Denver Broncos Announce End of Anthem Demonstrations And It Will Make Americans PROUD

The Denver Broncos have had enough with the national anthem protests and want to take the politics out of football.

The NFL Broncos announced that they will, together as a team, stand on Sunday for the national anthem, instead of dismantling the flag and our historical icon that brings us together as a nation.

They believe in showing respect together, and understand how the anthem brings great honor the country and its veterans deserve.

The 52-players on the team were extremely passionate about their thoughts and created a joint statement about their actions last week.

Explaining that their actions were  “in no way a protest of the military, the flag or those who keep us safe.”

The statement from the NFL players came a few days after Broncos executive John Elway – who led the team to a Superbowl victory as its quarterback in 1997 – said he believes in standing for the anthem.

“Take the politics out of football,” Elway said.

The statement created by the team also had some explanation about their demonstrations from the previous week:

“Last week, members of our team joined their brothers around the NFL in a powerful display of unity. As controversial as it appeared, we needed to show our collective strength and resolve,” the Broncos said.

Reported by insiderfoxnews:

The team said its locker room is very diverse, but that being members of the same squad unite them as a team.

“No matter how divisive some comments and issues can be, nothing should get in the way of that,” the team said, appearing to reference President Trump's comments in Alabama last week.

Outside linebacker Von Miller, who helped lead the team's demonstrations last week, said after that game that Trump “assaulted” their freedom of speech, and that “we had to do something.”

For Anyone Who Argued Colin Kaepernick’s Protest Was NOT Against the Flag and Country, See His Latest Statement

Are you sure about that Mr. Kaepernick?

I know there are more than a few people and fans out there who will argue otherwise.

His reply to his initial protest display was that he knelt in response to the “systemic oppression against people of color [and] police brutality.”

President Trump’s response on the other hand is on a whole other ball field…

Former NFL player, Colin Kaepernick is sticking strong to his beliefs that he is not bashing the flag by kneeling. He honestly didn’t even get much media attention when it first happened he confirmed himself during an interview with the

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”


“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Kaepernick bluntly stated, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag” in August 2016, after he knelt during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

According to IJR:

Kaepernick's kneeling has sparked a national divide amongst fans all around the US.

Even getting President Trump involved when he stated team owners should fire those “sons of b*****s” who kneel.

The president also commented on a Monday night football game in which players knelt before the national anthem. When the Dallas Cowboys knelt before the national anthem, Trump said, they provoked “great anger” and the “loudest” booing he's “ever heard”:

“I think that it's always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem, and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
