SANTODONATO, LOUIS MAMO LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER Fall has descended upon us and with it comes the rush of adrenaline for football and its crowds, brimming with enthusiasm for their favorite teams. Unfortunately, the NFL has been mired in controversy lately. Players refusing to stand for the national anthem have not only dampened the spirit of the game, but it is also wreaking havoc on ratings. Just as it’s someone’s right to sit and be disrespectful to this country, it’s also the viewer’s, right to turn the channel. It’s sad to see this handful of misguided millionaires cast such a negative light on the sport and themselves. Maybe they should play football in another country. The problem is that it’s a different shaped ball. What shocks me is how NFL owners are allowing it to go on. Maybe they should take a nod from Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. The players work for the franchise, and the owner of the team has every right to have rules. One rule could be that in this forum you must respect this country and our flag, or you get benched, fined or fired. After all, the NFL is an entertainment sports business, not a place for protests and political grandstanding. That being said, a dialog, a conversation, is preferable instead of all this hate rhetoric that minuscule fringe groups and the drive-by media insite. There is a lack of respect in our country right now, and a lack of reverence for the freedom that allows us to have different opinions, and vast opportunities that our nation affords us. Until, that is, when we face natural disasters and then you see a different side of the residents of our country. The recent hurricanes that hit our shores caused massive devastation, but the way people came together to help their fellow neighbors, and strangers who were in need was a beautiful thing to see. It’s time we stop focusing on what divides us and concentrate on what unites us now more than ever.
