Two days after Trump called any NFL player who protests during the national anthem a “son of bitch” who should be “fired, ” Brady’s caption seemed to highlight the characteristics that make up an NFL player.
President Trump said in a series of tweets that athletes should be taken off the field for kneeling. Whether or not Rodgers is showing us that he intends to kneel during the anthem is unclear, but certainly raises some eyebrows.
Trump claimed boisterously on Election Day that he’d heard from Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady that they’d voted for him.
Trump went after Roger Goodell, too, after the commissioner released a statement of his own.
Brady posted a photo to his Instagram page of he and teammate James White with a caption that featured numerous buzzwords that the National Football League, its owners and many players have been using in response to Trump’s comments. A number of players on both sides, joined by Ravens legend Ray Lewis, knelt during the early game in London, joined by Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, who chose to link arms with his players.
