[Blind Gossip] While people are concerned about the controversy that is taking place on the field at NFL games, there is plenty of controversy in the locker room, too.
This white NFL player wanted to go out on the field during the National Anthem… but was pressured by his black teammates not to do so!
He was going to go out to the field during The National Anthem, but he was cornered by [some of his other teammates] and warned that if he did so, they would no longer respect him as a team leader and would make sure that he failed on the field.
Basically, any dissent or attention that he would steal away from the team’s decision would result in his being black balled.
