My girls love being in attendance to sporting events mainly because they are with me and secondly because they get to see and hear the national anthem being sung.

I'd like it to be televised instead of that time being used for commercials. And that reminds me of when playing little league we used to line up and slap/shake the opponents hand after a game. The NFL should do that too.

Well, you’re forced to think about it. But I didn’t want to retire yet. All I can say is, football is what I am. Football is who I am. If I didn’t feel I could do it, if I wasn’t 100 percent sure I could do it, believe me, I wouldn’t do it. There are so many reasons why I still love it. Love of the game for one; there’s nothing like it. The competition, the locker room, trying to achieve something together. I will never forget winning that Super Bowl with Green Bay despite all the injuries we had, and the guys on that defense saying to me, “Wood, we’re gonna get this for you.” That stuff, you never forget. And the game itself … running out of the tunnel 16 Sundays in the fall, hearing people chant your name at home and boo you on the road. The national anthem. People don’t talk about that much, but it means a lot to me. It’s emotional to work as hard as you do, and then the anthem plays, and you’re standing out there with your team, and you just can’t wait to play. You don’t want to give that up.

Not airing the National Anthem is a disappointment to me.

Then again so is people who try to be bigger than the song by putting their own style to it. Sing it like it was written and get off the field. You are only one of 300 million not #1 of 300 million.

We know the NFL, MLB and the rest can air the song, they do so when someone famous sings during a playoff game. So they know there is an interest in their viewership. If people would express an interest to them they would opt to air the song before all games.

Worse than not including the National Anthem is to come back from commercial during the end of it. (Or cutting away as it is beginning.) It just makes it seem so unimportant to the network.

I'd rather them use High School or College or young aspiring singers. I feel they would universally respect the song for what it is more than someone who has "made it" already.

Sort of on the same vain- The son of a friend of mine was a Ranger and one of the first into Afghanistan back in the very beginning. He has been treating burn patients from A-Stan for about about 5 years now. He took his kids to their first MLB game last night and he was appalled by the lack of respect that people show toward the national Anthem. People not removing their caps. People talking. People texting or using their phones. And of course the local network having gone to a commercial break which he would not be aware of.
