Jaguars President Lamping apologizes to city over anthem protest

posted by Seth Harp - 

Well apparently you can have your cake and eat it too!   At least that's what the Jaguars are doing.  

In a letter obtained by First Coast News, Jaguars president Mark Lamping told the city's Director of Military Affairs Bill Spann that:  

"...we were remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem demonstration occurring on foreign soil has had on the men and women who have or continue to serve our country. Similarly, we today can better appreciate how standing for God Save the Queen may have been viewed negatively by our armed forces in Jacksonville and beyond."

The letter goes on to say "The notion never entered the minds of our players or anyone affiliated with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but today we can understand how the events in London on September 24 could have been viewed or misinterpreted. We owe you an apology and hope you will accept it."
