ESPN made a controversial decision on Monday to suspend one of their main talents, Jemele Hill for two weeks and at least, two Seattle Seahawks aren't down with the decision.

Linebacker Bobby Wagner and offensive tackle Germain Ifedi both flashed their support for Hill in different ways on Tuesday. For Ifedi, it was a direct approach.
Meanwhile, Wagner was a bit more stealthy electing to retweet this offering from rapper J.Cole.
Wagner also supported Hill through her first controversy when she called out President Donald Trump. After Trump fired a shot at NFL players who kneel during the anthem using curse words, the NFL's most proficient tackler tweeted this.
Hill was suspended on Monday due to violating her network's social media policy for a second time, in regards to wading into political matters. The first was the aforementioned mini-feud with Pres. Trump. On Sunday, she mentioned that the only way for fans to truly voice their displeasure against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, whose organizations both instated anthem policies that require their players to stand, would be to boycott.
ESPN seemingly determined those tweets to be a call to action not sports commentary and suspended one half of their"The Six" anchors.
Count Wagner and Ifedi among those who don't think she did anything wrong.
