At this morning's NFL game in London, several members of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars knelt during the "Star-Spangled Banner," but stood during Britain's "God Save the Queen."
Almost all of the Jags' on-field and sideline personnel could be seen locking arms during the American national anthem, including owner Shad Khan. Some players stood while others knelt.
Footage showed several Ravens also kneeling for the anthem, which was penned in their home city by Francis Scott Key in 1814.
Pete Hegseth blasted the contrast on "Fox & Friends" saying it was unbelievable that they showed more respect to another nation - albeit a close ally - than to their home.
"This is going to hurt them in their wallets," Maria Bartiromo said of the National Football League.....

Andrew Young: “Yeah, England invented slavery”.
‘Ravens owner Shad Khan’
I think I can identify just ONE problem here.............
GTHO ...move to London and live under that KhanMan “mayor”
England never colonized any persons of color.
Someone should have told them it was “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and they would’ve knelt!
We must deport these turncoat loyalists to the British crown!
They are Men Without a Country.
I did not see this, but it would have made me even angrier.
I stopped watching last year, but never really watched the Baltimore Cravens or the Jacksonville Jackasses unless they happened to be playing the Packers.
Oh well, farewell NFL.
They stand for GOD SAVE THE QUEEN, who is a descendant of Elizabeth I whose captain John Hawkins was made rich in the slave trade. He was given a Coat of Arms with a bound slave on it.
But they take the slave’s position on their knees when the National Anthem is played even though 700,000 white boys died to settle the slavery issue once and for all.
When I lived in the UK as a Yank.....I would stand out of respect for the country where I lived at the time.....but never sang their NA. I thought that was a fair comprimise. I also felt I should never “courtesy “ to the Queen as well as I was not her “subject” never having been a “citizen”. Respected their laws, tho......just as I expect people to respect OUR laws.
Yep the Paki foreign owner of the Jags would love to move to Londonstan
If the players only KNEW how England ‘invented’ slavery would they kneel for their anthem? 2 more London games to find out. Let’s not forget there’s a game in Mexico City coming up. Do they know the meaning of the word Conquistadores?
Yep. Stood for the UK anthem but didn’t sing. But we’re Conservatives who believe in class, respect and decorum.
Tell them the Queen is and old white woman.
Those sons of bitches are one blown knee away from Food Stamps.
Just because these dopes went to college, doesn’t meant they went there for any other reason other than to pad a college’s football program. (another issue that need to be addressed)
Their grasp of history (and irony) is little better than a 3rd grader’s
What we hasve witnessed the last 48 hours will be with us a long long time. It has exposed black racism to a level not readily comprehended. Seated is hatred for out country, black over paid athletes have been permitted by the NFL, in violation of their written rules, to flagrantly disrespect our country. I now disrespect them. They have no right what so ever to use the NFL stage for their vile acts of treason ANYMORE THAN YOU CAN STAND UP IN YOUR WORK PLACE AND START SPOUTING PROFANITIES.
The NFL has now become complicit with anti Americanism. The NFL prohibited the Dallas Cowboys from a symbolic support of the 5 Dallas policemen killed by Blacks in a brutal murder and yet they condone this anti American hatred. This will not end until this communist hatred of America and all it stands for is crushed in the dirt.
He owns the Jags.
I see they’re history scholars, as well ....
The dummies don't realize that by kneeling they are acknowledging their state of servitude.
