John Tortorella, the Columbus Blue Jackets coach, is also the head coach of the United States hockey team which will participate in the World Cup of Hockey later this month. ESPN’s Linda Cohen asked Tortorella what he thought about players sitting during the National Anthem like Colin Kaepernick did. Not much! Via:
"“If any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game.”"
Let’s just check the “Does Not Support” box next to Torts’ name on the official sheet and move on.
