Monday's Morning Email: The NFL Takes A Knee | HuffPost

The Huffington Post| Mon Sep 25 11:46:13 EDT 2017
THE NFL TAKES A KNEE Dozens of NFL players demonstrated by taking a knee during the national anthem on Sunday following President Donald Trump’s criticism on Friday against athletes that kneel. The Seattle Seahawks sat out the anthem, while the Pittsburgh Steelers also stayed off the field. The owner of the Jaguars, who is a Trump donor, linked arms with his players and called the president’s remarks “divisive.” Trump, insisting his criticism had nothing to do with race, called for an NFL boycott to stop the protests.
