Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem

Oakland Raiders Looking To Take Big Step

After Colin Kaepernick's protest first went public in August 2016, Del Rio was asked his thoughts about Kaepernick's decision to sit down during the national anthem. "We'll do ours.' It's a non-issue for me". "Save those individual decisions to express yourself for an individual forum". Kaepernick's BFF also refused to stand Sunday for the national anthem.

"I want to be able to use this platform to continuously push the message ... of how unselfish you can be as a society", Bennett said after the game. "That's always been kind of an assumed thing".

Raiders tight end Jared Cook said he salutes Kaepernick, Lynch and Bennett. If there was an issue, come talk to me. And to the extent that people pay attention to that, even if they can not be bothered to see Charlottesville, VA, as the national horror it is, the message may resonate.

Eagles cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, who raised his fist during the anthem last season, said last week he'll keep protesting in order to bring awareness against police brutality.

Mr Cooley also paid tribute to the hard work the students have put in over the past months and years. But one restaurant is hoping to ease the stress for students picking up their results.

Marshawn Lynch and Michael Bennett are changing the value of exhibition football, one gesture at a time.

If he is protesting, here's one thing I would like to know: Lynch's sit-down took place a few hours after the violent ugliness in Charlottesville, Va., and after the president of the United States declined to condemn the hate groups responsible for the deadly violence. That's what we have as Americans, we have that right. "And if you're really not racist then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have". In other not-standing-for-the-national-anthem news this weekend, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett also chose not to rise for the Star Spangled Banner, indicating this culture-war controversy will remain front and center during what is obviously already a rather tense moment in USA race relations.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke with Lynch after the game and was not aware that he planned to sit. But there is some dispute on the "11 years" claim, as ProFootballTalk has unearthed 2011 footage of Lynch standing for the anthem. It's not a form of anything other than me being myself, '" coach Del Rio said, "I said, 'So you understand how I feel.
