Here’s The One NFL Player Who Kneeled During The Anthem On Thanksgiving

Vernon took a knee right before his team took on the Washington Redskins in the Thursday night game

Vernon took a knee right before his team took on the Washington Redskins in the Thursday night game. No other players demonstrated during the anthem.

Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon kneels on Thanksgiving night. Vernon’s father is a retired police officer, and he’s been kneeling for the anthem since Trump’s comments in September.

It also appears no players kneeled during the day’s two previous games, which saw the Minnesota Vikings defeat the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Chargers win against the Dallas Cowboys.

  1. This guy is a horse’s ass, and so is anyone who aligns with these knee givers.

    I would boycott more of their backers and advertisers; is there a list somewhere?
    The NFL can go to hell.
