I wonder if any of the spoiled pigs, who were kneeling during the Anthem the other day, were kneeling for the 13 people murdered by illegal firearms in Chicago, in the span of 2 days?
Mopar, or NO car.

Methinks and they state they are protesting institutional racism, and the data readily validates their claims.

Why do people want to insist that people are not doing exactly what they say they are doing and them condemn them for something that they are not doing? What fear drives them to this? Is it something to do with skin pigmentation?

I find it incredible that some of those from the great land of so called freedom wish to stop some others from expressing their right to that so called freedom.

Hypocrites is what they always turn out to be.

I understand why national flags are a feature of international competitions. And anthems too. But at other games of a regional nature? Not so much.

I mean, if they are there, then the event is already politicised surely?

O Canada played before privately owned Canadian NHL teams games within Canada included?

If so, OK.

Do those supporting political views at a Sporting Event, believe the following is appropriate:

Player's, in their team's uniform, chanting and gesticulating "Trump is Great" or "Trump Sucks" in front of the crowd?

My point is that those encouraging, accepting, or excusing political opinions they agree with at sporting events.

Must also encourage, accept, or excuse the same regarding political opinions they despise.

Do they really believe this?

BTW Canadian posters. O Canada before NHL games inside of Canada, with both privately owned teams from Canada. Must also be considered political and must stop.

Correct?

No.
Even though I'm not a Canadian...
Canada have 7 teams and US 24 teams in the NHL.
The ownerships of them are mostly companies from their own country.
For example. New York Rangers is owned by The Madison Square Garden Company (James Dolan, chairman)
NHL's TV partners are.
Canada: Sportsnet, TVA Sports
United States: NBC/NBCSN, NHL Network, Univision.

Very good!

Eh? Now I don't understand what you are saying.
What political motive should a NHL team have?
For all I know the motive is that teams want to earn more money.

And I never seen a hockey game where players are kneeling when an anthem is played!
Yes. I have seen many including Sweden vs US in a World Cup game live at location.
When I see that Trump want obedience I immediately come to to think of countries like China, Russia and North Korea!

OBW if the opponent of the Canadian Team is a US team they also play the Star Spangled Banner.

Wondering if the National Anthems, for those who believe that the American one played before a game, should be considered political. Are equally wrong to do, and both (American & Canadian) stopped.

Just asking if their, not your nor my belief's, only apply to one Country.

Государственный гимн Российской Федерации

Since some around the world are offended or some cannot stop making political statements. Why not stop the playing of all National Anthems before all private sporting events in the USA, Canada, et al?

The Irish Sharks leading you are also included in your belief.
