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."

Incremental fines, punishment with eventual dismissal from the league without compensation.
I did a bad job there of simply saying they shouldn’t show the “protesters” on tv while they are kneeling.

It's not HIS PLATFORM, its the America platform. America was built on the platform of peaceful protest. People always seem to want Freedom of Expression for things they approve of but not for things they don't.

Yep.

The NFL is losing out with the younger generations to watching video game competition.

Now they are going to continue to piss off us old farts.

It is eating itself with this crap.

I think that the NFL should allow fans to bring bags of tomatoes into the stadium. If someone kneels during the anthem, the fans can pelt him with tomatoes to express their outrage. That would be a funny sight to see. LOL. Marcus Peters takes a knee and gets covered in tomatoes. I would laugh my ass off.

The NBA which is at least 80% black, has had a rule in place since the 1980's requiring that players and coaches stand for the National Anthem.

There are countless other avenues for NFL players to express their support for social justice causes... why mess with the National Anthem?

You know that the teams only started doing that because it was a paid sponsorship by the military for recruiting purposes, right?

Wonder what kind of backlash the NFL was getting. Are they worried about the players walking away or were there enough fans that didn’t like when the league decided to take a political stand. It didn’t sound like I was the first person the ticket office heard a complaint from when I cancelled my season tickets.

You cancelled your season tickets over a few players kneeling?

No, I cancelled my season tickets when the Chiefs made a political stand by giving Peters away for peanuts.
