4 Dolphins Kneel For National Anthem, Seahawks Lock Arms

SEATTLE (CBSMiami) — Four members of the Miami Dolphins chose to kneel during the national anthem at Sunday’s game in Seattle, while the Seahawks stood together in unity.

Newly acquired running back Arian Foster, wide receiver Kenny Stills, linebacker Jelani Jenkins and safety Michael Thomas all took a knee as a member of the U.S. armed forces sang the Star Spangled Banner.

The protest comes as San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s initial protest continues to reverberate around the league.

In a show of unity, the Seattle Seahawks locked arms together, including their head coach Pete Carroll, during the anthem.

In Kansas City, cornerback Marcus Peters raised a black-gloved fist before the opening game between the Chiefs and San Diego Chargers. And on Thursday, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, a college teammate of Kaepernick’s at Nevada, also took a knee.

    Turned game off, will turn back on when they respect the flag

    1. I respect their right to dissent, one of the important rights that flag is supposed to stand for!

  2. Joe Schumacker says:

    Having the right to do something does not mean it is the right thing to do. Karma came quickly to Stills.

  3. Stewart says:

    There’s NEVER any reason to disrespect your flag. They are there, making millions and they do this, on September 11 of all days?

    Lost all respect for the Miami Franchise. Glad I didn’t renew season tickets. Ross such bench those four losers

  5. Stewart says:

    Ross made a statement approving this behavior. The players had informed him of their actions before the game. Shame on you, Mr. Ross
