    Can someone tell me why the NFL fanbase is making such a big deal about people kneeling during the national anthem?

    The NFL fanbase isn't. If you're a fan, you watch your team.

    they only started showing the anthem ceremony before games after 9/11.
    before that, it was done during the first set of commercials off air.
