This is so ridiculous. Why does the anthem even need to be played before every game? Save it for the Super Bowl and maybe playoff games. Or just keep the teams off the field until the game starts. I love my country and consider myself a patriotic person but I don’t get why the anthem has to be sung before sporting events. And how many people who are watching on TV at home or at a bar are paying attention to the singing of the anthem except maybe for the Super Bowl? I guarantee you they’re not standing with hand over their chest while it’s being sung. And what about the people in the stadium using the bathroom or getting food/drinks? Are they not patriotic? Do they need to be shamed too? It’s the biggest bunch of nonsense all started by someone who’s still PO’d that he was never able to join the club of NFL owners.
