Are national anthem protests coming to Pittsburgh next?

Kneeling in a circle in front of the bench, more than a dozen Browns staged the largest national anthem protest seen in the NFL over the past two seasons before Monday night's home game against the New York Giants at FirstEnergy Stadium.

We were just praying over the country and praying over things going on.

"There are issues in our country right now that are far bigger than football and I understand that and respect that as well", Jackson said as part of a prepared statement. But as some anonymous quotes from Sando's voters show, it's more complicated than that, and the main reason why Kaepernick is still a free agent is because of his national anthem protests.

"The issue is that [the U.S.] doesn't provide equal opportunity to everybody", he said.

"The National Museum of African American History and Culture has almost 40,000 items in our collection", Damion Thomas, the Washington museum's sports curator, told USA Today Sports in an email. We wanted to draw attention to the fact that there are things in the country that still need to change.

Kizer said, "In a time where this country is kind of all over the place in the sense of human rights and the racist movements, I decided that it was right for me to join my brothers who made a decision to take a knee by supporting them when they're praying". That's why I did what I did.

The NFL needs to institute a rule that protects players against retaliatory actions taken by owners and sponsors for protests like Colin Kaepernick's, the organizers of a rally in support of the quarterback write in a new letter to the NFL.

Flood emergency issued for Kansas City
Police say voluntary evacuations were in effect at Indian Creek from 103rd and Stateline to Wornall Road and 99th and Holmes. The flooding prompted several schools in the region to either cancel Tuesday's classes or delay the start of them.

Hue Jackson said last week his players should embrace the platform they have as National Football League players to improve our community and use their platform in a positive, thoughtful and respectful manner.

"We have to tear down and be honest about this discussion", he said.

However, he told Raiders head coach Jack del Rio that he has sat throughout the United States national anthem for the entirety of his 11-year career which until now, no-one had noticed.

The participation of DeValve in the protest comes after Seattle Seahawks' Michael Bennett claimed last week that the movement would be more effective if white players became involved.

Yet, while owners like Mara, who gave abusive kicker Josh Brown a job previous year, are hung up on the anthem demonstrations, everything else Kaepernick is doing gets ignored. "I think coaches are like, 'Look, if this kid is not starting for us, why are you bringing in distractions not for a starter?" "I think they all support each other".

"You always have to, with everything you do, you have to have respect first and foremost, and we did it in a way, we were saying a prayer", said linebacker Christian Kirksey.

The organizers of the protest say they have requested a meeting with Goodell.
