The stupid NFL controversy—Just Stop It!

Let's go back to the pre-Obama days when the players stayed in the locker room and came out after the anthem. The Department of Defense paid 14 NFL teams $5.4 million from 2011 to 2014 to show patriotism during NFL games. It seems many players felt patriotic then with a black president, and don't now, but also the money has dried up (I hope).

Not that the President will listen to me, but there's no reason to give sports millionaires special access to the WH or celebrate with them. Librarians work hard, too, and we were never invited. Just drop this feud. It's going no where. Those guys are talking apples and oranges. They say it's police brutality and the WH says it's the flag and anthem.
