We need not look further than the current opioid epidemic sweeping the nation to understand that while the right to choose is valuable, the choices some of our countrymen make demonstrate obvious lack of rational thought.

"Allowing"?

The NFL is the victim here.
Why don't you use the quote function?

So there was protests on Thursday night football game. You may not know it because they "blacked out" the national anthem from the broadcast. Despicable. Nothing to see here folks move along.

However, despite a potential move by the NFL to disallow protest by players during the national anthem, one thing you would have not seen on TNF on CBS and the NFL Network last night was the playing of the national anthem.

As the controversy over players taking a knee or raising a fist over social injustice shows no signs of abating, the net and the league took a default position and decided not to show the national anthem or the response in Charlotte last night. As social media went into overdrive in reaction, the TV audience did not see the Panthers all stand for the song, nor the Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod each raise a fist into the air with teammate Chris Long appear to show solidarity.
