Rishard Matthews tweets he's done if NFL makes national anthem rule

Matthews answered a tweet that asked: "If NFL makes new rule on anthem will you still stay in locker room and face the fine/penalty?"

I have heard a number of people maintain that National Football League players should protest on their own time and not on the job.

Matthews, who hit the field for the Titans' Thursday afternoon practice, quickly deleted the tweet. His half-brother, who was killed in Afghanistan, served 10 years in the Marines and his father served 21 years in the Marines. His protest was launched shortly after President Donald Trump's attacks toward National Football League players who choose to protest.

"Worried about how fans will react, and how that will impact ticket sales, the league is reportedly looking at the possibility of a new rule requiring players to appear and stand for the anthem". The memo was not announcing a policy change, it was simply Goodell's stance on the controversy: "As we said yesterday, there will be a discussion of these issues at the owners meeting next week".

This comes after NFL teams across the country began kneeling or staying in their locker rooms during the national anthem because of statements by President Donald Trump.

Tight end Delanie Walker said he received death threats after the Seahawks game after stating that fans who felt disrespected by athletes using their platform to protest don't have to come to games.

Matthews announced September 28 he was donating $75,000 to a group of "organizations working in oppressed communities".

Matthews, a college teammate of Colin Kaepernick, has also been vocal in his support for the former 49ers quarterback who started the national protest movement and remains without a job. "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country".
