Only 1 question

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ok guys, I'm gonna make this very brief. I have only one question to ask. In the game against Oakland, did ANY Saints player or coach remain seated or kneel instead of standing during the National Anthem?...

Not that I know of. Knowing Sean Payton, I am sure he addressed that, as I expect Bill Belichick did with the Patriots.

No, it was clean benches on both sides of the field.

The flag they unfold on the field was also MUCH bigger than usual yesterday. It rocked!

Re: Only 1 question

Thank you. Then I will continue to support our team, but I will not support any team that allows any of its players to disrespect the country that has entitled them to become wealthy. I will turn off any game where even one player disrespects our country. I am now even MORE PROUD of my team for continuing to show their respect for America.

You won't be watching the 49ers Rams game tonight then.
Early night!

The thing some players are doing by raising a fist, but still standing, I do not mind. I think that is a respectful way to show solidarity with their message while also respecting the flag.

Not so sure about that. The raised fist during the anthem is the symbol of the Black Panthers. Last year the former leader of the New Black Panther Party, Malik Zulu Shabazz, called for the Panthers to rise up and build an army to kill police on his radio program. The shooter in the Dallas police killings was a member of the Black Panthers facebook page. On many levels the raised fist is more disturbing than kneeling or sitting.

I agree. They thought they were getting around it, but they ended basically fist bumping with the black Panthers, whether or not they realized it. I don't know how they wouldn't have realized it though.
