ALL Browns Players and Coaches Just Stood for the National Anthem Because of THIS Man

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

Last week, 12 Cleveland Browns players chose to follow Colin Kaepernick‘s example and kneel during the National Anthem in protest before their game against the New York Giants.

However, on Saturday before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, every single player and coach stood in respect.

When play-by-play commentator Jim Donovan noticed that they were all standing, his partner, Doug Dieken, gave full credit to Jim Brown who had met with the players right before the game.

Jim Brown, Hall of Fame running back, reportedly told them, “Do not disrespect the flag, do not disrespect your country.”

Jim Brown, who is the most prominent Browns player in franchise history, made headlines just last week when he criticized Colin Kaepernick.

Brown stated:

“Colin has to make up his mind whether he’s truly an activist or rather he’s a football player. Football is commercial. You have owners. You have fans. And you want to honor that if you’re making that kind of money.

If you have a cause, I think you should organize it and present it in a manner where it’s not only you sitting on one knee, but a lot of people that are going to get behind each other and do something about it.

Let me ask you one question: Who is Colin calling on to follow what he’s talking about?

I would advise the young man, if you’re a football player, play football. If you’re going to be a real activist, use your money, use your notoriety.

You have to understand there’s intelligence that’s involved, OK? I can’t be two things at once that contradict each other. If I sign for money, then the people I sign with, they have rules and regulations.”

Brown finished the interview with a powerful statement:

“I’m going to give you the real deal: I’m an American. I don’t desecrate my flag and my national anthem. I’m not gonna do anything against the flag and national anthem.

I’m going to work within those situations. But this is my country, and I’ll work out the problems, but I’ll do it in an intelligent manner.”

Last week’s national anthem protest by the Browns players sparked both positive and negative reactions, some fans even refused to watch any games in the future if they continued to kneel.

It appears Brown took this situation into his own hands on Saturday and was able to talk some sense into the players.

    Enough said. If you don’t like it, turn off the tv. If people want to shoot themselves in the foot and ruin their career, well I don’t have to watch and support it. If I don’t feel supported by someone, then why should I support them?

    Jim Brown is a great man, both on and off the field.

      What did Brown do off the field to make him a great man? March? Make speeches? What?

    “Do not disrespect your country, do not disrespect the flag.”

    Just what the left and MSM doesn’t want you to hear. WTG Jim Brown! Now, go around the league and share these very same thoughts with all of the other teams, especially Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks.

    Knowing these Black players though, they’ll find something else to $hit on that could be equally disrespectful.

  • Guy Daley

    It wasn’t Jim Brown that was responsible. It was the league and the team owner. Those players were threatened with their job. NFL does NOT want to see its ratings decline any further from this foolishness.

    • TO BLACKS

      They weren’t threatened with their jobs since it would be against the NFLPA rules and they would have to pay them their guaranteed money if they released them. Also, the NFL would lose every court case involving standing for the anthem.

      • Guy Daley

        You’re a 100% WRONG. The NFL has a huge variety of clauses in their contracts in order to control players behavior because the players help form the image of the NFL. They can and do put all manner of clauses in the contracts to make sure that misbehaving players do not have an impact on their image. Same for sponsors. They also have the CONTRACTUAL right to drop someone (Tiger Woods for example) if it appears that their behavior is going to be associated with the product they are trying to sell.

        This type of “disrespect” is catching the NFL off guard. They cannot write in a clause in the middle of a contract, because both parties have to agree. THAT MEANS, when contracts come due, there will be a clause to prevent this behavior from happening in the future.

        Sorry, you know nothing about contract law. Don’t pretend that you do.

        • TO BLACKS

          Once again, you are dumb. The owners CAN’T make a player stand for a song, and if they cut a player for that they still HAVE TO PAY his guaranteed portion of his contract not to mention they (NFL) would be sued and lose. The team would take a cap hit too. READ. LEARN!

          • Guy Daley

            Dope, you were to lazy to read my comment weren’t you? I said nothing about terminating a contract in the middle of a contract. I’ll bet you didn’t know this, you halfwit, but you can also threaten someone with NOT RENEWING THEIR CONTRACT. Do you think all of their contracts are for life?

          • TO BLACKS

            Once again, dumbass, you can’t legally make these players stand for a song nor can your fired them for it. You think this is Nazi Germany? Dumbshit!

          • Carolyn Burton

            Look in the mirror for a Dumbshit!

          • TO BLACKS

            Oh yeah, you are a NI GGER. BLOCKED FOR BEING A DUMBASS NI GGER S HIT STAINED SKIDMARK.

      • Ask Ben Roethlisberger about his clause that he will no longer ride motorcycles after he smashed his face on a Hayabusa.

        Don’t tell me they can’t be threatened with their jobs.

        • TO BLACKS

          That was a negotiated clause in his contract agreed by 2 parties, that doesn’t apply to some stupid song and standing to it, which would be unconstiutional and the NFL would be sued and lose.

    • TO BLACKS

      Oh shit, you are a NI GGER. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  • TO BLACKS

    They aren’t BROWN, they are NI GGERS.

  • TO BLACKS

    To most idiots here and elsewhere it’s more offensive if one of these players doesn’t stand for the anthem than beating up their GFs/wives or being thug criminals.

  • sebastian turtlebee
