NFL players kneel for 'Star-Spangled Banner' and stand for 'God Save the Queen

Protests spread across the National Football League over the weekend following President Trump's explicit remarks at an Alabama rally where he called athletes who kneel during the national anthem "sons of b******."

While protests continue throughout the league, it was ironic to witness players kneel for America's “Star-Spangled Banner” yet stand for England’s “God Save the Queen" at a game in London this morning.

The game was between the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars where players, owners, and coaches locked arms on the sidelines while others knelt during America's national anthem.

Pat surprisingly agreed with everything President Trump said over the weekend about athletes who kneel during the national anthem and said choosing to stand isn't about minorities, it's about respect for our country.

"During America's national anthem on foreign soil ... that's despicable. I mean that makes it even worse. That exemplifies the problem about tenfold," asserted Pat.

Tonight the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Arizona Cardinals and many are anxious to see how players will react to the president's remarks, specifically the Dallas Cowboys. A false rumor surrounding Jerry Jones' stance on the issue has been floating around social media and many are anticipating his reaction at tonight's game.
