranteed 'freedom to be intellectually ... diverse or even contrary,' and the 'right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order,' encompass the freedom to express publicly one's opinions about our flag, including those opinions which are defiant or contemptuous.”
-- Supreme Court of the United States in Street v. New York (1969)
The mess that Kaepernick started by choosing to target the flag and the National Anthem has definitely hurt the NFL and the teams. Some sponsors are pulling out, but more important the fans are turned off. We always say "It may be your right, but that doesn't make it right."
C'mon man. We Stand Up!
