MINNEAPOLIS, Min. (CBS 58) -- The Green Bay Packers decided as a team to remain in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem and "Life Every Voice And Sing" during Sunday's game, Sept. 13.
President and CEO Mark Murphy said the team respects the national anthem and the United States flag, as well as the right to express ourselves.
"We decided as a team to remain in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem and 'Life Every Voice and Sing' so as to not distract from our message that we stand united for social justice and racial equality," Murphy said in a statement. "This is part of our continued call on our leaders to engage in meaningful dialogue that results in change. We feel it is important for all of us to participate in these difficult conversations with humility and be open to different perspectives."
