In the first game played since President Donald Trump called players who kneel for the national anthem sons of bitches, the tone has been set.
More than two dozens combined players from the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens knelt during the playing of the anthem, Yahoo News reported.
Other players, along with Jaguars owner Shad Khan and Ravens coach John Harbaugh, locked arms in an apparent display of unity.
And all of this occurred on foreign soil, in London, England’s Wembley Stadium.

Kahn’s participation is particularly noteworthy, as he had donated $1 million to President Trump’s campaign, according to Yahoo News.
It came hours after another of the president’s friends, New England Patriot’s owner Robert Kraft, spoke out against the president.
The gesture was also notable as former Ravens player Ray Lewis knelt, after months of criticizing former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for doing the same.
Many on social media were outraged.
These disgusting pieces of garbage disgrace our country on foreign soil. They’re not worth a second of your time or a penny of your money. https://t.co/efQffzOXDx
