Marshawn Lynch sits for national anthem prior to preseason game against Cardinals

Another season, another controversy surrounding the national anthem.

Marshawn Lynch sits during the National Anthem before tonight's Raiders/Cardinals pre-season game.

Lynch has yet to see live National Football League game action since the 2015 season and was just one of a litany of projected Raiders starters who were held out of Saturday's 20-10 Week 1 preseason loss. But he did explain himself privately to Raiders coach Jack Del Rio - who then gave a misleading account of Lynch's past actions to reporters.

North Korea spat rattles Wall Street
South Korea's fell 1.7 percent to its lowest since May 24, but its losses for the week are a relatively modest 3.2 percent. Investors instead turned to safe-haven assets such as gold, pushing it to a two-month high, and the Japanese yen rose.


Photos show Lynch, who suited up but did not play, sitting on a cooler while holding a banana during the anthem.

"He said, 'This is something I have done for 11 years. You do your thing.' So it's a non-issue for me". "It's not a form of anything other than me being myself, '" Del Rio 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.

The carbon filter-processing factory has been operating on agricultural land inside an oil palm estate for more than 10 years. It says the application should be made in Penang as the remand order against the state Exco member was issued in the state.


Lynch told Del Rio he has been sitting forever.

The issue was polarizing when Kaepernick protested previous year and was joined by several players across the country.

"On Marshawn, talked to Marshawn trying to make sure we're on the same page", Del Rio said.

But observers ask is the technology actually being used as a political and military tool to secure its territorial ambitions. Its sweeping claims overlap with Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei - all ASEAN members - as well as Taiwan.


Lynch rarely talks to the media but has voiced his support for quarterback Colin Kaepernick's season-long decision to kneel during the anthem to draw attention to what he saw as incidents of police brutality against people of color.
