Delanie Walker, a player for the Titans has recently released a message to fans, and it seems that they haven’t taken his words lightly, putting him under a lot of heat.
In his statement, Walker said, “First off, I’m going to say this: We’re not disrespecting the military, the men and woman that serve in the Army. That’s not what it’s all about,” adding how, “I’ve been in the USO. I support the troops. This is not about that. It’s about equal rights, and that’s all everyone is trying to show, is that we all care about each other.”
But he didn’t stop there, since when asked about the fans that didn’t want to come to their games, he responded by saying, “OK. Bye. I mean, if you feel that’s something, we’re disrespecting you, don’t come to the game. You don’t have to. No one’s telling you to come to the game. It’s your freedom of choice to do that.”
After President Donald Trump unleashed his fiery tweets at the league, the Titans along with two other teams skipped the national anthem this Sunday. Of course, the commander-in-chief predicted the backlash he would receive from the league, but as a result, many conservatives also surfaced in support, by avoiding to go to their games, burning season tickets and switching the channel when the time for an NFL game comes, thus resulting in an all-time low ratings for the NFL.
