List of NFL players protesting released, as photos pour in of empty seats galore


The 11th Sunday of the NFL season saw continued protests among players, and photos posted on social media reflect the public’s disgust, as empty seats abound.

At least five players have continued their protest during the national anthem performance before the games on Sunday, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Miami Dolphins players Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas all got down on their knee during the national anthem, before their game against Tampa Bay.

Olivier Vernon, defensive lineman for the NY Giants, also took a knee, continuing his season-long protest.

Marcus Peters, of the Kansas City Chiefs, refused to come out of the tunnel until the “Star Spangled Banner” was over. In previous games, he had protested on the sideline.

Below is a sampling of stadium photos posted on Twitter Sunday, confirming that many former NFL fans are simply no longer showing up for the games.
