NFL fans overwhelmingly support league's national anthem policy

Woody: This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, something the NFL seems to have forgotten

They're also aware of the plight faced by safety Eric Reid, one of Kaepernick's former teammates and another protest leader, who is also out of work with the upcoming season just a few months away.

He's also criticized Trump's travel ban and accused the president of having "routinely used racist, misogynist, insulting words".

President Trump praised the NFL for its new national anthempolicy during an interview that aired on "Fox & Friends" on Thursday, and suggested that players who refuse to stand should perhaps leave the country.

"He's an idiot, plain and simple, " Baldwin responded.

"I say disgusting because of our First Amendment rights".

And if "The Star-Spangled Banner" matters so much to the National Football League, shouldn't all four verses be sung? It is what it is.

The NFL Players Association has said it will challenge any part of the no-kneeling policy that violates the collective bargaining agreement.

To make a demonstration of disrespect on the field is for the protesting player's team to incur a fine from the league.

"I'm really proud of our players around the league for really being community leaders", Kerr said. Good thing we're totally cool with the National Football League promoting military enlistment and having the United States government pay them to do so.

Since the USA pull out, the other signatories have embarked on a diplomatic marathon to try to keep the agreement afloat. Some Western companies have already quit Iran or said they may have to leave because of USA sanctions.

"If someone has a problem with what they believe to be mistreatment I think they ought to go to the source-the flag is not the place to do their protesting". "Of course. But I understand if they felt the need to protest". "To come up with a rule, I didn't think - I think it was pretty much over with". "It seems that way". You shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. If somebody wants to protest in that way, while I disagree, that's okay. These remarks spurred several players to join the protest, including some teams doing so in whole.

Now, Carroll said, it's an issue the team will again have to work through.

"To me it's disgusting, " Marshall, who was the only Bronco who took a knee during the National Anthem through the first half of the 2016 season, said about Trump's comment. The leadership that we have on this team, the communication we have in this building, I just don't expect us to have an issue with this. So now it is kind of taking it out of control of the coaches and the players in the locker room to a certain extent. So we are going to have to deal with that. "We're at 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 tried to do here".

Carroll said it was too soon to know how the team might react but that whatever the team does it will do together.

How will we look back on the National Football League in 2018?

Carroll said the Seahawks would continue to support their players in any way they can. The NFL might not have made any commitment to free expression, but its players were engaged in one of the most civil and least disruptive forms of protest imaginable. "That's what this says to me and to mine".

Ever since I was little I've always loved my Chicago Bears.

"Players can not disconnect from the aggression African-Americans face every day", the civil rights organization said.

"We'll have conversations, " Baldwin said.
