All is not well in Seattle this offseason.

Two Seahawks players are claiming a woman followed them to the team’s training facility and then berated them over kneeling during the national anthem.

Defensive back Neiko Thorpe shared a video on Twitter of a woman in a white Chevrolet Tahoe who was talking to him and his teammate Mike Tyson while outside the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, Washington.

The video appears to have started midway through the conversation, picking up right where the woman is telling them that they should “stand up and be men.”

Seahawks are latest example of America’s fear of woke athletes

When the players asked the woman for her name she refused to tell them. Tyson told her his name was “Big Mike,” which only appeared to anger her more.

“Oh, f–k off. I don’t care who you are,” the woman said. “All I care about is the fact that my tax dollars pay for you to play and go f—–g play and get off your f—–g knees.”

“You done yet?” Tyson said before the video cut off.

The most ironic part of the conversation is that Tyson and Thorpe weren’t among the players who took a knee during the anthem neither this past season nor in 2016.

Richard Sherman admits to ‘vengeful’ in signing with 49ers

Buffalo Bills players take a knee during the playing of the national anthem prior to an NFL football game against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 24, 2017. The symbolic kneel comes two days after Trump's harsh comments on players who don't stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner." NFL player Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem last year as a way to peacefully protest police brutality against African Americans in America.

Players kneel during the national anthem

Seahawks fans are not having the greatest offseason this year, aside from fans wrongly flipping out on players.

The team has basically decided to hit the restart button by releasing star cornerback Richard Sherman and trading defensive end Michael Bennett to the Eagles. Seahawks fans have gotten used to being in the championship picture every year, but now they’ll have more question marks than usual with the end of the Legion of Boom era.
