Protest of the Day: St. Louis Rams Players Raise Arms in Solidarity for Ferguson
A few players on the St. Louis Rams decided to hold a little protest of their own on Sunday, prior to their game against the Oakland Raiders, by entering the field with their arms up to show support for the protesters in Ferguson.
Tavon Austin, Kenny Britt, Stedman Bailey, Jared Cook and Chris Givens all participated in the stunt before pregame introductions, with the coach denying any advance knowledge of it.
The St. Louis Police Officers Association is not amused. They are asking the NFL to issue an apology calling it "tasteless, offensive and inflammatory."
But the Rams are standing by their actions.
"I just think there has be to a change," said Cook. "There has to be change that starts with the people that are most influential around the world."
