Watch Scully discuss his feelings about the NFL:

Scully mentioned that he was in the Navy for a year and that he had “overwhelming respect for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war.” Strong applause immediately followed his commentary.

Gotta love the outrage at Vin Scully because he said he won't watch the NFL b/c of the protests. He's not allowed that opinion? #Hypocrites

Scully was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then President Obama last year.
