So apparently the Seattle Seahawks are strongly considering sitting through the National Anthem, during the season opener.
Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, who said he plans to continue to sit during the national anthem this season, may not be doing so by himself when the team opens the regular season Sunday against Miami.Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin said Wednesday he is also considering sitting during the anthem before Sunday’s 1:05 p.m. kickoff at CenturyLink Field while linebacker Bobby Wagner said the team has been talking about a group action.“I have (considered it),” Baldwin said before Seattle’s practice Wednesday afternoon. “I want to make sure I get all of my ducks in a row before I do so.’’
He isn't sure if this going to cost him an endorsement or not.
Cue the sad millionaire music.
While Wagner said he didn’t know if he would sit down during the anthem he said “anything we want to do, it’s not going to be individual. It’s going to be a team thing.
Because I don't want to take the heat for this all by myself.
That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”
Wagner said he couldn’t say exactly what the team might do, saying “whatever we decide to do will be a big surprise.”
No it won't. These guys are not creative types.
Baldwin, asked if players besides himself have considered joining Lane, said “our locker room has discussed it. So we’ll see.”
Said Carroll of whether the 9-11 anniversary should be taken into consideration in terms of any protest: “Not specifically to that. We have a concern that this date is coming up just because we are Americans and it’s an important day. But not specifically to that.”
So these rich spoiled bitch celebrities are planning to sit through the National Anthem on 9-11.
*clap* *clap* *clap*
Wagner said that regardless of whatever actions the team, or individuals, decide to take, he thinks the conversations that have been ignited by Kaepernick’s initial decision to sit have been positive.
Because you live in fucking bubble. No one but some selected sky lined turdballs are giving you the thumbs up for this.
The rest of this article is millionaire athletes sucking their own dicks in praise of their bravery. Oh and going on and on about how some shitbird veterans started a supporting hashtag on Twitter, so they are completely validated in what they are doing.
I find myself strangely indifferent to this. It's not like I expect anything from these guys.
And honestly I do prefer College Football. The teams don't move around for a start. The fan traditions are way better than whipping D-Cell batteries at players like they do in Philly. (*Although if I was in Seattle I would set up a used battery shack outside of CenturyLink Field on Sunday. *) The atmosphere is a hell of a lot less corporate. The love of the fans is far richer.
In fact I'll prove it.
No NFL team's fans feel pain like U of M's fans did last year.
And no one enjoyed the pain of U of M fans like Michigan State's did. It's just better all around in every possible way.
