VIDEO: Most of NFL’s Houston Texans Kneel During Anthem After Owner’s INMATE Remarks

The majority of the Houston Texans football team took a knee before their game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday in response to a controversial remark the team’s owner made earlier this month.




Texans owner Bob McNair attended an owners’ meeting this month in New York on Friday and, according to ESPN The Magazine, said during a discussion about players’ negotiating over their right to protests: “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.” McNair said he regretted the comment but was “Not referring to our players,” The Associated Press reported.

McNair did not meet with the players on Friday after the comment but instead waited until Saturday morning to apologize personally – which reportedly bothered some of the team’s players.

Players also remained unconvinced by the apology, according to the AP, and they told numerous media outlets that they had met to discuss how to react moving forward.
