Rishard Matthews Would Rather Quit Than Be Forced To Stand

Share

Matthews' stance came in response to a question via quitter that asked: "If NFL makes new rule on anthem will you still stay in locker room and face the fine/penalty?"

On Thursday afternoon, Matthews was asked by Matt Parker, a local Nashville producer, via Twitter if he would continue to remain in the locker room during the anthem if the National Football League created a rule requiring players to stand or face a penalty.

Rishard Matthews made the comment on Twitter earlier Thursday but has since deleted the tweet.

Yellowstone's Supervolcano Is Going to Put Us Out of Our Misery
However, as per the new study, the magma can rapidly refill making the volcano explosive within a short span of time . If the supervolcano underneath Yellowstone erupts again, we may have far less advance warning time than we thought.

The protests by Matthews started following a torrent of criticism from President Donald Trump, who attacked players for not standing during the anthem.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a memo Tuesday he believes players should stand when the song plays.

The reaction to the memo was such at the National Football League and NFLPA issued a joint statement, with some members of the union due to be present at next week's owners meetings.

Nadal and Federer cruise in Shanghai
Dimitrov battled hard in the final set but Nadal was keen to avoid going the distance once more and took the final set 6-3. Mathematically, there are obviously chances that I can be bumped out if I don't win, for example, tomorrow.

The wide receiver was originally responding to reports of the NFL making it mandatory to stand for the national anthem.

The Titans remained in the locker room during the anthem before their Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks. The receiver explained he didn't want his protest seen as a "publicity stunt". It should be worth noting that the players are peacefully protesting, though, and they aren't protesting the national anthem itself. "I don't want to take away from what the whole protest is about, which is oppression, police brutality and inequality in this country". It's your right to stand or sit down.
