The NFL continues to lose fans because of the players and owners kneeling during the anthem, an action interpreted by many as disrespecting the nation.
New York Times:
Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an N.F.L. game in his home state of Indiana on Sunday after nearly two dozen players on the visiting San Francisco 49ers knelt during the playing of the national anthem.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Mr. Pence wrote on Twitter after the Indianapolis Colts and 49ers had begun their game.
Mr. Pence’s departure, which he documented in a series of tweets, may reignite a firestorm started by President Trump, who said last month that any “son of a bitch” who refused to stand for the anthem should be “fired.” His comments led hundreds of players to protest during the anthem.
