PHOTOS: Fans boo kneeling players before Dallas vs. Nashville Soccer Game

Multiple outlets are reporting boos from the crowd during a major league soccer match between FC Dallas and Nashville SC.

Dallas defender Reggie Cannon reacted to getting booed by saying

“You can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It’s baffling to me.” He added “As a team we try to give the best possible product on the field, and these last six months have been absolute hell for us. Absolute hell.”

James Tyler, ESPN:

Last night saw the first sporting event *with fans* (yikes) as FC Dallas hosted Nashville SC… and some of them booed the kneeling before the national anthem.

“You can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium.” — FC Dallas defender Reggie Cannon

There was a smattering of boos when players from FC Dallas and Nashville SC collectively took a knee during the national anthem on Wednesday.

Cannon also said “We had someone chanting U.S.A., but they don’t understand what kneeling means. They don’t understand why we’re kneeling.

“They can’t see the reason. They think we’re the ignorant ones. It’s incredibly frustrating. I’m sorry to have this tone, but you have to call it for what it is.” He added “It hurts me because I love our fans, I love this club, and I want to see the support that the league has given us, that everyone has given us, from our fans.”
