Miami Dolphins say they'll stay in locker room for NFL National Anthem. 'We don't need another publicity parade'

Members over the Miami Dolphins say they willstay insidefor both “Lo stendardo a stelle” e il “Alza ogni voce e canta” — Conosciuto come il Black National Anthembefore their game against the New England Patriots Sunday.

The powerful video, posted on Twitter Thursday, was over two minutes long and featured players who each spoke a line about why they decided to sit out the anthems.
If we could just right our wrongs, we wouldn’t need two songs.
We don’t need another publicity parade.
    We need changed hearts, not just a response to pressure.
    The video came as the NFL kicked off its 2020 stagione — one vastly different from seasons past. Per uno, as the Covid-19 pandemic rages on, stands this year will be almost empty. There will also be a new emphasis on social justice, following a summer of unrest after the killing of George Floyd and other Black Americans at the hands of police.
    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced this month the league has planned a series of social justice initiatives, including helmet decals, a voter activation push and phrases stenciled in the end zones.
    We need owners with influence and pockets bigger than ours,” players say in the Dolphins’ video. “And you fight for prison reform and innocent lives, and you repair the communities that were tossed to the side, and you admit you gained from it, and you swallowed your pride, and when greed is not the compass but the love is the guide, and when the courts don’t punish skin color, but punish the crime, fino ad allora, we’ll just skip the long production, and stay inside.
    The video concludes with the team’s head coach stating, “Before the media starts wondering and guessing, we just answered all your questions.
    We’ll just stay inside.

    NFL says it should have listened earlier

    Durante l'estate, the NFL announced it would pledge $ 250 million over the next 10 years to help fight systemic racism and use its television network to raise awareness around social justice issues.
    But football players say they’ve been talking about the problems for years and in June, Goodell admitted the league was wrong not to have listened.
    Lo scorso mese, the commissioner said he wished the league would havelistened earlierto Colin Kaepernick when the player began kneeling during the anthem to protest police brutality in 2016.
    L'ex San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not played in the NFL since that controversy and several players in the league have called for Kaepernick to be signed back.
    Goodell said in August he now better understands why players were protesting and expressed frustration at those who mischaracterize the actions.
      It is not about the flag,” Goodell ha detto. “These are not people who are unpatriotic.
      What they were trying to do is exercise their right to bring attention to something that needs to get fixed. That misrepresentation of who they were and what they were doing was the thing that really gnawed at me.
