New Trump outburst after another National Football League team takes a knee

New Trump outburst after another National Football League team takes a knee”

He added, "The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard". About 12% of those surveyed said they had watched fewer games than they had in previous years.

Two National Football League teams have been largely steered clear of a controversy over national anthem protests that have ensnared US President Donald Trump and threatened to damage the game's popularity, staging a pre-game "moment of unity" instead.

"Star-Spangled Banner" along with the Dallas Cowboys, who knelt before the song.

THE FACTS: NFL games shown to a national audience averaged 16.04 million viewers for the first two weeks of this season, down 11 percent from the 18.1 million people who watched during the same period previous year, the Nielsen company said.

Over the weekend, Trump said owners should fire players who protested.

The NFL, for its part, was not all that eager to continue the back-and-forth with Trump.

There were certainly those in the organization offended by President Trump saying, "Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b- off the field right now?' Out!"

Garrett said that while they wanted to demonstrate, they did not want to disrespect the flag or the national anthem.

KELLY: President Trump has criticized players for kneeling during the national anthem. Though Sparks made no official statement about the verses, the intent behind them seems to indicate her support for the kneeling players' cause.

Those offended include some individuals who may have supported, and still support, the president.

The Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans followed the Steelers' lead, staying in the locker room for the anthem. The Baltimore Ravens' Terrell Suggs and the Denver Broncos' Von Miller lent their considerable star power to the protests, kneeling along with dozens of others players.

For football fans, though, chances are they were attracted by better games.

Trump has been locked in a days-long feud with NFL players, owners and league officials over the symbolic gesture meant to draw attention to racial injustice in the United States.

The White House defended the president's remarks on Monday, saying that it is "always appropriate" for the president of the United States to "defend" the flag and the anthem.

"Well, when you call people sons of bitches across the board, that offends everybody. What kind of a statement is that to make?"

There's still a long way to go, obviously, but the Rams have clearly established themselves as one of the most promising, up-and-coming teams in the league right now.
