Two Little Miami football players have been suspended from their team after they ran onto the football field with a thin blue line and thin red line flag.
When the Little Miami High School football team took the field Friday, Sept. 11, a couple of players carried alongside the American flag a Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line flags.
You can watch the proud moment below:
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

Well, it was a proud moment for everyone who loves America but as you can see from the comment of the guy who uploaded the video, some “Americans” don’t approve this patriotic move because they thought this was just another political show.
“Were you trying to make some kind of a political statement here?” Local 12 asked Brady Williams, a senior cornerback.
“No,” he answered quickly. “Not at all. I was just doing it to honor the people that lost their lives 19 years ago.“
His father is a police officer, and he says he wanted to honor all the cops who lost their lives trying to save others on 9/11.
Jarad Bentley carried the Thin Red Line flag.
“I was all for it,” he said. “Because my dad is a firefighter, and if it had been him killed on 9/11, I would have wanted someone to do it for him.”
The spokesperson for Little Miami Schools said the players did ask for permission in advance to run with the flags but were told no.
The players did it despite being told no, according to the school.
“Listen,” Williams said. “I don’t care what my consequences are. Ss long as my message gets across, I’ll be happy.”
The school decided to suspend Williams and Bentley from the football team as a result.
