Sheriff Gahler went on to call the NFL an “embarrassment and said “people wonder why I am on strike.”
Many of the Ravens players as well as players on the Jaguars kneeled during the United States anthem, but stood for “God Save The Queen,” the British national anthem. Most of those who didn’t kneel locked arms in solidarity, following comments by President Donald Trump urging fans to walk out of games if they saw players kneel during the anthem.READ MORE: 'Glad We Lived': Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Says He Has PTSD After He And His Family Were Robbed At Gunpoint In LA In February
