Aaron Rodgers wants the fans to join linked arms for the National Anthem

Aaron Rodgers has a request to the fans of Green Bay. The quarterback is asking the fans to stand up linking their arms to represent unity as a group. All the fans linking arms in the stadium.  That would send a powerful message.  This could be the leader of players that brings the whole thing full circle.

In a statement released Tuesday night, the players said coaches and staff will join them with arms intertwined to represent a coming together of people who want “freedom, equality, tolerance, understanding and justice for those who have been unjustly treated, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly.”

“Those of us joining arms on Thursday will be different in so many ways, but one thing that binds us together is that we are all individuals who want to help make our society, our country and our world a better place,” the players said in the statement. “We believe that in diversity there can be UNI-versity. Intertwined, we represent the many people who helped build this country, and we are joining together to show that we are ready to continue to build, according to ESPN. 

“Let’s work together to build a society that is more fair and just.”

He sent out this message on his Instagram as well, talking about the social injustices the players are taking by kneeling.
