A video has surfaced showing CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz saying that players who refuse to stand for the national anthem will do so as long as they are on camera.

The video was from the Cincinnati Bengals game against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 29. Deadspin first obtained the audio of Nantz late Thursday night. (RELATED: Clay Travis: Colin Kaepernick Is A Stooge [VIDEO])

“They’re going to keep kneeling as long as they have cameras right in their face,” Nantz can be heard saying in the background as the cameras zoom in players not standing for the national anthem. (RELATED: Hookstead’s Hot Take: America Stood Up For Colin Kaepernick, He Should Stand For The Flag)
