Uproar over National Football League protests was a long time coming

Marshall NFL teams can show support by hiring Kaepernick

The conversation is not only about race, as Colin Kaepernick intended when he started this protest in the summer of 2016 by saying "if we can reach common ground and can understand what everyone's going through, we can really affect change".

Wright went on to clarify that it is not true that the players are protesting the anthem, flag, country, or military.

While football fans tend to align more with the NFL players' protest, the majority of Americans disapprove of them kneeling, according to Jordan Cohen, CMO of data-driven marketing firm Fluent.

"One thing I've always said about my father is he will fight for this country", Eric Trump continued. He called on National Football League team owners to intervene, to say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired." - end quote.

Over the past week, our president has taken a shot at athletes specifically those in the National Football League, who "disrespected" our flag and did not stand for it. His opponents, however, saw it differently, and chose to play the race card in claiming that the President was calling Kaepernick a - quote - "son of a b**ch" - end quote - because he's half black.

The owners and front offices of teams have also partaken in the protests. It isn't hard to see especially again, in the last 24 hours the different responses athletes, organizations and officials are making or made even before President Trump's open attack. He said that Trump's remarks, however, breathed new life into the anthem protests.

Kaepernick has arguably become the face of athletes choosing to exercise their right to freedom of speech and right to peaceful protest by taking a knee during the national anthem at the beginning of sporting events. However the players say "we'll be standing together" this week. It evolved into a movement a handful of players joined last season but was mostly derided. The 45th president of the United States, amid natural disasters, global conflict with North Korea and an unresolved insurance bill, took time out of his day to tweet about basketball because Stephen Curry had a vote.

I would even go so far as to say the open debate/arguing between the leader of the United States and common citizens is a shining example of democracy at work.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who didn't protest during the anthem, said he regrets not being out on the field during "The Star-Spangled Banner". "You have lost me here".

Thomas shared with Sports Illustrated the following: "Everybody wants to talk about how this is disrespectful to the American flag", Garfield coach Joey Thomas said. "All I know is the quotes I read and when I read those quotes, I think that's the opposite of what you're expecting". Perception is very real in what we do. They'll be the most popular person, for a week. Other solutions might include players staying in the locker room during the national anthem, as the Pittsburgh Steelers did, or perhaps to cut the anthem altogether. He added: "I think they are afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth, and I think it's disgraceful". "I mind kneeling, and my father minds kneeling", he said.

Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans players also opted to remain inside before their games and released similar statements.
