Lower Burrell, Jeannette veterans organizations to boycott National Football League broadcasts

That was down from 15 players the week before, according to the ESPN tally.

Although it was noticed during the early NFL games on Sunday that no players had as of then chose to take a knee during the national anthem this Veteran's Day weekend, it didn't take long for the good will to fade.

The Times reported that a "half-dozen Seattle Seahawks players who have sat during the national anthem stood up for the flag at Thursday night's game".

I've got news for Mr. Bennett. "There's been this narrative that we don't care about the military".

47ABC - Millions of people all across the nation pledged to boycott the NFL Veteran's Day weekend.

About six to eight Seahawks players had been sitting or kneeling during the anthem, but defensive end Michael Bennett (one of the leading kneelers) said the team chose to stand as a show of support for the military in honor of Veterans Day.

The president and other critics argued that the playing of the national anthem was the wrong time for protests, regardless of the reason, because the song represents US national unity and respect for those who serve in the military. It was his first game since signing with the team this week.
