The heated conversation this season isn't who got traded to whom; it's about taking a knee. Ever since Colin Kaepernick took his knee last season and subsequently blacklisted, fans and players have been defending his constitutional right. Of course, there's been debate, and understandably so. But, until now that debate has been relegated to the comment sections of the Internet. That is until late last week when President Trump stated, "fire the son of a bitch."
"Sports Fans Coalition fully supports the statements of NFL Commissioner Goodell and NFLPA Executive Director Smith. Whether or not you believe kneeling in protest during the National Anthem is offensive, the fact remains, this is their constitutional right. No one's job should be at risk for exercising the rights that thousands of men and women have fought to preserve. President Trump should never have used his platform to threaten the livelihood of our players." said Brian Hess, Executive Director.
