Imploding Seattle Seahawks Lead NFL In National Anthem Disrespecting Protests
Perhaps the teams in the NFL should consider banning protesting during the national anthem for an entirely new reason.
Locker room division, and a gangsta mentality taking over the team.
Seattle is an excellent example of that, as the injuries pile up, the quality of play decreases, the losses mount, and what thin veiner of unity is torn away. Arguments on the sideline, fighting with fans, other players, ejections from games in consecutive weeks, and just generally imploding.
Certainly not the picture of unity the team had before racist black players began demanding Criminal Affirmative Action with their protests. As if black criminals shouldn’t be held equally accountable under the law? Please.
That attitude that is pervasive in these protests are why the NFL is losing millions of fans. Ratings are plummeting, and the NFL was suicidal enough to give Roger “Mr PC” Goodell a 5 year contract extension.
So, while Rome burns, per say, Seattle leads the league in asinine behavior during the national anthem.
While 12 players of the National Football League’s (NFL) Seattle Seahawks protested during the National Anthem, most teams with protesters had only one in Week 15.
Here are the players who protested the National Anthem, by team, at this week’s NFL games, per ESPN:
Seattle Seahawks (12): Defensive limen Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Nazair Jones, Dion Jordan, Sheldon Richardson, Marcus Smith III, Quinton Jefferson, Jarran Reed, Frank Clark and Branden Jackson and linebacker Paul Dawson all sat during the Anthem. Tackle Duane Brown knelt.
San Francisco 49ers (4): Safety Eric Reid, receiver Marquise Goodwin, linebacker Eli Harold and receiver Louis Murphy knelt during the National Anthem.
Oakland Raiders (1): Running back Marshawn Lynch remained seated during the National Anthem.
Tennessee Titans (1): Wide receiver Rishard Matthews stayed in the locker room during the playing of the Anthem.
Los Angeles Rams (1): Linebacker Robert Quinn raised a fist in protest during the Anthem.
New York Giants (1): Defensive end Olivier Vernon knelt during the Anthem.
