‘More Disrespectful Than Kneeling’ – What NFL Star Did That NOBODY Is Talking About

Kneeling on the sidelines during the national anthem is one thing.

At the very worst, one can say at least the players are recognizing “The Star Spangled Banner” – just in their own way.

What Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch did on Sunday (and the week before and for multiple seasons before that) is not receiving any attention.

Why?

From Breitbart:

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat on a cooler for the national anthem, while Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Brandon Marshall went inside the tunnel.

Twitter took notice, calling Lynch’s sitting “more disrespectful than kneeling.”

President Trump sent this tweet after the 2018 season’s opening game:

Then, later in the day, what everyone thought might happen happened.

How many players protested? Three.

And it was blatant. Two took a knee.

From The Hill:

Three Miami Dolphins players protested during the national anthem before their season opener against Tennessee on Sunday.

Wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson knelt during the anthem while defensive end Robert Quinn raised his fist, according to The Associated Press.

[…]

“I feel like the NFL could’ve done a better job of controlling the narrative from the beginning,” Stills said, according to the Post. “If the NFL would have done something like Nike did — some type of campaign, explaining this whole situation, having his back, supporting us, supporting our First Amendment right — then this thing would be going in a whole different direction. I think we’ve made progress but obviously we have a ways to go.”

WATCH:

Colin Kaepernick, the man who started the anthem kneeling trend back in 2016, praised the Miami Dolphins players.

Reactions:

What a mess.
