Tarlov: It’s a First Amendment Right for NFL Players to Take a Knee
TARLOV: "When you say it isn’t the president’s place to do this. It’s a First Amendment right for players to take a knee and Colin Kaepernick sat during the anthem and a veteran told him you should be kneeling. You can be fired for it. I think in this culture where we saw tweets from the president of the United States going after the First Amendment with NBC should lose their license, which isn’t how it works. We are in dangerous territory here when the president is weighing in on issues that do not concern him whatsoever. This is a private organization. Let them take care of it. I think a lot of people would have been okay and talked about it if the 3 to 9 players continued doing that. He has made this."
