Steve Kerr Rips NFL For Using Anthem As “Fake Patriotism, Nationalism” (VIDEO)
If there’s one thing Steve Kerr will speak out on, it’s social injustices and politics, and he does it unapologetically.
On Wednesday, the NFL passed a set of new guidelines for the National Anthem going forward, and they somehow made the situation worse as they are now forcing players to stand or be fined if they are out on the field during the Anthem. They also have the option of staying in the locker room if they so choose.
Hours before the Warriors are set to take on the Houston Rockets in a crucial Game 5 match-up, the Golden State head coach was asked about the NFL and their new Anthem policy, so he decided to rip the league and the policy to shreds.
