49ers GM John Lynch Says Anthem Protests are Divisive; Uses Warren Sapp as Example of Unity (VIDEO)
Ex-NFLer Jermichael Finley’s Wife Ethers Him For His Comments On Black Athletes Protesting (TWEET)
Former Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley had been on a tirade on social media. First he stated that black athletes are ‘roll models’ to kids, so they should keep their politics to themselves, shut up, and just play.
He then followed that up with a video suggesting Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch and Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett don’t actually care about social injustice. Rather, he thinks their National Anthem protests are publicity stunts.
His comments were so ill-advised and misinformed that his wife, who is white, had to jump on Twitter and serve him up a dose of knowledge on what these athletes are fighting for.
