The NFL’s rules that players “should stand at attention” for the national anthem could be changed to make it clearly mandatory for them to do so, a league spokesman said Tuesday.
NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart addressed the recent comments by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who said that any of his players who demonstrated during the national anthem would be benched.
Jones said President Trump had reminded him of the NFL’s policy on conduct during pregame renditions of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
The NFL’s game operations manual says the national anthem “must be played prior to every NFL game” and that “all players must be on the sideline” for it. Failure to do so “may result in discipline.”
how is this a bad thing? you are aware the NFL is a business and its key objective is the make money. its kind of stupid to piss off half your fan base and lose money because your overpaid jocks want to make a dumbass political statement.'
the NFL doesn't want to lose money because of a bunch of over paid meat bags wanna virtue signal
good call NFL
