The comments made by President Donald Trump about national anthem protests did not sit well with many inside the NFL circles.
On Sunday, numerous teams performed silent protests during the national anthem as a show of solidarity and support.
Following the Redskins' 27-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday Night Football, cornerback Josh Norman had a lot on his mind as it pertains to the president.
"We had to do it, because, you know, the tyranny we face behind POTUS, and it's sad that we have to go through stuff like this. But at the end of the day, we unite as one. Nobody is going to divide us."
Following the game, Norman did not mince words.
"Nah man. When you mess with one brother, you mess with them all," an impassioned Norman said following the win.
"We did it for unity. We wanted it to stand for something. I'm just going to tell you right now. This man is not welcomed in Washington, D.C. He's not. I hope he's not around when I see him. He's not welcomed. I can say that to your face. He is not welcomed here. You picked on the wrong people. I respect the position, I really do. But when it gets to this point, he's taking on 1,800 men. These are men, grown men, they have families. We have the ability to strike the young of the nation. The young people. So how we act is how they are gonna act. So we're doing everything for them. And again, I respect the office. I respect the troops. My family fought in the war. But like I said before, this is not about the flag. It's not. It's not about anything like that. This is about what we are being faced with right now. It's being teared down from within the White House. That can't happen. That's an attack against you as a man. If you don't stand for something, like I said, you fall. And I'll put myself out there. I'm standing. It's disrespectful. It's appalling."
Norman was not the only athlete to speak out against the President and he won't be the last.
But very few have delivered a message as strong as as passionate as his.
