    Even if your intern had a legitimate social issue to protest would you support them kneeling in the middle of a court room during working hours to bring attention to it?

    We don't have interns but whether I have an issue or not (I wouldn't), the law society of BC would.

    That's the narrative Trump has fooled you into believing.
    I'm very well aware of the deflection.

    Yup. Doing stuff like this at work is not on.

    Do it on their free time.

    NFL players weren't out on the field for anthems before 2009. Even now, the anthem is never televised (except for Super Bowl celebrity cameos).

    The fact that it became an issue means Kapernick accomplished what he intended to do. (whether he should have focused on his career is another story)

    He got everyone talking about his protest.

    The NFL wins by keeping their military sponsorship.

    Effects on ratings: Zero.

    Ratings will continue to slide in the age of streaming and a million other entertainment options. Maybe, if the Cowboys return to glory, ratings will go up.

    Regardless, the NFL is still a billion dollar printing press. Mike Pence's displeasure (or lack of) doesn't move the needle.

    Good point CH

    It also shows that if the shield went this far regarding kneeling, that there clearly has been collusion to ensure Kaepernick is not employed.

    Fair enough....but that said intern that kneels in court would give your firm a bad rep, no ? And most importantly, it would be bad for business.

    Now you know how NFL owners feel....

    I heard some people leave the Bell Centre after two periods to protest Montreal's potholes.
