Trump says NFL must change or its business is'going to hell

The NFL's Game Operations Manual says both teams must be on the field for the playing of the anthem, but that players "should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking".

"I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions but, personally, I will not support gay marriage", said the 28-year-old fullback who is a devout Christian and engaged to Silver Ferns ace shooter Maria Tutaia.

Kelly's comments are in stark contrast to what President Trump has said about the issue. In most countries, as well as our own, the flag and anthem of their countries represent how their country came to be, it's beginnings. "He is fired. He's fired!'"

"All I'm telling you is that I believe often in the Northeast we live in a media bubble or even a cultural bubble in the Northeast, we are greatly underestimating the resentment in the public evidenced by Villanueva's jersey sales [and] the ratings."
But I have no control over you, and neither the flag nor the national anthem needs my protection in this matter.

"You tell me which of those children's mothers are a son of a b". They will be inspiring citizens, both here and overseas, long after you and I are gone. And it gives me no more claim to the flag than anybody else.

So please stop using me as an excuse to restrict the freedom of others to peacefully demonstrate in order to forcefully point out a wrong that seriously affects their lives. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable.

What started as former quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest against police brutality has mushroomed into football's referendum on the president. Debate sparked as to whether this decision played a role in the fact that Kaepernick now remains unsigned. Maybe he means that the owners are afraid of a player revolt? However, according to Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), chairman of the CBC, numerous officials' words missed the point of what the players' actions represented. Since Friday, when he described anthem protesters as a "son of a bitch" during a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump has spent everyday either attacking athletes or calling on National Football League officials to forbid such actions. Each issue needs to be addressed and fought for, no doubt, but these situations raise the question: What are they really protesting about?

The comments suggesting that National Football League owners - who are overwhelmingly white - are afraid of their players - the most prominent protesters are black - prompted accusations that Trump is continuing to stoke a controversy with strong racial undertones.

"You can not have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country, and that's what they're doing".

"Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. Full teams, along with some team owners, linked arms either before or during the anthem.
