Trump asks if National Football League players who protest should be in country

You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there.

National Football League owners concluded that all players on the field must stand for the anthem.

"In this great country of ours, there are so many people who are hurting and marginalized, which is why I am proud of our players for continuously working to influence positive change".

"That's just another topic to get everybody against each other", he said, according to ESPN.

Eagles owner Jeff Lurie also aired his sentiments and expressed support for the players who are fighting to stand with their marginalized brothers against racism.

At least the disrespect of the American flag won't be plastered on my TV. That NFL followed suit, pandered to their fan base, created this hysteria. That's what we're really there to do.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has raised his fist for the last two years during the anthem as a sign of defiance - not a protest against the flag - and was one of the players' recognized leaders as they protested the shooting of unarmed Black men and the treatment of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, blackballed by National Football League teams ever since he initiated the social justice protests, which have somehow been construed as unpatriotic. Their business model is an American success story built on the backs of the men, majority black, who have and still do play the game.

Currently, NFL regulations say that players "should" stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The NFL had previously suggested that players should stand, but it stopped short of enforcing fines.

"We feel like we're all partners", Kerr said.

"To me, it's all about love, but the problem is, I think we're focused on the wrong things", Wilson said. "We'll resume tomorrow. I wouldn't assess right now". A lot of our players have been outspoken in terms of gun safety, gun violence, and our league supports it.

Meanwhile, the issue of police overreach and its impact on unarmed Black men was brought into focus on Wednesday when Milwaukee police released body camera video of the arrest and tasing of National Basketball Association player Sterling Brown. He played at the University of Arizona from 1984 to 1988, helping the Arizona Wildcats reach the Final Four.

It surely was in Baldwin's mind Wednesday when he called Trump "an idiot, plain and simple," the quote that took on a life of its own. I think this illustration of a new statement of what's going to be is going to have an effect that we're going to have to deal with. I think we were at a better place in terms of what was happening in the world. "And I think that's the difference between patriotism and nationalism. And I think Adam Silver has really taken that leadership mantle and made it a priority".

Of course, the owners also stipulated that no one has to even be on the field for the national anthem. The Rockets will wore patches on their jerseys that read: "Santa Fe HS".

"It's devastating any time you hear a story like this", Kerr said. "We're in a time in this country where there is a divisive atmosphere and that makes it tough to strike a balance, but that's what we've tried to do". A Senate investigation launched in 2015 revealed that between the years 2012 and 2015, the Pentagon spent $53 million on contracts with various professional sports teams to promote USA militarism.

"The Santa Fe victims were victims because the parent of the shooter didn't lock the guns up".

"There are so many common sense gun reform measures we could take and yet we refuse to do so out of ideological philosophies and kids continue to get slaughtered".
