Trump Has Hijacked National Anthem Issue — ESPN Announcer

One member of an National Football League coaching staff said the general manager asked the position coaches (who are often the lowest-ranked coaches but have the most contact with the players) to "feel out" which players might be thinking of taking a knee and to "talk to them".

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the trend when he knelt during the national anthem past year.

Albert Breer of the MMQB shared the following letter from Roger Goodell, which was sent to National Football League team presidents and chief executives on Tuesday afternoon. Their stunt showed the world that they don't believe our flag is worth standing for. At our September committee meetings, we heard directly from several players about why these issues are so important to them and how we can support their work.

"No player is disrespecting our Country or our Flag".

"If we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play". They kneeled and locked arms.

Gordon has grown to respect National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell despite all the suspensions. His first suspension came in 2014, and he remains suspended indefinitely from the league.

The manual now states that teams and players could face disciplinary action for not being on the field at the start of the game.

- Vice President Pence leaves game after players' kneel protest during anthem.

Two players on the Cowboys had raised their fists after the anthem Sunday.

Pence, a former governor of IN, was on hand to celebrate former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning's induction into the franchise's Ring of Honor. With 11 more weeks in the regular season the national anthem player protests will surely continue to shift the culture of the league resulting in extreme outcomes that will go down in history in the years to come.

President Trump also followed up with a tweet acknowledging Pence was acting under his instructions when he left the game. "I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen".

Per Miami Beach Police department policy, Miami-Dade detectives are investigating the officer-involved shooting. The BMW continued westbound on 12th Street where it struck a Pathfinder SUV and came to a rest.

Vice-President Pence walked out of a game on Sunday due to the players taking a knee.

Trump wrote on Monday that Pence's plans to attend the game were planned for some time. During a rally he had held stating: "Wouldn't you love to tell these National Football League players who disrespects our flag, 'get these sons of bitches off the field?' He is fired!"

"We live in a country that can feel very divided".

But your Vice President REFUSED to dignify their disrespect for our anthem, our flag, and the many courageous soldiers who have died for their freedoms.

On Oct. 8, Jones told reporters that he would reprimand any Cowboys player who kneeled during the anthem. "He's fired! He's fired!'"

Kobe Steel scandal hurts Japan's reputation
According to Japan Times , Kobe Steel said data was falsified to make the metal look as if it met quality standards. The products account for 4% of shipments of aluminium and copper parts as well as castings and forgings.

It's his latest missive against the league, roiled by the protests against police brutality and the president's attacks on those protests, in which players sit or kneel during the playing of the anthem.
