Broncos players say they'll stand for national anthem

Broncos players say they'll stand for national anthem

Last Sunday in Buffalo, 32 Broncos players knelt during the national anthem as a response to President Donald Trump's comments that NFL owners should fire "son of a bitch" protesters.

The Broncos' statement harped on the need for the team to demonstrate togetherness and sought to clarify that the team was not protesting the military or the flag last week.

Broncos head coach Joseph Vance and general manager John Elway expressed that they preferred politics be separate from games following last week's fixture.

"Last week members of our team joined their brothers around the National Football League in a powerful display of unity. As controversial as it appeared, we needed to show our collective strength and resolve", a note from the players read.

The team said its locker room is very diverse, but that being members of the same squad unite them as a team.

"We are a team and we stand together", the players said in a release.

"We talked about it as a team, like how we talked about the decision to do it before the game", Miller said.

"We talked about it as a team just, like how we did before Sunday's game". "We felt like that was the best direction to go. Hopefully we can get back to that this week".

"We had a meeting yesterday after practice and we chose to stand as a team", Denver coach Vance Joseph said.

"Had a meeting [Wednesday] after practice. they wanted a statement of what they were doing", Joseph said. "So I think changing the platform in the future - I'm not sure what it is now - but changing it in the future will help us make positive change". "We all went with it, so everybody stands". "With the environment that we're in right now, no one's going to make any change".
