Player protests sweep NFL as Trump continues his attacks
By Mike Murphy
Many kneel or lock arms in unity during national anthem in response to Trump's recent comments
Scores of NFL players made public displays of unity Sunday in defiance of President Donald Trump's criticism of those who protest during the playing of the national anthem.
Forms of protest were seen at every NFL game Sunday. While some players took a knee while "The Star-Spangled Banner" was played, others locked arms or stayed off the field entirely (http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/20801902/pittsburgh-steelers-remain-locker-room-national-anthem).
