Dolphins Players Protested - Now the Police Union Is Speaking

Police officers in South Florida are being urged by their unions not to buy Dolphins tickets, or ask for refunds if they've already purchased tickets, as a result of Dolphins players kneeling during the national anthem before the preseason opener.

"The Broward County PBA recently offered our members discounts to a Miami Dolphins game because that franchise said they were going to honor all First Responders".

In May, the NFL took a hard stance against players who protest inequality during the national anthem.

Jordan, who was one of a number of Saints players who protested during the anthem in one game in Carolina last season after the president called out players who sat by using a vulgarity at a rally in Alabama, took to Twitter Friday to call out Trump.

The Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association issued a Facebook statement on tickets.

Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn also raised his fist during the anthem. "Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that majority are unable to define", he said in one tweet.

The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem.

"It's a peaceful protest", Wilson said after Thursday's game. Find another way to protest.

Despite the league's efforts to have a cooling-off period while it seeks a solution to the ongoing demonstrations with the NFL Players Association, it appears that things are already starting to escalate. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem.

Of course, Trump actually can't suspend National Football League players without pay because he's the President of the United States of America, and not a dictator who can force his policies onto private corporations, as much as he'd probably like to be the latter. "Stay strong brothers!" the tweet read.
