McNair made the "inmates" statement after other owners at the October 18 meeting talked of business concerns related to the anthem protests, a day after several owners and players had met to discuss social reform.
The NFL has not commented on McNair's latest remarks. For most players, even when once we apologize they still take what we said and judge us by it.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins missed Friday's practice despite not appearing on the injury report or having any visible limitations recently. "We put our bodies and minds on the line every time we step on that field, and to use an analogy of inmates in prison, that's disrespectful". He told Josina Anderson of ESPN that 65-70% of their team would be kneeling and they decided not to remove their decals.
"I appreciate when people like that show who they really are", Sherman said.
As the owners, ever conscious of their wallets and the fact many fans prefer the players to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner", were conversing with the players, McNair said, "We can't have the inmates running the prison". The new issue of ESPN magazine out November 13, takes readers inside the NFL's recent meetings in NY following the firestorm of controversy that erupted after President Donald Trump's scathing comments about the protest against racial injustice and police brutality spearheaded by Colin Kaepernick.
According to the article, McNair's comments were made on October 18, just one day after the owners and players met to discuss social reform. More than half of them came from just two teams, the San Francisco 49ers and Seahawks.
That sparked a furious backlash among National Football League players, who disagreed that the demonstrations are disrespectful to the flag and the United States military.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, several Texans players have considered walking out in response to McNair's statement and had to be persuaded to stay.
"First they (demonstrators) were sons of bitches and now inmates?" "I know some inmates". Whatever it is, if I give a figure of speech in 2017, I'm going to get ridiculed by any group that's formed to protect one's group.

The league and the players union also could negotiate a deal and propose that Gurriel accept it, foregoing the need for an appeal. Plus, I know in Japan that offends them. "I would particularly like to apologise to Yu Darvish , a pitcher I admire and respect".
It was a result of this action on the part of Zeenat that the security forces were bound to agree that Hamid was in their custody. She had filed an application with the Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell on behalf of Fauzia Ansari , Hamid's mother.
Should Trump walk away from the deal, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that Iran would "shred" it. Reinstating old nuclear sanctions on Iran for non-nuclear reasons, however, is a violation of the agreement.
