Patriots team take a knee during national anthem

After Sunday's show of unity by teams across the sport, Brady weighed in on the situation during his weekly chat with WEEI on Monday morning. "He's fired! He's fired!" Brady seemed to support Trump when he started running for president and one of Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hats was spotted in Brady's locker during the 2015 season.

Like most teams around the NFL on Sunday, the New England Patriots chose to protest racial injustice by kneeling for the national anthem before their game against the Texans.

During his radio interview Monday, Brady was asked if he thought Trump had bigger things to worry about than whether a player kneels during the national anthem.

Brady tells Boston's WEEI-FM that he "certainly" disagrees with Trump's comment that National Football League owners should fire any player who refuses to stand for the anthem. That's it, because right away I'm associated with what Donald Trump stands for and all that because I introduced him. That is right, ' " Brady said. He's my friend. He gave me a Super Bowl ring a month ago, right? "The one thing about football is it brings so many guys together". "That is how I try and live every day".

Dont'a Hightower and Malcolm Butler were among the almost dozen Patriots players who took a knee during the national anthem on Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium.

"I've been blessed to be in a locker room with guys from all over the United States over the course of my career", Brady said.

Crystal Palace have only avoided defeat once in the last 14 games against City, with a win back in 2015 at Selhurst Park. Competition is similarly strong within Guardiola's squad, especially when it comes to the forward positions.

Belichick said in a statement that he has tremendous admiration and respect for his players, but that he will keep conversations he had with his players private.

Brady, who said he has no problem with the boos, added that respecting the players' protests is important to being a good teammate. "You don't have to agree with everything". I don't think it's easy to play this sport. It's part of our democracy, as long as it's done in a peaceful, respectful way.

"I'm pissed off", Ryan said on ESPN Sunday.

For Brady, it seems, that brotherhood is stronger than the friendship he has with Trump.

Patriots team owner Robert Kraft, another longtime friend of Trump, also spoke out over the weekend against the president's comments, saying he was "disappointed". It's intense. You sacrifice a lot. I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal.
