National Football League player responds to Trump's tweet

NFL player responds to Trump's tweet: 'What a goober'

Police in Florida are reportedly being discouraged by their unions from buying Miami Dolphins tickets after two Dolphins players knelt during the national anthem Thursday in their preseason opener.

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.

In May, the NFL took a hard stance against players who protest inequality during the national anthem.

NFL players continued to protest during "The Star-Spangled Banner" on Thursday night as the league began the first full week of its 2018 preseason.

The Palm Beach County PBA released a similar statement, asking its members to also request ticket refunds. If members already did so, the association suggested they call the Dolphins for a ticket refund.


The Palm Beach Country Police Benevolent Association posted the same message on its Facebook page.

"It just happened that way", Stills said after the game, via the New York Times, adding that he had the support of coach Adam Gase. "Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that majority are unable to define". "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he said.

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.

The anthem controversy has been rumbling since 2016 when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the anthem to draw attention to racial and social injustices.

The NFL now has its anthem policy on hold as it tries to come to a compromise with the NFLPA on the issues. Dolphins receivers Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills protested the national anthem by kneeling.
