Matthew Stafford’s Wife Puts The Anthem Protesters on Blast

In an Instagram post, Matthew Stafford’s wife puts the anthem protesters on blast. It’s a safe bet Matt Stafford will stand for the anthem all season.

Kelly Stafford stood up for what she believes in with her Instagram post on Wednesday. She wrote:

“If you think the country can be better, stand for the ideal. If you think the answer is people showing unity, stand with them. The anthem is not the national police song. The anthem is not the national racists song. The anthem is an exercise in how this country can endure and rise, how we can agree on its future potential, even while struggling with its present.

The anthem’s words depict a flag that is suffering through bombs and rockets. You could easily view those bombs and rockets as the challenges our democracy faces today, and the flag a symbol of rising above them.” -Mitch albom

I’ve been hesitant to talk about this, as I know I will get backlash from it.. but I believe we can stand and show our unity against everything that doesn’t represent what this flag stands for.

Let’s stand united against terrorists, against racism, against white supremacists, against killing of cops, against police brutality, against sex slave trafficking.. against anything that is not the ideal for this country.

Let’s unite in the fact that God made us all unique and different and that is something we should cherish. You can disagree with me and that is totally ok.. let’s use this forum to discuss (not yell at each other) and listen to one another.

The patriotic post also appropriately had an image of the American flag.

In a time when NFL players find it cool to kneel or sit during the anthem, it’s good to see someone stand up and be a proud American. Even though Marshawn Lynch and others will continue protesting, there are many, many more that are proud of this country.

It would not be a wise move for Stafford to kneel or sit during the anthem. Unless he wants a one way ticket to the doghouse.
