Dallas Soccer Star Reggie Cannon Calls Fans “Disgusting” for Booing and Chanting “USA!” as Players Knelt for National Anthem

Several soccer fans out of a crowd of about 3,000 in attendance booed and chanted “USA!” at an MLS game Wednesday night at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas between FC Dallas and Nashville SC as players and refs knelt in unison for the playing of the national anthem before the game. In a post-game press conference, Dallas star Reggie Cannon went off on fans for chanting “USA!” and booing the players, calling the fans “disgusting” and whining that his team has been through “absolute hell” the past six months because of the pandemic. Cannon ranted for over two minutes about the booing of the players for kneeling in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Cannon said the league had turned down a request by players to not play the anthem. Dallas lost 1-0.

Excerpts from Cannon’s rant attacking booing fans:
“I think it was disgusting. I think it was absolutely disgusting. You got fans booing you for people taking a stand for what they believe in and millions of other people support this cause…”

“Unfortunately it was played during these times when we asked for the anthem not to be played. It pissed me off that you can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It’s baffling to me…”
“…The last six months have been absolute hell for us. Absolute hell. Because We have to watch other people play soccer, and we’re just sitting home unfortunately contracting COVID from the unfortunate situations that we were put in…”
“We had someone chanting “USA!” when they don’t understand what kneeling means…”

  1. Let him go play for Nigeria if he doesn't like the fans or the National Anthem.

  2. As the guy said, "He knew what was going to happen." So basically the team took a knee as a provocation. And that is the kernal of the problem. The people are tired of hearing excuses about a race of people that cause most of their own problems. Violent crime, particularly black on white, black gangs, fatherless children, the riots, the looting, the lowering of standards in the public education system, the race baiters. It goes on and on. We're not the racists. We tired of the lies and excuses of blacks.
