…lots of media outlets are not even bothering to remind readers of why NFL players have been protesting?
I went through a bunch of news stories reporting on “local people don’t like NFL protest”. *ZERO* mentioned the reason for the protests.

I’m shocked, I tell you! Shocked!
Well. not really. The complaints and animus against NFL players were never anything to do with their protest. Most of the whiners pissers and moaners don’t give a flying fish about that. They either want their football event to be unsullied by “politics”, although they were presumably quite happy with the paid patriotism, or they reflexively think the protests are “disrespectful, in which case they are clueless about the First Amendment and freedom.
