In an article I read today Derek Jeter, new owner of the Florida Marlins, said it was okay with him if hisplayers want to take a knee during the playing of the national anthem.
Wrong idea, Derek!
The last thing he needs for his new venture into sports ownership is to piss off his fan base. Jeter has always been a class player and a better man throughout his baseball career. But, with all due respect, he's not thinking things through very well. He owns the workplace that baseball field represents. Keep politics out, and baseball will continue to thrive. Don't be dumb like the NFL! It's not worth trouble.
