Police union tells officers to return their Miami Dolphins tickets for refunds

NFL player responds to Trump's tweet: 'What a goober'

Two Miami Dolphins wide receivers, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, knelt during the playing of the national anthem before their preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Hard Rock Stadium on Thursday.

Two Dolphins players made a decision to kneel before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, despite the controversy surrounding the action. If members already did so, the association suggested they call the Dolphins for a ticket refund.

BCPBA also asked members of the Dade County PBA and Palm Beach PBA not to participate in the discount ticketing program.

President Trump unloaded on the protesting NFL players who chose to demonstrate during the performance of the USA national anthem Thursday night, saying all athletes should "stand proudly" during the 'Star-Spangled Banner'. "We're not hurting anybody".

The NFL previously sought to impose a new policy that would have prevented any player from kneeling or protesting during the national anthem without being penalized.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase has said he was not telling his players what to do during the anthem and the team did not have a policy regarding anthem protests before Thursday night's game.

While Trump may not be able to suspend National Football League players, we guarantee he'll continue tweeting about the issue throughout the entire season so he can distract his racist fans from seeing how much of a dumpster fire his administration has been. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he said.

"The NFL has been engaged in constructive discussions with the NFL Players Association regarding the anthem and issues of equality and social justice that are of concern to many Americans".

An increasing number of players joined him, but critics perceived the protests as unpatriotic and disrespectful of the American flag and United States military.

"My brother @kstills continued his protest of systemic oppression tonight by taking a knee".
