Jerry Jones wagged fingers to keep media on field during Cowboys' kneel

Ford Motor Company on Monday declared its support for those professional NFL players who have chosen to protest during the national anthem by not standing, despite many NFL fans' calls to put an end to the practice.

"I have so many friends that are owners, and they're in a box", Trump said in the interview.

Trump made the claim about the players - a majority of whom are African-American - after claiming to have spoken to National Football League owners, who are nearly exclusively white.

Those arguing the heated "kneeling during the national anthem" debate are on two different pages, and could benefit from understanding the terms of reference.

It's a comfortable way to seemingly appease the players who want to continue the protest for racial equality and social justice, started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last season, while also showing respect for the flag and the anthem. Conversely, 79 percent of black respondents either strongly or somewhat disapprove.

New England Patriots team owner Robert Kraft is one of Trump's friends but said recently he was "deeply disappointed" by Trump's remarks last week and he supports peaceful protests made by his players.

A new poll shows Americans are nearly evenly split on whether it is appropriate for NFL players to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial discrimination.

Falcons edge Lions after Tate TD was overturned
The next season, the Lions took on the Tennessee Titans and in the second quarter, Stafford threw a touchdown pass to Eric Ebron. Eight seconds later, Stafford had already taken another snap and spiked the ball to set up the game-tying field goal.

I suppose it takes a great deal of arrogance to play in the National Football League, but what's revealing about Walker's comments is that they prove that their protest for "free speech" is a little one-sided.

"We should all show respect for the flag", said Prince.

Overall, 77% of Americans do not think the football field is an appropriate place for political protests, according to data released Wednesday from data-marketing firm Fluent.

This time past year, U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe became the first white American athlete to take a knee during the anthem. "The only way out for them is to set a rule that you can't kneel during the National Anthem!".

The PFPMA is not the first group to push back against Mr Trump's "son of a b****" comments - in fact, they're not even the first mothers to do so. Maybe the players realized that they aren't built for this protest life.

I also spent nearly four years in the Army of the UNITED States of America, including one tour in Viet Nam, and served as a Survivor Assistance Officer for military dead.
