Disrespect causes reader to skip Super Bowl

My favorite sport is football. However, I will not be watching the Super Bowl this year for the first time since Super Bowl I.

I don’t care if you are a professional athlete, teacher, lawyer, laborer, engineer or anyone else, if you can’t respect our flag, national anthem and country, you will never have my attention or support.

There are many ways to protest, but showing disrespect of our country is not one of them.
