Wrong place, wrong time

Houston Chronicle - - WORLD -

Re­gard­ing “Trump: ‘About time’ play­ers re­quired to stand for an­them” (Page C5, Thurs­day), NFL play­ers have the right of free speech and to protest. How­ever, not in a venue where fans who have paid big bucks are forced to watch such un­pa­tri­otic be­hav­ior.

Once the play­ers put on their uni­forms to play a game, the own­ers of the teams who pay them ridicu­lous salaries also have the right and re­spon­si­bil­ity as their em­ployer to de­mand that play­ers act in a re­spect­ful man­ner by show­ing re­spect for the flag and our na­tional an­them.

NFL team own­ers need to put an end to this dis­grace­ful be­hav­ior and show some pa­tri­o­tism by con­trol­ling their play­ers. My house­hold will not watch an NFL game or sup­port the NFL in any way. Robert T. Haas, Mis­souri City
