Tom Brady Respects Players Kneeling For Anthem

What does Tom Brady think of players kneeling for anthem? Well, Tom Brady respects players kneeling for anthem. In a recent interview Tom Brady respects players kneeling for anthem.

The NFL national anthem is a controversy. In so far, was started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. This has been one of the most divisive issues the league. That has been faced in a long time.

The players that have been kneeling during the anthem say they are doing so to create awareness for social injustice, while the people that are against them feel kneeling during the anthem is disrespectful to the flag and members of the armed forces, who died for their freedom.

New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, who has been silent about the issue for the past two season, finally opened up about it during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The five-time Super Bowl champion said “a lot of good conversations” came out of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem last season. He also added, “I respect why people are doing what they are doing. And they’re doing it for different reasons, and that’s OK.” The New England Patriots may have other opinions.

“I’ve been playing sports long enough [to know] everyone comes from something different, and I think showing respect for everybody, in a locker room, with a team of guys trying to go in the same direction — you better have that empathy for everybody. That’s what sports are about,” Brady said.

Last season, the protests reached a fever pitch when U.S. President Donald Trump got involved. At a rally, the president suggested that owners should fire players who kneel, which led to more players kneeling or linking arms during the anthem. But by the end of the season, there were very few players kneeling during the anthem.

Things took a turn for the worse during the offseason as NFL owners approved a new rule that requires players to either stay in the locker room during the anthem or stand on the sidelines.
