'Stand for National Anthem' Petition Started by Trump

This week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell held a series of press conferences to attempt to stop the bleeding from the outcry over mass national anthem protests which have gripped the NFL.

His continued unemployment is believed by many to be a result of NFL owners colluding to keep him out of the league because of his political stance, and Kaepernick has even filed a grievance against the league for the alleged collusion. Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning.

In contrast to Trump, who has scorned any player who protests as a "son of a bitch" who should face suspension, Goodell praised the athletes as political activists trying to improve their communities.

He said, "Can't ascertain religion of suspects by external appearances like tilak or earrings as it could be done to mislead". The SIT released two CCTV footages from the date of crime i.e., September 5, 2017.

Trump's remarks sparked a furious backlash amongst NFL players, team owners and league officials, with large-scale protests by players during the anthem in the weekend following the president's tirade. And it's also for us to honor our flag and our country, and we think our fans expect us to do that. DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the NFL Players Association, and players were invited to attend a meeting to discuss protests taking place during the national anthem. The demonstrations began past year with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been unable to find a new team after leaving the 49ers. "We did not ask for that", Goodell said. Especially since many news sites had the number of players protesting in the hundreds. "That's what we had yesterday to make sure we understand one another and understand where they're coming from, and I think out of those discussions, they understand the owners and the National Football League really do care about their issues and what we can do to make the communities better".

He said the players "will state to you, and they have stated to everyone publicly, they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag", Goodell said.
