NFL got paid for patriotism

Some facts about NFL athletes and the national anthem. Prior to 2009 the athletes stayed in the locker rooms while it was played. Thereafter the Dept. of Defense paid the NFL for the athletes to be present and standing during it as a patriotic marketing strategy. Enforced patriotism is more like totalitarianism than free choice in a democracy. God bless America.
