As the 2020 NFL season gets underway, Michael J. Matt reads an open letter written in 2016 by retired Marine Col. Jeffery Powers to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, which has recently reappeared on social media. The thrust of the issue centers around players kneeling at the games and the NFL Commissioner’s sanction of the same.
Powers is a decorated veteran of the Gulf War. He retired from the U.S. Marine Corps achieving the rank of Colonel, and his letter resurfaced after the NFL announced plans to sanction kneeling for the anthem during the 2020 season.
President Trump strongly opposes kneeling.
