Steve Kerr Criticizes NFL for New Anthem Policy

"I think our players have a tremendous message and they represent an extraordinary aspect and mentality in our country, and we need to listen to them and we need to hear what they have to say, we need to understand where they're coming from, and champion the fact that they're going to do the good work in whatever the circumstances allow".

And that led to Baldwin being asked about Trump's comment following the team's Organized Team Activity workout.

"We've got time to kind of brainstorm some ideas on how we could stand for justice and what we can do", Tate said.

I love the First Amendment and I encourage these players to use their platforms to influence change, raise awareness or whatever it is they are trying to do.

With its popularity threatened and critics stretching all the way to the White House, the NFL just wanted to get past the debate over taking a knee during the national anthem. It is what it is. For him to say that anyone who doesn't follow his viewpoints or his constituents' viewpoints should be kicked out of the country, it's not very empathetic, it's not very American-like, actually, to me.

"I will be standing up with my hand over my heart, showing respect to the United States of America and the flag and everything it stands for", Brees said.

But the league also gave teams the option of developing their own workplace rules, which many players interpreted as a backhanded way of subjecting them to fines - or worse - should they carry on with the protests. "I don't think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it's good".

"We're supposed to have a conversation about things, talk about things, work things through".

West added, "I want to thank (CNN) for the reporting that you've done on this issue". The new policy applies to Uber employees and drivers as well.

"There wasn't a formal vote", said Rooney, "but we went around the room and everybody spoke their piece, so it wasn't like anybody didn't have a chance to express where they stood on this". Maybe the National Football League and Commissioner Roger Goodell had a patriotic change of heart. I don't think that's right in any place in any setting. "It seems that way".

The players were always clear that this was not about patriotism but about inequality and police brutality. It's been completely fine for years for National Football League players to use their platform to sell stuff like clothing, pizza, and insurance, but as soon as one of them actually tries to do something that has real meaning it's ruining the game for you? "When you really think about it, why would we have a say-so?"

"I disagree with everyone on this table", McCain said. "We want people to stand", Goodell said. Then the owners got together in Atlanta and chose to pass a rule - without any prior discussion with the players' association - that was the equivalent to throwing a match on gasoline. "In time we will figure it out".

Carroll said it was too soon to know how the team might react but that whatever the team does it will do together.

Carroll said the Seahawks would continue to support their players in any way they can.

An online petition is calling for several of the NFL's top corporate sponsors to cut ties with the league after it banned players this week from kneeling in protest during the national anthem.

Johnson said that he prefers that players stand during the national anthem, but he will not punish players who decide to protest.
