Marshawn Lynch has sat for the national anthem during every game this season.
So when the Raiders running back stood before Sunday’s game, he made quite a fuss. Why?
It wasn’t “The Star-Spangled Banner” Lynch stood for.
Never miss a local story.
Before the Raiders took on the New England Patriots in Mexico City, Lynch remained seated while the American anthem played, but stood for Mexico’s song, according to a tweet from The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin.
Since Lynch doesn’t like speaking to the media, it’s unlikely he’ll say why he chose to stand for the Mexican anthem.
