Union urges police to return their Miami Dolphins tickets after anthem protest

Dolphins offensive coordinator fed up with mistakes

NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem to protest incidents of police abuse have prompted Broward County's police union to urge officers to return their discounted Miami Dolphins tickets for refunds.

Instead of calling for unity at the year anniversary of the deadly white supremacist "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year, CNN's Jake Tapper noted that Donald Trump is instead sowing division by condemning National Football League players for kneeling to protest racism. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that a lot of them are unable to define.

Trump's tweet comes after Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills and two-time Super Bowl victor Malcolm Jenkins were among the NFL players who protested during the national anthem on Thursday, as Colin Kaepernick tweeted his support. "Taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem". They make a fortune doing what they love. Find another way to protest. Earlier this year they announced a new policy that said players who knelt during the anthem could be fined by their teams. President Donald Trump and others have criticized the players, saying their protests are unpatriotic and disrespect the military.

Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson were the only players to kneel during the anthem, while teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist before facing the Buccaneers.

"We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the national anthem", the union said in a statement.

Jordan continued, adding two more tweets in which he called Trump "a Goober" who "won't govern himself".
