The NFL kneeling controversy shows how undisciplined a sport that is based on discipline has actually begun. If the coaches can’t even get their players to start the game on the right foot then how can they perform at their best when the game is about to begin? Yes many will stay play well individually but if you can unite on the most basic call of standing for your country then how can you truly unite when a controversial call is pulled in by the couch or quarterback? The sport as a whole is now about “individual desires” rather then working as a cohesive unit. So the kneeling controversy isn’t just about unpatriotic voices but an act that lessons the game as a whole and that is another reason people are staying home.
