The NFL would prefer the players now-ubiquitous protests take a back seat to the action this season, but it looks like the league wont get its wish.
If anything, the players seem ready to take their social critique beyond sitting during the national anthem.
Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who is among the ranks of NFL players to sit during the anthem, celebrated a sack Sunday afternoon with a single raised fist.
Bennett was the first Seattle player announced during pregame introductions before the home opener against the 49ers and ****received one of the loudest ovations.**** (NFL fans are becoming pretty much anti-American)
Then he took whats become his usual seat on the bench during the national anthem.
Protesters supporting Bennett, who says he was subjected to racial profiling and excessive force when Las Vegas police detained him last month, gathered outside the stadium.

As usual they are turning Rhodesia into Zimbabwe and then starving to death.
They were too cheap to buy a ticket....................
They are accelerating the pace and may pass the Boy Scouts. What are the Left going to destroy next; apple pie?
NFL players protest by sitting down or taking a knee durning the Nation Anthem. NFL viewers protest by tuning out of the games. Its like playing chicken with a train.
,,,,,,,loudest ovations ,,,,,, perhaps there was some descent and disapproval in all that noise .
Let them get real jobs.
Players? Plural? I only see reference to one of these overpaid, ignorant POS scum... who are the othe player(S) (plural), Anthony?
Why is anyone still watching the NFL?
Is this what our brave military men and women risk their lives to defend?
Boycott the NFL!!
Disgusting. Pull the plug. Let them deliver mail
Or wash cars. Whatever, they will quickly squander their money the moment their NFL playing days come to an end.
Maybe they can get a protesting “job” working for one of George Soros’ anti-American groups.
If the NFL would change over to battlebots, no one would care. The NFL SCAB Season proved that years ago. We only care about team names and logos. Make the switch now, before it’s too late!
Bennett and players union paid them to be there.
So brave of them, until the lower tv ratings and empty stadiums result in them taking a pay hit. Then, let’s see their bravery on display.
The NFL is killing itself.
Like I care.
...and the American people stop watching the NFL.
13% of the population but cause an overwhelming percentage of our nation’s problems. This poor POS victim is making millions but all he can see is victimhood.
I wish his sorry ass ancestors hadn’t sold his sorry ass ancestors to be slaves.
The spineless owners of these players ought to fire them. We do not want to see these cry bullies acting out their Fake Oppression on the football field or on the stage at the Emmys. Those of us whose incomes for the year are half of what they get per week are sick of it.
