Some days you just have to love how karma turns the tables on the left. Indiana, that great state that produced our Vice President, is proposing a law that would require the Colts franchise reimburse fans if they are upset when the players take a knee.
Anthem-protesting NFL players have often said that their cause is worth any public scorn, or financial hardship they might have to endure.
Well, a recently proposed state law in Indiana is going to make the players, and their teams, put their money where their mouth is.
Under new legislation filed this week in Indiana, if Colts players kneel in protest of the anthem, any Colts fan angered by that demonstration would have the right to demand a refund from the team.
Republican Rep. Milo Smith told the Indianapolis Star, that the impetus for the bill came when he witnessed the Colts protest at a game in September. As Smith described it, it was something that “didn’t sit right with me.”
… According to Fox News, “Smith explained his proposed bill wouldn’t be breaking any laws as it wouldn’t stop players from kneeling, but would require the Colts to refund fans who wanted their money back. He also explained it wouldn’t require the team to refund sports fans if members of the opposing team were to kneel during The Star-Spangled Banner.”
This is a great trend that should take off around the country. Then we’ll see if these “morally outraged” football hypocrites are really outraged when they have to pay for it.
