Seahawks React To New NFL National Anthem Policy

Seahawks React To New NFL National Anthem Policy

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll agreed with the overall sentiment expressed by Wilson and Baldwin that he felt the teams and players "were in the process of figuring this out and how to put it together", - essentially hinting that there wouldn't have been protests this season.

"I think it's just typical of the NFL", Kerr said at Thursday's shootaround in Houston before the Warriors play the Rockets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.

The timing of the announcement of the new policy could not be worse. The policy stated players would not be required to be on the field for the anthem, but if they were on the field and they took a knee, their team would be fined. "I will say even if we wind up having a (schedule of fines) here, I really don't expect it to be an issue with this team". "And it has nothing to do with kneeling". It's never been about that. If players want to protest the national anthem, they will have the option to do so in the locker room, away from cameras. "I'm just going to go along with them and be a part of this league". Guess what, we probably disagree on other issues, too.

Davis, the son of an Army veteran, has a unique perspective with regards to the protest.

"I'm proud to be in a league that understands patriotism in America is about free speech", Kerr said.

Davis said his father served 28 years and nine tours in the Army. "I think the people pushed it forward", Trump said. "I think this illustration of new statement of what is going to be and all that is going to have an effect and we are going to have to deal with that and I was kind of liking the way it was going". York said he didn't feel comfortable making a decision without directly involving the players' union. Carroll, his players and those around the National Football League are now trying to figure out how to tackle the polarizing topic in the locker room.

US talks tough, to impose 'strongest sanctions in history' on Iran
At the same time, he noted he is "not totally pessimistic about the situation". "Countries have their independence", he added. Russian Federation and China have also criticized the USA move and vowed to maintain trade with Iran.

Players were not consulted in the creation of the policy and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's claim that the new policy was passed in a unanimous vote by the owners is proving to be false.

Quarterback Drew Brees has family ties to the military, too, and he cited those each time he discussed the protests past year. It requires that all players stand if they are on the field when the national anthem is played.

This week we got a powerful snapshot of two very different versions of what patriotism is, and in a way, America's own brand image, from two unlikely sources.

Players who do not "show respect for the flag" will be fined for their actions. "Most people who believe that ignore the responses from the players and more importantly why men chose to protest".

Ever since I was little I've always loved my Chicago Bears. But I go back to my earlier statement. Just because somebody has an issue with something going on in this country they should pack up and leave? I think we were more united. Nationalism is just loving your country just to love it. "Maybe they shouldn't be in the country".

Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell, admittedly conflicted last season before deciding to join over a dozen teammates in protest during the anthem at the Baltimore Ravens game in London, did his best to straddle the diplomatic fence Thursday after the team's OTA session.
