You will probably see some websites springing some fake news about the “entire Seattle Seahawks” team sitting during the national anthem. It’s click bait folks; it’s not real. The real story is members of the Seahawks are thinking about doing it.
Very disappointing! They are representing the Seattle Seahawks and the NFL, not the place to show their personal opinions. When these players attend an event as a fan/spectator, then they can choose to sit, not when they are on the job. They need to be thankful for all the opportunities our country has made possible for them, what another country would pay players what we do. They need to be making a positive impact, not a negative. I didn’t think our players were as ignorant and disrespectful as Kaepernick! What a way to start what should be a great Seahawk season
From Business Insider:
Two members of the Seattle Seahawks told the Seattle Times on Wednesday that the team is considering some form of protest during the national anthem ahead of their season opener against the Dolphins on Sunday.
“Anything we want to do, it’s not going to be individual,” Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “It’s going to be a team thing. That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”
He added: “Whatever we decide to do will be a big surprise.”
Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin echoed Wagner’s words, saying that the team had discussed some form of protest internally in their locker room.
“Our locker room has discussed it,” Baldwin said. “So we’ll see.”
At some point somebody has got to say, “Enough is enough.” Sooner or later maybe we need to realize that by protesting the Anthem, what we’re really doing is rejecting what that Anthem stands for – both the good and the bad…
And not one of us can afford to be judged only by our imperfections.
