NFL reporters tweet 'I stand with those who kneel,' support protests

Sunday September 25th, 2016

Numerous members of the NFL media made a show of support Sunday for players who have been kneeling during the national anthem. In unison at 1 P.M. ET, they tweeted: "I stand with those who kneel."

The act of kneeling, which 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began in the preseason, has become a widespread practice throughout the league for players protesting racial inequality and police brutality in America. Among those who tweeted their support for the kneeling players include The MMQB’s Peter King, The Nation’s Dave Zirin and ESPN’s Jim Trotter. 

It's only a matter of time until Denny's ruins this with a brand tweet.
