Americans are in disbelief over the continued anthem protests.
Many believe Roger Goodell should’ve stepped in and put an end to it during the 2016-2017 season.
Now, this former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL great just slammed Marshawn Lynch and Roger Goodell.
Appearing on Fox and Friends, former NFL running back Herschel Walker gave a piece of his mind about the ongoing protests, saying he is “insulted” and thinks Lynch is “taking this as a joke.”
“I said earlier on, the commissioner should have handled this at the very beginning. He should have said, ‘Everyone stand, and at the end of the season, we’ll go to Washington and do something about it.'”
“I’ve been saying that guys should have been suspended at the beginning. I don’t care what people say. The National Anthem is the United States of America. That’s where you live. That’s where we get everything that we have, here in the United States. You never protest that.”
He went on to rip Lynch to TMZ, saying:
“To stand for the Mexico anthem and sit for the American anthem is total disrespect,” Herschel told TMZ Sports in NYC. “Lost respect for you … that’s just not right.”
TMZ also noted:
Walker says disagreeing with Donald Trump is fine — but clearly thinks the way Marshawn expressed it is outta line. As the former NFL superstar’s told us in the past, he believes taking the fight to Congress AFTER the season is the way to go.
Herschel also took aim at LaVar Ball — saying the Big Baller owes Trump an apology for claiming POTUS didn’t help get his son, LiAngelo, back from China.
There are many pro football fans who feel the same way as Herschel Walker, regardless of their political leanings.
What are your thoughts? Should the National Anthem be considered “off limits” for legitimate protests?
