Nebraska regent wants players kicked off team for kneeling during anthem

Nebraska regent wants players kicked off team for kneeling during anthem

On Saturday, three Nebraska football players continued the trend of players kneeling during the National Anthem. Thus far, the reaction has been mostly negative.

Nebraska senior linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey, who was one of the three players that knelt, told the media Monday about the racist feedback hes been receiving since his decision prior to Nebraskas game against Northwestern. A regent at Nebraska added fuel to the fire Tuesday by calling for these three players to be kicked off the team.

Hal Daub, the man behind this claim, spoke to the Lincoln Journal Star and had plenty of criticism for the three Husker players.

Its a free country. They dont have to play football for the university either.

They know better, and they had better be kicked off the team. They wont take the risk to exhibit their free speech in a way that places their circumstance in jeopardy, so let them get out of uniform and do their protesting on somebody elses nickel.

Okay, Hal. First off, you bring up the idea of free speech and then quickly squash that idea about two words later. Last time I checked, these athletes have just as much of a first amendment right as you do, despite your difference in beliefs.
