    After President Trump railed against the NFL protests taking place during the national anthem, instructing owners to deal with any player who took a knee to, “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired,” three Giants players decided to kneel down prior to the Week 3 game in Philadelphia. Olivier Vernon, Landon Collins and Damon “Snacks’’ Harrison all took a knee during the national anthem, part of a widespread movement around the league.

    Since then, the protests have mostly dissipated. Vernon is the lone Giants player continuing to kneel during the national anthem, usually flanked by Collins and Harrison, who stand with their hands on Vernon’s shoulder.

    Vernon told The Post on Thursday as he kneels, at home or on the road, he hears plenty of verbal abuse from fans.

    “You hear ‘coward’ and ‘stand up’ and ‘disgrace,’’ Vernon said. “It’s fine. As long as nobody comes on the field and touches me. You stay where you at, you’re going to be all right. They have a right. Oh yeah, I hear it all the time. If they don’t like it, don’t come to the game.’’

    Guess what Olivier? People aren't coming and sooner or later it will have repercussions reflected on your paycheck.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
