Tensions continued at NFL games on Sunday as fans and players found themselves at odds over national anthem protests.

The sound of booing fans filled M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, where the Ravens took a knee before the anthem. The team then stood as the Star-Spangled Banner played on.


Baltimore residents and Ravens fans weighed in on social media, some expressing anger towards the players while others took aim at the booing fans.

The debate went national more than a week ago when President Donald Trump said he'd fire players who protested during the game.



Since then, the league has wrestled with how to accommodate free speech while addressing fan concerns.

The protest has also reached student athletes at colleges, high schools and even youth leagues across the country.
