While the NFL continues to wrestle with how to deal with protests during the national anthem, there were no such apparent demonstrations during Thursday night's game, which the defending champion Eagles won 18-12.

The two-minute ad, which made its debut during the NFL opener, highlights superstar athletes LeBron James, Serena Williams and others, and touches on the controversy of NFL player protests during the national anthem.

"I think it's awesome they're stepping up and spreading awareness, " Wilson said. "I don't think it's appropriate what they did", "Fox & Friends Weekend" co-host, Pete Hegseth, reported. Trump, meanwhile, has seized upon the issue of protesting National Football League players on social media and during rallies in front of his supporters.

"If I was in the NFL I would be kneeling still", said another resident Peyton Warren. "That's a cultural influence, and they're understanding that our community - the African American community - moves the culture, moves the thread when it comes to apparel, and that's standing behind a community that has put Nike in the position that it's in right now". You will have the helmet on the ground and hand on the heart. But they're going to have to convince us that they're not proactively attacking law enforcement officers and our military. You don't have to kneel.

Since he was drafted by the Chiefs in 2015, Conley has been one of the most vocal players in the locker room about social issues.

"I think it's a disgrace", said Salisbury resident Randy Mosley.

The 90-second ad showed a variety of athletes, including the Lakers' LeBron James and tennis star Serena Williams, and it ended with the slogan: "It's only insane until you do it". "I honor the flag".

While Conley, the son of an Air Force veteran, hasn't knelt during the national anthem, he expressed support for those participating in the demonstrations previous year. "Those are things that really brighten people's day in a time that there are not many things to be happy about".
