Listen to deafening ‘boos’ when Ravens went from hijacking the anthem to hijacking ‘PRAYER’ instead

The NFL’s Baltimore Ravens team likely thought it had the perfect way to protest without feeling a backlash at Sunday’s game.

But the fans, fed-up with the whole dog and pony show are frankly, not that stupid.

Prior to Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the public address announcer asked the crowd “to pray that we as a nation embrace kindness, unity, equality and justice for all Americans.”

And the team collectively took a knee.

Suddenly they want to pray?

Maybe it was the “equality and justice for all Americans” part coupled with the sudden desire to pray on the field that threw some of the angry fans off.

But, at least they were no longer  disrespecting the country.

“It wasn’t during the national anthem, so we didn’t have a problem with it,” fan Carrie Dillinger told the Baltimore Sun.

Earlier she and her husband Steele Dillinger, were on the verge of getting rid of their season tickets.

“I don’t know anyone who can go to work and protest,” she said prior to the game. “You can’t command respect on an issue when you’re drawing attention to it by disrespecting something else.”

“If they kneel during the anthem, I’m done. We’re not wearing our Ravens gear today, as our own protest. They need to honor the flag,” her husband added.

For some, this could be the type peaceful protest that represents a perfect compromise, but for others, it was too late and too fake.

Many fans on social media didn’t believe the team prayer was genuine.
