Letter to the editor: Disrespecting the national anthem is a slap in the face

We are the greatest country in the world. Our rights and freedoms are what makes us great. Why would any player be allowed to slap our country in the face and disrespect our national anthem? American companies pay them to play and offer them everything. I really think that any protesting should be done outside of the stadium.

Can we really ignore this act of disrespect? How do others feel about this? Our armed forces give their lives to protect our freedoms. Isn't time we respect them, as well?
