    Why do you think it’s ok for the VP
    To protest by walking out but not for the players to protest by kneeling?
    I get President Trumps Tweets, Somehow I missed all these Tweets you speak off. Please post these Tweets you speak of....
    And VP Pence going has been planned since May right after it was announced that Paytons number was being retired..
    Its not like VP Pence is not connected to Indiana...

    If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play,” Jones said in his postgame interviews. “OK? Understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won’t play. Period. Period.

    What's your actual thoughts on this display? Mine is it's akin to proudly stating your atheism while your hosts are saying grace. I find it to be extremely rude to be disrespectful to publicly mock something that so many people hold in high esteem.
