Tim Brown Thinks Marshawn Lynch’s National Anthem Protest is ‘Negativity’

Former NFL star, Tim Brown, is against Marshawn Lynch’s national anthem protest.

Brown, who is one of the greatest players in franchise history, told TMZ Sports, “Why man? Why bring this to yourself? He has the perfect thing going on in Oakland. Why bring negativity to this incredible positive situation? … I just don’t get it.”

Whoa.

The Oakland Raiders star running back took a seat during the national anthem at a pre-season game in Arizona over the weekend, and as a result, Brown shared his opinion.

“I understand these guys man, they’re trying to make statements and they’re trying to be a part of this world but football is where people go to get away from that stuff.”

Brown told the outlet that while he’s confident that Lynch’s cause would be supported outside of the stadium, he feels the political and social statements do not belong at work.

Watch Brown’s remarks below.
