'We need some change': First MLB anthem protest sparks reaction

Bruce Maxwell, Athletics catcher, becomes first MLB player to kneel during national anthem

Here are those managers' takes...

Maxwell informed A's manager Bob Melvin and general manager David Forst of his intention to kneel before Saturday's game. I was fortunate in that respect. You talk about diverse backgrounds. "When [Colin] Kaepernick was doing it last year, I supported Kaepernick doing that". Not a single editorial was penned in response, which suggests that the problem isn't that athletes are using the anthem to send a message, but that they're using the anthem to send a message that's more threatening than "tee hee".

His California-based team quickly tweeted its support for Maxwell's move.

"I don't want to go", Curry said. However, his teammates' thoughts on the matter prevent him from actually doing it. "I've had plenty of family members, including my father, that have bled for this country, that continue to serve for this country". "He's going to come in, get some treatment on the off day, but I probably won't play him today". The sport doesn't have to progress to be enjoyed, even as it unquestionably does. "It bothers me, and it hits home for me because that's where I'm from". Obviously, sports brings a lot of things to the forefront of people. I'm proud to have the rights we have. For some, that glass is brimming past overfull; for others, it's only damp - and systemically so. "We respect [our players'] demonstration and support them 100 percent", he said. "Anyone who knows Bruce or his parents is well aware that the Maxwells' love and appreciation for our country is indisputable", Sosnick told the Chronicle. These are business gatherings, after all, having more to do with money and fandom than civics. "I'm kneeling for the people who don't have a voice". I think that's what we're seeing now. But in the middle of today's whirlwind battle of words and tweets between the President of the United States and athletes of all colors and sports, Maxwell decided to take a stand.

And 3 - I loves me some Bruce Maxwell, my new favorite Athletic.

"That's a total disrespect of everything that we stand for", Trump said of kneeling through the anthem. If I may paraphrase, this is really "why must you make me think, or be uncomfortable?"

Almost immediately after the protest, the A's organization made a bold move of their own. The right-hander hasn't pitched since he was scratched from his scheduled start on Sept. 13 because of arm fatigue. Watching Trump's rally play out in his hometown of Huntsville, Ala. on Friday further persuaded Maxwell to finally do so.
