NFL DEMANDS Players Stand During National Anthem Or Stay Inside

The vast majority of America will call it too little too late, and they aren’t wrong, but the National Football League owners FINALLY voted on what to do when players take a knee for the National Anthem. The teams themselves will be fined.

“The policy adopted today was approved in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country — one that is extraordinary in its scope, resources, and alignment with our players,” [NFL Commissioner Roger] Goodell said in a statement. “We are dedicated to continuing our collaboration with players to advance the goals of justice and fairness in all corners of our society.”

The NFL is also committed to making money which will not happen when they tick off their fan base to the point that they quit attending games, and quit watching broadcasts. The league profits when advertising slots can be sold for a lot of money. With dwindling audience numbers, the owners of the Not For Long league are bound to be losing lots of dough.

As for what this policy means for the players, the message is simple: either stand for the anthem or stay in the locker room. The players are not amused.

“NFL players have shown their patriotism through their social activism, their community service, in support of our military and law enforcement and yes, through their protests to raise awareness about the issues they care about,” the NFLPA said in a statement.

“The vote by NFL club CEOs today contradicts the statements made to our player leadership by Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Chairman of the NFL’s Management Council John Mara about the principles, values and patriotism of our League,” the statement reads. “Our union will review the new ‘policy’ and challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.”

Goodell still insists that the entire kneeling thing was all about bringing attention to social justice issues throughout the country. Too bad he and the players have no clue social justice warrior causes really don’t mean much to a good percentage of Americans.

  1. I don’t care what you have to say. To stay in the locker room is still disrespect to our military. You have screwed up an I will NEVER watch one of your games. Your just doing it for money .
    If I remember right their rules were they are to stand during anthem. Not stay in locker room. So if you can’t stand by your rules I will not watch.

  2. I don’t care if they all break their necks, they have shown their true colors and will not be forgotten as traitors to the American people. I quit watching all sports over 3 years ago and will never watch sports again in my lifetime.

  3. I don’t care if they all break their necks, they have shown their true colors and will not be forgotten as traitors to the American people. I quit watching all sports over 3 years ago and will never watch sports again in my lifetime. Nothing but a group of overpaid goons.

  4. I will never again support these America-hating whining millionaire crybabies. It must be sad to be so FN STUPID that they can’t see how the optics of hating the America that made them multi-millionaires and whining about how oppressed they are. I’ve melted down my NFL logo jewelry and disposed of all team gear and memorabilia. My flag means FAR more to me than the NFL shield EVER could and I’ve got new things to do on Sundays–and I am now a big LSU Tigers fan.

  5. It should be “stand respectfully with the rest of the team or miss that game!” And it should have been in 2016 when it would have mattered. Most of the Americans that found other things to do besides watching the unpatriotic antics of NFL employees won’t be coming back!
