PRE GAME POLITICS
Of course, displays by some players in the NFL during our national anthem has, unfortunately, become the focus of our football Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays. Honestly, I’m angered that I’m responding to these actions and giving it even more attention. But many of you have asked my opinion and I’d like to respond to your comments and requests.
I would hope the Dolphins would come together and decide as a team on how to address their behavior for the pre game festivities. If they can’t decide to participate as a team then Coach Gase could step in and not bring them back on the field (after pre game warm ups) until it was time to play thus eliminating their presence altogether from pre game celebrations.
Split behavior tears at the very fabric of “teamwork.” This is what a “team” should be all about! Pro sports are a national pastime for all Americans where we set aside our political beliefs and come together to compete as Americans. Let’s keep personal politics out of sports.
