YES

Yes, all NFL players and professional athletes should stand for the American flag and national anthem.

NO

No, I support their protest against America.

As player protests grip the National Football League, public debate rages between those who feel kneeling for the flag and national anthem is un-American and disrespectful to our military, and those who support the protests.

President Donald Trump’s criticism of the player protests -- initiated by ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick -- and of the NFL itself caused the discussion to take center stage across the nation.
