Florida police union rescinds ticket discounts amid NFL National Anthem protests

The Miami-Dade police union said many of its member officers declined to provide off-duty security at Dolphins games, last season, because of the protests.

The Miami Dolphins did not immediately return a request for comment. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he said. Political analysts have predicted Mr. Trump would seek to keep the issue alive to energise supporters ahead of November's crucial mid-term elections, framing protesters as unpatriotic and disrespectful to the military.

The NFL's national anthem issue isn't going away anytime soon, but Kenny Stills thinks he knows one way the league could start to mend fences with its players.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase has said he was not telling his players what to do during the anthem and the team did not have a policy regarding anthem protests before Thursday night's game.

That didn't sit well with the players, though.

The NFL now has its anthem policy on hold as it tries to come to a compromise with the NFLPA on the issues. In July, the players association filed a grievance, saying the new policy infringed upon player rights and was enacted without consulting the union.

The anthem-kneeling controversy has been raging since 2016 when Colin Kaepernick, then a quarterback with the 49ers, first refused to stand as a lone protest against police brutality, particularly toward black Americans and racial oppression.

While Trump may not be able to suspend National Football League players, we guarantee he'll continue tweeting about the issue throughout the entire season so he can distract his racist fans from seeing how much of a dumpster fire his administration has been.

In a separate protest, Philadelphia Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins and De'Vante Bausby raised their fists during the playing of the song before their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

But, that wasn't the most pointed Tweet at the president from Jordan.
