Kenny Stills Offers NFL Possible Way To Stop Protests During National Anthem

"Among several players who protested during Thursday's games included Malcolm Jenkins, who raised a fist during the anthem".

The move comes after the Dolphins faced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a preseason game Thursday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

"Rather than condemn the bigots or beliefs today, the president took aim at a protest, a small group of National Football League players calling attention to racial injustice and inequality last night", Tapper added.

The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem.

"It's a slap in the face", Skirvin told the Miami Herald on Saturday. It's not just a slap in the face to our military - past and present- but to all law enforcement officers across the country.

The NFL now has its anthem policy on hold as it tries to come to a compromise with the NFLPA on the issues.

A new NFL policy announced earlier this year requires players to stand during the national anthem but gives them an option of remaining in the locker room during the pregame performance of the song if they choose.

The union said it is no longer participating in the discount ticket program and was urging its counterpart police organizations in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties to do the same. "If you have already purchased a ticket to this game, we encourage you to call the Dolphins ticket office to request a refund because this organization does not honor first responders and the danger they put themselves in every day".

Jordan, who was one of a number of Saints players who protested during the anthem in one game in Carolina last season after the president called out players who sat by using a vulgarity at a rally in Alabama, took to Twitter Friday to call out Trump.
