Trump the last one eligible to speak of patriotism

President Donald Trump has claimed that National Football League teams were "afraid" of their players, the latest foray into a racially charged debate over game-time protests. What I can say is there is a very regular dialogue going on between the players, coaches and owners, as this is an issue that gripped the headlines. And they're in a box. "We're not having the conversations on what does the flag actually mean and while it may mean one thing to me it may mean something else to somebody else", Albert says. Because the attacks have successfully gathered public and media attention, and they've successfully mobilized a base of individuals who hadn't reacted almost as strongly to an issue that had been hiding in plain sight for more than a year. "I've spoken to a couple of them they said we are in a situation where we have to do something. And they've got to be tough and they've got to be smart".

"We have to understand his rhetoric and at the same its very unusual for a President to speak this way and to use foul language and address it towards a particular group of individuals, towards the National Football League players", Albert says.

So that's it. The kneeling protest for the movement for black lives is over in Denver, and all players will stand during the national anthem Sunday when the Broncos take on the Oakland Raiders. No white NFL players participated in protests during the national anthem until last month. We will stand and remove our hats during the playing of the national anthem at local sporting events. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. So here's an important reminder: Courts have held that schools can not compel students to participate in patriotic rituals like standing for the national anthem or saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

Aaron Rodgers and members of the Green Bay Packers link arms during the national anthem. He added that while he would prefer Cowboys players stand, there is no mandatory order. Many who protested for this in some way include: Eric Reid, Brandon Marshall, Jurrell Casey, Martellus Bennett, Devin McCourty, Marcus Peters, Colin Kaepernick, and many more.

Trump re-ignited the debate about players protesting during the anthem at a rally last Friday in Alabama.

"You can not have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country, and that's what they're doing. He's fired! He's fired!"

However, NFL spokesperson Joel Lockhart believes that Trump's statements are "inaccurate".
