I just read the amusing letter from someone who was critical of President Trump’s comments about the NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem. That, while they were opposed to the idea of kneeling, it was the right of these individuals to do so. In fact it was a constitutional guarantee.

Perhaps the writer of the letter is not a football person, or he would know that if that same player scored a touchdown and celebrated too much in the referee’s opinion in the end zone, he would be flagged with a penalty of 15 yards for excessive celebration. Isn’t it his constitutional right to celebrate his touchdown with out being hindered by a good sportsman’s rule of conduct.
