Coca-Cola pulled its sponsorship of a television special. The networks it's went ballistic Cassidy who fled to Hawaii. He did this thing that he really shouldn't have done and got in deep trouble for it says Leibovitz in retrospect I feel sad. But since the shoot.

I think you do wonder. Arm where is stores orders. Not about the president this is about via felt a note in an era. President tweeting out today. If you're not where the NFL is now considering. Consider. Leaving the athletes in the locker room. During the National Anthem and can you remind me who said that should be what they do about four weeks ago I was may now. Yes no. Who well who set burst. You might hide mentioned it but I think as parts in between trump expresses belief. That remaining in the locker room would not be much of an improvement and took a shot at him told commissioner Roger Goodell. Let's outlet to trump NFL dispute get away here trump subset. In what he wanted to be an NFL cornerback in the eighties it wouldn't let him he ended up buying USFL team the New Jersey generals US of oil crumbled. Trump has always had a thorn in his side via fail at this has nothing to do with that. But he is kind of leading the charge that I think a lot of people have taken on. A bow. The athletes amp amp for a reason to maybe it's in part because the president. Maybe it's a part because of the athletes in. GQ didn't help when Miami can't carry permit them man of the year. Up. This is the controversy for whatever reason won't go away. Is brawl. With leaving. The athletes in Malacca. Not like. I asked at the beginning of this controversy. Do we have to play the anthem at the beginning of a sports. Activity when did that start we looked up it was factoring. The war and believe is back during from. The first Persian gulf war back in the early corrects. When this country was consumed I think impart. Because we had one were wild. And also impart. Because of collective guilt. Over Vietnam fifteen years sixteen years prior shark that this country became extremely patriotic. I can remember. That night that the war ended I was in layups and there were people riding up and down the streets the neighborhood streets. Honking their horn. Waving American flags out there and go oh my god Lee Greenwood have the number one hit in America that week it was incredible it was an incredible show. All of patriotism. Sony says it is not about the flag but it is and it is. I am I assume you're signs. I understand so why not just vote just as the owners is the owners the right. Yes although I would argue the commissioner. Could just. Acquire. Paine were not going to have them be athletes out on the field during the National Anthem. Use that time to go over your game plan some more right we don't need this congress that we don't want it it's hurting us. Let's move past it. I don't have prominent. And missile hall. Why don't have to make it startled no one's not coming no one thought it was going to morph into this large. National conversation. That is why this is Scott would you leave your kids at home because they act out in public or would you discipline your kids and make them mind you better. These are much for a these are employees. How well. And I I pointed this out. Name one other business all of that may be being in the military police or fire. Where they played the National Anthem or do the pledge of allegiance and you are ex pact. To stand up and if you don't you could get fired from your job. Other than sports. He can't the military police and fire notwithstanding you could even say Scott education did you do it usually is their morning moment. Have a teacher decided not to stand up when bad teacher before I would argue. This is not a tradition. Tim mean Scott. This is only been around since the first Persian gulf war and I say you either get rid of the pomp and circumstance which in some cases the NFL. Is accepting money for. Or you tell the players wait a locker room to get arts. It's says once again. It's moved to solve all the protests and on the issue causing it racists now I think we should we do need we absolutely do need to continue. The conversation. About oppression and racism in America. But if the owners wanna move on from this truly one of the law you shut it down and you tablet players are saying and locker. This is a taxer and by the way it takes a little bit more of your racist. Carrick simmered. Davis. But this isn't about solving the issue that some of these players think underlies. Their protests. This is about the NFL as a business that is suffering impart not exclusively. Because it is considered to be an unpatriotic. Week. For whatever reason. I still watch the I love. I don't care if everybody on the sidelines said I don't care I'm still gonna watch a bunch of grown men in tights try to attack. I love football. 576779. Native you guys wanna wait and 5767798. The president is being Smart. Cedars the government saying nice he's being Smart he recognizes. That this is an issue that his base to have for hours. They love. This. Debate. And so he keeps bringing up which keeps whenever the president mentions anything whether it's Lamar ball war. This. His base eats it up and the president because of who he is can keep certain things in the news. Probably a lot longer. Than they need to be. And that's why we have a talking about it and is because the president keeps it in the news he had not tweeted about this morning I probably would be talking about it's back. But the NFL is considering telling the players stay in the locker. Let's just forget about this controversy this is dull and it is by the way. It's almost laughable how dumb this controversy it's. It's really. Summers is I love football to grow in my country more. OK so you you're not watching football so did we not love our country before the Persian gulf war when regions. Sing the National Anthem before football and let me ask you this is is not even something it has been around for hundreds of years that is somehow. You know woven into the fabric of America this is a relatively needed to believe it or not tradition. Ask you this text her if you don't stand up for the National Anthem you're arguing I think that that means you don't like your country. Can you be a Christian and our go to church. I would argue current. Absolutely can so you have to stand for the National Anthem to be patriotic but George go to church to be a Christian. Dot. And let me remind you when we were less patriotic. Before the federal government paid NFL teams to make it look like they were patriotic. Keep in mind your government spent your money. 24 hours NFL teams and NASCAR and others to appear more patriotic than they truly world. It took money for. The chiefs were among them. They took money from the federal government didn't tell you about it. Then they had military people unfurl. Huge American flags over the field. The cheeks loved. When they're paid 50000 dollars to. Them with the chiefs have unfurled a gigantic Denny's flag. Over the field if they weren't being paid 50000 dollars. If you should be mad at anybody should be that team. Not the players. They took the teams took your money. You're taxpayer money to appear more patriotic than they work that didn't bother you that didn't insult your sensibility. Weeks. I 76779.

