Just One Player Sits During Anthem Before MNF — Karma Hits Him Hard on the Field Just Minutes Later

Less than 24 hours after the Las Vegas massacre that left at least 59 people dead, it initially appeared as if both the Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs were in complete unity during the playing of the national anthem before the “Monday Night Football” game.


Then the camera cut to the Chiefs’ bench.

Sitting alone in protest was the team’s star cornerback Marcus Peters.

Peters was the only player from either team who chose not to stand for the national anthem. He didn’t even choose to take a knee. He just remained seated.

Ironically, moments later, Peters was completely burned for a 44-yard touchdown by the Redskins.

Ouch.

NFL fans also brought their own message to the stadium.

Regardless, it seems that Peters is now in the minority among NFL players. Following President Donald Trump’s strong remarks against national anthem protests, roughly 180 NFL players refused to stand for the national anthem. This week, the number apparently dropped to 54:


That was after, of course, NFL fans made it clear they did not support “taking a knee” during the national anthem.

    Maybe Marcus Peters shouldn’t play; looks like he doesn’t even have enough energy by just sitting on the bench! 🙂

    Standing without the hand on your heart or just joining elbows doesn’t cut it. They are still protesting!
    So they want to have equality and unity so let’s give them both. What they really need isto be fired. If owners and coaches are afraid of/for their “babies and losing $$$ then to have unity and true ewquality the the $20 billion reduced to $0 for building and maintaining their stadiums, lower pay for players and lower gross for owners and the coaches. I’m one American that says “enough is enough”! BOYCOTT!

    we’ll never forget the total disregard of these players for our fellow citizens. If you are that callous then you and your cause deserve only our disdain.

    Shame about the elevated tone of debate here.

    Has the National Anthem become a stand-in for God ?

    The only reason any of these ‘kneelers’ are standing now is because they’re being FORCED to do so. They don’t want to lose their ‘golden goose’ contracts and have to get a REAL job for much less $$.

    Before, their outward displays of ‘protesting’ involved kneeling and locking arms together. Now that they’ve been forbidden to kneel, they are STILL locking arms together in an outward display to show the rest of us that they will CONTINUE to disrespect our military, our veterans, our police, and our country.

    Also, the owners and coaches could very well enforce the NFL rule that requires all players to be present on the field while our National Anthem is played, with their right hand over their hearts and their helmet in their left hands. But, NOPE, the owners and coaches STILL refuse to enforce this NFL rule.

    Sorry but fake ‘apologies’ don’t work for me.

    The numbers are dropping with the players sitting because they know they are losing revenue, not patriotism. Not going back to watching NFL because they slammed our National Anthem, which are our Military, law enforcement and first responders.

    WTF?!?!? “Kneeling & Locking Arms”? Can’t these Asshole Crybabies “STAND-UP” on THEIR OWN?
    THIS IS A TRUE SIGN OF WEAKNESS, LAZINESS & SUBMISSION! AND SOOOO ANTI-AMERICAN!

    These players really are “PRO’s”!
    (at only getting down on their knees… that is!)
