I'm betting they're thrilled that they listened to whomever coaxed them along now. :rolleyes:

So 1st they chose to disrespect the flag/anthem for their protest. Then 2nd, the coach was ordered to stop by the executive board, and he refused. Then 3rd, the players refused to attend practice until he returned.

All got EXACTLY what they should have.

After taking a knee, young boys saw their football coach suspended then their whole season canceled

A Beaumont youth football team ended its season early Tuesday following its decision to protest the national anthem before games.

The Beaumont Bulls, a team of 11- and 12-year-old boys, first kneeled during the anthem in protest of what they say is unjust treatment of minorities in the U.S. before a Sept. 10 game, the Beaumont Enterprise reported.

"How can you not feel some kind of way about someone on the news getting shot down by police?" one coach asked during an interview with The Bleacher Report. "How can you be so comfortable with injustice that you don't want to do anything?"

After their initial protest, the players and coaches received death threats and hate mail, according to The Bleacher Report. Head coach Rah-Rah Barber told the Enterprise that people told him he should be hanged.

The protest, modeled after 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest, had been approved by the players' parents, Barber said.

The coach was removed from his position by the Bulls' executive board three weeks after disobeying an order to not take a knee. The board said he created a "hostile mood" at a team meeting.

Players then protested the coach's dismissal and did not attend practice until he returned.

And the cancer grows and grows..
Idiots that have not the IQ to investigate and understand how this is a false accusation , promoted by media, dems/libs/socialists and blacks..
They want this to birth a revolutionary movement in this nation. They want this to destroy Trump.
They want this ffing crap to eventually give them power! To eventually let minorities rule over the majority.
Not a damn ounce of care for the truth and the RULE OF LAW..
Couching this lying movement as a free speech issue! And ffing morons believing that it is!!!
Thanks to 50+ years of progressively worse liberal/dem designed public education system... -Tyr

Well, at least not the kids will learn and understand respect, and that not following rules and demands of teachers and authorities at school has repercussions. Too many anymore do as they please and then get coddled in addition.
