While their TV ratings continue to sink, the NFL supports its players kneeling during the anthem. Well, LeSean McCoy is trying to start a new trend during the anthem. He’s not kneeling, but this might be even worse.
Will the NFL support this move by McCoy?
Check it out.

McCoy didn’t even acknowledge the anthem was being played. He continued to stretch and warm-up during the anthem.

The increased protesting in the NFL this weekend is certainly related to President Trump’s mention of the kneeling during the anthem. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of b*tch off the field right now! Out! He’s fired! He’s fired!”
The crowd went nuts.
