Trump blasts players who kneeled during the anthem

Malcolm Jenkins

He was joined on the sideline by cornerback De'Vante Bausby, who also raised his fist.

The Dolphins said they did not create a team policy regarding anthem protests heading into Thursday night's game, and coach Adam Gase had said he wouldn't address anthem protests with the team. "We couldn't just let things go".

Trump, as he has in the past, took notice.

Player demonstrations took place during the national anthem at several early NFL preseason games Thursday night.

He said the players were "at it again", and claimed they were showing outrage at something they are unable to define.

"A good first step as a league would be acknowledging what they're doing to Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid", Stills said, via USAToday.com's Lindsay Jones.

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans", the statement read. Trump suggested the players "find another way to protest".

Among the changes is the reversal of a rule that has long separated amateur from pro athletes. While that may seem like a big deal on its face, the fact that it's.

The NFL is working with its labor union on a new national anthem policy after the one it issued in May was not well received.

On Thursday, Miami Dolphins players Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Robert Quinn protested during the anthem, before facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Miami at a preseason game, according to ESPN.

The NFL chose to put a temporary hold on the implementation of that policy while it meets with the players' union to find a solution. "I think I made it clear that, for me, I'm always going to stand with my hand on my heart and I think that the people that don't, then they've got to answer to it, to the media".

In July, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he wanted all his players to stand during the anthem and they would not be able to stay indoors.

In May, NFL owners ratified a modified anthem policy which empowered the league to fine a team if a player protests during the anthem and left it up to each team whether a player would be disciplined for a protest. The vast majority of the league's contracts are not guaranteed, which means teams can often release players without paying the balance of their remaining contract.

In October, another poll also indicated that the NFL used to be the most liked sports league in America but after the wave of protests, it had become the least liked sports league.

All the way back in 2016, Kaepernick said that his protest was directed against racism and police brutality, aligning himself with the Black Lives Matter movement.
