Do you support the First Amendment or not? Yes. OR. No.
At that time, most English Americans supported England. It was lack of representation in Parliament that they were protesting.

The original Constitutional restriction on establishing a religion applied to the Federal government only. Freedom of speech and press does have restrictions. Peaceful protest also has requirements.

Did you serve? I did.

I sacrificed so that people could protest.

Peacefully protesting, no matter what form it takes, does not have restrictions.

The red represents the blood shed by soldiers. So protesting it is bad.

What a surprise, another RWer getting history wrong.

USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - What do the colors of the Flag mean?

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution authorizing a committee to devise a seal for the United States of America. This mission, designed to reflect the Founding Fathers' beliefs, values, and sovereignty of the new Nation, did not become a reality until June 20, 1782. In heraldic devices, such as seals, each element has a specific meaning. Even colors have specific meanings. The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for The Stars and Stripes when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated:

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."

I believe what you're doing is called unlawful termination.
For almost every action there is an equal reaction. The football team owners are recognizing that. If the flag and anthem represents America as a whole, disrespecting either is a poor way of protesting the minority of bad actors. Proper venue is just as important as the issue being protested.

Try telling that to officials in a city or state. Proper permits are usually required.
