According to a statement released by the Ravens, they now realize that the anti-American kneeling might be a problem for them.

The Hill:

“We have responded to your concerns about the protest by re-doubling the efforts of both the organization and our players to make the Baltimore area a better community,” he wrote. “When the Ravens win, we can bring families and the community together. We’ve done that before, and we can do it again.”

The Ravens are having a successful regular season, and will head to the playoffs if they win their final two games.

“In light of recent events, we are also reminded that winning alone is not always enough to make the Ravens the unifying force we want to be,” Cass wrote.

“We don’t take your support for granted, and we know that we must continue to earn your respect and investment in us.”

I wonder who could’ve seen this coming. When you have your players kneeling overseas and not apologizing for it your fan base might get a little bit ticked off. The NFL players thought they had the American people wrapped around their finger but they are now getting a hard dose of reality.
