Miami Dolphins stay off the field during national anthem

Miami Dolphins stay off the field during national anthem”

All three of the players who did not participate have kneeled in protest of social injustices in the past. Other players stood with their arms locked. He formed Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality (RISE) in Miami, which continually dialogues with leaders in the community about issues involving the city's different cultures and minority groups.

Players had been kneeling during the national anthem since the start of last season, but the issue has become more controversial in recent weeks after becoming a target from President Donald Trump. "It's about the work that we are doing and it's never been about the protest or the flag or any of that".

A week earlier, the same three players had taken a knee during the anthem in London, before their game against the New Orleans Saints. Gase said the decision did not come from ownership. Then, the team stood for the anthem.

"If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones said on Sunday after the team played the Green Bay Packers, ESPN reported.

The Dolphins who were on the field stood.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys players Damontre Moore and David Irving raised their fists toward the end of the anthem.

"We made our expression". Stills sat out the national anthem on Sunday.

The NFL Players Association released a statement Sunday defending the players' constitutional rights to protest peacefully.

"I know our players who kneeled for the anthem and these are smart young men of character who want to make our world a better place for everyone", Ross remarked at that time.

The topic was raised again when Vice President Mike Pence left the San Francisco 49ers-Indianapolis Colts game, which saw several players take a knee during the national anthem.
