The NFL has seen its players kneeling all this year, but its other employees have not been as vocal or demonstrative until now. NFL RedZone host Scott Hanson seemed to make a pretty strong statement to military personnel as he was promoting the “Salute to Service” campaign running this month.
Rather than saying a generic “We salute our troops” or a similar phrase, Hanson went a different route. He said, “We stand and salute you” and it sounded like he emphasized the word “stand” as well. He hasn’t given any explanation for that and when he promoted the Twitter campaign again he just said, “We salute you.”
