Trump laments tax break for National Football League over players' dishonour of flag

Then-Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick began a movement by protesting police brutality and racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem last season

NFL players from at least 7 teams reportedly told to stand for anthem

When the players who were in London (Saints vs. Dolphins) went down on their knees during our National Anthem, then stood for the British Anthem, they showed us all where they belong.

"I look forward to the day when everyone in Management can unite and truly embrace and articulate what the Flag stands for: "Liberty and Justice for All" instead of some of them just talking about standing", he said. He said during a political rally in Huntsville, Ala., on September 22 that National Football League owners should fire the players who knelt during the anthem.

There are many reasons why NFL players are wrong to use the national anthem as a vehicle for social protest, but I'll limit my comments to two.

Smith called for management to support players and speak out on issues so "players do not have to risk the taunts and threats alone".

National anthem protests once again made headlines in the NFL Sunday, with one report suggesting NFL owners and/or team executives have made it clear to players they must stand for the anthem. "If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones said after the Cowboys' 35-31 defeat to the Green Bay Packers. And that's exactly what the National Football League players are doing.

"I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country".

Protest all you want, but do it somewhere else, not during the national anthem.

"I'm very supportive of the team, but under no circumstances will the Dallas Cowboys - I don't care what happens - under no circumstances will we as an organization, coaches, players, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag".
