Why The Miami Dolphins Plan On Skipping The Anthem Completely May Surprise You

(Tea Party 247) – While NFL teams gear up for a series of spectacular displays of progressive virtue signaling, the Miami Dolphins are planning what could be described as a rather different approach.

The team has announced they’re planning to simply stay in the locker room during the national anthem as well as the “black national anthem,” which the league has added to games, because they feel protests on the field are “empty gestures.”

Well, well, well.

These players are catching on.

“This attempt to unify only creates more divide. So, we’ll skip this song and dance, and as a team we’ll stay inside,” a group of 18 Dolphins players said in a video posted on Thursday, Breitbart reports.

“We need changed hearts, not just a response to pressure. Enough, no more fluff and empty gestures. We need owners with influence and pockets bigger than ours to call up officials and flex political power.”

The players expressed their understandable disgust with “empty gestures” currently on display across the league. It’s not that they’ve all taken the conservative red pill or anything; they called for prison reform (actually, that’s something Trump has done quite well, but I digress), denounced police brutality (again, conservatives would agree) and criticized the league for taking millions from the U.S. military for patriotic displays during games (fans happen to love this, by the way, and millions of men and women serve, including many of color, but again…digression).

Breitbart notes:

This is the first team to make a united statement about the social justice issues that have riled pro sports since 2016 when former NFL player Colin Kaepernick began protesting against the country by taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem.

The players collectively feel as though having two anthems is divisive and unhelpful. “We don’t need another publicity parade,” player Bobby McCain said in the video.

Linebacker Elandon Roberts added, “So if my dad was a soldier but the cops killed my brother, do I stand for one anthem and kneel for the other?”

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores closed out the statement saying, “Before the media starts wondering and guessing, they just answered all your questions. We’ll just stay inside.”

Flores also said that Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross supported the team’s plan and the video explaining it, according to ESPN.

“I talked to Steve about the video. He was supportive,” Flores said. “It was directed at everyone [in the NFL]. I think every individual in this country can do a little bit better — players, coaches, owners, media. That was the message. To try to misconstrue the message or take it in some different light, that’s wasn’t what the message was supposed to be.

“We can all do better. We all need to do better. What’s happening in this country — and really around the world — [is] we need change. It’s something we’ve been saying for a long time. The video speaks for itself from that standpoint. From a message standpoint, it’s that we can all do better.”

Breitbart adds:

The players who appeared in the video include, defensive linemen Christian Wilkins, Davon Godchaux and Shaq Lawson, offensive linemen Ted Karras and Jesse Davis, linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts, safeties Bobby McCain, Eric Rowe and Kavon Frazier, cornerbacks Byron Jones and Jamal Perry, tight ends Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe, wide receivers Preston Williams and Isaiah Ford, and running backs Matt Breida and Patrick Laird.

  9. I’m with many here. Just don’t watch until they can straighten their crap up. They are millionaires, this is what they get paid to do, play football. The wonderful Country made that possible, they had all the opportunities possible all their lives. They got lucky because they were physically superior & got paid for it. Good for them but if the Commies take over. They’ll be players for the State until they are too old, then they will go to a work camp somewhere since they are not smart enough to be useful at anything else for the most part. Exceptions of course but schools pass them through as they did when I was in school. As far as the ladies who work at home, I can just guess at the skills they have. Sounds like bullshit or else they are trolling for Johns on here somehow.

  10. So long as the NFL continues to foment division by playing the black national anthem, I won’t purchase anything that funds the NFL, nor will I watch any game. I will also avoid as much as possible and not purchase or do business with any sponsor of the NFL.

  11. Haven’t watched football for 3 years, stopped watching baseball this year, stopped buying Nike product for years now. What started with Floyd’s death where 99.9% of Americans agreed was horrible has turned into what we see daily on tv, burning of neighborhoods, destroying businesses, looting, attacks and murders of innocent people, riots in the streets and the ambush and killing of Police officers. I have yet to hear one football player stand up against the violence, for that matter I haven’t heard any professional athlete or corporation either. So I’m guessing you are all ok with what’s going on. WELL IM NOT. At this point I don’t give a RATS ASS if you stand, kneel, sit or stay in your locker room for the National Anthem, professional sports are dead to me and you will all find out soon enough you are dead to a lot of people. Looking forward to your ratings.

  12. Something to ponder…The United States has become a place where entertainers and professional athletes are mistaken for people of importance I’ve Needed a DOCTOR, I’ve Needed A TEACHER ,I NEED farmers every day .I have needed a auto mechanic a plumber a house painter and a lot of every day people. But I have NEVER not even once, NEEDED A pro athlete a media personality or a Hollywood entertainer for ANYTHING…..

