On Wednesday night Mark kept his midweek date with Tucker Carlson on Fox News. The subject was the continuing controversy over NFL players "taking a knee" during the national anthem:
Commentator Mark Steyn said the NFL is "subverting a civic ritual" by allowing their players to kneel during the national anthem.
He said that actions of players in recent times negate the reasoning for taxpayer-subsidized stadiums in many NFL cities.
Steyn said the league legitimizes asking for tax dollars because football is considered a public civic event in which the entire community can come together.
"You can't have that and then for these organizations to strike at the most basic civic ritual which is standing for the national anthem," Steyn said.
