Jaguars Owner Shad Khan Issues Statement After Joining Team Protest

Eastern kickoff in London's Wembley Stadium.

Players on both teams knelt or stood arm-in-arm during the national anthem after Donald Trump sent a barrage of tweets condemning players who kneel during the national anthem to bring awareness to social justice causes. Even the owner of the Jaguars, the uber rich Shad Khan, joined the players on the field in a show of unity.

Khan told the magazine he had supported Trump during the election because he expected him to move to govern from the political center.

The kneeling players stood for the singing of the United Kingdom national anthem. What was most astounding about this display was Jaguars' owner Shahid Khan standing proudly with his team.

The 17 Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars players who took a knee during the presentation of the national anthem in London on Sunday have combined total contracts of almost $450 million. "While many of them are concerned about those issues, and rightfully so, part of what we saw yesterday was a direct response to the president's comments".

His remarks, which National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell labelled as "divisive" have drawn widespread criticism, with a number of National Football League teams releasing statements speaking out against the president and in support of their players. "Fire or suspend!" Trump tweeted. That's our decision. We're gonna be 100 percent. "That's democracy in its highest form".

The actions Sunday follow remarks by President Donald Trump at a Friday rally blasting Kaepernick and others who refuse to stand for the national anthem.

Donald Trump has decided to make National Anthem protests the thing he whines about nonstop this weekend.

On Friday, an angry Trump said in a speech that the protest should no longer be tolerated.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday, Mr Trump told his supporters: 'Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you'd say, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out!"

Trump's clash with one of the biggest stars in the National Basketball Association drew a stinging response from across the National Basketball Association, with Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James among the first to react.

Typically, we hand out Player of the Game honors each week to one exemplary Ravens player, but that can't be done in good conscience this week.
