Former Ravens safety James Ihedigbo has a solid solution to one fan’s reaction to player protests. Fans have reacted in a number of ways to NFL teams’ responses to President Donald Trump and ensuing national anthem protests this weekend. One Baltimore Ravens fan in particular did not support Baltimore players’ decision to kneel this weekend, taking to Twitter to announce he will sell his season tickets if protests continue.
