That's a good point and something to consider, but watch an NHL game where Americans account for roughly 25% of all players in the league. Canada accounts for about half, call it a little more than half, and the Europeans account for roughly 20% of the playing population. Not like I've looked for it, but I've never seen a story out of ther NHL saying Canadians (players themselves) or Europeans acting in any way disrespectful during the Anthem.

Dunno, maybe they were taught differently than Americans.
