On Sunday, the Miami Dolphins were set to take on the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, but before the game could start, the camera caught running back Arian Foster and teammates Jelani Jenkins, Michael Thomas and Kenny Stills all taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.

While many have scrutinized the players heavily for doing this, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has absolutely no issue with this and is behind them 100% as he stated after the game.
“I don’t think there was any lack of respect,” Ross said. “Everyone in this team and whole organization respects the flag and what it stands for. These guys are making a conversation about something that’s very important topic in this country. I’m 100 percent in support of them.”
