NFL’s Week 4 sees dozens of players kneel, sit, raise fists during national anthem

Dozens of NFL players took a knee during the national anthem as others sat or raised their fists before the games of Week 4 Sunday, a day after President Trump tweeted that it that it was “very important” for players to stand.

Still, the number of kneeling players was down from last weekend, when more than 200 athletes took a knee after Trump lashed out at athletes who protest during the national anthem.

Among the players who kneeled Sunday: half of the San Francisco 49ers. The team released a video of the athletes with the caption: “Together.” Their opponents, the Arizona Cardinals, stood.

The 49ers added in a statement: “For more than a year, members of our team have protested the oppression and social injustices still present in our society. While some may not have taken a knee or raised a fist, we have all shared the desire to influence positive change. Today, our team chose to publicly display our unity in a new way and, in turn, urge others do the same.”

    And thousands and thousands of Americans turned the channel, went fishing, washed the car and did other things other than watch the NFL.

    We need more American Patriots to join us in protesting the Un-American NFL players.

    Maybe by next year, there won’t be a NFL. Those players would be out of a job, and if they are lucky, they may get jobs they are qualified for. Flipping burgers comes to mind.

    Were there games this weekend?

    The arrogance and defiance of these millionaire Athletes and Billionaire owners with their in-you-face kneeling and fist raising is incredible. It only reinforces the lack of discipline and poor choices by so many in their culture that has held so many of their compatriots back. Rather than making asses of themselves and inviting folks to mock them, they should be using their mental and physical skills to convince their less fortunate fellow citizens to adopt the work ethic that has brought they and their owners so much success and wealth. The fact that they emphasize that they are “united” in their despicable protests is not encouraging.
