Athletes should kneel to kiss the ground of this great land

Letters to the Editor

Andrew Ottoson’s op-ed [Oct. 4 issue] concerning professional football’s player protests prompted me to submit the following comments. I never was a big fan of the NFL to begin with so my low regard for them has dipped even further. By and large they are overpaid, egocentric, petulant, spoiled children. Not to mention ignorant. They haven’t a clue as to what oppression looks like - go to India, Pakistan, Iraq or Afghanistan to witness the real thing. If they’re going to kneel for anything it should be to kiss the ground of this great land that has bestowed upon them so many blessings. I hope their revenues take a giant hit.
