Here's why Trump can call Kaepernick an SOB

SANTA CLARA CA- SEPTEMBER 10 Head coach Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers looks on from the sidelines against the Carolina Panthers during the third quarter of their NFL football game at Levi's Stadium

The NFL national anthem protest was started by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began sitting or kneeling during the anthem past year in protest against police brutality and the treatment of black Americans.

President Donald Trump has been vocal in his opposition to NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, and now he's pulling the Chicago Blackhawks into the fray.

Numerous standing players placed one hand on their heart, the other on the shoulder of a kneeling teammate in a sign of solidarity.

Former 49'ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the "anthem protests" last season to shine a light on racial oppression and inequality in the United States.

Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem. Philadelphia defensive backs Rodney McLeod and Malcolm Jenkins raised their fists, but nobody else made a gesture.

National Football League team chairmen and coaches held impromptu meetings with their players and asserted they had the right to protest at Sunday games as long as the gesture was a team effort.

"Before the singing of the national anthem, please join Ravens players and coaches, and the entire Ravens organization, to pray, that we as a nation can embrace, kindness, unity, equality and justice for all Americans", the Ravens' announcer said to a chorus of boos Sunday.

As many as 22,000 people were at the concert. "It sounded like fireworks". "People were standing around, then they hit the floor". A SWAT team blew open the entry to the 32nd-floor room of the hotel with an explosive and found him dead, police said.

Several teams decided to make their feelings known before the anthem was played, including at Wembley where New Orleans Saints players took a knee on the sidelines.

It is meant to call attention to what the protesting players see as a pattern of racism in the treatment of African-Americans by USA police. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you'd say, '. Out!"

Dolphin Julius Thomas, who previously stood during the anthem, said he wanted to send a message that he did not condone what he sees as Mr Trump's intimidation tactics. Last weekend, I did not even turn on the television.

However, one of NASCAR's most prolific drivers, Dale Earnhardt Jr., had a few different words to say about the whole situation.

Almost half of the 49ers' roster were kneeling during the national anthem, while the rest of the team stood behind.

He added: "Respect our Flag and our Country!" In a Twitter post on Sunday, he said he would boycott the Seahawks' games "out of love for my country, for the flag my dad and my POW father in law fought for".
