This follows more than 200 NFL players, including 32 Denver Broncos, who kneeled during the Star Spangled Banner during Sunday and Monday games.

Those players say it’s meant to bring attention to injustice and show unity.

CCU calls the practice disrespectful to the flag.

The school did not say what discipline athletes could face if they don’t stand.

  1. The school should never have to do this. A real coach would just sequester their helmet for the game and run them into the ground during the next week. My guess is in one week the problem would be cured.

  2. Dusty Rhodes says:

    You want to sit on your ass, move up to the stands.

  3. So much for all that liberty in Christ jazz.

  4. Paul Cañada says:

    So, let me get this straight… an act meant to bring attention to inequality and need for unity, a nobel act that we would expect Christians to participate in and support… is being banned by Christians because authorities say it’s disrespectful to the flag, a symbol deserving unquestionable reverence making it an idol, which Christians were commanded not to worship?
