The Indianapolis Colts would be required to offer refunds to fans at home games if Colts players kneel in protest during the national anthem - that is, if legislation an Indiana lawmaker is filing goes through.

As reported by the Indianapolis Star, Republican Milo Smith of Columbus said fans could request a refund of their ticket cost during the first quarter of the game.

According to Smith, players who do not stand for the anthem are "not respecting the national anthem or our country".

Smith said he was offended when he attended a September game in which some Colts players joined Cleveland Browns players in kneeling during the anthem.

Pence wrote that he won't "dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem".
