The Houston Texans promised to make a point in Seattle on Sunday, and they followed through.
Prior to their game against the Seahawks, a vast majority of Texans players knelt during the national anthem to protest the recent comments of team owner Bob McNair. During a recent meeting to discuss the widespread anthem protests, the 79-year-old owner reportedly said the NFL can’t afford to have “the inmates running the prison” — a statement he says was taken out of context.

Just when you thought these protests were starting to go away, something — or someone — comes along and stokes the fire.
Of course, president Donald Trump perhaps is the biggest culprit of that.
