Trump attacks National Football League protesters

Trump attacks National Football League protesters

The police union had offered its members the ticket discounts because, according to them, "the franchise said they were going to honor all first responders" and require players to stand for the anthem.

Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson were the only players to kneel during the anthem, while teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist before facing the Buccaneers.

The Miami Dolphins did not immediately return a request for comment.

Saints All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan took to Twitter Friday morning following President Donald Trump's Tweets regarding players who are protesting during the National Anthem. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action. A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest.

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he added.

Boxers vs briefs: Men who wear boxers have higher sperm count
However, other experts said they wouldn't make a flat-out recommendation for men to switch to boxers. So, gentlemen, increasing your sperm production is as simple as changing your underwear.

That didn't sit well with the players, though. "You can't say as a league that you support the players and the protest and then blackball the players that initially started the protest".

Trump, Tapper noted, is "once again seeing a divided nation and doing the opposite of trying to bring us together" by "giving a presidential megaphone to one side in a controversial cultural issue that sometimes stokes racial tensions".

But, that wasn't the most pointed Tweet at the president from Jordan.

Trump took notice of a small number of players who protested during the anthem in various ways.
