In response to President Donald Trump’s assaultsthis weekend on the NFL and its players who kneel during the national anthem, the players opposed back in a way that’s become awfully familiar. They asserted by kneeling and/ or linking limbs while the national hymns played Sunday, as the hashtag #TakeAKnee trended on Twitter.

Meanwhile, CBS and Fox broadcast the anthems, a pregame instant neither system often shows.

The protests started Sunday morning when the Ravens and the Jaguars kicked off Week 3 from London’s Wembley Stadium. Musicians from both teams fastened arms during the national chant, multiple Baltimore musicians knelt, and Jacksonville owner Shad Khan–a Trump donor–showed show solidarity with his employees.

Once the game started, Khan liberated this statement.

The Steelers, meanwhile, plainly decided to sit out "the member states national" anthem.

Which is apparently against the league rules.

Here were other units and players locking limbs and protesting.

Before video games embarked, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, one of the best players in the league, posted this on Instagram.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, meanwhile, released this statement.

But the one person who started the national exchange about players kneeling during the national chant wasn’t involved in the objections on Sunday. That’s because Colin Kaepernick is not currently employed.
