Skip to comments.Seahawks Doug Baldwin wonders why sitting for anthem is bad when fans curse, yell and wear hats

During a Tuesday press conference, Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin was of course asked about his teammate, Michael Bennett, and Bennetts decision to sit during the national anthem.
...I look in the stands at some of our games, both home and away, and I see people that are drunk with their hats still on, yelling. How come you guys arent talking to them? How come theres not a discussion about them?

How much are the drunks being paid?
Well, he IS right about this. Nobody who stands with his hat one and swigs a beer while the national anthem is playing has any credibility to complain about the NFL players who are sitting or kneeling.
Were they doing it during the National Anthem?
Oh, so in other words, Doug . . .BOTH SIDES ARE TO BLAME?
Is that it?
“YEAH, BUT WHAT ABOUT THEM?!”
Clean up your own crap and then you can discuss the transgressions of others.

That’s it right there.
It’s a free country.
Free for people to sit during the National Antham...
... and free for people who object to the jerks sitting to boycott games and advertisers.
If liberals had their way it would only be ‘free’ for them... in short a liberal elite totalitarian hell State...
Another virtue signalling over paid snowflake. Americans have ALWAYS cursed yelled and worn hats, f’tard.
The answer is so very simple......you Doug Baldwin,Michael Bennett, and other’s are leader of lots and lots of young people....your a Hero to them and expected to set a good example....
Yep, he just insulted the Seahawks “12th” players. Doesn’t this dufus know he is a sports celebrity as opposed to being one of the many?
But I can see that you wish to be unemployed so keep it up twinkle toes and you will get your wish soon enough.
You can only control your own actions and reactions. The behavior of the crowd should not influence your decision to stand and be respectful during the National Anthem.
The “two wrongs make a right” school of thought. Wow.
BECAUSE YOU’RE THERE TO PLAY FOOTBALL, not make political commentary.
DO THAT OFF THE FIELD ALL YOU WANT! I will support your right to say anything.
But your FIRST job is to attract and keep an audience. Pissing-off half of them is not going to help.
He made a fictional point.
How would he know that the ungrateful and ignorant slobs in the stands who are disrespectful during the playing of our National Anthem are the ones that condemn bennett? This is not a likely case, at all, and everyone (everyone) knows it.
They need to cut Bennett as they slim down their roster. Raiders need to do the same with their Seahawk Castoff.
Seattle. What else would you expect?
I am already planning the projects I need to do around the house when the weather gets cooler. Won’t be wasting time watching football; should get a lot of work done.
