WATCH NBA legend Le Bron James takes aim at Trump over flag dispute

The drop of 13 points in a single week coincides with the mass protests seen across the league during Week 3 of the NFL season.

-It is disrespectful to the American flag and/or the United States itself. And it is Trump who referred to the white supremacists who rioted in Charlottesville as "very fine people" while labeling black athletes who protest as "sons of bitches".

He tweeted Saturday that players should stand on Sunday, saying they should respect the U.S. flag and country. What truly matters is that their voices should be respected and heard, not attacked and put down. It was no surprise to me when he failed to secure a spot on any NFL roster this season. Throughout Europe and most of the rest of the world, national anthems are only played before games involving the national teams of countries. All the protests and getting all mad about it, to each their own.

We'll have the inactives for the 9:30 game between the Saints and Dolphins at around 8 a.m. EDT. Please do not post links or promotional material. "He's micromanaging. It's someone else's job".

This time last year, USA midfielder Megan Rapinoe became the first white American athlete to take a knee during the anthem.

The objective of a protest is to do something that irritates people.

"You cannot have people disrespecting our National Anthem, our flag, our country, and that's what they're doing", he said.

'That's a total disrespect of everything that we stand for, ' Trump said, encouraging owners to act.

A handful of athletes had followed Kaepernick by kneeling or raising their fist since then, but after President Trump launched a scathing attack earlier this month - calling for club owners to 'fire' those players - the protests have intensified and are growing in number. During it, some fans booed.

Trump also called on fans, again via Twitter, to boycott football games. He is continuing his fight for equality and justice by donating to organizations with the same mission and starting the Know Your Rights Camp, a free campaign for youth fully funded by Kaepernick to raise awareness on higher education, self empowerment and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios. "It's a dog-and-pony show". But a more expansive definition sees politics as the ideological battles that govern the ways in which we interact with one another. "It's a problem, especially with continuous deployment. It's a misappropriation of funds". If sports and entertainment personalities would think through the vacuous symbolism typically evidenced by such remonstrations, and their unintended consequences, they would search for more efficacious means of highlighting important issues. Marcia Mast, Reading: "I prefer for people to stand. That's the whole purpose of it". "And I think it's disgraceful", he said. What was initially a "silent protest of racial inequality" has morphed into an anti-Trump demonstration.

Get instant insight into what people are talking about now. Find a topic you're passionate about, and jump right in. When asked how they would handle a student or students protesting, they responded, "We don't plan on addressing it".

This display of solidarity from NFL players brought renewed scrutiny to the appropriateness of athlete-led protests during "patriotic" proceedings.

In short, if the NFL doesn't reverse course soon, college football will be the most popular sports in the land within the next three years. Heck, even 21% of Democrats are with him on the NFL issue.

These veterans aren't alone. When those signs disappeared, the attitudes remained. That said, I don't think those taking a knee during the National Anthem hate America.
