Trump Defends Anthem Tweets: 'The NFL Situation Is a Very Important Situation'

This tweet has gotten more than 90,000 retweets and over 350,000 likes.

People are taking a stand by not standing. The service chiefs reaffirm their belief in non-discrimination after the President finds merit in neo-Nazi protesters.

A new poll from the right-leaning Remington Research Group found that nearly two-thirds of Americans - 64 percent - believe football players "should stand and be respectful during the national anthem".

"We're not participating in the anthem today - not to be disrespectful to the anthem, but to remove ourselves from the circumstance", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told CBS.

The NFL's CBA also includes a boilerplate contract that requires not only a player's best efforts on the field but also "loyalty to the Club, and to conduct himself on and off the field with appropriate recognition of the fact that the success of professional football depends largely on public respect for and approval of those associated with the game".

Throughout the day, teams protested.

Other teams chose to stay in their locker rooms as well.

Prominent players continued to speak out against Trump on Monday.

What's actually on pages 62 and 63 of the rule book is information about the enforcement of fouls, including backward passes, fumbles, free kicks, dead ball fouls, etc. He drew condemnation last month for saying "both sides" were to blame for violence between white supremacists and their opposing demonstrators during clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia. Anyone with sense would realize that the kneeling is an attack on all patriotic Americans; anyone with that sense and a sense of decency wouldn't do it. Yet the NFL, despite flagging ratings, keeps on digging its hole deeper.

Trump described McCain, who said he won't support the latest GOP effort on health care, as a "disgrace" on the issue, the attendee said.

Atlanta rapper David Banner defended those who take a knee, tweeting, "America doesn't give a f-- about black people so why should we pledge to a bloody ass flag". Later, he called on fans to boycott games "until players stop disrespecting our country".

Richardson finished third in the 2011 Heisman Trophy voting while at Alabama, and he was the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns.

Ferris says that after World War II, sound systems allowed teams and parks to play the anthem sans band.

"Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country". By the end of the day, several things were apparent.

According to valuations released by, the NFL's 32 teams combined are worth $74.8 billion. Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin maybe more eloquently explained: “Im not surprised by Trumps comments. My guess is that the owners now feel committed: They don't want to halt the protests and appear to be opposing a politically correct cause. If not, YOU'RE FIRED.

"I don't like this protest but I think that's part of what's going to make it the most effective", he said. "We must stand united not divided". This gave hint to what was going to come Saturday.

Timmons disappeared the night before the team's season-opening game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sept. 17.

"I wasn't preoccupied with the NFL, I was ashamed of what was taking place because to me that was a very important moment", Trump said.

"It is about race".

Fourth, Trumps pathetic attempt to endear himself to his base by shared white grievance has not succeeded.
