After he and his father forced a trade out of Baltimore (where he was selected first in the 1983 NFL draft), Elway became a quick star. He led the Broncos to the playoffs in four of his first five seasons (the franchise had only made the postseason three times total before Elway arrived) and played in three Super Bowls in four years. Denver lost those games by a combined score of 136-40 and by the time Elway turned 37, it looked as if he'd go down as an all-time great who couldn't get it done when it mattered most. Then, with the help of Terrell Davis, Elway quarterbacked the Broncos to two-straight Super Bowl wins in his last two seasons. He went out on top.
Our Flag is a rally point for our country. It has always been that way, We have a long history of issues and problems, but always rally behind our Flag for our country.
Our Flag represents our country, not some individual issue or problem in our country. We must stand behind our Flag and country. It is what Americans are for, and to do. It should never be disrespected due to any given issue or problem.
There are many people and countries today that do not respect our Flag, or us. Those who are in this category are not deserving Americans. Select another country, and leave this one.
Villanueva reacted as he felt. It was his duty. His subsequent denial was also a duty for his team, and coach. That pressure is the cause of his reversal, not his personal feelings inside. He is to be commended for his initial act, and excused for his subsequent act as it was based solely upon the disrespect by his team and coach toward him of whom he must also support.
