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:

President Trump decided to reignite his feud with the NFL after seeing the story on this morning’s episode of FOX & Friends.
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

This isn’t the first time the President has called for the league to punish players who kneel during the anthem – and it certainly won’t be the last.
Do you agree with President Trump?
