Two Dolphins Players Knelt During the National Anthem — Kaepernick Already Commended Their Decisions

It’s the season opener, so, of course, there were a few NFL players on their knees for the national anthem.

Miami Dolphins’ players Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson both decided to take a knee during the national anthem of the first Sunday football game of the regular season.

Colin Kaepernick, the original NFL kneeler, took to Twitter to commend the players for their “resistance.”

Many people were frustrated with the players’ decisions to protest during the national anthem.

Their decision to kneel came just as reports were breaking from ESPN that the NFL officially caved and will not implement a national anthem policy during the 2018 season.

The league had considered implementing a penalty for kneeling during the anthem, but the players’ union fought the policy, and apparently, they won.

President Trump already took a swipe at the NFL, poking fun at their low Thursday night ratings.

It’s not clear, yet, if ratings will be down for the full weekend as Sunday is typically the league’s biggest day.

Kaepernick’s complements to the two Dolphins’ players come a week after Nike announced him as the face of their “Just Do It” campaign.

Since Nike’s announcement, they have faced a mountain of backlash, including a shoutout from the president.

 

 

It remains to be seen how this backlash will impact both Nike and the NFL in the long run.
