Can I be Reduced in Grade for Something I Said During a Unit Football Game?

Can my 1SG/Commander reduce me in grade during a football game. because they did not like I a statement I had made? Specifically I stated the commander of the other unit needed to follow the rules and not allow her team to break the rules.

That depends.  If your statement was disrespectful or violated the UCMJ in another way then yes it is possible but usually things like this are not an issue as long as the individuals remain professional and respectful.

Hope this Helps