    • The only time we did was when the teachers went on strike in Florida. The then Dolphins went out and taught classes in the JR High. 7th grade being the only one that was in session due to the lack of qualified teachers. Larry Little, Csonka and a number of other taught English, World Geography, History at our school.

  14. Why we the people are not watching football anymore ? Because we stand for all the Black, White and diverse people that have fought and died to keep us Free!!!!!!! Football do you remember Patrick Daniel Tillman that gave up football to fight and died for his country? Say his name Patrick Daniel Tillman!!!!!!!!!!

  15. These people are so confused and brain washed, they are doing exactly what Dr MLK fought against to judge others by their characters and content and not color. People fought against segregation and now we have one anthem for black liberals and anti Americans and one for Conservatives and Pro Americans, this is segregation all over. unimaginable but it’s now what is facing this WOKE leagues.

  16. Football used to be my escape now with all the insanity and hate I have quit supporting and watching football and all professional sports. They will only get me back when they start being Americans and quit all this Socialist Communist behavior. The anthem and flag are proud symbols of our nation and a lot of Americans gave their lives to preserve our freedoms.

  17. Hey, folks! Not sure what the issue is!!! Let the NFL & players do whatever they want. They’re only doing it cuz you’re still watching, listening, buying their “wannabe” junk. Stop doing All of it and see how fast The players turn on the owners. STOP watching, STOP listening, and STOP buying NFL junk!

  18. When these millionaires put their money where their mouths are, to try to help the inner cities, then maybe I will start watching Pro sports again. Until you back up the talk, no chance! More blacks are killed by blacks, by a hundred fold. Criminals need to serve time regardless of color!!! Supporting criminals making bad choices, is idiotic at best.

  19. Best choice is to let the little boys play their game and everyone else stay at home or do something productive without ever flipping the TV to a channel that even talks about sports!

  20. I’m sorry but staying in the locker room doesn’t get it. If you cannot show your love of this great Country, by standing for ourNational Anthem, then I cannot watch you play football! There is only one National Anthem and many men and women of color have given their lives for this Country under the Stars and Stripes. If this goes on for a couple of years you will all loose.

    • Where else can you be hired to work & do a job and be allowed to ‘protest’ anything? These overpaid spoiled big babies are PAID (far too much in my opinion) to do ONE THING………their JOB & PLAY BALL!! If they can’t do that, they need to stay at home and NOT GET PAID!! They all can afford to rent a stadium or something and protest to their hearts content. The hard working fans didn’t pay the over priced amount for tickets to have to witness these brats protesting!!!

  22. This is racism at it’s finest. Look up the meaning of racist. Someone how is demanding special rights, and treatment because of their race or ethnic background. ALL LIVES MATTER. We are all Gods children. We should all learn to get along. Life is short enough without fighting among ourselves.

  23. Kudos to the Dolphins. However, one team does not make success. If any team kneels or plays the black anthem, everyone should walk out of the stadium! Or if on TV, turn off the game and watch Mr. Rogers. Anything to drive down the ratings. And blacklist (no pun intended) any and all advertisers who run ads during the game. Hurt em where the pain is the worst. It may take time, but stopping this Insanity is worth a a few missed games.

  24. If the Dolphins wanted to truly make that statement they would stand on the field and support the flag and the greatest nation in the world. Plus they would want to show real respect to the people that protect those freedoms. They would not hide in a locker room like cowards.

  25. NFL should skip all anthems. Neither one that they presently perform honors anyone because they have become merely stages for political statements. There are limited fans in some cases and no fans in others. Why subject them to political statements – one sided ones at that. They came for a football game, provide them a game with NO political agenda- NO ANTHEMS NO SLOGANS ON FIELDS OR ON PLAYERS UNIFORMS

    • John. In the past, playing the National Anthem had no issues for generations. By NOT playing it, you have played right into their hands. You will validate their agenda. You lose! They win. Read my comments on a previous text

  26. IMHO any pro athlete that does not stand for the flag and the National Anthem should be suspended without pay. These over paid, a$$ holes are anti American. I use to watch all the pro football I could. No more I also boycott anyone any sponsors products. God bless America

    • AWESOME! We do not need them. AMERICA & GOD FIRST! Otherwise in not AMERICAN VALUES> WE DO NOT WATCH THEM ANYMORE! SAD! They are NOT our HEROES GIVE ME A BRAKE> OUR VETERANS ARE OUR REAL HEROES> AMERICA FIRST

  27. Isn’t there a way to block all these spam messages that have nothing to do with the subject being discussed above? This garbage is an insult to people with even as little as a quarter of a brain and needs to be rid of!
