As most of us are familiar by now, the main topic taking over the headlines in the past few weeks has been the National Football League, whose players have decided to protest inequality through disrespecting the primary American values, starting with the national anthem, by kneeling during its play right before the start of the games. And despite the criticism from their massive fanbase which counts millions, it seems that these protesters aren’t ready to give up yet.
However, there are also players which choose to oppose these protesters, such as NFL Quarterback Aaron Rodgers who recently came forward asking fans to join with the Greenbay Packers in standing and linking arms during the national anthem, to show “unity,” and oppose the protesters.
Right before the national anthem started playing during this Sunday’s game, Aaron Rodgers locked arms with his teammates, and now, Rodgers has asked his fans to join him along with the rest of the Packers at the matchup against Chicago Bear, all with the goal of sending a message of unity by linking arms.
In a statement released earlier, Rodgers explained, “This is about equality. This is about unity and love and growing together as a society and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people,” before going on to add how, “we’ve got to come together and talk about these things and growing as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society.”
Rodgers as well as the rest of the Packers truly deserve our support for making an effort to stand up and teach these protesters some manners and respect!
