"As a result, the BCPBA will no longer participate in this ticket program, and we are asking all of our members, as well as members of the Dade County PBA and Palm Beach County PBA, not to participate either", the organization posted on Facebook. If members already did so, the association suggested they call the Dolphins for a ticket refund.
Dolphins players Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled and Robert Quinn raised his fist during the national anthem before their preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday. Players have said they are protesting during the anthem to bring attention to civilians killed by police officers. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action. The anthem will continue to be played before every game, and all player and non-player personnel on the field at that time are expected to stand during the presentation of the flag and performance of the anthem.
Proud Pogba happy to repay trust as Man Utd captain
Speaking to Sky sports the Manchester United defender had a lot to say about his first goal for Manchester United . I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.
"Most of that money goes to the players anyway", he continued.
That didn't sit well with the players, though. "While those discussions continue, the National Football League has agreed to delay implementing or enforcing any club work rules that could result in players being disciplined for their conduct during the performance of the anthem". "You can't say as a league that you support the players and the protest and then blackball the players that initially started the protest". "We have a lot of police officers in the county who are ex-military".
In a tweet Thursday, Kaepernick lauded Stills and Wilson, two of the Dolphins who protested Thursday night. "Stay strong brothers!" the tweet read.
