Denver Broncos announce they will stand for the anthem as a team

Broncos will stand during anthem starting Sunday

This week, the leadership on the team got together to decide on a plan of action moving forward, and this is what they came up with.

Players from many teams, including the Broncos, have said that their protests this past weekend were not about the American flag or the military or the national anthem, but a show of disapproval of Trump's comments and inequalities in the United States.

Outside linebacker Von Miller, who helped lead the team's demonstrations last week, said after that game that Trump "assaulted" their freedom of speech, and that "we had to do something". "We just talked about it. We just felt the best way, that was the best direction to go". "That's where the confusion kind of comes from, especially from the fans, we wanted to set the record straight, exactly the reasons why and just move forward".

"Starting Sunday, we will be standing together".


"He is really week-to-week", coach Vance Joseph said after practice Friday. ". I'm proud of the guys".

Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said the decision was made by the team's leaders after they held a vote on the matter. "It's pretty standard in our locker room".

Broncos executive vice president of football operations and general manager John Elway has also expressed his feelings about standing for the fag, but also said he understood the decisions the players made. "We all went with it, so everybody stands". Getting back to football and showing unity was important, but everybody has the right to have a voice in this country. "So I think changing the platform in the future - I'm not sure what it is now - but changing it in the future will help us make positive change".

"You have to get out there and do it", Joseph said.
