  • Rishard Matthews tweets he's done if NFL makes national anthem rule

Tennessee Titans player Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday that he'll quit the NFL if the league implements a rule forcing players to stand during the anthem.

The wide receiver was originally responding to reports of the NFL making it mandatory to stand for the national anthem.

Matthews deleted the tweet shortly after, but a screenshot had already been saved by the news producer.

Trump, via Twitter, inaccurately posted that Goodell's memo ordered the players to stand for the national anthem, which the league quickly rebuked. In the three games since, the Titans collectively stayed in the locker room once, and Matthews stayed in the locker room until after the national anthem twice.

Goodell also wrote the anthem debate will be a large topic of discussion at league meetings next week in NY. It was a stance started by Colin Kaepernick, but the protests became a national debate and an NFL wide phenomenon when president Donald Trump called protesting players sons of bitches.

The Titans remained in the locker room during the anthem before their Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Last month, Matthews pledged to donate $75,000 to organizations that support oppressed communities. As minorities, what do you want to happen before we say anything? Why is it anti-American to exercise the right of free speech, while many drape themselves in the flag hypocritically while trying to deny others the freedom to exercise that right?
