Rishard Matthews says he'd quit National Football League if forced to stand for anthem

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews will not stay in the locker room or pay a fine if the NFL makes a new rule requiring players to stand for the national anthem at games.

His response on Thursday to a reporter from his verified account was captured by a screen grab. In the three games since, the Titans collectively stayed in the locker room once, and Matthews stayed in the locker room until after the national anthem twice.

The Company operates through two segments: GPU and Tegra Processor, which are based on a single underlying architecture. Increasing profits are the best indication that a company can pay dividends and that the share price will trend upward.

Matthews was not available on Thursday after practice before the locker room was closed to reporters.

Mathews told a News 4 producer that if a new rule is put in place, he will quit playing professional football.

Seventh months later, rapper T-Pain accidentally revealed they were engaged in an interview published (unfortunately) on April 1. He had also praised Twigs then and said, "She's super-talented and from a totally different world".

The protests by Matthews started following a torrent of criticism from President Donald Trump, who attacked players for not standing during the anthem.

Earlier this month, the Seattle Seahawks and Titans stayed off the field during the anthem. Should be really interesting to if he ends up following through on his threat or not.

The Labor Department said US producer prices rose 0.4 percent last month and 2.6 percent in the 12 months through September. While bond trading was down 16 percent, stock trading was up 16 percent and security services were up 12 percent.

Last month, Matthews pledged to donate $75,000 to organizations that support oppressed communities. "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country". "If you see wrong and don't say anything, that's wrong". Rather than directing anger to the fact that protests still are happening, think of why they're still happening.
