HONOLULU -

    NFL players are responding to President Trump's attack on those who kneel in protest during the National Anthem.
    Trump is demanding players who protest be fired or suspended appearing to urge fans to boycott games until those protests stop. 
    All across the country, the players of the NFL linked arms, or took a knee in protest of racial injustice.
    What started with Colin Kaepernick taking a knee, has now broadened as a response to Trump's comment's to boycott players. 
    In Nashville, the National Anthem blared over a near empty field while the Titans and the Seahawks stayed in their locker rooms.
    All but one of the Steelers--Alejandro Villanueva, an army veteran-- were absent during the anthem.
