Former NFL coach Jerry Glanville told ESPN on Thursday that anthem protests would not have happened while he was a coach, adding, "I don't blame the players. I blame the gutless league for not taking a stand immediately, and saying, ‘You're going to do this or we're not going to be together.' What's happened in the league, it reminds me of somebody that will never make a decision. ‘Before I make a decision, I better see if it's approved.' Make the decision and move on. The commissioner -- they got things in Kentucky where Jesse James robbed a bank. The commissioner has been robbing the league. Make a dang decision. Be the commissioner and move on."
