As if the NFL players’ message wasn’t clear enough just one week ago, Marshawn Lynch made a pretty clear statement with his pre-game shirt.

Plenty of athletes have followed Colin Kaepernick with national anthem protests since President Donald Trump’s explosive comments:

“Wouldn’t you love one of these NFL owners… when someone disrespects our flag say, “Get that son of a bitch off the field, right now, out, he’s fired.”

In turn, NFLNBA and MLB athletes have responded with either comments pushing back against the president or reactionary statements such as kneeling or staying in the locker room.

This likely isn’t the last aggressive response to Trump.
