DAVIE — Could locking arms during the national anthem bring the Dolphins bad luck?
It might sound strange — unless you’re a member of the Miami Dolphins, who locked arms in a show of solidarity last Sunday … then were upset by the New York Jets.
“A lot of people are superstitious,” receiver Kenny Stills said.
“Yeah,” Stills said. “So they figure, like, ‘We didn’t play well last week and we locked arms’ and all that stuff.”
Six players also kneeled before the Jets game.
Stills stressed that he doesn’t know exactly what form of protest against social injustice, if any, might take place before the Saints game. It’s complicated because the game will be in London’s Wembley Stadium, where “God Save the Queen” also will be played before kickoff.
“I have no clue,” Stills said of what might happen.
Stills theorized “everyone would kind of do their own thing, but that’s just my opinion right now. We haven’t spoken as a team. I don’t think we will. I think we’re all just focused on winning a game and that solves a lot of things.”
