LISTEN: Nantz Caught on Hot Mic Remarking on Anthem Protests
— Deadspin (@Deadspin) October 14, 2016
Before the September 29 game between the Cincinatti Bengals and the Miami Dolphins, play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz was caught on a hot mic cynically commenting on NFL players' protests during the national anthem.
“They’re gonna keep kneeling as long as we have cameras right in their face,” Nantz said in a video posted by Deadspin.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the protests during the NFL preseason with his decision to sit - and later kneel - during the customary pre-game rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Kaepernick said he wanted to send a message regarding the treatment of African-Americans and people of color by police officers.
