We Shouldn't Play National Anthem Before Sporting Events

The NFL is a private business that is trying to take your money away from you in exchange for entertainment. The league and the sport itself is no different than a movie theatre, an amusement park, or anything that you pay to consume in your spare time. It's always struck Clay Travis weird that at the beginning of this independent event, the national anthem was played.

"Could you imagine going to see a movie in the theatre and having to stand for the national anthem before it? Wouldn't you find that weird?"

To avoid any contextual issues, why don't you just hear the audio for yourself right here from Clay Travis' morning show Outkick the Coverage, which you can subscribe to here.

No Anthem Before Sports
