Trump calls on National Football League to suspend Marshawn Lynch

Trump calls on National Football League to suspend Marshawn Lynch

"Was going on big dog I know we got a lot that needs to be talk about how about we set up a (sit) down with you, me, @MoneyLynch and more and we talk about some (stuff)", Peters said in a reply to Trump's tweet about Lynch, via the Kansas City Star.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat on the bench during the playing of the US national anthem and stood for the Mexican national anthem prior to Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. However, running back's mom sent one right back to the President of the United States. Lynch came out of retirement this season and is yet to stand for the anthem, although he has not said why.

Trump tweeted on Monday morning that Lynch "sat down to boos", and showed "great disrespect".

Mayfield quickly pulled his hand away, clapped a couple of times and set about burnishing his Heisman Trophy candidacy. The 9-0 Hurricanes are coming off their biggest win of the season, a 41-8 beat down against Notre Dame last week.


Lynch and other National Football League players have taken a knee or sat during the anthem as a way to protest police brutality and racial inequality in the U.S. Trump has called their actions disrespectful to the country and in the past has said protesting players should be fired.

This came after the Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported during the Raiders-Patriots game in Mexico City that Lynch stood for the Mexican national anthem, but sat for the USA anthem. Lynch did stand for the first few bars of the American anthem, and while he did stand for the Mexican song, he was not completely at attention. The Raiders also played here a year ago against Houston in front of an enthusiastic crowd of 76,473 people.

According to Spotrac, Lynch just signed a 2 year, $9 million contract with the Oakland Raiders, including a $2,350,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $4,500,000.

Vanuatu's National Disaster Management Office advised people in southern provinces to evacuate coastal areas for higher ground. New Zealand officials say there is no tsunami threat to the country following a 7.3-magnitude quake near New Caledonia.


The Raiders fell to 4-6 after losing to the Patriots in Mexico City, an underwhelming record for a team who had success last season and believed adding Lynch and others would help them improve.

For 2017, Lynch will earn a base salary of $1,350,000, a roster bonus of $1,125,000 and a workout bonus of $150,000, while carrying a cap hit of $2,625,000 and a dead cap value of $2,500,000.