Attract police brutality. In the community. That all possible. Populate the victory in the country. But it didn't feel a little bit. I. Wells may Dick Cavett Thanksgiving while some different. Out there I think. The National Anthem has been played for years. Of football players started coming out for it. After the first Persian gulf war. Stephen Lee summit host Steve. I ST. Yeah out. I I call and let you read about political war. International amp I don't know that it measured out. It's what the players started coming out during the gulf. I'm now they they've been doing it I would chip. And I'm. So. Does not the last time we talked about. I don't always find every. Internet. All city. Yeah sure I think. About to build a seven.

Before the president and not to make does that trump thing but I wanna take home minimal this Tripoli was. More. Do you view the the week and before the president tweeted out about this to use that as a wag the dog distraction. From other issues that he was facing the Russian investigation primarily being at the weekend before. Donald Trump. Tweeted out for the first time. His opposition to players kneeling. During the National Anthem Steve how many players Neil that weekend prior. Are there were three. I mean don't don't get me wrong I'm on trial ban but I do wish somebody argues the. A he created this controversy. That was already died it was the controversy was almost nonexistent. When Donald Trump tweeted about it to take attention away from the problems he was having with the Russian investigation. Hope that there at the time that he did that they keep he thought maybe he could stop it. Instead of just using it. But Steve people would stop talking about it with the the the players who were doing it were. Bench warmer is primarily college cabinet was already out of the league and black balled by all the teams. Trump created this controversy when it was already dead. He resurrected the controversy. To take attention away from his own problems. I'm not I'm not gonna argue point. You know I I don't know that he'd get it to take attention away a little problem. But I do know whether or. He threw gasoline dying fire technical Steve according to the widely circulated image that said did you know before 2009 NFL players did not stand in the locker room. Slopes looked into. And found. While it is true NFL players were not required to be on the field for the National Anthem before 2009. They have always had the option to stand on the sidelines during the playing of the star spangled banner. So it's. Semi true. If that makes sense that they could stand that they were required to stand prior to a nine. Our 767798. To the newsroom here is Carol remarks.
