Another NFL Star Sits During Anthem for Second Straight Day

Davis, 34, returned from three torn ACLs in the same knee earlier in his career to become one of the league's best linebackers, earning All-Pro in 2015 while helping the Panthers reach the Super Bowl.

"First of all, I want people to understand that I love the military", Bennett said. My father was in the military. "I love him to death, and I think he's very courageous in the position he's in and the things that he says". Whether it is Muslim, whether it is Buddhist, whether it is Christianity, I just want people to understand that no matter what, we need to stay together. And nobody will buy the every-team-makes-its-own-determination argument that has undercut the Kaepernick story.

Martellus Bennett not only supports his brother, Michael, plus Colin Kaepernick and others who have protested during the national anthem, but the Green Bay Packers tight end believes athletes should use their platform to speak out on social issues.

Kaepernick is a free agent, and the controversy over his decision to protest the anthem and the form he used has not quelled, even as he remains unsigned.

Theresa May attacks Donald Trump over refusal to condemn white supremacists
DONALD TRUMP has been criticised for not singling out white supremacist groups for criticism following deadly unrest in Virginia . The protest turned deadly when a auto plowed into a group of counter-protesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

"It's easy for me to support him in his issues".

Colin Kaepernick, a friend of Michael Bennett, opted out of his contract and left his team in March 2017. "I don't know where his intentions were, but I think there's a lot of bad information". I worry about the country and the world and the safety that we're in - not so much for myself, because I feel like I'm already (expletive) - but more for my daughter and my kids.

Bennett takes a different tack.

Asked about players who did not stand for the national anthem before preseason games, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday that while the playing of the anthem is a special moment to him, "we also have to understand the other side". Because they don't smell the way you smell and they don't eat what you eat, because they don't pray to the same god that you pray to, doesn't mean that you should hate them. He has been punished, and anyone who believes in the flag more than other human beings has made their voice heard. While he acknowledged the possibility of more widespread and organized protests, Bennett wanted to express himself.

Amazon 'Doing Great Damage' to Retailers, Cities
Many traditional retailers are closing stores and blaming Amazon for a shift to buying goods online. Amazon has a goal of adding 100,000 employees by the middle of next year.

"He said, 'This is something I have done for 11 years". "I don't want to be a distraction to my teammates, don't want to be a distraction to the organization or Pete (Carroll)". I should be driving a (expletive) flying auto right now. "I know you guys are reporters and you've got to make a story about something but I just think we're taking it too far".

"Of course I'm going to face backlash". "This is bigger than me". This is about people, this is about bringing opportunities to people, giving people equality. One of the bigger names in the sport, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, is now in the spotlight for failing to stand for the anthem.

"At the end of the day, you can't take your accolades with you".
