Houston Texans owner Bob McNair made a controversial statement regarding the NFL national anthem protest saying, "we can't let the prisoners run the prison." Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins reportedly walked out of practice due to the state, but should the team take it a step further and not play? Sitting out would make a strong statement against McNair for his callous words. But the players are paid to play football, and shouldn’t be oversensitive. What do you think? 🏈

Seth Wickersham and Don Van Natta Jr. chronicled what Bob McNair said at a meeting between owners, team executives and commissioner Roger Goodell:

McNair, a multimillion-dollar Trump campaign contributor, spoke next, echoing many of the same business concerns. "We can't have the inmates running the prison," McNair said.

McNair later apologized for the statement, but the damage is already done. Should the Texans sit out a game to protest McNair?

What Bob McNair said is not anything new. This racist view of NFL players has been accepted by the owners and a lot of fans. The players need to stand up for themselves, and let McNair know that comparing players to prisoners is unacceptable. The Texans need to send a message of their own and sit out a game in protest.

Apparently, clichés are offensive now. Bob McNair was using an expression that has been used for a really long time. There is no racial component that needs to be taken from it. People are trying to cause problems where there are none. Houston Texans players are a lot of money to play a game, and entertain fans. Sitting out a game for something so trivial would be a mistake.
