For the first time since 2016, the National Anthem controversy isn’t dominating the headlines across the entire NFL as players aren’t participating in the protest as much.
However, that doesn’t mean others in the stadium on Sundays’ aren’t using the anthem for protest.
Just ahead of today’s Jags-Cowboys game in Dallas, a fan stood on the base of the stands at AT&T Stadium with signs that urged fans in attendance to “vote attendance” and to ‘stop abortions.’

It’ll be interesting to see how people respond to this, especially the ones that were outraged at the Kaepernick protest.
