President Trump Says He’s Not Going To Be Watching The NFL Next Season After Several Players Confirm They Will Kneel During Anthem

Years after Colin Kaepernick was shunned for silently protesting police brutality on the field, the NFL could see a season where kneeling during the anthem is viewed as the new normal.

During an exchange on Instagram, Cleveland Browns star quarterback Baker Mayfield replied to a troll and insisted that he was “absolutely” going to kneel during the anthem next season.

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, also fired back at a Twitter user on Saturday who predicted that Watt won’t be taking a knee during the anthem.

Watt and Mayfield’s comments come just one day after Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said he would kneel with players during the anthem next season.

“Yeah, I’ll take a knee. I’m all for it,” “The players have a right to protest, a right to be heard and a right to be who they are. They’re not taking a knee because they’re against our flag. They’re taking a knee because they haven’t been treated equally in this country for over 400 years.”

President Trump doesn’t seem happy about the current development in the NFL and says he won’t be watching football next season.
