A Simple Solution to a Complex Problem

There’s a lot of talk nowadays about freedom of speech and the NFL and people who protest. It seems to me that there’s a simple solution to this problem.
Here’s the first amendment to the US Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
By adding just four words, we can clarify what is apparently a confusing statement:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech — except at sporting events — or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
All we have to do is change the Constitution, which is probably a relatively easy thing to do.
You’re welcome.
