Just 41 NFL (of the 1400) players sat or knelt during the national anthem Sunday in the earlier slate of games. that…
The 1st 20 teams to play this week had 11 players kneeling combined.
The 49ers, Colin Kaepernick’s former team, knelt but with there right palms over their hearts in a sign of respect.
President Trump has continued to tweet about the issue, and on Saturday said it was “very important” for the players to stand and to “respect our flag and our country.”
Early game day, only 11 players knelt or sat during the anthem, a number that nearly 3X’d when the San Francisco 49ers team knelt ahead of their game at the St. Louis Cardinals.
A report Sundaysaid President Trump called Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to implore him to not kneel during the anthem last week. Mr. Jones and the team knelt ahead of the anthem but stood up for the anthem with locked arms.
These NFL people are getting the message, the fans, and the sponsors do not want football entertainment politicized.
Have a terrific week.
