Ex-NFL star and current Denver Broncos President John Elway waded into the current “Star-Spangled Banner” controversy Tuesday, saying he believes in standing for the national anthem and wants to keep politics out of football.
Elway, a Pro Football Hall of Famer and the president of football operations and general manager of the Broncos, made the remarks during his weekly interview on the Broncos website.
“I’m one that believes in standing for the national anthem, and I’ve always believed that,” Elway said. “I believe that this is the greatest country in the world. We are very fortunate to live here, but it’s obviously not perfect.”
He added: “There are a lot of things that need to be corrected, and we will continue to work on those things. I’m one that really believes in standing for the flag. I understand the players and the way they felt from the comments that were made earlier in the week. They felt they had to go down and kneel and that’s up to them. Hopefully as we go forward we can start concentrating on football a little bit more. Take the politics out of football. But I think last week was a good show of unity by the NFL and hopefully this week we can move forward.”
