Kenny Stills and 2 other Dolphins protest during national anthem

"Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that a lot of them are unable to define", Trump wrote on Twitter. And he's a bit off when he says "most of that money goes to the players anyway": Under the league's collective bargaining agreement, the players' share of league revenue is capped at 48.5 percent this season.

Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jennkis went so far as to hold up a series of signs outlining his message earlier this summer. "Find another way to protest", he wrote.

The statement continued: "Meanwhile, there has been no change in the NFL's policy regarding the national anthem". I thought I was going to be by myself out there, and today I had an angel with me with Albert being out there.

In another tweet, Trump also reiterated his belief that players, who don't stand for the National Anthem should be penalized.

Fans who were holding out hope that national anthem protests were firmly in the National Football League's past will no doubt be disappointed by activities during this year's preseason.

Videos showed numerous players going the way of Colin Kaepernick and kneeling, a protest the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback started in 2016.

The NFL's warmup games are in full swing - and the National Anthem protests are back.




"1.68 million formerly incarcerated citizens do not have the right to vote in the state of Florida", read a shirt worn by one Eagles player before Thursday night's game.

Writing on Twitter from his New Jersey golf resort, Trump said Friday players "make a fortune doing what they love", and those who refuse to stand "proudly" for the anthem should be suspended without pay.

"The NFL is made up of 70 per cent African Americans".

President Donald Trump has weighed in on the issue multiple times since the protests started.

"A good first step as a league would be acknowledging what they're doing to Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid", Stills said, via USAToday.com's Lindsay Jones. Yeldon, cornerback Jalen Ramsey and linebacker Telvin Smith were not on the field for the playing of the anthem before their game against the New Orleans Saints. No players protested during the anthem at last week's Hall of Fame Game between the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears in Canton, Ohio, which opened the preseason.

Now our wide, salty president is mad again this morning and tweeting about the kneeling Dolphins from what we can only assume is an orthopedic mattress at his estate in Bedminster, New Jersey.

That policy was put into place without any input from players or the players' union, so the National Football League agreed to undergo discussions with the NFLPA after the union had filed a grievance.
