Cris Collinsworth: Trump Should Apologize For Calling Players Who Kneel “Son of A B*tch” (VIDEO)
Cris Collinsworth is usually not one to make any type of political statements, but it’s hard to ignore what was said by Donald Trump at a rally on Friday in Alabama.
The Sunday Night Football host called for President Trump to apologize for calling NFL players who kneel during the national anthem “sons of bitches.’
“I would say he should apologize,” Collinsworth said. “They’re not SOBs, they’re smart thoughtful guys, they really are.”
“But I guarantee you if the president invited — I can make a list of 10 guys — to the White House and heard their stories and heard their thoughts and heard how concerned they are about America, they would find the common ground and they would move this forward.”
“And I think an apology for the SOB comment would go a long way,” Collinsworth added.

Every team in the league that has played on Sunday has had at least one player participate in a national anthem protest in response to what Trump said a few days ago.
