San Francisco Giants Manager & Multiple Players Take A Knee During National Anthem

Linkedin Share

If you’re a Los Angeles Dodgers fan, you didn’t need another reason to hate the San Francisco Giants. And yet, on Monday, they gave you another one – if you’re a proud American.

Manager Gabe Kapler and multiple Giants players decided to kneel for the national anthem before their afternoon game.

Here we go again.

From Mercury News:

Manager Gabe Kapler, first base coach Antoan Richardson and outfielders Jaylin Davis, Mike Yastrzemski and Austin Slater were among the San Francisco Giants who knelt during the playing of the national anthem ahead of Monday’s exhibition game against the Oakland A’s.

Members of the Giants team took a knee on the same Coliseum field where former Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial injustice on September 23, 2017.

WATCH:

If you thought kneeling during the National Anthem was a problem a year or two ago for the NFL, just wait until the upcoming season kicks off. Taking a knee is going to be the cool thing to do.

A number of players have already stated that they will kneel, including Cleveland Browns loudmouth quarterback Baker Mayfield.

But what if coaches start kneeling? Wouldn’t that set a poor example for their squads?

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said in a video conference with reporters on Thursday that he is considering joining his players and taking a knee.

Rhule said, “I would consider anything as we move forward. I’m supportive of the cause. I’m supportive of the movement. I’m supportive of social justice. I think for every person, coach or player that will be a very personal decision. I think it has to be made at the right time and the right reason for everybody.”

LeBron James and many other athletes went after NFL legend Drew Brees, all because the star quarterback had the audacity to claim that he doesn’t “agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.”
