Nothing to See Here?: Raiders Staff Cover Marshawn Lynch As He Sits During the National Anthem

Television networks have gone to great lengths to conceal the ratings-killing anthem protests that are costing the league huge money in terms of viewership and attendance. However, it looks like NFL teams have also started trying to conceal the anthem protests. In one case, by literally covering a player up.

The Raiders’ Marshawn Lynch arrived at the stadium, like a man wanting to be made the center of attention. Lynch showed up wearing a shirt that read, “Everybody vs Trump”:

However, when it came time for Lynch to do what he’s been doing since the preseason, which is protest the national anthem, the Raiders decided to turn Lynch into an NFL version of “Where is Waldo?” Lynch will be the guy on the left, the one literally swarmed by team staff:

So what gives? It’s probably too much to think the Raiders are ashamed of Lynch and his protest, though they should be. After all, he’s been protesting the anthem since the preseason and they’ve never done anything like this before. Did the team fear for his safety? Had someone made a credible threat against him?

The whole situation is very strange, and we’re not likely to have a full understanding until more information comes available. However, the irony of a guy wearing a shirt that claims the world is against President Trump, and then, getting the “Waldo” treatment in the corner, is quite rich.

    He looks a little uncomfortable squatting! He’d look a whole lot better standing tall before the flag!

    Well, by wearing his “Everybody vs Trump” shirt, there’s no way I’d even begin to think that he was scared for his life. So that’s out.

    I hope this goes viral so everyone can see what a POS Marshawn Lynch is!!

    But I do give Lynch credit for ONE thing: he has proven to me that just because they might stand during the National Anthem, NONE of them really mean it. Including the ‘behind the scene’ staff and the OWNER of this disgraceful ball club!

    Oh…and linking arms during our National Anthem gives the SAME MESSAGE AS KNEELING. You can’t use BOTH actions while protesting and then use ONE of them when forced to stand. The meaning behind the action remains clear: DISRESPECT FOR OUR COUNTRY, OUR MILITARY, OUR VETERANS and ALL THOSE WHO HAVE DIED SO THIS COUNTRY COULD REMAIN FREE, GIVING YOU NFL PEOPLE THE FREEDOM TO ACT LIKE ENTITLED A$$HOLES.

    I’m DONE with these childish games the NFL continues to play while on OUR time and dime!
