Will you boycott the NFL if players kneel during the national anthem?

It's been four years since Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and it may be coming back. Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson said he plans to kneel like Kaepernick during the upcoming NFL season. Some fans have already turned their backs on him and the NFL by just saying that. Others have voiced their support of NFL, especially after the league admitted fault in how it handled kneeling in the past. Will you be boycotting the NFL? 🏈

After Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem in 2016, NFL viewership dropped. The league should expect people to tune the league out if players kneel in 2020 as well.

Some fans turn to the NFL as a distraction from the world's problems. They may be fully aware of the problems and are working towards correcting them, but they don't need to be reminded of it when they are watching football. 

If players kneel, the NFL should expect to lose some fans.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran sits down with The Ringer's Tyler Tynes to breakdown whether Black quarterbacks are treated fairly in the NFL.

People didn't listen to Colin Kaepernick until more people died and protests got more violent. Maybe this time around, people won't ignore players who kneel.

The national anthem and the flag of the United States are just words and cloth. If the ideals those words and cloth represent aren't being respected, then kneeling (a respectful gesture) shouldn't be looked at as uncivil.

People need to be supporting these players.
