Former NY Jet: Teams Should Stay In Locker Room During Pregame If They Can't Honor Flag
New York City Comptroller candidate Rev. Michel Faulkner (R) offered a solution to the epidemic of national anthem kneeling at NFL games.
Faulkner, a former New York Jets lineman, said those NFL players who knelt during the "Star-Spangled Banner" "don't know how to express their anger" about social issues.
He said that the presentation of colors during games is not the proper setting for them to "express their political angst and their opposition to what is going on outside in the inner cities."
Tucker Carlson mentioned how Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin organized his team to remain in the locker room during the anthem so they could remain "unified" as a group.
Faulkner said that phenomenon should become the rule if a team cannot guarantee that every player will remain at attention for the anthem.
"[They should be] restricted from the field unless they plan to honor the flag," he said.
