Want to Solve the National Anthem Controversy? Try Not Playing it So Much in Sports



You know, I've been sitting on this for about two years. I've said it privately for that long, and it's about time I spread the word about this. This whole National Anthem in sports controversy shouldn't be one. It all started when a group of people who wanted to join the k** so badly got so p**sy, prissy, and b***hy over something as simple and small as Colin Kaepernick taking a knee. These same people ignored the message he was spreading, which was awareness of the immense amount of racially charged shootings by police, and made him out to be "anti-American" and accused him of "disrespecting the flag." Ever since then, literally every RWNJ in existence has forced us to worship the anthem like it's the Bible; we can't even blink while it's playing or we'll be branded as being "disrespectful." The whole thing with the anthem in sports is absolutely out of control, and I have the perfect way to solve this. Certain people don't want to hear it, but it has to be said, and here it is:

We should not play the anthem so much during sporting events.

Here's my idea, and I've had this thought for a few years now. The anthem should only be played during the most important sporting events. World Series, Stanley Cup, NBA Finals, and the Super Bowl, of course. All-Star Games, Opening Days, and certain holidays. That's it. Honestly, the Star-Spangled Banner should only be played on those dates anyway. We do not need to hear the anthem during, say Week 3 of the NFL season. I'm as patriotic as the next person, but when I watch a random regular season NHL game, I don't give a flying f**k about the anthem(s). Just drop the damn puck!

And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who thinks this. We do not need to hear the anthem on literally every sports day of the calendar. On those important events I mentioned, yeah. And honestly, a side reason for my proposal is because on those important sports dates, they get real singers to actually sing the anthem. On other days, we see team employees and other randos try to sing it, and nine times out of ten, they butcher it. Now that is un-American. It's amazing. Freedom of expression is part of the U.S. Constitution. Kaepernick's peaceful protest was 100% constitutional. The b***hing against it isn't. Yet ironically, the racist f**ks who ranted against Kaepernick and tried to force him to "comply" and stand for the anthem are doing the very thing they're falsely accusing him of doing:  disrespecting America. You want this whole anthem controversy to end? How about scaling back on the anthem just a tad?

This blog is right on point about that anthem being played too much. It should be used less.

Scaling back is unlikely to happen. What changes do you suggest if it isn't scaled back?
