NFL players have continued to kneel while others raised their fists in protest during the national anthem for a second straight week as they defied a fresh demand from President Donald Trump to stand.
See Video Below.
The first in mass protest occurred late afternoon when roughly half of the San Francisco 49ers knelt during the anthem while other players stood directly behind them. All players and coaches had their right hand over their chest.
Three members of the Miami Dolphins team – Julius Thomas, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills – were the first to take a knee during the anthem ahead of their team’s game against the New Orleans Saints at Wembley Stadium in London.
