How Would You React If A Griz Player Sat For National Anthem?
This is a question that a lot of sports fans are dealing with right now. How would you feel if players on your favorite sports team decided to stay seated while the National Anthem plays before the game begins?
We have all heard about Colin Kaepernick, now Marshawn Lynch has decided to not stand up during the National Anthem now too. Yesterday it got more personal to me as Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks has come out to say that he will stay sitting during the National Anthem this whole upcoming NFL season.
Personally, I don't agree with what they are doing but I understand they are trying to use their platform to make change. I feel like everyone that physically can, should be standing and showing support for our troops that allow us the freedom to enjoy watching sports.
The topic has been rolling around in my head for a few weeks. I will continue to support my Seattle Seahawks in their quest for another Championship but I won't by buying a Michael Bennett jersey anytime soon. Not that I was in the market to buy another jersey soon anyway.
What would you do, how do you think you would react if a Griz player decided to sit during the National Anthem throughout the upcoming season?
