There was a smattering of boos when players from FC Dallas and Nashville SC collectively took a knee during the national anthem before their MLS game on Wednesday night in Frisco, Texas.
Dallas defender Reggie Cannon said he was disgusted by the boos at Toyota Stadium when players and officials knelt to call attention to racial injustice. He said teammate Ryan Hollingshead turned to him afterward and said he was sorry.
You can't even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It's baffling to me, Cannon said. "As a team we try to give the best possible product on the field and these last six months have been absolute hell for us. Absolute hell."

Reggie Cannon is a bigot who kneels in protest of something that is untrue.
Boo the idiot bigot.
Better yet, don't be there to boo the pathetic, un-American losers.
You poor baby. The pain - it must almost be beyond your endurance. Try talking to someone who hasn't worked in five months, doesn't qualify for benefits, has exhausted his savings, is literally living day to day, and just wants to watch some morons play sports for a little diversion.
I know people who could acquaint you with absolute hell asshole.
people booing are jerks. why they are still going to see these POSs
Boos should only be the beginning. Why not a boycott? No patriotic and loyal American should be patronizing the team with attendance or support that in any way approves or facilitates their treasonous behavior.
Why would anybody in their right mind pay to see this mess?
Many soccer fans are foreign born and have personal experience with marxists. They have little patience with idiots.
Now any thinking person's first reaction to a professional athlete is along the lines, you suck, hate America, support marxists and fascists.
Soccer is just dumb anyhow plus its all liberal supported, if they getting booed there -hahaha Anti-America losers, get use to it.
Next come the throwing of things at these scumbags.
Before the end of the year more then half the country will hate these people. I'm sure thats' what they expected and why they play the game.
Giver credit to Cannon for one thing: Publicly prostrating himself in submission to the racist, marxist BLM cult, Cannon at least had the shred of decency to shield his identity behind a face diaper.
Can’t wait to boo the handful of idiot NHL kneelers (mostly Canadian born and a Sweede... mercilessly next year.)
They should have gotten out of their seats, walked over to the box office and demanded their money back!!
“a smattering of boos . . . “
Too bad it wasn’t a huge ROAR of boos from the stands.
Hey fans! Next time bring eggs!
No, boo. They need to hear it.
If NBA, and MLB had fans in the stands they would hear it too.
Also, this is Frisco, Texas at a soccer game. It is a affluent Dallas suburb and most fans are 14 year old white kids and their families.
And you DO understand what what chanting USA means? You DO understand why they're chanting? You CAN see the reason ... and you just KNOW it's a bad one?"
This is a textbook example of the narcissism of self-righteousness. When you are supremely self-righteous, you think that everyone should correctly understand your thoughts and actions, you think anything that other people do is aimed at you, and you don't need to try to understand them because you already know.
Also note how he states three times that the person chanting is ignorant ("they "don't understand", "don't understand, "can't see") and then goes on to say "They think we're the ignorant ones."
This is pure satire.
Cannon, You can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It’s baffling to me, ... they (fans) think we are the dumb ones. LOL !!
No one likes us
No one likes us
We don’t care!
Got what they wanted. Media coverage.
Important for a sport not many follow in this country. Too bad they are on the wrong side of the issue like the rest of the leagues.
I enjoy all sports including soccer. That being said its to bad they inject their politics into it.
