NFL Players Kneel Again After Trump Insists Protests End

Ahead of NFL games, Trump again calls on players to stand during anthem

Players and teams throughout the NFL continued to protest during the national anthem before games in Week 4 of the season.

More than 200 players either knelt or used other means as expressions of unity last weekend.

Colin Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, started the form of protest previous year to draw attention to police killings of unarmed black people and the oppression of minorities.

This shall be done in parallel across India as well. "13 FOBs in Western Railway approved for widening and 10 new FOBs approved". There have been calls for widening and repairing the bridge, which has to cope with a huge rush of people between the stations.

Donald Trump has told the entire NFL that it is "very important" they stand for the national anthem on Sunday to "respect our flag and our country" amid the 'Take a Knee' protests that have engulfed the game. The three players who had knelt stood for the British anthem "God Save the Queen", which was also performed before the game. No player kneeled. Every Jaguars player took a knee before the playing of the national anthem but stood during the song.

Unlike last week when the Pittsburgh Steelers stood in the tunnel during the national anthem, players were on the sideline as the anthem was performed.

Other teams, such as the Lions and Jets, opted to lock arms during the national anthem.

The Fox television network's broadcast of the day's first game, at Wembley Stadium, showed three members of the Miami Dolphins kneeling as USA music star Darius Rucker performed "The Star Spangled Banner". The protests culminated a week ago when scores of players, following calls by the president to fire protesting athletes, sat or knelt as the anthem was played.

On Saturday, he reiterated his stance on the protests. Like the protests that led to the Black Lives Matter movement, Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid were trying to bring attention the extra-judicial killings of unarmed black men, women, and children by police officers.

It is outrageously inappropriate to protest a cause by disrespecting the American flag or national anthem. "Respect our Flag and our Country!" However, Mark Dodson, an engineer, said the protests were "absolutely a global initiative" and "a sign of solidarity between different races, different backgrounds, different everything basically, which is great to see". He later shifted to kneeling after speaking with former National Football League player and Green Beret Nate Boyer, who told Kaepernick he felt it would be more respectful than sitting. He has also encouraged NFL fans to boycott the league.
