Kneeling During The National Anthem: The Debate (https://goo.gl/gHY4DT)

You might have heard the discussion recently about #NFL players kneeling during the singing of the National Anthem. If you are scratching your head wondering what we are talking about then let us bring you up to speed. During a recent football game, players from the Seattle Seahawks and the Dallas Cowboys took a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustice and police relations with the African-American community.

Later, a debate began after President Trump tweeted suggesting those who knelt during the singing of the national anthem should be fired.

So, is it a fireable offense?

This debate has sparked our attention and the legal questions that it brings up.

Firstly, under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution individuals have the right to exercise free speech. So, in this case, the players who kneeled during the national anthem are protected under the First Amendment.

However, it does bring into question did the players break an employment law? Our recent blog entry goes into more detail:

Under the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, or CBA, with the NFL Player's Association, all individuals covered by the CBA can be terminated when they engage in "conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the National Football League." Arguably, this would include those who kneel during the national anthem. However, terminating a player for taking a knee during the national anthem while not terminating other players who engage in severe off-field activity like sexual assault and drug possession would open a major court case.

This case shows just how complex employment law can be. If you want to find out more, click the link above to read our blog post.

You've got to be kidding! If this is the case I won't be going to see this movie. For the love of God why would this be necessary? Star Wars isn't supposed to be about promoting gay or lesbian lifestyles. It's supposed to be about good vs evil. Am I wrong? Hollywood please stop promoting these lifestyles to our children! It isn't necessary! Stop being typical Hollywood Hypocrites!

"Ugh...Seeing so many versions of Spider-Man gives me some sort of flashback to when the Jackal forced his hand and cloned a literal army of Peter several years ago. Ben was there, he would remember. The odd thing is, Ben is here too. Which is...unsettling. He's always remained dead on Earth-616, the world where we're from. Wait, are there two Ben's? Forget about it, Kaine...There's more important things at hand. We were all dragged into this mess due to totem eating vampires hunting our kind. Hunting the Spider-Men and Women of the multiverse. Parker dragged me along to save them all, even though we know none of them. They shouldn't matter to us. But what gets me is how Peter mentioned that some of them are us. That they have the same structure; almost the same back story of us, just executed in a different manner. They are us...And they aren't us. They aren't me. My name is Kaine, and there may be many versions of Parker out there in the multi verse, some taking up the title of Spider-Man who aren't Peter, but there's one thing I know for sure...and that's the fact that I'm not Peter Parker. My destiny will be mine and mine alone. If I get killed in all of this conflict, I'll. just have to haunt Peter in the afterlife..."
