It looks like many players in the NFL have chosen a side in the National Anthem issue. Unfortunately, they’ve chosen the wrong side. Do they really think football fans are going to put up with this?
FOX News reports:
Steelers stay in the locker room during national anthem as 100 NFL players protest
The Pittsburgh Steelers remained in the locker room during the national anthem and more than 100 NFL players from several teams kneeled or locked arms nationwide, hours after NFL Sunday kicked off with a similar protest in London criticizing President Trump’s remarks against the league’s players.
NFL Sunday began with members of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens either taking a knee or locking arms as the U.S. national anthem was sung at London’s Wembley Stadium, the first game since Trump launched his attacks against players who knelt during the patriotic song.
Those who were not kneeling, including the coaches on both teams and Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, locked arms during the national anthem at the game in London’s Wembley Stadium. The players then stood up for “God Save the Queen,” the British anthem.
The Pittsburgh Steelers were also noticeably absent on the field during the national anthem before their game with the Chicago Bears. Coach Mike Tomlin stood by himself on the sideline.
This is going to hurt the NFL’s bottom line. Big time.
