Bruce Maxwell Takes a Knee and MLB Joins the Anthem Controversy

RHP Chris Archer agrees with the message and how Oakland C Bruce Maxwell handled presenting his view Saturday in becoming the first major-league player to kneel during the national anthem. "I'm just enjoying it and embracing it as much as I can, just trying to help the ballclub win games". Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel during the national anthem.

Mozeliak wrapped-up his comments by saying, "I think to try to take a stance and say we just won't have it or we won;t stand for it is probably a decision that you'll end up regretting".

In the rare cases they are, it's head-turning.

Maxwell, who was born in Germany while his father served in the Army over there, said he will continue to kneel for the anthem. It's brief - you might want to listen before presuming to know what his protest means to him. "He's a guy from a military family, a guy who obviously has a strong respect for this country". I think people should have fun on the field and celebrate how they want to celebrate and express their political beliefs if that's what they want to do.
