The protests against the national anthem caused a lot of problems.
Firstly, they caused problems for the organization and secondly, for the whole country.
There were many ways of demonstrating their dissatisfaction, hoping for the fall of the country.
This Friday, during a rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump talked about the disrespect that the whole country was witnessing. The disrespect of the flag by default means not respecting the country, nor the system in it. This statement pissed off the protestors even more. Whole teams didn’t show up on matches and even those who did, kneeled during the national anthem.
Now, except the NFL related people, like fans and players, more people from different sports are taking part of it. This Saturday, Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry, made some rude comments about going to the White House. Bruce Maxwell, Oakland Athletics catcher also decided to protest the national anthem, being the first MLB player to support this cause.
But don’t get moody just yet! There are still good people in this country. For an example the NASCAR. Their involvement in the situation is completely different from the others, according the IJR During the Monster Energy Cup Series, there were no reported protests. The reason behind this behavior are the strong rules for the drivers. NASCAR sent out multiple warnings to the crews.
Richard Petty, a owner of an NASCAR team, told the Associated Press about their way of functioning: “Anybody that won’t stand up for the anthem ought to be out of the country. Period. What got ’em where they’re at? The United States.” Another owner, Richard Childress followed up his statement: “It’ll get you a ride on a Greyhound bus. Anybody that works for me should respect the country we live in. So many people gave their lives for it. This is America.”
This is the proper way of stopping the problem before it even starts. This is how everyone who is in sports organizations should handle this type of problems. Instead of allowing the players to do what they want, they should tighten up the rules and the sentences for this kind of action. That’s the only solution!
