Oakland Raiders Running Back Marshawn Lynch once again sat for our nations National Anthem this past Sunday against Patriots; however, Lynch added a little extra sideline grandstanding that was sure to get media attention and no doubt a tweet from a very important person, namely President Trump.

Because Sunday’s game was being played not in the U.S.A., but in Mexico at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, and Lynch being a self-described anti-American oppressed black man decided to stand for the Mexican National Anthem, while sitting and disrespecting Old Glory.

And almost as if on cue President Trump took to Twitter early Monday morning tweeting out: "Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season, attendance and ratings way down."

Moreover, that’s actually the point, in that the NFL continues its free-fall into the abyss, losing viewers every week, which eventually will affect the league's bottom line, “big time.” When it does the grandstanding, the theatrics, the sideline antics will stop.

Lynch, like his buddy former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, is playing the race card, using the benevolence of our great country to game the system, for whatever perceived historical grievances that these two and others seem to have towards America, which by-the-way made them multimillionaires and apparently fulfilling their “American Dream.”

Perhaps if Lynch and Kaepernick actually did a little research on Mexico where real law and order and respect for due process doesn’t usually exist for law-abiding citizens, and where mainstream journalist are routinely assaulted and intimidated for attempting to print the truth, at last count 7-journalists have been murdered this year alone, just recently the body of a missing Mexican reporter was found in the town of Michoacán.

Jan-Albert Hootsen, CPJ correspondent in Mexico said: “There’s been a tendency by the authorities to disqualify either the victim’s work as a journalist, or focus on personal issues and such as the possible motive, even if there are clear signs that the victim’s work as a reporter was in fact the motive.”

Do you think President Trump was correct in asking the NFL to suspend Lynch?
