Players are ungrateful

The highly paid spoiled football players need to promote their platform elsewhere. They have a life 99 percent better than we do. They have the benefits of being American given them by those who sacrificed for the country and the flag. They have it very, very good. There is no other country where they could enjoy their profession as they do here. They ruin the sport by this effort, so they should voice their causes on talk shows and in ads, books, editorials, etc. Free speech is their right given by the brave. Sports should be free from political ideals. The owners need to run their businesses as a sport.

The Supreme Court judge from The Cleveland Browns area said it best: “My football season is now over.”
