Should the NFL require players to stand during the National Anthem?

Another weekend another protest, there were a few over the weekend with the what started off as peaceful protests in St Louis ended up in violence and the continuation of protesting on the field has many professional foolball players taking a knee during the National Anthem.  Did Colin Kaepernick start something that will continue for the ages, I believe that he may have.  Do you think that NFL players or anyone for that matter have the right to sit out during the National Anthem?  I think that he absolutely does have the right to do so, but we also see that he isn’t playing this year either.  Reports say that he wants to play, I guess time will tell if he does. There are lots of other players who are choosing not to stand or acknowledge the singing of the National Anthem The NFL went more to the point: “Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the National Anthem.”  I saw something go around on Facebook yesterday encouraging fans to protest the games because of this, I wonder how many did.  I didn’t watch the game last night, not out of protest but because NBC wouldn’t come in.
