How are anthem protests playing in CNY?

26 Septembre 2017

For many players in the predominantly black National Football League, the president's rebuke smacked of racism, and some teams responded Sunday by staying in the locker room during the anthem, while other teams took the field, where some players knelt, others sat and still others stood during the anthem.

Numerous boos rang out across University of Phoenix Stadium as the Cowboys kneeled and continued as the players rose, still arm-in-arm, and stepped back to the sideline as the flag was unfurled across the field.

The Dallas Cowboys team and ownership kneel with their arms linked before the national anthem at Monday night's game. Arizona players also stood and linked arms during the anthem, but they did not take a knee beforehand. It's important to note the team kneeled before the national anthem, and then stood up during it. "Big progress being made- we all love our country!" the president added.

It was the team's coordinated response to President Donald Trump's controversial remarks over the weekend regarding player protests during the anthem over social injustice, police brutality and racism.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said before that he deeply respects the national anthem.

And the protest controversy sparked by Trump this weekend hasn't exactly been a ratings boon for all National Football League games.

"It's about equal rights, and that's all everyone is trying to show is that we all care about each other", Walker said. On Friday, he said protesting players should be fired.

For their part, Cardinals players took a page from several teams on Sunday by linking arms while the anthem played.

"Cowboys players told the Star-Telegram that a statement had to be made because Trump 'crossed a line". "Great anger", Trump tweeted.

"I support them more than I support Donald Trump right now for his actions", he said.

The Cowboys have adhered to those wishes since the anthem protests were started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last season.
