It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself,’” Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said. “I said, ‘So you understand how I feel. I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I’m going to respect you as a man. You do your thing, and we’ll do ours.’ So that’s a non-issue for me.” NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines last NFL season when he took a knee during the National Anthem.

Hundreds Protest The Blacklisting Of Colin Kaepernick In Front Of NFL Headquarters!

Is the NFL blacklisting Colin Kaepernick?? That's what many believe, and they're willing to put their money where their mouths are — by boycotting this football season! Over the past few weeks, after it became clear that no team was going to sign the quarterback, who has been out of his San Francisco 49ers contract for five [...] Is the NFL blacklisting Colin Kaepernick?? That's what many believe, and they're willing to put their money where their mouths are -- by boycotting this football season! Over the past few weeks, after it became clear that no team was going to sign the quarterback, who has been out of his San Francisco 49ers contract for five months, more and more have supported Kaepernick with their lack of dollars. Related: Colin Is NOT Here For Michael Vick's Comments About His Hair According to many experts, though Colin isn't the sure thing he was four years ago, it's not his lack of ability that's keeping him off the field but the controversy surrounding him. Kaepernick famously took a knee during the National Anthem in protest of police brutality toward black men, a cause for which many woke NFL fans have his back. And by that we mean they literally have his number on their backs. Derrick Johnson of the NAACP sent a letter requesting a meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, saying: "No player should be victimized and discriminated against because of his exercise of free speech — to do so is in violation of his rights under the Constitution and the N.F.L.'s own regulations." Goodell has denied that the 32 teams are banning Kaepernick or that the league itself has banned him. But that hasn't deterred angry fans. Over 170,000 have signed a Change.org petition to boycott the NFL as long as he remains unemployed. And many showed up at a protest in front of NFL Headquarters on Wednesday: The @NFL @nflcommish better pay attention cuz the people are showing up!!!!!! #NoKaepernickNoNFL #ImWithKap pic.twitter.com/MhDbEsA8hx — Justice League NYC (@NYjusticeleague) August 23, 2017 The @womensmarch #ResistanceRevivalChorus !!!

Whether it's working with Wim Wenders in Paris, Texas or delivering a moving cameo in David Lynch's The Straight Story, Stanton's presence is undeniable. He's front and center with actor John Carroll Lynch's [...] In a career that started back in the 1950s, 91-year-old Harry Dean Stanton is considered one of cinema’s finest character actors. Whether it’s working with Wim Wenders in Paris, Texas or delivering a moving cameo in David Lynch’s The Straight Story, Stanton’s presence is undeniable. He’s front and center with actor John Carroll Lynch’s feature directing debut Lucky as he plays an elderly man who’s essentially outlived most of his friends. Living off the grid in a desert town, Lucky (Dean Stanton) is up for conversation for any person who comes his way (David Lynch also stars in the feature). The movie received rounds of praise at this year’s SXSW Festival, and considering John Carroll Lynch (Zodiac, Fargo) is also an excellent character actor, their bond is probably one of the film’s strengths. Check out the trailer below and feel free to comment below! Lucky, co-starring Ron Livingston and Tom Skerritt, hits theaters September 29.
