A couple UNM players about to become pretty popular on twitter

Recommended Posts

They took a knee during the anthem against Air Force. I'd imagine some people might have something to say about that.

UNM never comes out for the anthem but they do when we play AFA at home. Should have stayed in. I know a lot if Lobo ticket holders who said they'll cancel if this happens. I for one will spend my money elsewhere.

This kneeling during the anthem garbage is ruining the game of football for me.

You guys are too sensitive.  It's 2 minutes of a whole 4+ hour experience, just ignore it. It will eventually go away.

Be fair now. When you saw that kid kneeling, you also saw a couple behind him with their hands over their hearts. I am not thrilled by it, but not outraged either.

Amor, teams weren't scheduled to be on the field during the anthem. Lightning changed that.

Doesn't matter how long it is, frankly I don't tune in to football games to see political statements being made by players.

Standing for the anthem is as much a political statement as kneeling is.

I don't go to a game for the anthem.

Saying you support America, through word or through actions (standing at attention during the anthem) is a political statement. Positive political statements are still political statements, not just critical ones.

Who gives a shit? It's phucking football. Until you've spent time in the dirt avoiding rounds meant for you, phuck off. Freedom of Speech is still a thing in this great republic. Come at me when you see your friend holding his guts in. Until then you can blow me.
