Broncos will stand during anthem starting Sunday

The Denver Broncos issued a statement on Twitter Thursday announcing the team's plans to stand together for the playing of the national anthem beginning with Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Almost three dozen members of the Broncos knelt during the anthem on Sunday, according to the Denver Post.

The Broncos were one of many NFL teams to take a knee during the national anthem in Week 3 as a response to President Donald Trump's remarks at a rally on September 22.

The statement comes a few days after Broncos executive John Elway - who led the team to a Superbowl victory as its quarterback in 1997 - said he believes in standing for the anthem.

In their message on Twitter they explained that last week, the Denver Broncos joined the National Football League in "a powerful display of unity". "As controversial as it appeared, we needed to show our collective strength and resolve", the Broncos said. Perhaps we're getting closer to the anthem not being the biggest story of this week's football games. "We just wanted to state what happened, where our minds were", Miller said.

"Had a meeting [Wednesday] after practice. they wanted a statement of what they were doing", Joseph said.

Joseph added that it is important for all involved to get into the community to "make true change". So the Broncos turned to a good ol' vote to make their decision, the goal being to come up with a final decision for everyone. "With the environment that we're in right now, no one's going to make any change".

"We have not forced these guys to stand.it's been their right to have peaceful protest", Joseph said.
