What a great way for a team to lose even more fans and followers. Just disrespect our country and flag for Veterans day weekend!!
Everybody knows that Colin Kaepernick’s polarizing decision to protest the national anthem was a stupid thing to do! Honoring and respect the flag of our nation is also paying respect for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep of nation safe and free.
Now they’vee went one step further by disrespecting our anthem and standing for the Mexican anthem!
The Raiders and the Patriots traveled to play a game in Mexico City during Week 11 of the NFL season. And it appears, at least in one case, they brought their politics with them.
Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has not stood for the U.S. national anthem at all this year, and he continued that practice in Mexico City on Sunday. However, when it was time for the Mexican anthem to be played, suddenly Lynch felt inspired to stand:

The protest from Lynch, appeared to be the only protest from either team during the anthem.
NFL players protest is a national sick joke!! They picked the wrong forum and manner on this issue. The national anthem and flag are honored at sporting events for veterans that served and gave their life for our country. NFL players abuse women and yes there are some bad cops but Disrespecting Country, veterans, and a flag is a dishonor, not a protest!! The right to protest does not make it right!!
The American majority is sick and tired of NFL players using the field as a platform to spew their political views. Disrespecting our flag and our anthem is not the way to protest nor the place to protest! We The People are pissed at the disrespect to our military and our country!
Some of NFL’s biggest sponsors are now regretting their decision to stand by NFL because they now suffer a huge loss because of the anthem protests!
