CB Richard Sherman said the Seahawks met for several hours and considered different proposals before deciding to remain in the locker room for the national anthem: "This is a world-changing, life-changing event. Once in a lifetime. You have to capture a moment like that, and the moment doesn't affect everyone the same. Some people, it's a moment that has no effect, has little effect. It won't move their needle either way, which is fine, but they sympathize with their teammates so they do want to do something. Going out there and sitting down during the national anthem for some guys was unacceptable, and that's fine. That's fine. We made that decision with that in mind. For some guys, there was a suggestion that we kneel with the flag half-staff because that symbolizes that there's an issue going on in our country, and there is, obviously. So, there were a ton of things thrown around but I think we came to a good decision and we stand by it."
