Golden Tate tweets out special request to Detroit Lions fans

Detroit Lions president Rod Wood talked about Jim Caldwell's contract extension and the NFL-wide reaction to Donald Trump's criticism of National Football League player protests on September 24, 2017.

The eight kneeling Lions players included defensive linemen Cornelius Washington, A'Shawn Robinson, Akeem Spence; offensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter, linebackers Tahir Whitehead, Steve Longa and Jalen Reeves-Maybin; and running back Ameer Abdullah. But Detroit Lions fans have a reasonable gripe after officials overturned what would have been a game-winning touchdown over the Atlanta Falcons and then ran the remaining time in the game off the clock. And he wasn't kidding. Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Kahn was the first owner to stand with his arms linked with his players on Sunday morning before his team's 44-7 win against the Baltimore Ravens at Wembley Stadium in London. Tight end Eric Ebron alone stood behind the primary line of players.

Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem last season, citing a protest of racial injustices in the criminal justice system, including police shootings of unarmed black men. The Lions now rank No. 9 in the league in defense, as they've allowed just 289 yards per game so far this season.

Instead, at least 14 owners have issued statements condemning Trump's comments, none have supported him and many have joined their players in protest on the field. "He's fired. He's fired!'" Trump said at a rally in Alabama on Saturday. And it includes Ford as well as her daughters.
