POLL: Should players stand for the national anthem?
During the National Anthem on Monday’s football game, over 30 players from the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans, knelt in protest, according to Breitbart News.
18 Denver Broncos and 13 Tennessee Titans took a knee and/or raised fists in protest.
According to the Denver Post:
“Linebacker Bradley Chubb, wideout Jerry Jeudy, running back Melvin Gordon and safeties Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson were among the Broncos who knelt, while defensive linemen Jurrell Casey and DeMarcus Walker stood with a fist raised.”
“Also kneeling for the Broncos were Malik Reed, Michael Ojemudia, Royce Freeman, Essang Bassey, P.J. Locke, Bryce Callahan, Duke Dawson, A.J. Bouye, Davontae Harris, Dre’Mont Jones, Shelby Harris, Lloyd Cushenberry and Calvin Anderson.”
Together with the players, we will continue to listen, grow and work to inspire change.

The NFL has seen a major crash in ratings following similar social justice demonstrations, dropping by nearly 30 percent.

As for the Titans who protested, those were Rodger Saffold, Nate Davis, Rashaan Evans, Jayon Brown, Amani Hooker, Kenny Vaccaro, David Long, Kristian Fulton, Tye Smith, Jeffery Simmons, Joshua Kalu, Isaiah Mack and MyCole Pruitt.
Both teams stood for the playing of the “black national anthem.”
