I agree, it's gone too far.
I get it was started for a good reason, born out of the post 9/11 patriotism, but now it's a business.
And it's hurting businesses -- the NFL especially.
I'd like things to be scaled back severely. Sometimes sports should just be about the sports.
It's a -lot- harder than that, because that's when (stupid) people make the slippery slope argument of, "Well, what about military appreciation? What about charities? What about other causes?" And then nothing gets solved.
I'm just like...bruh, just ditch the anthem and play.
