NFL Player Says He’ll Quit The NFL If Forced To Stand For The Anthem

The disrespectful protesting during the national anthem has offended a lot of people and the National Football League started losing a lot of fans.

Many team owners had to push and force the players to stand during the anthem, which was very helpful.

However, the Tennessee Titans’ leading receiver, Richard Matthews stated that he won’t accept the order given by the owners and plans to continue with his protest.

According to The Daily Caller, on Thursday, Richard posted a tweet that if he is forced to stand during the anthem, then he will quit the NFL. He wrote: “No, I will be done playing football.” However, quickly after, he deleted the tweet. Matthews was asked if he is ready to suffer punishment for not standing if a new rule is implemented.

He started protesting shortly after President Donald Trump shared his remarks toward the NFL players who choose to protest. However, the president said what had to be said, which the players deserved it. They offended many people, especially the veterans who risked their lives for the country.

His team, Tennessee Titans remained in the locker room during the anthem before their Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Matthews has remained in the locker room alone during the past two games while the rest of the team stood for the anthem.

He probably didn’t put much thought before posting the tweet. Richard would be jobless if this new rule was obtained, similar to the player who started the whole protesting, Colin Kaepernick. He is still looking for a team.

It’s one thing to share what he thinks and tells that he is angry with the new rule, but he took it over the limit. If he is ready to lose his job, then he will probably proceed with the protest.

    So instead of finding another, more POSITIVE way to make his statement besides protesting the Anthem, he chooses to lose his career and his multi-million dollar income??? If this doesn’t tell you how ignorant some of these athletes are…….

    He will never play in football again. No one will touch him. Who wants someone who don’t respect the Flag and Anthem of the Men and Women who fought and died for the rights that all of us, including them. The thing is we wouldn’t care if they protested but not during a time when the few minutes we take to salute our Men and Women that fought lost limbs, and is psychologically scarred for life.

    Really RISHARD??? From looking at your picture, you seem to be impersinating a U.S. Marine. I can’t even fathom someone sitting, kneeling, or any type of BS during the National Anthem. You are a disgrace to the Corps and this Country. Stop fricken crying. I don’t understand you Blacks, you have everything on a silver platter, but yet you cry for more. If you don’t get your way you want to march or protest. Get a fricken life. You want to do something good, help out your fellow BLACK people in the hood. Don’t forget your flack jacket, you might just get shot from the people you stand up for. LOL. Dumbasses!!!

    Bennett is lying garbage, slandering the police just like the racist Islamofascist Kaepernick, and Goodell is torpedoing the NFL by siding with these rotters. Black Lives Matter is Antifa, violent America hating trash. Their leading icons (Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, etcetera) were shot while committing attempted murder. BLM sides with attempted murderers over the people they were trying to murder purely on the basis of race. It isn’t possible to get more racist than that. Bennett and Kaepernick are EVIL

    Guess they would rather disrespect our anthem and flag…The symbols of what those things stand for, the men and women who fought for their freedom and rights etc..but as usual these men want to give “Nothing” back in terms of respect. for the individuals who laid down their own lives for them. How very narcissistic. How divisive!

    JUST LEAVING USA IS DIGNIFIED THAN PROTESTING AGAINST THE SYMBOLS OF THE SAME FREEDOM THAT ALLOWED YOU TO EARNED YOUR MILLIONS & YOUR FAME LIVING IN LUXURY, NOT GIVING BACK SOME TO OUR SOCIETY YOU DON’T DESERVE THE GOODNESS UNDER OUR FLAG & OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM.

    if your that self centered than by all means quit, at this point I don’t think any one will miss you, oh by the way all that money your making will not be going with you. Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you!

    What a little coward whining and complaining with all his fortune and good luck. A complete ungrateful narcissist who has so much while so many people are scraping to make ends meet and struggling to pay their bills everyday. All you whiners should have to live like the rest of us paupers. Black privileged people stop playing the victim card all the time. Look around at other people less fortunate than yourselves and get out and help someone.
