|Even when the NFL isn’t bringing attention to the anthem issue Patrick Kerney Jersey , the President will continue to talk about it.
That’s what he did on Friday morning. Asked by FOX News Channel whether any players have accepted the President’s offer to consider whether any people who have been treated unfairly by the justice system should be pardoned or have their sentences commuted, the President gave an answer — and more.
“No, I haven鈥檛 heard,” he said, via Kyle Griffin of MSNBC. “You know, they鈥檙e all saying, 鈥極h, it has nothing to do with the flag Danny Shelton Jersey , it鈥檚 the way we鈥檝e been treated.’ In the meantime, they鈥檙e making $15 million a year.”
It’s a brilliant sleight of hand, because part of what he said is accurate. The players definitely are saying, “It has nothing to do with the flag.” But the players definitely aren’t saying, “It’s the way we’ve been treated.”
The players inclined to protest during the anthem are promoting a cause far bigger than themselves. They are concerned about the manner in which American citizens making far, far less than $15 million per year (then again, most NFL players are making far, far less than $15 million per year) are treated by police officers and by the justice system.
The President downplays the concerns by pretending that the concerns relate only to multi-multi-millionaires. That’s just not the case Bryan Bulaga Jersey , and no fair-minded person can reasonably see it that way.
“Look, I鈥檓 all for the athletes,” the President added. “I think it鈥檚 great. I love athletics, I love sports. But they shouldn鈥檛 get the politics involved.”
The players didn’t get politics involved. The NFL got the flag involved by forcing the players to leave the locker room for the anthem, and the NFL then got politics involved by giving players the right to protest during the anthem.
Then, politics got involved in football when the President said he’d like to see an NFL owner respond to a protesting player by saying, “Get that son of a bitch off the field. He’s fired!”
The President closed with a reiteration of a broad statement that applies not only to the players but to everyone else in the venue.
“When you鈥檙e in a stadium and they broadcast that national anthem, you鈥檝e got to stand Bart Starr Jersey ,” the President said. “And you鈥檝e got to be proud and you鈥檝e got to have your hand up and you鈥檝e got to do everything that鈥檚 right.”
We’ll see if the people who are quick to denigrate those who choose to protest are willing and able to adhere to the same standard, and we’ll see whether the President suggests that those folks maybe should live in a different country, instead of the country that ostensibly gives all citizens the freedom not to stand during the anthem.
The Detroit Lions added depth in the backfield, signing LeGarrette Blount and re-signing Zach Zenner. Detroit signed both players Friday to compete with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick for carries this year.
Blount, an unrestricted free agent, ran for a team-high 766 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season last year in Philadelphia and scored three touchdowns during the Eagles' Super Bowl-winning run. He previously played for the New England Patriots, who used to employ Detroit general manager Bob Quin and coach Matt Patricia.
Blount, who has also played for Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh Malik McDowell Jersey , has run for 5,888 yards and 51 touchdowns in his career along with catching 54 passes for 387 yards and two scores.
Zenner, who was a restricted free agent this offseason, played in eight games last season and ran for 26 yards and a TD. Over his three-year career with the Lions, Zenner has 119 carries for 420 yards and five touchdowns along with 20 receptions for 207 yards.
