Dolphins owner claims in deposition Trump influenced anthem protest talks, report says

Ex-49ers safety Eric Reid and quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneel during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams in Santa Clara Calif. NFL owners have approved a new policy aimed at addressing the firestorm

Kaepernick attorney Mark Geragos said that one NFL owner has admitted under oath to the about-face decision, because Trump began attacking the players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem, Sports Illustrated reported. "This one lifts me", Trump continued.

Just five days ago, the NFL thought they had solved the National Anthem crisis by laying out a policy that would fine any team that has players on the sideline who were not standing and respecting the Anthem.

The controversial issue of kneeling during the National Anthem continues to take over the football world with the implementation of a new policy that requires all players to stand during the anthem's course.

The apparent takeaway: Trump is not the entire reason the league enacted its new anthem policy, but he appears to have played a role in its enaction. He spent all of last season as a free agent after opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers and is suing the league because he alleges that the owners colluded to not sign him to a contract.

Trump shook hands with Corker's staffer, who played an instrumental role in setting up communications for Holt's release. Trump told Holt. "But we've had 17 [prisoners] released", during the Trump administration, the president said.

Eric Reid, although less implicated in any resistant movements, was the player who knelt beside Kaepernick in a September 2016 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Major League Baseball, the NHL, NBA, WNBA, Major League Soccer and the NCAA have no such rules. Players should be able to protest on a national platform to bring attention to issues they feel strongly about. Legal experts have said that professional football players, as private employees, likely don't enjoy constitutional protections from their employers for protests at work. But thus far, the debates about player protests have manifested as labor disputes.

The NFL Players Association spoke out against the owners meeting and stated they would challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, while testifying in the Kaepernick collusion grievance, shared the details of a phone call with the President. Dash asked him if he had any evidence.
