Tatum went on, saying, “I wanna see players go out and play and have a good time and enjoy the game. I don’t want to see politics mixed in with athletics.”
Talking about the importance of the American flag, Tatum said, “You have these people who want to turn around and take a knee and want to attribute all the negativity to the flag and the anthem but don’t want to attribute the positive.”
“If you feel that the American flag represents negativity and slavery and all this other stuff, then you have to give credit and credence to a flag allowed you to go from cornfields and picking cotton to be the president of the UnStatesState of America,”

The Low Energy Cartridge system is a game-changer for law enforcement, and it adds to a family’s ability to diversify home and personal defense. As a former police officer, I understand the value of having a reliable non-lethal cartridge-based firing platform as an option on patrol, giving great flexibility during tactical deployments. I also recognize that a significant population in America is looking for a tool that can keep them safe without having to resort to deadly force. The Low Energy Cartridge system is the perfect solution for America, and I am 100 percent behind this incredibly innovative strategy to make our world a safer and more responsible place.”
