I agree that the disrespect for our Nations flag is alarming but I don't think the NFL is really suffering in ratings (at least not to the point that they would fire Roger).

Boycott the SF 49ers for letting him act like an idiot, seems to be already happening anyway.

I respect famous athletes for taking a stand on the wrongs of the world. They are very powerful symbols, and if anyone can create change it is our athletes. Now I do not agree with them on the flag issue, but I cannot sit here and say they need to wield their influence to create change, and then tell they cannot do it for something I do not agree with. 

To this day, I have little respect for Michael Jordan, at one time one of the most powerful people on the planet. What did he do with that influence.......nothing.
