"Take a knee" was standard coach-speak when I was sitting on the bench near the real athletes in the mid-70s.

I would like to know why NFL players are "taking a knee" all over the media=

instead of "kneeling." I mean, "take is knee" is like: Guy walks into a
prosthetics shop. The salesman comes over and says, "Welcome, take a seat."=

Guy says, "Already got one, thanks, but I'll take a knee."
