Seahawks Players Harassed Over Anthem Protest 'Get Off Your F**king Knees'

A woman in Renton told Seahawks cornerback Neiko Thorpe that he needs to

The woman is upset that players have been kneeling during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice in America.

That the protests by some NFL players in 2017 during the national anthem - including by a handful of Seahawks - remains a sensitive topic is evident in videos posted to Twitter Sunday and Monday by Seattle cornerbacks Neiko Thorpe and Michael Tyson.

"Stand up and be a man", the woman says. "You got to get off your little f-- knees and represent the country that made you what you are".

One of the two players can be heard inquiring about the woman's name at one point, and she responded by asking the player who he was: 'I'm not telling you my f****** name.

"F-- off. I don't care who you are", the woman said. "And get off your f--g knees".

"You done yet?" one of the players asks.

Video of the incident emerged and showed Bennett being apprehended, but the footage was inconclusive. The NFL and teams get their money from season-ticket holders, other paying customers, broadcast contracts and sponsors.

Aside from the fact that this woman felt she could apparently follow these men and shout expletives at them, her "fact" that her tax dollars pay the players' salaries is wrong. Tyson was drafted by Seattle in the sixth round of the 2017 National Football League draft but has yet to play a game. In September he accused Las Vegas police of profiling him, using excessive force and threatening him with a gun - something the department investigated and has since denied.

The Seahawks symbol can be clearly seen on the building directly in front. "Production has been really no question here, but this is a team that's trying to maybe quiet things down a little bit compared to over the last couple years". "One of their core defensive players over the last several years".

So essentially they want Michael Bennett to stop talking about issues that matter most to him and just play football.
