In England (and most of Europe) they only play the national anthem at international games. That just seems a more natural choice to me.

Exactly. I was at the Rockies / Brewers game Sunday and it really seemed excessive. Stand for the military entrance, stand for the national anthem, stand for a trumpet rendition of god bless America between one of the innings. I felt like I was at mass lol. Probably getting off topic a bit though......

Let them have their stupid protests! They have the right of free speech.  IMHO, It is stupid to protest this country when you're making millions playing a kids game! They act like a bunch of spoiled brats.

 But aside from that, the problem as I see it is all of the attention they are getting, If the networks would stop showing this crap and everyone would ignore it, I feel it would go away of it's own accord. twocents) twocents) twocents)
