Donald Trump slams National Football League players for 'taking a knee' in protest
Aug 12, 2018, 21:44
Police in Florida are reportedly being discouraged by their unions from buying Miami Dolphins tickets after two Dolphins players knelt during the national anthem Thursday in their preseason opener. "We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the National Anthem", the union's Facebook post read. This did not happen at last night's preseason game against Tampa Bay.
The Miami Dolphins wide receiver took a knee during the anthem before Thursday's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, and after the game, Stills discussed how the National Football League could get some goodwill with its players.
"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans". The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem. Political analysts have predicted Mr. Trump would seek to keep the issue alive to energise supporters ahead of November's crucial mid-term elections, framing protesters as unpatriotic and disrespectful to the military. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he added. The league ruled its players must either stand during the anthem or stay in the locker room until the song's conclusion.
