Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Issues Statement After Joining Team Protest


As the ACLU of NY put it ahead of Sunday's scheduled games, "If peaceful protests did nothing, the powerful wouldn't try so hard to silence them".

Protests during the anthem have remained a divisive issue, with some claiming the act is disrespectful to the flag and military.

Things escalated quickly from some bullshit comments the president made recently, this time it has to do with sports.

Other coaches and players locked arms during the anthem.

The Jaguars took a 10-0 lead off the Lewis score.

The protest came hours after Trump against tweeted that National Football League owners should "fire or suspend" players that "disrespect" the "flag & country".

Lloyd scored one touchdown in 2010 while playing for the Denver Broncos, and two in 2012 while with the New England Patriots. He's fired, ' " Trump said to loud applause Friday night at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, comments he kept echoing over the next two days.

Federal Election Commission (FEC) forms released after Trump's inauguration in April show Khan donated $1 million to Trump's inaugural committee.

Trump's claims have been widely criticized, with National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell saying in a statement Saturday that "divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect".

Another who is opposed tweeted an image of a USA military service member kneeling at a grave.

Bortles also left the game early, replaced by Chad Henne on the Jaguars' first drive of the fourth quarter after completing 20 of 31 passes for 244 yards.

This is the Ravens first game outside of the United States. "He should know better than anyone that to fire someone due to their opinion is not right".

Dinesh D'Souza, a conservative political pundit, called for fellow opposers to boo the teams and players that refuse to stand during the anthem. "There is no better example than the fantastic response from our clubs and players to the bad natural disasters we've experienced over the last month", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The issue grew when Trump withdrew an invitation to the White House for the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors, specifically pointing to star Steph Curry.

Curry told a news conference in Oakland, California: "It's beneath the leader of a country to go that route". The secondary completely blanketed the Ravens' skill players and the Jacksonville linebackers were running sideline to sideline to keep all the short passes ahead of them.
