Texans' Mc Nair on anthem protest Can't have inmates running prison

That incendiary line lit up the Texans-receiver DeAndre Hopkins walked out of Friday's practice in protest-and now the team is weighing a stronger response.

Mark Davis (L), son of Oakland Raider's owner Al Davis, talks with Houston Texans owner Bob McNair (C) as he is greeted on the field before their NFL football game against the Houston Texans in Houston October 9, 2011.

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair took center stage after his comments apparently ignited a firestorm during the NFL's ownership meetings.

"Some of these owners are showing their true colors", Sherman said following Seattle's practice Friday about a quote attributed to McNair in an ESPN story in which the Texans owner said of players, "We can't have the inmates running the prison".

A day after issuing a public apology, Houston Texans owner and University of SC alum Bob McNair met with his players. We can't let you have your own beliefs.

Iyer, Siraj included in India T20 squad
On the other hand, Ashish Nehra will be part of the squad only till the first T20I, which will be his last at Ferozeshah Kotla. There are no surprises in the Test squad with Abhinav Mukund making way for a fit-again first-choice opener Murali Vijay.

One of those was African-American league executive vice president/football operations Troy Vincent, a former player, who told the owners that during his playing career he had been called many names, including the N-word, but "never felt like an inmate".

Fellow team executive and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has also been an outspoken critic of recent anthem protests, threatening to bench players who dared to take a knee. According to ESPN, the team will meet Saturday night to consider some form of a demonstration before the game Sunday.

McNair (left and right) has since apologized for the comments, but the NFL is dealing with a second headache because of them after controversy surrounding the national anthem seemed to be dying down. "I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players".

McNair met with his players Saturday morning to tell them he regretted making the comment. "I think that's what our team is trying to do". I used a figure of speech that was never meant to be taken literally. But as far as myself, I don't (have a thought on that). "I think it was embarrassing". Like I said, people saying how they really feel.
