There is one thing that stands out in our country. There is no longer any respect for the people that pay us. We have lost respect for those in authority over us. We think that we can do as we wish, even while being paid for our time.
The truth is, if you have agreed to work for a person for pay, during those set hours, you no longer belong to you. You are an indentured servant. There are of course limits to this, but indentured you and I are. So there is one problem no one so far has brought up concerning the kneeling that has occurred before the games.
They are kneeling out of the grace of their bosses. So, there now may be a stand being taken in Indianapolis.
The wife of cornerback Antonio Cromartie offers a theory on why the Colts cut her husband.
She says Indianapolis released him because he took a knee during the national anthem.
“You are Nothing More than an Entertainer,” she posted on Instagram. “Just Shut and do what we say. You have No rights as along as you are working for me.. there are other places for you to fight and stand for what you believe… Smh Maybe I read something different.. one things for sure I know my husband was told Not to take a Knee and he went with his heart and he took one. And that cost him his Job.. and Clearly this Statement backs that up… Just a Paid To put on a show.. SMH”‘
Now the question is whether this has any truth to it at all. There is the possibility that Cromartie is not a good fit. This is his third team I three years, and he has not been performing at high levels for years.
But, let’s play “Devil’s Advocate.” Let’s say that this is over his kneeling twice this year. If this is against the Colt’s owner’s wishes, then it is a good reason. You can protest on your own time, but not on his.
I kind of hope that this is the case. Maybe this silliness will end.
