Kenny Stills Offers NFL Possible Way To Stop Protests During National Anthem

South Florida police officers are encouraged to boycott Dolphins games after a couple of players continued protesting during the national anthem Thursday prior to kickoff of the team's preseason opener against the Buccaneers. "Among several players who protested during Thursday's games included Malcolm Jenkins, who raised a fist during the anthem".

The Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association released a statement on its Facebook page on Friday, asking their members to not buy Dolphins tickets.

"We encourage you to call the Dolphins ticket office to request a refund because this organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day", said the union in a statement posted on Facebook.

The Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association posted the same message.

The union said it would re-evaluate its stance if the NFL amends its policy regarding players who demonstrate during the national anthem, according to the Miami Herald. Political analysts have predicted Mr. Trump would seek to keep the issue alive to energise supporters ahead of November's crucial mid-term elections, framing protesters as unpatriotic and disrespectful to the military. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he said.

The protests came months after team owners reacted to public backlash in May by issuing a policy requiring that all team personnel who decide to be on the field during the song "shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem".

The NFL now has its anthem policy on hold as it tries to come to a compromise with the NFLPA on the issues. The teams then could decide how and whether to punish offending personnel.

A week later, the National Football League said it would put the policy on hold so it could discuss a solution with the association.

Much like a dog yapping at a squirrel in a tree, President Trump couldn't resist commenting on the protests. Stills said he and Wilson didn't coordinate their decision to kneel.
