Put this down as the most disappointing story of the day.
The NBA Team The Dallas Mavericks will no longer play the National Anthem before home games.
This was at the direction of the owner Mark Cuban.
The Dallas Mavericks have stopped playing the national anthem before home games at the direction of owner Mark Cuban, he confirmed to ESPN on Tuesday.
The Mavericks do not plan to resume the tradition to play the national anthem before games in the future.
Cuban, who declined further comment, made the decision after consulting with NBA commissioner Adam Silver. The Mavericks did not announce the change in policy, but the national anthem has not been played before any of their 13 preseason and regular-season games at the American Airlines Center this season.
This is one of those stories that just kills me.
I really do not understand this anti-National Anthem movement.
America is the greatest country on earth. There is no question we have made mistakes in our past but every country has.
Our National Anthem is a unifer. The fact that we have people in this country pushing against it is only making the division worse.
