Dodgers broadcasting legend, Vin Scully, is the latest to weigh in on the NFL and players kneeling during the national anthem. Scully was speaking at a Saturday event in Pasadena, and said he would never watch another NFL game.

“I have only one personal thought, really. And I am so disappointed. I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday. And it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year. Didn’t go anywhere. Didn’t do anything. But I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game,” Scully said.
It’s fair to say that there are very different perspectives about why people are kneeling and what it means, and Scully’s opinion is not out of lockstep with many Americans.
