The Green Bay Packers host the New Orleans Saints in Week Seven this afternoon in Lambeau Field. But, while the game is hours away, there is an interesting banner flying over the stadium.
It’s an anti-protest banner, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. He says it says, “Real men and NFL owners should stand for our country.”
The NFL has been dealing with a national anthem problem dating back to last season when then former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the issue by kneeling for the anthem. He said it wasn’t about the flag, but about injustice in the country.
It’s become a hot issue once again, as President Donald Trump has called out the players for kneeling. He said they shouldn’t kneel during the anthem, because of the lack of respect for our flag.
He said that they should be fired for kneeling. After that, a lot more players have decided to knee, or even sit, during the anthem.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has come out and supports the President’s decision.
Since the banner is flying so early around the stadium, it’s no clear if any players saw it. Even if they did see the banner, it would honestly be able winning the game and preparing to do that than being distracted by the banner.
