The NFL did not give in to Trump--They gave in to the fans who left them with empty seats at games

NY Times Editorial:

The N.F.L. Kneels to Trump

The league has given in to the president’s demagogy.
If your employees are doing things that lead customers to avoid your business, intelligent people take action against the employees offending the customers.  If half the seats in a restaurant were empty because employees were offending the customers, the owner would deal with the employees and tell them to go work somewhere else.  The NFL is no different in that regard.

What makes the actions of the players at NFL games more egregious is that it all started with the "Hands up, Don't shoot" lie that came from the shooting of a suspect in a strong-arm robbery in Ferguson, Missouri.  Like many other fans, I find the actions of players showing disrespect for the country offensive.  It is a counterproductive move they would be wise to avoid.
