While NFL players are taking a knee, Erich Nikischer is leaving the arena. Nikischer found himself so enraged by several Buffalo Bills kneeling during the national anthem on Sunday that he quit his job of almost 30 years at the team’s home stadium, New Era Field. Nikischer said he has no issue with players protesting prior to the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner, but could not handle the kneeling during the song.
Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes wasn’t happy about Jim Kelley’s public criticism of the team’s players who knelt during the national anthem Sunday. Indeed, Hughes criticized Kelly for criticizing the Bills. “I was very disappointed in him,” Hughes said, via quotes distributed by the team.
