Entire Seahawks Team May Protest National Anthem On 9/11

The Seattle Seahawks may protest the national anthem as a team before Sunday’s opening game, the Seattle Times reported.

Along with attention-seekers like NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe, the entire Seattle Seahawks team will protest the national anthem.

The protest could take place during Sunday’s opening game against the Miami Dolphins which is also the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, in which approximately 3,000 men and women lost their lives at the hands of cowardly terrorists.

The team reportedly has the support of head coach Pete Carroll, who recently stood up for cornerback Jeremy Lane when he sat during the national anthem in solidarity with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last Thursday before Seattle’s final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.

This disturbing report leads us to ask the NFL to step in and take action against any athlete that participates.  We will be waiting….

    Why did the U.S.kill defenseless women and children here in the U.S. years ago? And all over the world and take people from Africa ect. My Dad was in the CC Camps,WWII and Korea.Back then they believed the lies.We know the truth now.He was a radioman for the Air Force that dropped bombs on men, women and children. For what? While your boycotting a game maybe you all can get off the computer and join up and support the ruling 1% and go fight for Big Pharma,Big Oil or go take over more people or land we don’t need.

    “This disturbing report” <—WHAT??? hahahahaah you pussy. That's a disturbing report? Call your Mother you baby.

    This is a lie, the team never said they were going to protest. On player on the team said they were going to come together to show unity. He never said what that unity was going to be fore. How about we wait and see before we condemn. I think we are in for a positive suprise here.

    You poor dears. Do you need a safe space?

    Wow, talk about horrible reporting. The actual statement by Seahawks’ receiver Doug Baldwin was that the team would be honoring the country and flag, but would make a demonstration of unity. Just the slightest bit of actual research would have told you that without you having to create a bogus headline for click bait. Oh and while we’re on the subject of research, ex-Navy S.E.A.L. and ex Seahawk Nate Voter was asked and he stated he agrees with their demonstration and said it will be a “powerful moment” as he already knows their plan.

      You’ve seen the types of articles here, the majority of them like this one here. Every once an a while they have a story with some substance. But don’t forget, this site isn’t an news organization.

    Its called freedom of speech, that right doesn’t only apply if you agree with the person. The first amendment is JUST as important as the second!

    Meanwhile Chicago keeps setting records for homicides and shootings. Yet not a peep to stop it.

    • bacchys

      That’s what police are for.

        Oh right. And if they try to stop it, then Kaepernick and his clown posse will make an issue out of that. Since when are these crybabies lacking opportunities? The things they are protesting over are not measurable, so how will they know if they have succeeded?

        • bacchys

          So, you’re one of those who think we have to let cops get away with rape and murder?

          • usaok59

            If we read my comment you will see that’s not what I said. I said there will never be enough progress because you can’t measure their abstract goals. Don’t put words “into my mouth”.

    If members of the NFL want to protest the country that affords them such overpaid salaries to play a game, then I for one will boycott the NFL, no watching oh tv therefore sponsor money is ill spent as it will not reach me. Since the NFL is all about revenue I say boycott and hit them in their money belts.

  9. Sue Rawson

    boycott the games… they’re totally overpaid… by a long shot anyway… and have no clue what in hell they are standing up for… just like BLM… as a matter of fact, why don’t they spread some of that over earned money around to their crying ghetto folks?
