"Two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA Women's World Cup champion Abby Wambach joins Cheddar to discuss how athletes around America are protesting the national anthem. She says she's proud of them for taking a knee but knows how hard it is to protest. As a ""fierce patriot"" herself, she says she would probably kneel as well due to everything going on in the world right now. Plus, the now-retired star said she wanted to leave the sport of soccer better than she found it and thinks she did just that. However, she believes the battle for equal pay needs to continue. She says equality isn't all about the money and mentions that all athletes need to have equal playing fields and safety precautions. She now advocates for sports to be played on natural grass, as it's easier on the athlete's body and prevents injuries down the line."
