The NFL London series kicks off today

Standing with the players puts Khan in apparent opposition to Trump, who this weekend attacked NFL players for failing to show enough respect for the national anthem.

Ahead of the 1 p.m. ET games, players from several teams, including the Cleveland Browns, the Denver Broncos and the Miami Dolphins, also took knees during the anthem.

President Donald Trump renewed his criticism Sunday of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem, slamming the league's ratings and saying players should be fired or suspended for such protests. A large group of Browns players - who have protested the anthem since the beginning of the preseason - continued their protest today.

But Sunday saw a different type of football, and a different type of protest, at the famed stadium.

Earlier in the morning the president had continued his tirade against the National Football League on Twitter commenting on attendances and ratings being "WAY DOWN", but 84,592 were at Wembley, a new record since games were first hosted in England a decade ago.

Mr. Trump's comments demanding that NFL owners fire players who protested during the National Anthem met derision from all corners of the NFL this week.

"And I've said this many times, we both agree, like, what he did, I'm 100 percent for racial justice, 100 percent", Lewis said during a July appearance on Fox Sports' Skip and Shannon: Undisputed. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our contry.

But when it came time to play the British national anthem, the players happily rose to their feet. "That's democracy in its highest form".

Trump said the Golden State Warriors were no longer invited to the White House after their superstar Curry, 29, said he did not want to attend "to show that we won't stand for the things (the president) has said".

That wasn't the end of Trump's freakish attack on professional athletes, however.

The response to Trump's comments- which were notably made between threats to North Korea, who has stated they would use weapons of mass destruction against the mainland USA, and silence about the humanitarian crisis happening in Puerto Rico- was largely negative.

That, combined with Trump attacking National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry on Twitter on Saturday, lead to condemnation of Trump on social media, including from National Basketball Association star LeBron James.

"The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture", Goodman said.
