    Anyone hear Shockey's post game comments? He said we had about 12 players crossing their arms during the Anthem before the game.

    He went on and on about it.

    Funny thing is, this isn't the first time this has been brought up. :texflag:

    Although it's kind of annoying coming from Shockey, if I were Mr. McNair I would correct this.

    I agree! It's been reported more than once, twice, three times.

    Having had a kid in the Navy and knowing how much they respect that flag, brings it home a little more for me.

    First I've heard of this. What is this all about?

    Meh. So what? You aren't required to have your hand over your heart for the national anthem. One of the things about living in the US.

    I love how that post reads..:lol:

    I agree with the rest, though. If true they need to correct the problem, and I do believe it should be considered a problem. And screw Shockey.

    We (the team) have been called out by not standing "at full attention" during the National Anthem several times.

    Shockey went on this evening about how it's disrespectful, blah, blah, blah.

    Problem is, he's RIGHT! Never in a straight line, never at full attention.

    As someone who gets a little misty eyed every time (I am a girl after all) they play that anthem, it bugs me.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't a gender-specific phenomenon. My allergies always seem to flare up when the National Anthem gets played. It's the damndest thing...

    I believe in every American's right to act however the hell they want during the National Anthem, but not people that represent my business interests. I agree that McNair should put his foot in someone's ass over this.

    I don't have a problem with it. They're allowed to stand anyway they want during the anthem.

    Agree, if a person wants to be a disrespectful ass during the anthem, it is indeed their right. No disrespect or sarcasm intended there, Sam. Just the way I feel. :)

    He also called Demeco, "Demario Ryans, or whatever." :thinking:

    Says a lot about the team's attitude pre-game. Arms crossed tells me that they weren't taking the other team seriously or the moment.

    I think Shockey's a loudmouth punk who was ousted by 2 different teams for his attitude. He just wants to be back in the spotlight like his glory days 6+ years ago.

    Luv ya Kimmy.

    But as US citizens, we have the right to disagree with our government. Personally, I don't think the Texans players are making a political statement here, they're just being football players. Most of whom are making a thousand times as much as they would if they had to actually work for living. This is much ado about nothing as I see it.

    Of course, the only way he would know is if he himself was being disrespectful and watching the other team instead of having his eyes fixed on the flag. Look in the mirror, jackass.

    Luv Ya Too, you dirty old man :)

    I agree, as much as it is their right not to respect the flag, it's as much my right to be annoyed by it.

    It didn't really bother me till my daughter entered the Navy. We were lucky enough to attend a "tiger cruise" on her carrier. Watching all those soldiers stop and salute the flag before they came aboard really changed my way of thinking :) :worldpeace:
