    I’ve seen all of the DRL teams at some point this spring and here are my predictions.
    1. Whittier- Very organized and a bunch of young players who are out to prove something. They have the best player in the league with Tolmachoff and a young RB who is D-1 material. Rest of the league can’t match their athleticism.
    2. La Serna- Not the same kind of size La Serna has had in the past but they do have more discipline than a lot of the teams around. Not to sound like a jerk but their demographics help them a lot!
    3. Cal-Hi- Size and more size. The QB has a nice arm and can move very well. Not sure why strudel gets a bad rap.
    4. Santa Fe-Not the same kind of athletes that Romeo Pellum brought in. And apparently they’re losing players based on Pierson’s complaining tweets.
    5. El Rancho- Medrano relying on an experienced staff. He wasn’t at practice. Decent size line, not Cal Hi big but decent. None of the athletes really stood out.

    If players forced to stand why not fans? Already sports filled with nationalism. Vets standing to be honored, two anthems sometimes three, flag saluting, honor guards,military fly overs. I mean can’t we just attend the game? Ain’t 4th of July enough?

    I wouldn’t give a rip if every professional athlete in the nation decided to “sit out” because of their political views. There is a time and place for entertainers such as these to throw their tantrums, and it’s not at the Oscars or the ball game.

    So what if 90% of the league decides to sit out, who loses?

    I’d give a player the option of not getting paid for a game where he fails to stand during the Anthem. If this runs counter to your vision of a free country, bear in mind that business organizations are NOT democracies.
