Michael Bennett on Why He Sat During National Anthem"I don't love oppression

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch remained seated during the national anthem prior to the team's 20-10 loss to the Cardinals in their preseason opener.

USA Today photographer Mark Rebilas captured the image of Lynch sitting behind the rest of his teammates ahead of their contest against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona on Saturday.

Another season, another controversy surrounding the national anthem.

Coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke to him about the issue after the game. His locker was cleared by the time media was granted access to the locker room, multiple reporters said. "I said, 'So you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem. You do your thing". "And I mean, if you're really not racist, then you're going to see what he's done, what he's doing, [not] as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have".

Disappointing US inflation and jobs data have not helped the dollar. "Risk aversion is still very much a concern for markets". The remarks, following North Korea's earlier revelation of a plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S.

Carson Palmer threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Brittan Golden to cap his brief preseason debut, while Oakland quarterback Derek Carr watched the game from the sideline.

Lynch didn't play in the game at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Unlike Kaepernick, who struggled to regain his Super Bowl form of 2012 from 2013-2016 and is out of the league, Lynch is a Pro Bowl-caliber commodity.

He would like to have played more than one series. Fans will get a chance to see if their Raiders can return to the success they had last season, before an injury to quarterback to Derek Carr derailed their playoff hopes earlier than expected. "I've got to wait until next week".
