I hope I never see the day one of our Trojans does this, and is supported by our coach and athletic director. I'm done for good if that ever happens here.
Get ready, because it is the current fad.

I am guessing that Shoshi won't be kneeling.

Although I agree that this is not a good method of protest, I certainly don't think that those who are doing it think it is a fad. And by the way, I don't think Mohammed Ali thought he was participating in a fad either when he stood up for his principals and gave up the heavyweight crown. Sometimes it takes pretty unpopular stances to make a point.
I agree. Freedom of speech is our right. These kids had the privilege of being born into the country with the greatest freedom on earth, so they have a right to protest. But I have the same right - to vote with my feet and stay home.
I concede it's within their right, but if they're getting a free ride to college, it's within my right to not participate and not support the institution whose coach and AD approve of it. If they're willing to lose a schollie to protest the greatest and perhaps the most free country in the world, more power to'em, but count me out of being any part of that.

You certainly have the right and freedom to support a program or not. But if a University pulled a scholarship for a student exercising his or her freedom of speech rights, my guess is that such an action would cause problems for the University. I didn't get the impression that anyone at the Fayetteville school "approved" of the protest, only that they affirmed the constitutional right of the students to do it.
