NFL Dolphins players kneel after fresh Trump call

NFL Dolphins players kneel after fresh Trump call

Trump then attempted to threaten a boycott if players did not stand during the national anthem.

He also seemed to refuse to buy himself as a decoy, with no desire to even look like any sort of active participant, during a wildcat play against the Saints, in true Cutler fashion.

The move drew criticism from Trump and fans, with accusations that the protesting players were disrespecting the national anthem and the United States military. Respect our Flag and our Country! Other Twitter users posted that the video Trump put up was almost a year old. On Monday night, before "America's Team" competed against the Arizona Cardinals, the players and their owner, Jerry Jones, displayed their own version of unity by kneeling on the field before rising as a group prior to the playing of the national anthem.

After a Week 3 game in which his team was shut out until the final play, Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said he was fed up with a "garbage offense".

"It's a credit to our leadership on the team, and we just felt like they were going to meet and spend some time on it and come up with a plan and we were going to be really unified and I thought it went really well. I am frustrated", Ajayi said. He has previously called for National Football League owners to fire players who take part.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the protest in 2016 following the deaths of several African-American men during confrontations with police.

Last week, more than 250 players took a knee before the anthem, with the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks choosing to remain in the locker room during the anthem.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross supported his players who chose to kneel past year and said this week he will continue to do so this season.
