US Soccer Has Had Enough With Players Who Kneel For The Anthem, “Stand Or Pay The Price” Emmanuel March 15, 2017 Sports You Might Like US Soccer has made a new rule not allowing players to kneel for the American anthem, they must stand and show respect. Players will now face undisclosed penalties if they do not follow the rules and show some respect for America. And rightfully so, the reason they have so much freedom to disrespect our country and our flag is because they live in a free country! From awm: In a statement, released on the social media platform Twitter, former pro soccer player Stuart Holden posted a screenshot of the new rule, passed on February 9, that said: “All persons representing a Federation National Team shall stand respectfully during the playing of national anthems at any event in which the Federation is represented.” In a comment accompanying the passage of the new rule, the organization released a statement: “We have an expectation that our players and coaches will stand and honor the flag while the national anthem is played.” Yes, you have a right to protest – when you are on YOUR time, not when you are being paid to represent a team or business. Then technically you are “on the job” and the team owners or business owners have a right to expect certain behaviors from you, or they have the right to let you go. Americans are fed up with all these ridiculous protests. No ones even listening anymore You’re just making yourselves look like whining, sniffling , little brats… oh wait !!! That’s because you are !! Share this if you agree!
