Liberal Sports Media Unhappy with US Soccer’s Bylaw on Standing for the National Anthem

Last year, when it was popular for professional athletes to kneel or sit down during the playing of the American national anthem, there was outcry on both sides of the political aisle about whether it was appropriate or not.

At that time, Megan Rapinoe joined the likes of Colin Kaepernick of the NFL and a handful of other athletes, and now, Rapinoe will not be able to do so. The U.S. Soccer Federation passed a bylaw that makes every athlete that plays for the national team to stand during the playing of the national anthem.

She said that she respect’s the soccer federation’s bylaw and will stand, but the headlines of the liberal media won’t make it seem like it’s water under the bridge:
