Rapinoe’s bid to kneel for National Anthem thwarted by opposing team
U.S. soccer star and Seattle Reign midfielder Megan Rapinoe was prevented by the opposing team, the Washington Spirit, Wednesday night from kneeling during the National Anthem after the Spirit altered its pregame ceremonies.
The Spirit released a statement prior to the match, saying they would rather move up the Anthem while the teams were off the field than “subject our fans and friends to the disrespect we feel such an act would represent.”
Good thinking on the part of the Washington Spirit soccer team. It may be a good idea if all sporting events in the country followed suit. This way, the rodents are not given the chance to show their disrespect and ignorance!!!
There is more than one way to skin a skunk.
One would think that a guy like Roger the Dodger would be bright enough to think of something as clever as this to circumvent a problem. Maybe the 40 million the NFL pays the dude is not enough for him to get creative.
