I would bet there are many "liberal" NFL players. I get tired of all these labels, and how everyone has one generalized view or definition of how anyone with that label stamped on them should act. My political views are certainly to the left, but I hate political correctness and the suppression of free speech (for all points of view). But I would point out that the guarantee to free speech is regarding government prosecution, not media or public "outrage."
You probably made a really important point, but how was I supposed to pay attention to it?
