I had to do some Google research to know what you were talking about (Olympics? I didn’t follow. Oh, NFL! Nope, still don’t care) but from what quick stuff I read, I agree with you, Mike. That whole democratic principles thing doesn’t work if you don’t allow people to disagree. And from what I read, it was a quiet protest that didn’t diminish anyone else’s enjoyment of the game, while still bringing attention to an issue this guy cares about.
