Donald Trump Furious After More NFL Players Take a Knee

8/10/2018 5:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump is pissed off at two Miami Dolphins receivers who continued the "take a knee" demonstration into the 2018 NFL season ... and now he's calling for them to be suspended. 

Both Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson took a knee during the national anthem at the Miami Dolphins pre-season opener versus the Tampa Bay Bucs on Thursday. Other players raised their fists.

Enter Trump ... who tweeted first thing Friday morning -- calling for swift action against the players.

"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem," Trump said.

"Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their 'outrage' at something that most of them are unable to define."

"They make a fortune doing what they love. Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest."

"Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!"

On the other hand, the players were praised by Colin Kaepernick -- who started the demonstration. He offered the following message to the players -- "Stay strong brothers."

Trump hated it ... but, Colin Kaepernick had nothing but love for Kenny Stills and other NFL players who demonstrated during the national anthem on Thursday night. 

Stills -- along with his Miami Dolphins teammate, Albert Wilson -- took a knee before their preseason game against the Bucs on Thursday night. Kaep was watching and approved.  

"My brother [Kenny Stills] continued his protest of systemic oppression tonight by taking a knee," Kaep wrote. 

"Albert Wilson joined him in protest. Stay strong brothers!"

Kaep added this note about Stills -- "[He] was awarded the Miami Dolphins’ community service awards the last two years. He participates in a number of youth organizations and was a team captain last year."

As we reported, Donald Trump hated the protest -- and railed against the players on Twitter, calling the league to suspend them. 

Danny Amendola Shades Belichick ... He Was Like A Principal

Breaking News

Seems Danny Amendola hated playing for Bill Belichick ... 'cause he called the Patriots coach a "principal" with a "principal's office" -- and even insinuated he didn't want to play hard for him.

It all went down on the Barstool Sports' "Comeback SZN" Podcast ... when the Dolphins wideout was trying to compare his new coach, Adam Gase, to B.B. -- and he couldn't find enough differences.

"It's almost like coach Gase is one of the guys, one of the boys," Amendola says.

"And you want to fight hard for your boys. Back in New England, it's almost like you got a principal and a principal's office and sh*t like that."

Amendola's railing against Belichick -- a coach he played under for five seasons -- didn't stop there.

"[Gase] is our head coach, but he's also our boy. So, it's cool. It's refreshing to have that kind of relationship with a coach, something I haven't had in a long time."

FYI ... the Dolphins play the Pats twice next season, with the first matchup coming Sept. 30.

Can't wait.

Kristin Cavallari put Jay Cutler on the hot seat -- asking him straight-up ... now that you're not playing football, what exactly do you DO all day long?!

It's all part of their new E! reality show, "Very Cavallari" -- which follows KC as a working mom and Jay Cutler ... as a non-working mom. 

No, really ... Cutler even jokes about how his life revolves around picking up their kids from school and beating "all the other moms there."

At one point, Kristin turns to Jay and says, "Like honestly, what do you do all day?"

Kristin also lectures Jay about it's time for her career as a jewelry designer to get priority -- saying, "You have to realize how many sacrifices I've had to make over 8 football seasons that we've been together."

He's not "officially" retired ... but Kristin Cavallari says she's pretty convinced her husband Jay Cutler is finished in the NFL. 

"I think he's done," Kristin said on SiriusXM's "The Jenny McCarthy Show" ... "It's not official. But yeah."

Kristin says 34-year-old Jay is still trying to figure out his professional future and noted he has "a few offers on the table" ... but she didn't say if those offers were from NFL teams or media outlets looking for a broadcaster. 

Of course, Jay signed a 1-year deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2017 to take over after starting QB Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury. Cutler threw for 2,666 yards with 19 TDs and 14 interceptions ... not terrible.

Cavallari has said she supports Jay no matter what decision he makes -- but it's obvious she's ready for the QB to hang up his cleats already

In fact, she talks about how Jay has been working weekends as an NFL player for years and she's ready for him to spend ALL of his Sundays with their kids.

Miami Dolphins safety T.J. McDonald has big problems ... his probation has been revoked in his 2016 DUI case ... and now he could go to jail. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... McDonald was arrested in May 2016 after he crashed into a parked car and cops believed he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. He was initially charged with misdemeanor DUI. 

He later cut a deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to a lesser charge and in exchange he got 3 years probation and was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service, complete a 3-month alcohol program and attend Narcotics Anonymous. 

But the problem, according to court docs ... McDonald is wayyy behind on his community service and didn't complete his alcohol program, so the court revoked his probation.

NFL Protests Proposed $100M 'Bribe' Fails ... Players Keep Kneeling

12/3/2017 4:39 PM PST

The NFL tried buying their players off with nearly $100 million so they'd stop kneeling and protesting at games ... but apparently it didn't work.

The NFL recently proposed a deal in which they'd contribute $89 million over seven years to 2 organizations focused on African-American causes, as well as to the Players Coalition so they could use the money for whatever causes they wanted.

In exchange, the NFL wanted the National Anthem protests to end -- but the deal seems to have failed. Many players continued to kneel and demonstrate during this week's games.

The L.A. Chargers' left tackle Russel Okung raised his fist during the National Anthem Sunday, and the Oakland Raiders' Marshawn Lynch remained seated for the song. L.A. Rams player Robert Quinn raised his fist as well, and other players linked arms in solidarity.

At least 6 other players between Miami, New Orleans and San Francisco all took a knee after some of them publicly raised issues with the proposed deal from their bosses. 

Back to the drawing board.
