Seahawks Players Harassed Over Anthem Protest 'Get Off Your F**king Knees'

Seahawks Players Harassed Over Anthem Protest 'Get Off Your F**king Knees'

The players, Neiko Thorpe and Mike Tyson, unfortunately, ended up getting harassed by a random woman on the road.

Two Seattle Seahawks players were subjected to an expletive-filled verbal assault by a woman Monday outside the Seahawks practice facility.

"Stand up and be a man", the woman says. All I care about is the fact that my tax dollars pay for you to play, and go [expletive] play. "Get off your little f--g knees and not represent the [country] that made you what you are?"

After being berated by the lady, one of the players asked for her name, but she was in no mood to respond. Josh is now a member of the FWAA and USBWA.

Bennett, one of the more outspoken National Football League players, was recently traded to the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

"You done yet?" one of the players asks.


Thorpe filmed the entire incident as the woman yelled at him from her truck.

The video appears to have started midway through the conversation, picking up right where the woman is telling them that they should "stand up and be men". The NFL and teams get their money from season-ticket holders, other paying customers, broadcast contracts and sponsors, said Bleacher Report.

The most ironic part of the conversation is that Tyson and Thorpe weren't among the players who took a knee during the anthem neither this past season nor in 2016.

Tyson, a sixth-round pick in the 2017 draft, didn't play a game during his rookie season.

According to The Bleacher Report, during an NFL Network's Up to the Minute segment, sports analyst Ian Rapoport said that "it's pretty clear that Bennet's time with the Seahawks is up".
