NFL Owner on Protests: 'Can't Have the Inmates Running the Prison'

NFL Owner on Protests: 'Can't Have the Inmates Running the Prison'

Meanwhile, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Texas wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins' absence from Friday's practice was "related" to McNair's remarks.

Sherman criticized McNair's apology, saying, "You meant what you said", and adding that he wished more people would reveal their true colors.

The Texans expect Hopkins and all other Texans to be with the team Saturday when they're scheduled to fly to Seattle to take on the Seahawks the following day.

Rookie defensive tackle Nazair Jones simply responded to news of McNair's statement with a thinking-face emoji.

Forty-niners owner Jed York and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie spoke next; York emphasized that each market was different while Lurie supported his players' right to kneel. Our coaching staff's 100 percent behind these players. "But we will be there when the ball is kicked off in Seattle".

However, the report said the players in the meeting said they felt the owners "were being duplicitous; they were empathetic to their concerns behind closed doors but not publicly", according to the report.

The NFL has been rocked by the recent wave of protests, which started past year when then San Fransisco player Colin Kaepernick "took a knee" during the anthem to protest against widespread police brutality and racial discrimination.

The Texans have been one of the few teams in the National Football League this season that hasn't had any of their players stage an anthem protest. Since Trump's September remarks, some players have continued to sit or kneel during the anthem or raise their fist upon its conclusion.

It seems the National Basketball Association and NFL are linked now more than ever when it comes to politics, and pro athletes are standing up for one another regardless of what sport they play.

"It's frustrating the climate we're in, as a country, as a league. We respect our flag", Trump said to loud applause at the campaign event in Alabama. We can't let you get out of line. "He's fired! He's fired!'"

Kaepernick is expected to be invited to the next meeting between owners and players. New York Jets linebacker Demario Davis also was at the meeting. But first things first, Kaepernick needs to be signed to an NFL team because as long as he remains a free agent, the talks will continue and it further demonstrates that the NFL and its exclusive club of owners are blackballing him from the league.
