NFL and national anthem

Little known but true, Donald Trump, besides being a failed casino owner, is also a failed professional football owner. He owned a team that he wanted absorbed into the NFL. The NFL would not allow his team to join the league and it failed. That is probably part of the reason that Trump is so angry with the NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem. My solution: discontinue playing the national anthem at sporting events. It may be traditional, but it is unnecessary.
