Oakland Raiders sit star players in preseason loss to Arizona Cardinals

Oakland Raiders sit star players in preseason loss to Arizona Cardinals

Raiders Coach Jack Del Rio doesn't approve of Lynch's actions, but doesn't plan to take any action to stop him.

"I'd rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered", Lynch said.

Whether you agree with the protesting that's been done by NFL players across the league or you don't, Lynch taking a seat during the national anthem is a note-worthy matter.

"I talked to Marshawn to make sure we're on the same page", Del Rio said after a 20-10 loss to the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium. Lynch did not speak to the media Saturday night, but the move appears to be a reaction to Saturday's violent white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Lynch was gone from the locker room by the time reporters arrived. Sitting on the bench during the preseason, as opposed to kneeling, is also how Colin Kaepernick began his anthem protest previous year. "It's not a form of anything other than me being myself, '" Del Rio said. I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem, but I'm going to respect you as a man.

"With what's going on, I'd rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands up and get murdered", Lynch told ESPN past year.

"Obviously, we all support Marshawn because he's part of our team, but I think that is more of a personal thing", Manuel said. Raiders linebackers Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith joined in early past year, by standing through the anthem with a raised fist before a game at Tennessee.

Lynch made news, however, by sitting on a cooler on the sideline during the singing of the national anthem.

"It was my decision", Del Rio said.
