The NFL has come under heavy criticism after the recent few days of protests with almost all the teams dishonoring the Flag and our National Anthem. It was a welcome surprise when the Legends Football League (formerly Lingerie Football League) stunned the Nation with their response to the NFL.
Here’s what they had to say about taking a knee during the Anthem.
“The LFL recognizes everyone’s First Amendment right to protest, but our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred. Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice, so that our flag and anthem continue in all its majesty.
“The Flag symbolizes all the blood, sweat, and tears that have been shed so that we as Americans can raise our flag across our nation. The LFL salutes all those who make this the greatest country in the world.”
“We stand in salute of our flag.”
The league put out a message and video on Twitter. Here’s that full response.
