Days after it was exposed that Houston Texans owner Bob McNair stated NFL owners can’ t “ have the prisoners running the jail , ” his gamers revealed him precisely how they feel about being referenced as wrongdoers prior to their video game Sunday.
Even though McNair sent 2 declarations of apology, a few of his gamers apparently needed to be talked out of boycotting practice on Friday. Piuttosto, the large bulk of the group took a knee throughout the anthem prior to its video game vs. the Seattle Seahawks.
Texans gamers are on the sideline preparing yourself for the nationwide anthem. I anticipate some to kneel. That would be the very first time.

“ Some ” was an understatement.

Counted perhaps 10 Texans who represented the anthem. Whole sideline was primarily kneeling. Numerous Seahawks sat also, like typical this year
