I am not a football fan in general (but my wife is/was a near fanatic) but we will have nothing to do with any of them or any of their sponsors that continue to support any such actions. 
My wife and I spent a combined tremendous amount of our lives serving this country and know too many folks that gave their all for this country to accept anyone who disrespects the country or the symbols that represent our country. 

I fully support anyone their right to free speech and their demonstration of what ever they want to, in any way they want to. 

HOWEVER

I also support my and every other honorable individual the right to withhold their support of those folks and the sponsors that continue to support them with ads.  A complete boycott of sponsors is an appropriate response.  The owners know that and are trying to figure out how to control the little children they are try to herd into grownup behavior.  The problem is those players in many cases do not even know what they are really trying to accomplish.  They are being manipulated by forces that have an agenda and are using the players who for the most case are great athletes but not that smart and definitely not very mature.

IMHO
I don't watch pro sports!

NFL players are todays modern Gladiators, actors in a very large venue.  Gladiators were the circus (food stamps are the bread).  Traditionally entertainers are not high on the social scale.  High livers with a short life span.  Rebeling did not end well for them.   The Roman army chased them all across Italy, suffered a few defeats but eventually they taken and were crucified along the roads of Rome.

I read somewhere that support for the NFL is either down 34% or is down to 34%.  Those spoiled players really screwed up and stepped over the line.  It seems people are protesting shit that don't even exist.  Like feminists (feminazis) protesting for women's rights.  WTF over?

I have not watched an NFL game since my sone moved out over 15 years ago and most definitely have no interest with the disrespect they have displayed to our Flag and those who have fought and died for it.

If they felt so strongly about it why is it they are doing this now and not while Obama was in office?

Because with a half black president there was no problems with anything, anywhere.  It's all about race these days it seems.  And Obama had the balls to say that race relations have never been better, as he was leaving office.  Unbelievable.
