These NFL Players Protested the National Anthem Over Veterans Day Weekend


On the 49ers’ side, safety Eric Reid and receiver Marquise Goodwin protested the National Anthem.


“We’re sending the National Football League, its corporate sponsors, and the television networks a message this Veterans Day weekend!” said 2ndVote.


“Americans are sick of the disrespectful National Anthem protests that the NFL has not only allowed to continue, but has institutionalized in pregame ceremonies.”


“Remember, several of the companies that do business with the NFL like DirecTV and Anheuser-Busch have signaled just how bad of a PR disaster the protests have been,” 2ndVote, which launched the hashtag #STANDwithVets, added.


Aside from the few protests that took place Sunday, the majority of Nfl Players paid tribute to veterans Sunday, including bringing vets, members of the military and their families on the field for pregame festivities.
