NFL players on Twitter have been taking to social media to discuss the protests that began last week.
The protests, which began after President Donald Trump was elected, have been centered around the NFL, with players from the Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins taking a knee in solidarity with the protesters.
The San Francisco 49ers are one team to have taken a knee during the protests.
The Miami Dolphins are the other.
The teams’ players, coaches and executives have said they plan to remain in their seats during the anthem.
The Dallas Cowboys have also been kneeling during the national anthem since the start of the season.
The protests also have come under fire from the NFL itself.
The league said last week it would suspend players for 10 days for “immoral conduct” if they continued to kneel during the playing of the national anthems.
However, a day later, the league’s chief executive officer, Roger Goodell, said in an interview that he does not believe players should be penalized for kneeling during national anionsms.
Goodell also said he would not allow players to kneep during the first half of the anthem if the game was on.
He later told reporters, “I don’t think that’s the right thing to do, and I’m not going to go there.”
The NFL has said the protests were part of a larger political agenda.
The players say the protests are aimed at protesting racial injustice, police brutality and other issues.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last month that players should not kneel in the national athems if they feel it disrespects the anthem.
“We’re going to have to have some compromise with our players,” Goodell said.
“They’ve got to realize that this is about their jobs, their livelihoods, and they’re going in the right direction.
But we’re not going in there and saying ‘We’re not letting you do this.'”
