The police union had offered its members the ticket discounts because, according to them, "the franchise said they were going to honor all first responders" and require players to stand for the anthem.

Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson were the only players to kneel during the anthem, the Miami Herald notes, while teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist.

The Miami Dolphins did not immediately return a request for comment. Political analysts have predicted Mr. Trump would seek to keep the issue alive to energise supporters ahead of November's crucial mid-term elections, framing protesters as unpatriotic and disrespectful to the military. "Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that a lot of them are unable to define".

Jordan is just one of many players who has questioned why Trump would get involved with the debate over the protests. Find another way to protest.

"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem".

But despite the margin of victory Sarri concedes the Chelsea players are still not playing at the level he wants them to be. Eden Hazard's introduction took Chelsea to another level and the Belgian teed up Pedro for a third in the closing stages.

The NFL previously sought to impose a new policy that would have prevented any player from kneeling or protesting during the national anthem without being penalized.

Jordan was one of the several Saints players to sit during the anthem last season, and he also had talks with quarterback Drew Brees about promoting social justice, TMZ reports. "You can't say as a league that you support the players and the protest and then blackball the players that initially started the protest".

"It's a peaceful protest", Wilson said after Thursday's game.

While Trump may not be able to suspend National Football League players, we guarantee he'll continue tweeting about the issue throughout the entire season so he can distract his racist fans from seeing how much of a dumpster fire his administration has been.
