Steve Kerr of Golden State Warriors blasts new National Football League anthem policy

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson talks to reporters following NFL football practice Thursday

"Over the past year, the president of the United States has been railing against NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest causes dear to them".

"You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or you shouldn't be playing", Trump said. But some leftists seem to be trying to figure out what their next move will be to irk pro-American football fans.

"I think our leadership in the National Basketball Association understands that the NFL players were kneeling to protest police brutality, to protest racial inequality". No, I don't think there is a way to satisfy everyone.

The NFL Game Operations Manual, which previously mandated that all players must be on the field for the Anthem has been revised, with that provision removed.

"By not standing for the Pledge of Allegiance you're slapping the face of our veterans", Stevenson said.

It's also possible there may be some kneelers still.

Of all 32 owners, New York Jets Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson have taken the firmest stance against the ban, saying he'll pay any fines incurred by his players. It's unclear if other owners will follow suit.

"Well, I think that's good", Trump told Fox and Friends.

"Imagine if players decide as a team to not come out for the national anthem". "You shouldn't be there".

One of the candidates for governor applauds the NFL's national anthem decision, but she's already given up her Titans tickets in protest. "The owners write the rules. They were getting exhausted of the lower attendance and public upset because of this". "And I think that's the difference between patriotism and nationalism". They've got a commissioner who takes $40 million per year. "We want people to stand - that's all personnel - and make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion. They're looking at China, France and Germany".

". Everybody is not going to agree on things, everybody is not going to have the same opinion on things, so just because somebody disagrees on something, an issue, with something that's going on in this country, that they should pack up and leave - that's absurd, in my opinion". "Most people who believe that ignore the responses from the players and more importantly why men chose to protest".

"But now we've got a situation, quite frankly, that I think is a genie they can't put back in the bottle".

Trump's controversial remarks came as video emerged of another questionable encounter between USA police and a young black man - this time a professional basketball player. We want families to stick together.

"I am proud of how our team stuck together last season, even though I know there are forces outside our building and locker room trying to pull people apart".

In New York, Foy was joined by progressive talk radio host Mark Thompson, who wore a long shirt with a depiction of Kaepernick in his 49ers uniform taking a knee, and city councilman Jumaane Williams, who brought a Kaepernick No. 7 jersey to display after he spoke and wore a shirt with the slogan #IMWITHKAP across the front.
