Houston Texans Players Kneel During Anthem In Response To Bob McNair's 'Inmates' Comment
30 October, 2017, 02:07
In a public apology after meeting on Saturday with the players, McNair, 79, a billionaire who like many National Football League owners contributed to Trump's presidential campaign, insisted that his "inmates" metaphor had been misinterpreted.
Not exactly. Several players took a knee during the national anthem before taking on the Seahawks in Seattle.
The Seahawks QB threw for a team-record 452 yards, but the Seahawks' defense gets a C-minus after giving up too many big plays in a 41-38 win over the Texans. There were reports that something would be done by players on the team before Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
He's also caught just 10 touchdown passes in 33 games with the Seahawks after catching 46 in 63 games with the Saints in the four seasons he spent as a starter prior to being traded.
Owners did not vote to change a policy that would require players to stand for the anthem during that meeting.
The players were widely reported to have been planning an en masse demonstration against McNair over his choice of words.
McNair did not meet with the players on Friday after the comment but instead waited until Saturday morning to apologize personally - which reportedly bothered some of the team's players. "As I said [Friday], I was not referring to our players when I made a very regretful comment during the owners meeting last week", the statement read.
