Local company cancels suite at Jazz games over team kneeling during anthem

(1:31 PM, Sep 23, 2020 and last updated 3:42 PM, Sep 23, 2020)

Except from the letter sent to the Utah Jazz:

Standing quietly and respectfully during the anthem is not merely an antiquated or courteous tradition, it is a way of honoring the many thousands who have protected this country and its unique freedoms-through their service and sacrifice. Too say the least, it is ironic that pampered and exceptionally well-paid athletes cavalierly exercise the freedom bought for them through the courage, and sacrifice of this nation's servicemen and women by disrespectfully kneeling during the country's anthem.
