Rishard Matthews Would Rather Quit Than Be Forced To Stand

Rishard Matthews Would Rather Quit Than Be Forced To Stand

Matthews' response Thursday to a reporter from his verified account was captured by a screen grab.

Soon after publishing the tweet, Matthews deleted it.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he could not comment because he learned of Matthews' tweet after practice and had not talked to the player yet.

Since President Trump's September 23 criticism of NFL players' national anthem protests, Matthews has vowed to continue kneeling until the President apologizes.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell wrote in a letter published this week that players should stand during the anthem, although the anthem it is not mentioned in the National Football League rulebook.


"No, I will be done playing football", Matthews responded.

Last month, Matthews pledged to donate $75,000 to organizations that support oppressed communities.

"I'm exhausted of hearing, 'Stick to sports.' It comes down to right and wrong in this world", Rishard Matthews told ESPN in September. "If you see wrong and don't say anything, that's wrong". "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country".

"I'm exhausted of hearing, 'Stick to sports.' It comes down to right and wrong in this world", Matthews told ESPN last month. As minorities, what do you want to happen before we say anything? It should be worth noting that the players are peacefully protesting, though, and they aren't protesting the national anthem itself. Why is it anti-American to exercise the right of free speech, while many drape themselves in the flag hypocritically while trying to deny others the freedom to exercise that right?
