It’s not about the song. Which it could be. It’s not about the taking a knee. Not making a big to-do about a man’s right to speak his peace and then being blackballed… Or even about dishonoring Vets.

This, to me, is about the children, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters and cousins of Veterans and NFL players being murdered without appropriate repercussions/corrections, by officials in blue, the country that permits it, the NFL and NFLPA endorsing it by silence.

And as much as I love football. A Redskins fan since the Otto Graham days. I will not watch until Colin K. has a job and the NFL admits it was wrong.

This may be my Fantasy of football.
