Thanks to a recent letter writer stating athletes should stand for the national anthem. He is so right, from so many of us, to all the sports players out there. Take some, maybe a year of your salaries and make a real statement! If you want things to change, put your money where your mouth is! Do something positive, be thankful you live and play here in America. Anywhere else you wouldn't get away with being so disrespectful to both our national anthem and the American people.
