Rep Cole delays vote that would promote Detroit Lions

first_img Categories: Cole News 28Sep Rep. Cole delays vote that would promote Detroit Lions In light of some NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem and the public response by multiple team owners, state Rep. Triston Cole on Tuesday decided to remove a bill from House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee agenda that would help promote the team on Michigan license plates.The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee was scheduled on Tuesday to consider a bill to create a fundraising license plate with a Detroit Lions logo, but Cole, the committee chair, said he and other committee members now want to wait before deciding whether to consider the bill. “While I support people’s right to peacefully protest, I also believe that disrespecting our flag and national anthem ultimately disparages the brave Americans who gave their lives for our great country,” said Cole, of Mancelona. “The committee is not ready to consider this legislation at this time.”“Our flag and anthem are meant to unite us as Americans, and their disrespectful behavior is misguided and inappropriate,” Cole said. “Professional athletes have the freedom to express their views off the field without disrespecting the brave men and women who are fighting for that freedom.”Cole said the National Football League game operation manual states that during the national anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking.The U.S. Code also states that people should stand during the national anthem.The legislation, Senate Bill 178, remains under consideration in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee###last_img read more
