Letter: Football players could learn from World Cup participants

With the football season fast approaching, maybe the NFL and the NFL Players Association should take a look at the players in this year’s World Cup Games.

Prior to each game, the players march out onto the playing field, hand in hand, with adoring young soccer players and line up to not only stand at attention while their national anthem is played, but also to sing the words of their anthem.

I wonder how many of our “football heroes” know the words to our anthem?

It’s about time that they learned common courtesy and respect the values that our flag and anthem words represent.
