The game between the Raiders and the Redskins is more like a scandal, and it’s filling headlines across the country. If by any chance you haven’t noticed it, the Oakland Raiders is the only lineup made up of African-Americans. The game between the Raiders and Washington’s Redskins was the thing we’ve been looking forward to watch, but the offensive line sat out the national anthem. But, not everyone was eager to dishonor The Star-Spangled Banner.
We all saw Quarterback Derek Carr standing for the anthem, but the offensive line protested the national anthem.
“So Derek Carr, who is never sacked – was sacked four times by the Redskins, back to back on the second offensive series of the Raiders. The first series he threw almost immediately was intercepted, so that series was over before it began. Also, three times, the extremely dependable, never-does-this center – the guy who snaps the ball to the quarterback – snapped it before Carr was ready … three times. He ‘hiked’ it – as the kids say – into Carr’s knees before he was supposed to,” said hosts at Armstrong & Getty.
There is a bold assumption here, and it suggests that the Oakland Raiders threw the game against their opponents as an act of demonstration to Carr.
Many believe that Carr’s fellow players would rather have him stand alone on the field. Well, the player should’ve seen this coming, as he preferred to stand alone for the National Anthem.
Hosts agreed that games can’t go well if you have a white quarterback and a black offensive line. Americans call this a “paranoia,” and it seems like fans across the country will soon switch teams. Have you ever seen anything like this before? We haven’t.
“So is this a one-time punishment? Have they gotten together and talked to each other? Or are the black guys in the team not going to block for the white guys?” hosts said. They made a good point here.
