Lions Lock Arms, Kneel Before Game In Defiance To Our Country
In a show of defiance against President Donald Trump’s criticisms of NFL players and the league, Detroit Lions owner Martha Ford locked arms with coach Jim Caldwell and other members of the team in a row of solidarity that also included Ford’s three daughters and quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Nearby, eight Lions players knelt on one knee for the national anthem, then joined their fellow players in linking arms before Sunday’s heartbreaking 30-26 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Even Ford Field’s anthem singer Rico Lavelle took a knee as he sang the word “brave,” lowering his head and raising his right fist into the air. The teams appears to be bent on taking down the NFL by there anti american stance.
