The 1st Amendment and The NFL

Posted on: September 27, 2017

Many people believe The 1st Amendment comes in to play regarding the NFL players taking a knee during the playing of The National Anthem but that is incorrect.

The 1st Amendment comes in to play when the government refuses a permit to speak in a public venue or when the government prevents certain types of speech, not when a professional sports organization decides it needs to do something to increase the “drama” on the field.
