Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem before Raiders preseason game

Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem before Raiders preseason game

Last night, Marshawn Lynch of the Oakland Raiders showed his support for Kaepernick and the fight against racism by taking a seat during the "Star-Spangled Banner". Kaepernick has not signed with a team for the 2017 season amid accusations league owners - denied by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell - are blackballing him.

Running back Lynch could be seen sitting by an orange cooler and nibbling on a half-eaten banana on Saturday night, instead of standing at attention.

But while Lukaku grabbed the main headlines, the platform was laid by another new signing, Nemanja Matic . "And we don't know. Then we had a quality performance, good personality, they played with lots of confidence and have given the result .

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - The Minnesota Vikings waived former Huskies running back Bishop Sankey with an injured designation after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the exhibition opener. On Saturday, one person was killed and 19 were injured when a vehicle smashed into a group of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, CBS News reported.

Acording to NFL.com and the Associated Press, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio didn't know about Lynch's plans to sit during the national anthem, but he discussed it with him afterward.

"Talked to Marshawn. Wanted to make sure we're on the same page". "He said, 'This is something I've done for 11 years. It's not a form of anything other than me being myself, '" Del Rio said. But I'm going to respect you as a man, you do your thing.

"So, it's a non-issue for me". "If you really not racist, then you won't see what [Kaepernick is] doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have".
