Letter: Media should quit paying attention to anthem protests

September 27, 2017

If you ask 15 people what the NFL flag protests are about, you probably would get 15 different answers. I believe that it mostly is a way for the players to get their names in the news and boost their egos.

Want an easy way to stop the irreverence? Stop reporting it. If the networks that broadcast the games would simply turn their cameras toward the flag while the anthem is being played and not show the protesting players, the protesting would probably stop. No TV time, no name mentioning, no ego boost, no more protesting.

I wish the networks would give it a try.
