National anthem protests are dominating headlines this week.
On Thursday night, Nick Saban held his weekly radio show.
During the show, a retired veteran asked the Crimson Tide head coach about his stance on the protests taking place during the national anthem.
He was also asked if former Alabama players in the NFL who don't stand for the anthem would be welcome back on Bama's sideline.
Here's what Saban had to say.
