usuncut.com... hawks-roster-will-protest-national-anthem-sunda/

so i guess it has been discussed within the seattle seahawks locker room whether or not the whole team would sit during the anthem.

i really think they are missrepresenting a protest. **Kaepernick** has now created the next "ice bucket challenge"
are you man enough to sit through the national anthem?

so are just the black players going to sit? are they protesting the police? are they protesting racial inequalities? are they protesting for black lives matters?

This is getting out of hand. If i was the NFL i would require that all teams suspend the anthem before games immediately, instead only do it for the superbowl. this is just going to get worse, and more players will be criticized.
will kaep ever stand for the anthem again? cuz there isnt going to be a change because a few people decided to sit during the anthem.

kaeps jersey is selling #1 ... its like hands up dont shoot. i am still confused as to what exactly the purpose of disrespecting your country to protest, and what it is thats being protested.

Exercising one's right to free speech, a right granted to us by the document that helped found this very nation, is not disrespectful to the nation itself.

Let them sit.

Let everyone who wants to sit, sit!

I'll still stand.

This is really gonna start to piss cops off everywhere. And they will say we will not work the games if the NFL allows it.

But the NFL is so big they could just say f the police and make there own security force federalized and all.

This could get interesting.

Obama even said that "this is how democracy works, sometimes it gets messy, but it's his 1st amendment right" something to that effect

People get outraged but then are clueless about what's going on with the Dakota Pipeline. I know it's about the "principle" but there ARE other issues going on other than people not standing for the National Anthem. And it IS their right to do so.

Actual illegal and corrupt things are going on such as corporations violating treaties the US Government made with Natives (while still raping their lands and resources), but how much do we hear about that in the MSM? And how much have we heard about Kaepernick? #ing pathetic

the police do more to deface the uniform they wear a lot worse than over paid athletes who just kneel...

Not standing in respect of the thousands who gave their lives to protect that right to free speech among many others IS disrespectful.

He can sit all he wants, it's just practice for him anyways since he'll be riding the pine this year.

They are absolutely not trying to disrespect our military troops. Only the police.

Typical statist mentality. Such dogmas benefit who? What about the Veterans who "sit with Kaepernick"? Are they disrespecting themselves?

So you think this is a challenge? You think bringing awareness to a radical police state and racial injustice is a game?

Get your mind right.

That's your opinion.

I believe exercising the rights that people died for is more meaningful than standing for an anthem at a stupid football game....sponsored by Mt. Dew and Cool Ranch Doritos.

try [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Lives_Matter#Philosophyurl] up about it, rather than believing in far right lies.

Doesn't matter what they are protesting.

They still have the right to do so.

When you sit there's no discrimination, what he's projecting to many people when he does this is putting more importance on his ideals/issue than that of the people who died protecting the very freedom he now enjoys.

This could be a tactic. Save that energy for the 4th quarter.
Let them protest. Who does it hurt?

I have a right to free speech. I can say # Obama. I can say # Trump. And I fully support free speech; but the exercise of free speech isn't always respectful.
