NFL, NFLPA release joint statement on national anthem policy

Dick Durbin meets With NFL Commissioner Goodell On Bounties In Pro Sports

A native of Jackson, Miss.

Matthews, a sixth-year pro out of Nevada, deleted his tweet response to Parker, but not before the news producer saved it for the whole world to see.

Since President Trump's September 23 criticism of NFL players' national anthem protests, Matthews has vowed to continue kneeling until the President apologizes.

He responded with a tweet: "No I will be done playing football".

Trump, via Twitter, inaccurately posted that Goodell's memo ordered the players to stand for the national anthem, which the league quickly rebuked. This was the first Sunday after Trump made his comments. "The players jointly decided this was the best course of action". The memo was not announcing a policy change, it was simply Goodell's stance on the controversy: "As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week". In the three games since, the Titans collectively stayed in the locker room once, and Matthews stayed in the locker room until after the national anthem twice.

Tight end Delanie Walker said he received death threats after the Seahawks game after stating that fans who felt disrespected by athletes using their platform to protest don't have to come to games. This is a movement that started as a protest against the prejudice and oppression many minorities in America face - especially as it relates to police brutality. They tried to have a silent protest, and look what happened. "You have that right, that freedom of speech, and you're not allowing that to happen".
