(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — Spectators and fans of the Miami Dolphins will no longer see any of the team’s players taking a knee during the national anthem, the team’s owner said.

“All of our players will be standing,” Stephen Ross, a real estate developer, told the New York Daily News during an event Monday, where he was presented the Jackie Robinson Foundation’s Robie Lifetime Achievement Award.

“Initially, I totally supported the players in what they were doing. It’s America and people should be able to really speak their choices,” Ross continued.
