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….
