Rishard Matthews 'done playing football' if forced to stand for national anthem

Donald Trump goes nuclear on NFL national anthem protests “Get that son of a b***h off the field”

Donald Trump goes nuclear on NFL national anthem protests “Get that son of a b***h off the field”

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews made it clear Thursday he will not stand for the national anthem nor will he allow himself to be forced to stand. Matthews was not available Thursday after practice before the locker room closed to reporters.

"No I will be done playing football", Matthews tweeted and ultimately deleted when asked if he would be willing to face punishment for not standing if a new rule is implemented.

Earlier this week NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent out a memo to the league's owners with regards to player protests during the national anthem, with some interpreting the memo as a sign that the league would put into place a rule that would require all players to stand. His half-brother, who was killed in Afghanistan, served 10 years in the Marines and his father served 21 years in the Marines.

The league and NFL Players Association issued a joint statement Wednesday in which it said the two sides will huddle during the upcoming league meetings.

The Titans remained in the locker room during the anthem before their Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks. "I fully stand with my brother Kap, and I plan to continue to do that". "If you see wrong and don't say anything, that's wrong". They tried to have a silent protest, and look what happened.
