The Baltimore Ravens attributed a slight dip in attendance to players’ kneeling during the national anthem in a letter to season-ticket holders and sponsors, signed by team president Dick Cass. According to ESPN, the language in the letter reads, “There are a number of reasons for the no-shows, but surely the one-time protest in London has been a factor.” During a September 24 game in London, the same weekend that Trump referred to a kneeling player as a “son of a bitch,” more than a dozen Ravens took a knee. Cass also met with and spoke to fans who were upset about the kneeling. In the letter, Cass references unity and states, “we know that we must continue to earn your respect and investment in us.”
