Saints Plan to Kneel Before National Anthem, Stand During It On Sunday
It appears that the New Orleans Saints have settled on a plan for how to handle the national anthem on Sunday for their game in London against the Miami Dolphins.
Drew Brees announced on Twitter that the entire team will kneel before the anthem and then stand during it.
As we all know, 10 players sat during the anthem last week before the Carolina Panthers game as they joined a growing number of players around the NFL who protested after President Donald Trump chastised players who sat during the song.
Brees along with players Mark Ingram, Cameron Jordan and coach Sean Payton all expressed their desire to find a way to show unity as a team while displaying a protest in some form with regards to racial inequality in the U.S.
The Saints play at Wembley Stadium in London at 8:30am on Sunday. You can hear all the action here on 97.3 The Dawg, including the pregame, which starts at 6:30am.
