Before the season opening game that pitted the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers for a Super Bowl rematch (not really), Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall started up the conversation again of players not standing for the National Anthem when he took a knee—just like his former teammate at Nevada, QB Colin Kaepernick, did during a preseason game.
During the second quarter, Marshall was suffering from concussion like symptoms and had to take a knee on the field, and KARMA swept across the internet right after.
Brandon Marshall is in concussion protocol. Karma sucks I guess you should have stood for the national anthem.
