KANSAS CITY FOOTBALL: MARCUS PETERS CONTINUES PROTEST, FANBOYS STILL TWIST ANTHEM AND UNDEFEATED CHIEFS WIN BATTLE BETWIXT RACIST MASCOTS!!!
As nation mourns in the aftermath of the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history and looks for unity through sports . . . Some Kansas City Chiefs continue disrespect for the anthem.
Marcus Peters continued to sit for anthem before Chiefs-Redskins
He was joined in protest by rookie linebacker Ukeme Eligwe.
None of the Redskins protested during the National Anthem.
Even more interestingly, the cable TV audiences (and at least one visiting player) recoiled at the Kansas City spin on the anthem at Arrowhead:
Kirk Cousins cringed as Chiefs fans shouted 'CHIEFS' during the national anthem
On the bright side or whatever . . .
After he took a knee for the anthem last week, this time around Travis Kelce earned the love of fans with his "Chicken Head" or whatever dance moves after a touchdown . . .
Highlight of the game for gambling addicts . . .
Chiefs cover point spread and total against Washington on otherwise-meaningless fumble return on the last play of the game
The main point here . . .
Whilst the mood of the nation grows darker and more divisive during the era of Prez Trump, this Kansas City football celebration seems disconnected with reality for a growing number of Americans.
