Team USA Hockey Coach: Stand For The Anthem Or ‘Sit On The Bench’
Stand up, or sit on the bench.
That’s the sentiment expressed by the coach of hockey’s Team USA, John Tortorella.
Tortorella, the Columbus Blue Jackets coach who will be making the calls for the American team in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, told ESPN that he will not tolerate any players sitting in solidarity with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“If any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game,” he said, reporter Linda Cohn tweeted.
