Eagles, 'Fins players protest during anthem

AP061105053906

The Philadelphia Daily News reported that Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett walked out of the tunnel during the playing of the anthem and headed to the team bench. As the song began, the players took a knee.

Philadelphia Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins and De'Vante Bausby raised a fist, as did San Francisco 49ers' Marquise Goodwin and Miami Dolphins' Robert Quinn, while his team-mates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled.

Team owner Stephen Ross has said he would like his players to stand for the anthem, and the NFL recently suspended its rule regarding anthem protests until the league and players union can come to terms on a policy.

A dozen games were played Thursday night but it was not immediately clear how many saw signs of protest.

The actions to protest social injustices were the first of the preseason in the NFL.

"The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem".




The NFL modified its national anthem protocol in May, prohibiting any sort of demonstrations for the 2018 season, but allowing players to remain in the locker room during the anthem if they chose to.

The NFL introduced a new national anthem policy this season. The growing popularity of the peaceful protest particularly angered President Donald Trump, who said the act was unpatriotic and called for participating players to be fired.

The league and the NFLPA have just over a month to form a new policy before the start of the regular season.

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans".

National anthem protests returned to the NFL Thursday, as two Miami Dolphins players took a knee and one of their teammates raised a fist during "The Star Spangled Banner" ahead of the team's preseason opener.
