What They're Saying: Steve Malik

“Being on the right side of history on this thing makes a lot of sense to me. I think what’s happening in our country right now is an opportunity to really address systemic problems that have been there a long time. I think we all realize that we certainly have to allow, and frankly support, efforts to bring some justice to this equation ... While this is the time that soccer has an opportunity to step up and be part of the solution, we all in our own individual way can contribute to that.”

-- Steve Malik, owner of the NWSL's North Carolina Courage and USL Championship's North Carolina FC and a member of U.S. Soccer's board of directors, which will meet on Tuesday to discuss the repeal of Policy 604-1, which requires players to “stand respectfully” during the national anthem. Malik, a Pro Council representative, wasn't a member of the board when the vote was taken in February 2017. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

    While we don’t always execute to perfection, the idea of America is firmly grounded in the natural human rights of man, and is the greatest idea for governing a sovereign nation in human history. I believe the core ideas presented in both the Declaration of Independence and in the US Constitution (in its amended form) put them among the greatest human rights documents ever. The flag represents those ideals. Is this somehow debatable?
