Well, the NFL may be a lost cause right now thanks to the incredible mismanagement of Roger Goodell, but luckily the NBA has a VERY different outlook on flag kneelers (and concussions).
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver stepped forward last night to let the public know that NBA teams ALWAYS stand for the anthem and respect the troops no matter the politics.
“It’s been a rule as long as I’ve been involved with the league, and my expectation is that our players will continue to stand for the anthem,” Silver said, according to The Associated Press.
“Many of our players have spoken out already about their plan to stand for the anthem. And I think they understand how divisive an issue it is in our society right now.”
It looks like Silver was quick to see the anti-NFL backlash and immediately reached out to all the team owners to get backing on this. It’s a shame Goodell isn’t half as clever as Silver.
It’s fine for NBA players to dislike Trump. It’s their constitutional right to voice that opinion. I’m just grateful that they are gonna be treating out National Anthem with the respect it deserves.
Let’s show the NFL what leadership looks like by sharing this around all over the place. It’s time for us to take back sports from the SJWs.
