My Two Cents: The NFL

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – We’re a little over a week from the NFL’s premier event, the Super Bowl.  It’s been a tumultuous year for the sports league that has its own day of the week.

The controversy started with former San Francisco Giant quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Other players started doing the same thing.  They each gave their reasons for the protest, but the insult was not taken lightly by fans.

I started on the offensive line my junior and senior years in high school for 15 of 22 games for C. Leon King High, the Roaring Scoring Lions, the first one my junior year, then every game after the fourth one.
