Cleveland police, EMS unions refuse to hold flag at game after Browns players kneel

CLEVELAND-- There is new fallout from the fierce debate over Cleveland Browns players kneeling during the national anthem.

Cleveland safety forces have backed out of a plan to hold a large flag on the field for the opening game.

A dozen Browns players created a firestorm during a recent preseason game by not standing during the anthem. They created the largest demonstration in the NFL during the anthem since former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick started his protest more than a year ago.

Just another thing that proves most people do not know what certain things mean. Kneeling is a sign of deep respect; an act of submission, reverence and a whole lot more - Kneeling

They are protesting by kneeling, which is their right as represented by the flag, and they are showing a deeper respect and reverence to what the flag represents, then the people pitching a fit over the act.

The past and current spats of kneeling by pro-footballers does not upset me and I'm looking at it from the perspective of retired military.
