National Football League must change or its 'business is going to go to hell'

But the president should have used better judgment in taking on the issue.

The Miami Dolphins were united in protest during the national anthem on Sunday.

Trump made the debate political, and it led to backlash among players and fans alike.

The president's comment brought new attention to the movement, angering players, coaches and owners.

US President Donald Trump is keeping up his running commentary on the NFL. "Players will stand for Country!" "Jerry is a victor who knows how to get things done".

Brees stood on the sideline for the anthem, his hand firmly over his heart while almost a dozen teammates sat behind him on the bench in protest of Trump's remarks.

Instead, Adams has taken to their personalities away from basketball enough to condone one of them knocking him in the chin. It's just that era, where you got to face teams that are gonna have two or three guys that can take over games.

"To me, the National Football League situation is a very important situation", Trump responded.

"All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests / Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK", he wrote on Twitter, according to CNN.

Protests during the national anthem came into the limelight when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick staged a silent protest during the 2016 preseason when he first Saturday.

I absolutely support the right of all Americans to peacefully express their opinions. "I stand during the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem and I kneel at night for the country, because we need more prayer now than ever".

The co-founder of the group says they want the National Football League and its players to go even further and take a stand against police brutality and not just link arms or take a knee to defend a teammate or to defend freedom of speech. He just doesn't agree with the method of that protest. He says those players should be fired if they take a knee during the anthem, and calls those players a name I never thought I'd live long enough to hear a president say.

"I think it's important for people, service members especially, to speak on supporting Kaepernick's actions, because it's a foundational action of patriotism to peacefully protest a perceived slight by the state", activated Army reservist Koran Hackman, 22, said in an email interview. "A massive effort is underway, and we have been treated very nicely by the governor and everybody else", he added, head-scratchingly.
