Jurrell Casey plans to protest on field during anthem

Tennessee Titans defensive end Jurrell Casey says he plans to protest social injustice on the field during the national anthem before games this season and "take my fine."

"I'm going to take a fine this year, why not?" Casey told CNN at an NFL promotional event in London. "I'm going to protest during the flag. That's what I'm going to say now.

"... It is what it is, I ain't going to let them stop me from doing what I want to do. If they want to have these battles between players and organizations, this is the way it's going to be."

The Titans did not comment on Casey's remarks.

The NFL approved a new national anthem policy in May requiring players and league personnel on the sideline to stand. Players and personnel also have the option to remain in the locker room if they choose not to stand during the anthem.

Under the change, individual clubs have the power to set their own policies to ensure the anthem is being respected during any on-field action. If a player chooses to protest on the sideline the NFL will fine the team. Players could also be fined by their teams, per the policy.

Colin Kaepernick's decision to protest social inequality against minorities by taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem before a preseason game in 2016 spurred other players to protest. President Donald Trump has sharply criticized the actions of protesting players and called on team owners in September to "fire" them. The following week, players and team owners across the league took part in displays of solidarity during the national anthem. Some players continued their on-field protests for the rest of the season.

Casey told CNN his protests in 2018 will be a "continuation" of what he did last season when he raised a fist during the playing of the anthem.

"Around the NFL, guys are definitely not happy about it," Casey said about the policy. "I feel it's not right, I don't think it was a good decision for the NFL to come up with that ruling. But they have their reasons for what they've done."

Casey said he was prepared to face "blowback" from people who disagree with his decision.

"It is what it is, at the end of the day, I don't pay no mind to it. I'm going to do what I do that's going to bring light to my community. ... I will continue to use my platform to keep on speaking up."

At this point I'd imagine his "protest" has more to do with the league telling him what he can or can't do versus any social commentary.

Social consciousness is wonderful if done correctly. The audience he seems to thrive for would probably respond better to a different approach. He is in country music mecca & this not the right way to go

Looks like he's trying to arrange awareness in a multitude of ways.

That's good. Does his fist or belligerence tell me how or make me want to donate?

Just don't televise the anthem this year. Or, when the anthem is playing keep the camera focused on the stadium flag.

I just want them to cast Jurrell as the lead in 'Roseanne' and let him use that show as his social platform. Everybody wins!

That would work if there weren't 80k ish fans in the stadium that payed a couple hundred dollars to view their team play football. These assholes need to leave their personal life at home just like everyone else.

Incremental fines, punishment with eventual dismissal from the league without compensation.

Do they not play the game anymore if a player protests? This a new thing for 2018?
