I was incensed when my son told me about this story. Not only because I disagreed with Smith's position, but the fact that he's proposing this measure only for when _Colts players_ protest, not when the visiting team does.
For argument's sake, pretend that there is some justifiable need and authority for this law. Taking a knee during the anthem is so harmful that it warrants penalizing the team in order to protect the citizens of Indiana.
Taking all that as true, what possible justification is there for only mandating a refund when the home team kneels? Isn't it just as disrespectful, just as harmful, when the visiting team does?
It needs no deep analysis to see why this is BS, but the ridiculousness of this posture is astounding.
