Ever since Colin Kaepernick began protesting the national anthem, other NFL players have joined in disrespecting America and the men and women who fought on her behalf.
NFL officials – including Commissioner Roger Goodell – and team executives have expressed support for the players refusing to stand for the national anthem.
But one NFL player just paid a massive price for his protest.
Former Indianapolis Colts cornerback, Antonio Cromartie, knelt and raised his fist in a symbol of black power during the national anthem at a game in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After a poor game performance with Cromartie benched in the second half, the team released the veteran cornerback.
