DAN’S MESSAGE OF THE DAY | MONDAY, OCTOBER 16

The National Football League’s national anthem protests are continuing and so is the controversy.  Some stadiums were half empty at kick-off of Sunday’s games and others were still half empty by halftime.  And now, the new owner of the Miami Marlins, Derek Jeter, has weighed in on the controversy.  While refusing to say what he would do, because he is no longer a player, Jeter added the following:

“The thing that I think is frustrating, this whole rhetoric that is going back and forth. People lose sight of the fact of why someone was kneeling,” said Jeter. “They’re focused so much on the fact that they are kneeling as opposed to what they’re kneeling for. Peaceful protests are fine. You have your right to voice your opinion. As long as it’s a peaceful protest, everyone should be fine with that.”
