Players began kneeling during the anthem in 2016 as a means of protesting social injustice in the U.S.

And those pages do not acknowledge that the anthem protest started two years ago by Colin Kaepernick had nothing to do with respect for the flag. This argument could depend upon proof, though baseball arbitration involving John Rocker suggest that free speech is protected no matter how offensive.
