Falcons and Seahawks Players Took a Knee After the Opening Kickoff

SJ - September 13, 2020

Falcons and Seahawks players weren't limiting their protests to the National Anthem.  After the opening kickoff to their season every player from both teams took a knee.

It was obviously a display of unity by players from both teams.  As we know displays of unity aren't always well received.

Kneeling during the National Anthem has certainly sparked a ton of conversations about whether or not it's disrespectful to the flag and the troops.

I'm sure there's somebody out there who will find something wrong kneeling during the opening kickoff.

Maybe it's disrespectful to the kicking tee and all of the kick returners from the past.  Who knows?  What I do know is people love finding things they don't like.
