If you've ever been to a live pro sports event, then you likely know that fans can have very different reactions to the things that the players do.
There could be cheers, whistling, and applause; or there could be boos and heckling.
As of recently, ever since professional athletes started thinking that we cared about their political opinions, sports has gone downhill.
In addition, anyone who has paid any attention the past several years knows that kneeling during the national anthem is a contentious issue with people on either side having strong opinions.
Reggie Cannon who plays as the defender for the Major League Soccer team FC Dallas, couldn't figure out why fans were booing the teams when they took a knee during the National Anthem at the start of a recent game. In fact, he ended up lashing out at the fans.
After the game Cannon said,
“You can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It’s baffling to me. As a team, we try to give the best possible product on the field and these last six months have been absolute hell for us. Absolute hell.”
Cannon later continued,
“We had someone chanting U.S.A., but they don’t understand what kneeling means. They don’t understand why we’re kneeling. They can’t see the reason. They think we’re the ignorant ones. It’s incredibly frustrating. I’m sorry to have this tone, but you have to call it for what it is.”
Critics of kneeling would likely be quick to point out that Cannon and his teammates are indeed being the ignorant ones. From their perspective, they pay money to go to sporting events for entertainment and to get away from the troubles of everyday life—not to have the troubles follow them and be put on display front and center. They don’t want to go and have someone who is paid hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars a year just to play a game tell them about the injustices of society. In addition, several of the people attending sporting events find kneeling for the anthem to be disrespectful.
This isn't hard to figure out. Let me spell it out as simply as I can...
We don't give a crap about your politics! We pay you to entertain us by playing sports, not being a political activist.
