Miami Dolphins Owner Put All The Anthem Kneelers In Their Place He Just Did Something What No Other NFL Owner Would Do

The NFL is now at the epicenter of the culture war. A backlash against traditional American culture is taking the shape of mass protests by NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem. Even though this National Anthem madness caught almost every player and owner in the NFL, one owner still changed his mind and decided to stop their players for kneeling during the anthem.

After Miami Dolphins players refused to stand for the national anthem again this past Sunday, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has changed his view of how that time before NFL games should be handled. According to t him, President Donald Trump has changed the meaning of what it means to protest at that time.

“Trump has made [standing for anthem] about patriotism,” Ross said before the Dolphins game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. “It’s so important if that’s what the country is looking at to look at [the protest] differently.”

“It’s a different dialogue today. Whenever you’re dealing with the flag, you’re dealing with something different. [The President] has changed that whole paradigm of what protest is.”

He added: “I think it’s incumbent upon the players today, because of how the public is looking at it, to stand and salute the flag.”

Ross said he sees sports as a way of uniting and spreading a message of togetherness, especially with the youth.

“Right now [with] these kids you want understanding, that we really have to get out into the white community and have them accept the fact this isn’t about all black kids and the protest they have,” Ross said.

Coach Adam Gase implemented a policy Sunday requiring players to stand for the national anthem. Those who don’t wish to stand must stay in the locker room or in the tunnel.

I think it may be past that now. They’ve already shown how they feel about the flag, the anthem, and the country. We can’t un-see that. I’m not saying they should never be forgiven, but I think we are going to need some heartfelt apologies.

Even though Stephen Ross did a nice gesture, still it is so sad you have to make players stand for our National Anthem! You should never have to “buy” respect for the flag and patriotism. Forcing them to stand for the National Anthem won’t do. That does not mean they are sincere!

    I think this guy is an idiot. President Trump did not change the meaning of the US Flag 🇺🇸 or the National Anthem. The meaning of these things is now, and has always been, to honor those who have served in the Armed Forces for love ❤️ of their Country. So, so many have literally given their lives to protect this Country and its Citizens.

    Yes, he is right about one thing. And it is true, as he has pointed out, that our Citizens can’t really believe these NFL morons are truly sorry for their disrespectful behavior towards our Country’s Flag and National Anthem. So I guess the only thing we Citizens can do is to keep boycotting the NFL until the Citizens receive a verbal apology from every NFL protester, all Team Owner who allowed and took part in the protest, along with Mr Goodell.

    This is an evasion. He’s trying to play both sides by not being definitive in his stance. Every game in every sport starts with the playing of the national anthem. It gives thanks that we live in a country that is stable and prosperous enough to have organized sports rather than having our able bodied people fighting for daily survival in the chaos of war, that we are safe enough and have enough excess energy and skills to waste in non-fatal diversion.
    So, again, this owner hasn’t put anyone in their place. The NFL wants to operate in stadiums in our country? Employ athletes that have been afforded American sports and educational systems? Then show some respect to the Nation the flag represents by standing for our National Anthem while facing the flag with hand over heart, or go play in another country.

    This owner won’t impress me until he makes it a rule of his organization that either those who show up for the game stand and play, or they’re not part of the team. Period.

    I agree with Rick. Those that disparage the emblems and flag of our democratic Republic should reevaluate their position. If it is so bad, make your displeasure known in a way that allows for debate without misguided disrespect. Ignorance of ones responsibilities to this Republic is not something those ignorant ones should parade openly. It only magnifies their own mental deficiencies and makes them seem to be in the same vein as the terrorists we despise so.
    Let us get back to what made this country so good that many citizens of a vast majority of countries want to come here; or, at least, wanted to. I, for one, am for benching for the game any person that wishes to show their protestation in this way. If they continue…ignorance is not bliss in this instance…they should be made to……(fill in the blank)
    Let the people be heard.
