Donald Trump: NFL owners scared of players

In an interview with "Fox & Friends" that aired Thursday, Trump moved past his most common complaint of disrespect and cast peacefully protesting players as threats to their billionaire employers. "I couldn't even believe it", Trump said. And they're in a box. "All I can say is if that were to happen, we'll deal with it when it happens", Silver said.

Michele Green, who is president of PFPMA, told BuzzFeed that the mothers reached out to President Trump because they, too, were offended by his comments.

"They say, 'we are in a situation where we have to do something.' I think they're afraid of their players, you want to know the truth". When they're ready to get off their knees and make a difference, we'll be here to welcome them back with open arms.

AFL grand final: Richmond beat Adelaide in remarkable turnaround
Maurice Rioli made history in that game by becoming the first player from a losing side to win the Norm Smith medal. But the Richmond hierarchy kept faith with Hardwick and he repaid them with his first flag as an AFL senior coach.

During the Fox & Friends interview, Trump falsely claimed that the protests have caused National Football League ratings to fall - they were actually up last week - and urged owners to implement a rule prohibiting players from doing anything others than standing "with respect" during the anthem. Instead of asking professional athletes to forfeit their First Amendment right to protest peacefully, how about if we abandoned playing the National Anthem before every game? The image, depicting Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks burning an American flag in the locker room as teammates seem to cheer him on, has been shared tens of thousands of times, and a large portion of those sharing it are doing so without knowing that it's fake.

Some have argued that protesting during the national anthem demonstrates a lack of respect for the American flag and those that fought for our freedoms.

Fifteen percent of respondents said the new player safety rules ruined the game, while 42 percent disagreed and 43 percent were not sure. The NFL confirmed previous year that there is no requirement placed on players to stand for the song.

Hurricane Maria weakens as it moves north in Atlantic
Lee is the fifth major Atlantic hurricane of the 2017 season and has so far unleashed 115mph winds. "We see storm after storm". The Jones Act is a little-known federal law that prohibits foreign-flagged ships from shuttling goods between US ports.

Leading to the recent string of banter, President Trump initially had some critical remarks for players who chose to kneel for the anthem, calling for those to be "fired".

"The NFL can not disrespect our country", Trump said. "He's fired! He's fired!"

On a conference call on Friday morning, National Football League executive VP of communications Joe Lockhart agreed with the premise that the above meetings do indeed feature delicate conversations, and that's because players don't want to be told what to do, and no one wants it to appear as though they're telling them what to do.

Lloris: Kane Is Full Of Potential
All the strikers who are at this level have something special. "It is September, so I expect him to score". I think both are so good and both fit perfectly for us.
