Anti-American Oakland Raider running back Marshawn Lynch sat during the U.S. National Anthem before a game against the New England Patriots in Estadio Azteca stadium in Mexico City Sunday. He wanted every one to know how much he actually disrespects the United States so he then stood for the Mexican Anthem.
Maybe he should give up his passport and stay in Mexico if he respects them so much more.
Lynch hasn’t stood for the Anthem since returning from retirement this entire season.

Lynch doesn’t like police because he has a criminal past. In 2008, Lynch pled guilty to a hit-and-run accident in Buffalo where he struck a person with his vehicle. In 2009, as a Buffalo Bills RB, he was arrested on felony gun charges.
In 2014 as a Seattle Seahawk, he was arrested for reckless driving.
Five other NFL players protested during the Anthem.
The Dolphins’ Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas took a knee before their game against Tampa Bay.
Giants defensive lineman Olivier Vernon took a knee, as he has done most of the season. The opposing Chiefs stood scattered on their sideline, though cornerback Marcus Peters remained in the tunnel until it was over.
In an update, President Trump tweeted what many of us are thinking.
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.
