#GoldenStateWarriors decide to not insult their fans, drive away paying customers

No one took a knee.

The Warriors have been outspoken in their support of NFL players following Colin Kaepernick’s lead and taking knee during the national anthem to protest racial inequality in America and police brutality against people of color and in their opposition to President Donald Trump, who called any NFL player who took a knee a “son of a bitch” in a speech last week.

On Saturday, in their preseason opener at Oracle Arena, no Warriors player took a knee. After watching the angry fan reaction against the NFL, no once should be surprised by this. Keeping paying customers in the house is a big deal for the players and the front office.
