"It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to." - W. C. Fields
Hail to the King baby!
I don't have a problem with the players taking a political stance but, as pointed out already, the symbolism they chose is false. This whole "hands up, don't shoot" gesture does not reflect the facts of the case. If people want to protest or take a stand, fine. But when that stance is based on a lie it can only serve to undermine the cause.
