Jabrill Peppers Explains Why He Knelt For The National Anthem

Ben Mc Adoo should get a better sense of where his team is at Monday with his starting units set to play

NFL players have been sitting, kneeling or raising a fist during the national anthem since former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling before games previous year.

"We respect our players; we respect the flag", Jackson said following Monday's 10-6 win over the New York Giants.

On top of those kneeling, DeShone Kizer, Britton Colquitt, Jason McCourty, and Shon Colema stood nearby in support of the same cause. "Today is Tuesday. We said that we would have that great conversation tomorrow. The issue is that it doesn't provide equal opportunity to everybody", DeValve told ESPN.

"At a time where this country is kind of all over the place in the sense of human rights and racist movements, I decided that it was right for me to join my brothers who chose to take a knee by supporting them in their decision to pray", he said.

"Just a group of guys, we just wanted to get together, take a knee and say a prayer, especially during a time that a lot of things are going on", Kirksey said. Bennett was next, citing the violence in Charlottesville. Since then there have been other protests, but this was the largest of its kind. This month an alt-right rally tinged with neo-Nazism and white supremacy in Charlottesville ended with violence when a man with ties to white supremacy plowed his vehicle into a group of counterprotesters, killing one woman and injuring at least 19.

Natalya eventually blind-tagged a distracted Carmella, who was hit with a Beck-sploder suplex and Naomi's split-legged moonsault. Roode got a massive reaction. - After the match, the former NXT and TNA Champion does an in-ring interview with Renee Young.

In an interview with ESPN, Kirksey said of the demonstration, "We did it out of respect. Of course not", Boldin said, according to the Associated Press.

"And if you don't see why you need allies for people that are fighting for equality right now, I don't think you'll ever see it". Boldin became involved in criminal-justice reform after his cousin was killed by a plain-clothes police officer in 2015. But the protests, which focus on injustice against minorities, had not previously been carried out by white players. It seems particularly courageous given how fans and the media have villainized Kaepernick for his decision to protest.

"I want to know why National Football League players aren't offering voices of dissent". I won't know about the next game until it happens. Browns Coach Hue Jackson had recently discouraged his players from protesting in that way, saying, "I would hope that we don't have those issues". I think we would all admit and be the first to say that we are all so fortunate to live in this fantastic country.

Many people have spoken out against the protests, including Tennessee Rep. Judd Matheny, who called out Governor Bill Haslam on the Browns' players protest. Whether this will lead to Kaepernick getting re-signed or criminal-justice reform remains unclear.
