I don't really care whether the players stand or not during the anthem. But linking arms with Daniel Snyder seems incredibly disrespectful toward Redskin fans. Over the past 20 years, Snyder has almost ruined the franchise and is the person responsible for the fact that our stadium was half filled with Raider fans last night. Why normalize this a-hole?
The original message has been buried by NFL players doing what they do best...making it about themselves.
The new message is, "We're protesting because...uh, we can. In unity we're all gonna kneel, except for the ones that stand, and not come out for the anthem at all, except for those that do. It's all about unity. And one voice. And that voice says, 'Look at me. I just want to be heard. I'm not saying anything, but it needs to be said and heard anyway!' Excuse me while I take my oppressed butt to the bank and deposit my paltry six-figure paycheck."
