Anti-American, on-field protests need to stop
(Column ~ 09/23/17)
I know it's not very manly, but I don't watch the National Football League games. None.
I follow college and high school football with some degree of enthusiasm though I have to admit that our dear Mizzou is not always on my television agenda despite spending a small fortune to put a couple of kids through that fine institution.
My viewing habits are not a form of boycott against the NFL. But I watch sports for the entertainment value and not a source of social commentary.
And I am far from alone.
Viewership in the NFL has taken a massive nosedive since former quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to boycott the national anthem.
