Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says he won’t force his players to stand for the national anthem http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/au...jr.-jersey , even though he believes kneeling is a counterproductive way to promote social justice.
Ross’ comments Tuesday in a statement released by the Dolphins came after the New York Daily News reported that he said all of the team’s players will stand for the anthem in 2018. Ross was in New York on Monday to be honored by the Jackie Robinson Foundation and receive its ROBIE Lifetime Achievement Award.
”I have no intention of forcing our players to stand during the anthem, and I regret that my comments have been misconstrued,” Ross said in his statement.
”I’ve shared my opinion with all our players: I’m passionate about the cause of social justice, and I feel that kneeling is an ineffective tactic that alienates more people than it enlists.”
Colin Kaepernick started the NFL anthem movement when he was with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. President Donald Trump has criticized the movement, saying it’s disrespectful to service members.
”I know our players care about the military and law enforcement too,” Ross said in his statement, ”because I’ve seen the same players who are fighting for social justice engaging positively with law enforcement and the military. I care passionately that the message of social justice resonates far and wide Elgton Jenkins Jersey , and I will continue to support and fund efforts for those who fight for equality for all.”
Dolphins players Julius Thomas, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills knelt during the anthem before games last season. At one point coach Adam Gase established a team rule requiring players either to stand for the anthem or stay in the tunnel.
When protesting players told Gase waiting in the tunnel was interfering with their game preparation, he relaxed the rule and allowed them to resume their sideline kneeling.
Stills was the Dolphins’ nominee for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, which honors involvement in the community and performance on the field. He’s expected to be back with Miami with 2018, but Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas are less likely to return.

There's no definitive way to predict a perfect draft. All the experts and all the scouts in the world can do an outstanding job identifying talent but there will always be booms and busts. Sports are just funny that way. In the NFL, an entire weekend is dedicated to the draft. It's that big of a deal. For the young athletes, it's obviously a dream come true. For the teams selecting http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/au...ger-jersey , it becomes the building block of their organizations. The team with the first overall pick has the toughest decision of them all.A player selected number one overall is not expected to be a good player. Good players can be found in the later rounds. Those selected number one overall are expected to be great. Game changers. Perennial Pro Bowlers. Most of all, they're supposed to win games. With still no lottery in place for the NFL (seriously NFL, what's the holdup?), the team selecting first had the worst season of the league in the prior year and is in need of a desperate turnaround.Truth is, not every number one pick has lived up to the hype. Few have. Others have turned out to be good players and contributors (*cough* *cough*, Alex Smith) but clearly not worth the hype. Then there are the few that have been complete failures (please see: JaMarcus Russell). With over 250+ players drafted and a large amount that go undrafted each season, we don't have to go far to find players that Dexter Williams Jersey , looking back now, would be considered more worthy of the first overall selection than those who actually were.In this countdown, we're going to explore some "What if?" scenarios for those players that should have been selected number one overall. Some even involved in trade scenarios. Order is based on year in a descending timeline and not necessarily in order of who's most deserving.
